  1. Damned straight, think yourself lucky, Red! ;)

  2. Hilarious! And thanks for demonstrating the NCR carbonless.

  3. Love this post, Rev!

    Carbonless paper – what a concept! I see some “non-carbon” paper stock available in Japan. Does each sheet serve as the copy agent for the page below?

    1. basically each page is coated with a certain compound that interacts with the different compound coating the page above it when the pressure from the typeslug impacts. That same compound interacts with the padding compound to cause the “sets” to stick together. I have 2-part, 3-part and 4-part carbonless, depending on how many copies I need. (:

  4. And you can even get it in 1 part, as used by many in duplicate deposit slips. Just pressure makes an image, no need for matching second page. It used to be fairly reasonable, but now it is about $32 a ream. Great when testing a typewriter in a thrift store that has no ribbong.
