Hmm, we miscommunicated here somehow.....
I was speaking of copysets.. We used them back before fax machines
were common, medical records were usually color coded... (the color
coding was stopped in most facilities when fax and xerox machines
became common, as the colours would only copy as black text on a white
Copysets came in all sorts of colours for the paper portion.. Colours
such as "goldenrod" (gold), "canary" (yellow), pink, orange, blue,
green, violet, white etc.. The carbon portion was on very thin tissue
, and was always black carbon as far as I know, and was lightly
anchored on one end of the paper... My favorite stupid trick when
overly-tired from pulling a double shift was to put the darn things
the wrong way under the top sheet of paper, so all the carbon text was
backwards on the copyset paper.
