Quality continuous forms, continuous paper guaranteed
Continuous forms are manufactured from a continuous web (roll) of paper that is not cut into size prior to execution. Continuous forms account for a major amount of the business forms manufactured today. Processes through dot matrix printer, continuous forms are often preferred where a copy is required. NCR paper (no carbon required, carbonless) or bond papers are normally used.
Advantages of using us for your own continuous forms
We recognise that continuous forms utilize a principle which is applied in many industries; quality is paramount to our clients along with offering the very lowest costs in today’s tough economic climate.
Traditionally continuous forms are specified first by the depth (length-top to bottom) and then the width (left to right) measured in metric inches rather than centimetre’s or millimetres, common sizes are 11 inch deep for example, a continuous form of this size would likely be produced on a press with a 22 inch cylinder circumference, allowing 2 continuous forms to be printed with each rotation.

Continuous forms finishing
Holding the elements (parts) of a continuous form together is performed on a multi-web press, on a collator or a final bindery operation. Most continuous paper is either finished with:
· Crimps - known as perfs (perforation) normally within the half inch margin of the form
· Line gluing – normally used in harsh environments keeping the documents together, parted usually by a margin perforation
· Multifex – green tie within the sprockets visually as a small band through the centre of the sprocket holes
· Numbering – can be a sequential number or complex lasering of barcodes
