Guest Check Style Guide

Understanding Single and Duplicate Part Checks

Single Part Checks: Checks with only 1 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: Checks with 2 or 3 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
