Unlike the old carbon-sheet books that get ink all over your fingers, these carbonless books make a carbon copy of your hand-writing on the top page, using NCR (no carbon required) stock in each page. Write your invoice once, and get two, three of four copies!

- The cheapest way to print is with black / greyscale, in which case you should remove all the colours from your artwork. The numbering will always be printed in red ink.
- Leave a space for where the numbering will be on the page. Also provide a separate file to show the placement of the red numbering on each page. Use the starting number (eg 0001) as an example.
- Allow for a 15mm margin on the side of the page where the perforation will be.
For a comprehensive guide to preparing your NCR artwork, and artwork templates available in Microsoft Word, Google Docs and Adobe Illustrator please read our Artwork Guidelines.

In Australia, the ATO will guide you as to what your invoices require. Read more at the Australian Taxation Office.
All you need to tell us is the starting number of your NCR books, for example “001”, or “251”. We will take care of the rest, and print sequential numbering on the rest of the pages, eg 002, 003, 004. Your invoice and proof will also confirm the starting number. We also have a record of your last set of printed NCR books, to help you work out which number to start from with your next printed batch of books.
Each page of your NCR books comes with 1 standard perforation, so you can easily tear out a page. Extra perforations are available for an extra fee from $60. If you are aiming to tear out multiple invoices or receipts off each page, please note you may also need extra numbering for each slip, also available for an extra fee from $60.
Yes you can print on the back of your NCR pages, such as terms and conditions. There is an extra cost, but it does allow you extra space to print often lengthy terms and conditions. Some businesses prefer to print a link to their terms and conditions online, to save printing, and to keep their terms updated online. Please note that printing on the back of the page can show through to the front side, so follow our artwork guidelines to minimise this effect.
Yes you can, however the print cost for full colour invoice books is usually more than most businesses can accept. To keep the printing cost down, print in black & white (or greyscale), or choose a single spot colour (Pantone colour). If full colour NCR books will help your business, ask us for a quote.
You can print separate books for your quotations, invoices and receipts. This keeps your quotes, invoices, receipts and other forms neatly separated in separate books.
To save some extra cost of printing, you can combine some forms in the one book. For example, you could write up a quotation that becomes an official invoice once the customer accepts the quote. The same piece of paper could also serve as a receipt once paid. It’s all in the wording used on the page. See our free templates.
