Sequential Numbering Printing
What is sequential numbering?
Sequential numbering printing refers to printing numbers in sequential order on sets of forms or other printed pieces. Each form or piece gets a unique number and is printed in either ascending or descending numerical order.
How to use sequential numbering in printing
Sequential numbering is commonly used on carbonless forms, also known as NCR forms like invoices, purchase orders, contracts, etc. It can also be used on other printed items like raffle tickets where you need a unique identifying number.
Printing of sequential numbers
Sequential numbers can be printed almost anywhere on a sheet or form and can be positioned horizontally or vertically. Numbers can also be repeated in another position on the form. When developing your artwork, consider putting a box for numbering, making it easier for your customers or employees to find and reference a specific job or transaction. You may also differentiate your number by color. Most printers allow a choice of colors, typically black or red, to make your number stand out. Start your sequencing at any point you like, to pick up where you left off on your last print order.
Many printers have a special numbering machine which can accurately guarantee unique numbering in a precise location. Quality control procedures are in place to ensure numbering accuracy.
