Carbon paper

From Fancyclopedia 3
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A very thin sheet of paper coated on one side with a carbon-based ink. To make a carbon copy one creates a sandwich of a sheet of paper on top of a sheet of carbon paper (carbon side down) on top of another sheet of paper. When you type on the top sheet, a carbon copy is made on the second sheet. A multi-carboned approach can also be used.

Carbon paper can be re-used with declining quality results.
