NCR Pads — Artwork Set-up + Options

NCR Pads

Reverse

INCLUDES:

  • Glued into Pads of 50 NCR Sets per Pad, at the Top Edge.
  • Good quality 75gsm – 82gsm NCR paper.
  • Strawboard Back
  • Loose Writing Shield

Printed Full Colour CMYK Digital on:

1 side only - 4/0 is the main FRONT side.

2 side double-sided 4/4 - when printing TERMS & CONDITIONS on the reverse, please use a maximum 50% Black tint or Grey.

If producing double-sided artwork with Terms & Conditions on the reverse, remember to allow for Orientation (we work on a VERTICAL TURNING AXIS – see Drill Holes section below) and off–set your artwork by the exact opposite on the reverse side.

THINGS TO DO:

Image Resolution 350dpi CMYK.
Transparency & Blends Make sure ALL transparency have their layers Flattened, saved as Postscript Level 3 with TIFF Preview active.
Quiet Zone Keep all important text and elements within 5mm WHITE clear-zone from trim edge.
Terms on Reverse Create as a 50% tint of Black for best results (it'll not show through then).
Bleed 3mm Bleed off non-Gluing/non-Binding edges only (NCR Sets / NCR Pads / NCR Books).
Fonts Convert ALL fonts to vector Outlines.
File Format Supply as all-CMYK Press-Ready PDF to actual size (if no bleed), or with 3mm Bleed + Crops.
Saving Files settings Saved as Press Ready PDF using Postscript Level 3 Binary (not ASCII) with TIFF Preview active.

THINGS TO AVOID:

Thin Lines / Hairlines Convert all Hairlines to 0.5pt minimum.
Avoid large areas of Solid Ink Potential cause of "Set-off" by over-inking the NCR paper and it not having time to dry before its guillotined.
Transparency Make sure ALL transparency and transparent elements have their layers Flattened, and saved as Postscript Level 3, on Binary (not ASCII), with 'TIFF Preview' button active.
Don't include Numbering on the actual artwork, but describe it in the relevant "Sequential Numbering Location" text field above.
Avoid tints on Writing areas – Ensure areas to be written on don't have any ink, or a 10% Maximum Tint if your client must have it, for best transference potential.

Size of NCR Pads

A4 (210mm x 297mm)
A5 (148.5mm x 210mm)
A6 (105mm x 148.5mm)
DL (99mm x 210mm - aka 1/3A4)

1/2A4 (105mm x 297mm tall - available on request - £POA)

GLUING EDGE

Glued into Pads of 50 NCR Sets per Pad, at Top edge as standard.

SIZE CLEAR ZONE GUIDELINES

Keep 8mm clear zone around all edges for important text and images, although bleed is available off the three non-glued edges - in that case, CROP MARKS will be required (don't need Bleed marks!) with 3mm BLEED on the three non-glued edges if required.

WHEN TO USE AN NCR PAD over a SET or BOOK

Shake the tree and ask your customer HOW the NCR product will be used? If it will be used by the van or lorry drivers out on the road, then NCR BOOKS are your only option due to their robustness. NCR Pads will not take the abuse of being thrown around a footwell or lorry cab and will fall apart.

NCR Sets / NCR Pads – Office desk Environment only.

NCR Books – Out on the road, or when a more robust product is required, or when they’re taking an NCR Set directly out of a box one at a time.

FORGET EXTRA PRINTING PLATES – USE A "LEGEND"

Some customers will request that their copy sheets have slightly different artwork on. Don’t!

Instead we would advise that you use a ‘Legend’ on each sheet indicating who gets what copy etc.

As there are then no plate changes required, that single line of text (a “Legend”) at the bottom of all the pages achieves the same goal.

Plate changes by sheet take longer to process and are more expensive to produce and only capable via Litho 1/0 options — the 'Legend' is an excellent and efficient way of overcoming this and saving your client money!

Legend

Sequential Numbering option

Usually created as 5 digits (up to 7 digits max.) as 00001 etc.; do NOT put the numbering on the actual PDF artwork (otherwise it'll print on the job) but leave space (12mm tall x 30mm wide) describe its location in the box below. However you can start the sequential numbering wherever you like e.g. 01001-01500 etc. - numbering size is usually based around 14pt Arial and Black ink as default. We only do CRASH Numbering (thus the number is printed on the top copy but the pressure goes down through all the sheets).

We can alter the size and colour as it's digital numbering (e.g. 10pt in Red ink) on request.

Sequential Numbering Position

You need to describe the position such as "Top Right beside Service Report", "Top Left beside Letter A", "Centre Top under Address". DON'T include numbering on your actual PDF artwork otherwise it'll print on the job. We need 12mm tall x 30mm wide of free space on your artwork for the sequential numbering area.

Numbering Position

Drill Holes

2 Drill Holes are based on standard 80mm centre-to-centre ring binders, whether for 2-hole or 4-hole variants.

We use a 5mm Drill.

NOTE: Remember if placing TERMS & CONDITIONS on the reverse to be aware of Orientation / Positioning through a vertical rotation axis.
