  • Continuous Forms - at right angles to the marginal line hole punching and including both margins.
  • Register Forms - side to side (parallel to in-between set perforations).

Exact Quantities

It is the standard policy of Need to Order to provide it's quotes and finished products based on exact quantity ordered. We only quote and print Over/Under runs at Dealer request.

All displayed quantities and related priving on the website is based on exact quantity calculations.


Over-Runs or Under-Runs

Over-runs or under-runs will not exceed 10% of the quantity ordered. Need to Order will bill for the actual quantity delivered within this tolerance. If the Dealer requires a guaranteed quantity, the percentage of tolerance must be stated at the time of quotation. In the event the Dealer requires a guaranteed quantity, Need to Order will add an up-charge to compensate Need to Order for related wastage. The "Guaranteed Quantity" up-charge is incorporated into website pricing and all estimates by Need to Order when the job is quoted. The up-charge for "Guaranteed Quantity" is required because of collator and other bindery or finishing wastage. The press must over-run each part of a job in order to provide an adequate supply of each part for collator set-up and run wastage. In addition, bindery and other finishing operations will also incur wastage in the course of set-up and run.

of God or other causes beyond the control of Need to Order. In such cases, schedules will be extended by an amount of time equal to the delay incurred.


Proofs - Color

Because of differences in equipment, paper, inks and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in color between color proofs and the completed job is to be expected.
