As we visited he told me some of his new responsibilities would be ordering all of the printed forms that would be needed in such an operation. Well as an employee of CarbonlessUSA.com I could not let a golden opportunity like this pass me by, so I asked him what type of carbonless forms do you use?

go site Dead silence! Finally he said "What is a carbonless form?" I said are you kidding me, you have been using carbonless forms all these years and you don't even know what they are? So I proceeded to explain to him that it was the white, yellow and pink paper that is stuck together and when you write on the top copy it goes through to the other copies without using carbon paper, thus it is called carbonless paper! Oh! Is that what they are? We always just called them business forms.

opzioni binarie investendo 20euro This conversation got me thinking, if my friend does not know what carbonless paper is, how many others don't either? Or better yet how do you explain to someone, like a print buyer, what it is or how it works?


Even though I have been printing carbonless paper since 1976, (the year I started my magnanimous printing career), I was not sure I could explain it properly. So having the awesome internet at my disposal I did a little research. Typing, "What is carbonless paper?" into the Google search box brought me to Wikipedia. They actually have a listing for carbonless paper! It's called "Carbonless copy paper". Look it up some time, you'll like the good illustrations that help explain how it works. Wikipedia.com

It said in part: iqoption opiniones Carbonless copy paper (CCP), http://digital-tonic.co.uk/digital-tonic-blog/how-to-sell-conversion-rate-optimisation-internally-to-your-boss/ non-carbon copy paper, or idol dating rumors 2014 NCR paper is an alternative to carbon paper, used to make a copy of an original, handwritten (or mechanically typed) document without the use of any electronics. The process was invented in 1952 by chemists Lowell Schleicher and Barry Green, working for the NCR Corporation, as a biodegradable, stain-free alternative to carbon paper.[1] Early product literature piggybacked on NCR's corporate name by calling the paper source No http://airshow-magazin.de//specials/meiringen Carbon Stock market closing time today Required paper, a bacronym of National Cash Register.

How about that? My explanation was actually very accurate. What a great invention these two chemists came up with. If you have ever used carbon paper, you know how messy and problematic that it can be. Now you can fill out forms where ever you are, and not have to worry about what do I do with the carbon paper now. Carbonless paper has changed the business forms world.

It is similar to the rotary phone. The rotary phone was life changing and offered great convenience to many families. But with changing technology the way we communicate has changed for the better. Now our phones are neither rotary nor require any wires. Now we are able to communicate anywhere and anytime we want to. Although rotary phones still work and can still be purchased, they are not as convenient or as practical as a modern cell phone. Carbon paper can still be purchased and used, but it is still messy and impractical in most cases.

As technology continues to evolve we will continue to see a push for a paperless society. I am certain that at some time even carbonless paper will eventually go the way of the rotary phone. Many businesses today are already working toward that direction. My friend that was mentioned at the beginning of this blog works for just such a company. Even though much money has been invested to become paperless they still find themselves depending on good old reliable carbonless paper forms. For now they remain the easiest and most economical way for businesses to make multiple copies of a document anywhere and at anytime.
