Document sizes

Standard International Paper Sizes come in three ranges – A, B and C. The most widely used for general printing and stationery is the A series.

A4 is known as international letterhead size (297mm  x 210mm). It's easy to handle and has space for a lot of information.

A5 is half A4 size, 148mm wide x 210mm high. A5 books are great for when there isn’t enough space to carry and store an A4 book.

Portrait or landscape?

Portrait means the docket or invoice book is vertical, with the spine on the long side. A landscape docket or invoice book is horizontal and opens wide, with the spine on the short side. What you choose depends on how much and what sort of information has to go into the books, and whether the person filling it in has to do it standing up or will be able to lean on a desk, counter or car bonnet.

What is NCR?

Although widely referred to as No Carbon Required, NCR was originally named after National Cash Register, a US software company which also invented and manufactures electronic cash registers, magnetic card strips and ATMs. Two chemists working at NCR invented carbonless copy paper in 1953.

Duplicate carbonless copy paper has ink micro-encapsulated on the underside of the top sheet, and a clay coating on the face of the sheet below. When writing on the top sheet, the tiny ink capsules rupture and react with the clay to duplicate what was written on the top sheet. Triplicate carbonless has an intermediary sheet with clay on top and micro-encapsulated ink underneath.


Our full range includes premium quality invoice books, quote books, purchase order books, cash receipt books, delivery docket books, consignment note books and time sheets. Plus, we have some of Australia’s most competitive prices for carbonless invoice and receipt books.
