products: forms

We can print in colour or black only onto a range of NCR carbonless papers, make them into loose pads, collate as single sets, or bind them into neat pads with wrap over covers and backboards.

Our ability to react quickly makes us perfect for those projects where you simply have got ‘no time’ left to launch a product and you still need compliance literature to back up or substantiate your research – or in situations where you want to marked test a couple of versions of a particular piece of literature.

Complicated multiple part CRF projects are easy using carbon colour, and as seen below we employed a much heavier weight backing sheet and bound these as patient records – all of which helped ensure data is kept safe and secure during the whole research period.

When it comes to simple one part forms the choice is easy, most of the paper we use can be easily written on with a ball point pen or biro – and as we proof almost every job on the paper it will be printed on you can check yourself that you are getting the result you need.  Some of the specialist plastics we use are less successful, but dry wipe laminates applied to forms which need to be continually updated (like rest room check lists) makes life easier when you want a more sustainable solution.

Pads of forms can easily be made up – whether as multiple part printed one or both sides.  Or if you prefer your forms can be glued as sets – an option favoured by some organisations as it makes it easy to share out amongst different users.

We can also offer numbering, bar coding or the addition of security referencing / watermarking in colour or clear highlight to make your forms more secure, unique or more easily traceable.



Novarix user manual

Novarix develops innovative medical devices in the field of Intravenous (IV) therapy and brings them to market. carbon colour worked closely with them to design, typeset and artwork this complex ‘twelve language’ user manual for use in Western Europe.  It was printed in Black & White with a colour section for the UK English section – other languages were separated by a tabbed edge allowing better identification.

A good manual should be legible, easy to read and it should be easy to find particular information quickly and there’s no reason it shouldn’t be beautiful to look at too.

IV Therapy is used on a widespread basis across the world to aid the treatment of patients in hospitals, administering fluid, drugs, and nutrition. Over 1bn cannulas are used worldwide on an annual basis and an estimated 90% of all hospital admissions in the USA involve having a cannula inserted. Taking a blood sample is one of the most common medical practices in both the acute and primary care sectors.  Their latest product is the IV-eye, a near infra-red vein imaging device designed to aid clinicians in finding good veins for both cannulation and blood sampling.
