Understanding Single & Duplicate Part Checks
Single part checks are checks with only one part – writing is not duplicated onto multiple sheets.
Paper: Made with durable, light-weight paper
Board: Made with durable, heavier-stock paper
Multiple part checks are checks with two or three parts – writing is duplicated onto multiple sheets with carbon insert, carbon backing or carbonless capsule coating.
Carbon: Carbon insert sheet is placed between copies
Carbon Backed: Back of the top copy is carbon-coated
Carbonless: Sheets are capsule-coated to produce multiple copies – no carbon used for duplication
