Form Design, Printing and Processing

The accuracy and reliability of the data captured from any form is largely dependent on two things: the forms used and the extraction process. Accurate data begins with a properly designed form, paper or electronic. The form is an important first step in any successful data capture exercise.

Optical Character Recognition (OCR), Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) and Intelligent Character Recognition (ICR) are technologies used to electronically extract data from forms completed in print or by hand. The hallmark of a quality form design is a form that is easy to read and easy to complete, which results in more reliable and accurate data collection. Smart design is the foundation of any successful print and data capture project. A thoughtful strategic approach to design is the most important way to ensure cost-intelligent, high-impact results.

Form Design

DPK has been designing and implementing machine readable forms in Jamaica for over five years. DPK designs machine readable forms which are intended, from inception, to consistently and reliably provide accurate data using these technologies, as required by our clients. Machine readable forms are more suited to some circumstances than others, and DPK diligently guides our clients through the minefield of potential pitfalls which can result from the inappropriate application of this technology. Our partners Scantron are also experts in the design of machine readable forms with decades of experience implementing forms for a variety of applications.

Our form designers are eager to share their expertise and service on content development, artwork, and proven print enhancement techniques. Leveraging this extensive design knowledge base is a fundamental way to optimize the success of your next project. To further enhance your materials,several options are available for you to consider:

  • Highlight your materials with photography, line art, illustrations, and various typefaces.
  • Customize your pieces by embossing, foil stamping, or adding your logo to promote your organization's identity.
  • Expand your audience by printing in multiple languages.
  • Incorporate popular numbering methods including serial numbering, bar coding, lithocoding, and OCR-A and OCR-B numbering to ensure data accuracy.
  • Make processing easier by adding corner cuts, alignment notches or perforations to your scan form.
  • Improve processing performance by using drop out inks for critical data capture areas.

Personalize Your Material

We use advanced design and printing techniques to personalize your assessment and survey materials including cover letters, scan forms, and any other inserts requiring personalization. Personalization can include simple identifiers such as student ID numbers or complex demographic information. This makes filling out the form quicker for the user and scanning more efficient and precise.
