Continuous Computer Paper

The continuous computer paper, also known as dot matrix computer paper, continuous forms, is designed for dot matrix printers. These printers use impact printing technology, where tiny pins strike an ink ribbon against the paper to create the image.

Made from carbonless paper, the computer paper is perfect for producing business forms, invoices, and other documents that require multiple duplicate copies. Our computer paper comes in a variety of sizes and color options to meet your record-keeping needs, including blank, white/canary/pink, and green/blue bar formats. You can select from configurations of 2, 3, or 4 ply options, ensuring there are enough copies for all parties involved.

The computer paper is easy to use and creates clear prints to keep track of multiple copies. These multi-part papers can be fed through impact matrix printers, with perforations to create the proper form size. The pin-feed holes along the side are also perforated for easy removal. You can find the regular computer paper sizes below. If you don’t find the sizes you need, kindly contact us. Our sales representative will be glad to help you.

FAQs on Continuous Computer Paper

holes on computer paper

The holes on the sides of the paper, also known as pin-feed holes, are used to guide and feed the paper through dot matrix printers. They engage with tractor feed mechanisms in the printer, ensuring the paper feeds precisely for accurate printing.

divided lines on paper

These divided lines allow you to tear off individual forms easily after printing. This makes it simple to separate copies and distribute them to different parties.

Continuous computer paper utilizes carbonless copying technology. This means the paper has multiple plies (layers) coated with special chemicals. When pressure is applied during printing, the chemicals from one ply react with those on the layer below, creating a copy of the printed image on the lower plies. This eliminates the need for separate carbon paper sheets.

Common sizes for continuous computer paper include:

  • 9.5 x 11 inches (241 x 279 mm)
  • 11 x 15 inches (279 x 381 mm)
  • A4 (210 x 297 mm)
  1. Load the paper: Feed the continuous paper into the printer following the manufacturer’s instructions. Usually, this involves aligning the pin-feed holes with the tractor feed mechanism and feeding the paper until it is properly engaged.
  2. Adjust settings: Set the printer settings to “continuous feed” or a similar option.
  3. Print your document: Send your printing job to the printer as you would with standard paper.
  4. Tear off forms: Once printing is complete, use the perforations to easily tear off individual forms.
  5. Remove pin-feed holes (optional): Some continuous paper has perforated pin-feed holes that can be torn off for a clean edge on your forms.

Here are some examples of dot matrix printer brands and models that use continuous paper:

  • Epson: LX-300, LQ-310
  • Brother: HL-2500C, ML-3210
  • Star Micronics: SP712, TSP100
  • Okidata: ML320, ML340

Dot matrix printers were once very common, but are now less prevalent due to the rise of inkjet and laser printers. So you can see the dot matrix printers very rarely in modern offices.
