Printing Lingo: What is Sequential Numbering?
Sequential Numbering, also known as Consecutive Numbering, refers to the printing of ascending or descending identification numbers so that each printed unit receives its own unique number.
This unique number can appear in one position, or in multiple positions, on each document. In addition to providing a method for easy reference, sequential numbers provide a high degree of accounting control. Sequential numbers are often printed in red ink so they can be seen easily.
Virtually any printed item that needs unique identification can be sequentially numbered. For example, sequential numbering is frequently used on a variety of multi-part NCR forms and padded documents, such as contracts, invoices, purchase orders, receipts, quote forms, and order forms.
In addition, hang tags - such as inventory tags, inspection tags, and repair tags - are often printed with sequential numbers. Checks and raffle tickets are two other common examples.
