Non-collated Pre-perforated Sheets

What is Non-Collated Carbonless?


Non-Collated Carbonless Paper is a versatile alternative to traditional "pre-collated" carbonless paper, offering unique advantages for specific business needs. Unlike pre-collated sheets, where the sequence is predetermined (such as white, canary, pink), non-collated carbonless paper provides a single color and coating option. This option is available in a diverse range of seven vibrant colors, offering flexibility for various applications.

Each color of non-collated carbonless paper typically comes with a choice of one of three distinct coatings:

1. CB (Coated Back): This coating is applied to the back of the carbonless sheet, allowing for image transfer when pressure is applied to the front. It's commonly used for forms where only one side requires duplication.

2. CFB (Coated Front & Back): In this case, both the front and back of the carbonless sheet are coated with microcapsules. This coating configuration enables image transfer not only from the top sheet but also from the bottom sheet when pressure is applied.

3. CF (Coated Front): With this coating, only the front of the carbonless sheet is coated, allowing for image transfer exclusively to subsequent sheets while maintaining a clean back surface. This is suitable for applications where privacy of the back side is crucial.

The term "coating" refers to the microcapsules applied to the carbonless sheet during the manufacturing process. When a pen or pencil applies pressure to the paper surface, these microcapsules burst, resulting in the transfer of the image onto subsequent sheets in the desired color sequence.

How do Single Sheets work?

The key to a successful carbonless form lies in selecting the right coating combinations and arranging the sheets in the correct sequence. Carbonless forms are invaluable for businesses and legal documentation, enabling the efficient duplication of information. Here's what you need to know:

  1. Coating Types:
    • CB (Coated Back): The top sheet in a carbonless form typically features a coating on the back (CB). This coating contains microcapsules that respond to pressure from writing instruments, like pens or pencils.
    • CF (Coated Front): The bottom sheet is usually coated on the front (CF). The front-side coating contains microcapsules that react to pressure as well.
  2. Intermediate Sheets:
    • Between the CB (top sheet) and CF (bottom sheet), you can include up to four intermediate sheets with a coating on both the front and back (CFB). These intermediate sheets allow for multiple copies to be generated simultaneously.
  3. Sequence Matters:
    • To ensure successful image transfer, it's crucial to arrange the sheets in a specific sequence. You can collate (combine) the sheets in two sequences:
      • CB, CF: This sequence involves the top (CB) and bottom (CF) sheets. When pressure is applied to the top sheet, the image transfers accurately to the bottom sheet.
      • CB, CFB, CF: In this sequence, intermediate sheets (CFB) are positioned between the top and bottom sheets. When pressure is applied to the top sheet, the image transfers through the intermediate sheets to the bottom sheet.
  4. Image Transfer Mechanism:
    • The image transfer mechanism relies on the interaction between the coated sides of the sheets. When the coated sides meet, they are primed to transfer the image effectively, ensuring that your business forms or legal documents maintain clarity and consistency.
  5. The Role of Uncoated Sides:
    • Conversely, when the uncoated sides of the sheets meet, the image transfer mechanism becomes inactive. This is an essential aspect to consider when handling carbonless forms to prevent unintentional image duplication.

By grasping these principles, you can create carbonless forms that yield precise and reliable copies. Whether you're running a business or dealing with legal documentation, understanding the coating combinations and sequence is pivotal for efficient and error-free record-keeping.

Types and Uses


While most carbonless paper comes pre-collated in 2-part, 3-part, 4-part, 5-part, or 6-part sets with fixed color combinations, there's a more flexible and efficient way to create carbonless forms. By starting with single sheets that are already separated, you gain the freedom to print and then collate when your printing is complete. This approach offers numerous benefits, making the process smoother and more customizable.

Here's how it works:

  1. Single Sheets:
    • Begin with single sheets of carbonless paper that are already separate from each other. This eliminates the need to manually or mechanically undo pre-collation, saving you time and effort.
  2. Printing Freedom:
    • Once you have your single sheets, you can print on them as needed. This flexibility allows you to customize each sheet to suit your specific requirements, whether it's for business forms, invoices, receipts, or any other documentation.
  3. Color Combinations:
    • With single sheets, you can arrange the colors in a vast variety of combinations to match your preferences or the preferences of your end users. This level of customization ensures that the final product meets your exact needs.
  4. Seven Vibrant Colors:

By adopting the single-sheet approach, you empower end users to have their carbonless forms precisely the way they desire. Whether it's for personalization, branding, or ensuring visual clarity, this method offers unparalleled creative freedom and flexibility.
