    Does anyone have a sample of an invoice that they send out to their customers that they could send me? I want to make mine look professional, but I am having a difficult time. My e-mail address is smurphy@centralcatholic.net

    Thanks in advance.

    If you don't have QuickBooks or Quicken you may have a program in your Microsoft word/office which can work but i agree with the QuickBooks.

    I third that!

    Anyone else here who doesn't use it? For the couple hundred bucks...it will save thousands, maybe even tens of thousands in the long run.

    Stop waiting, if you are serious about business.....get it...now...go...run ...hurry!!! :nod:

    I use Blizzard Buster as well. I have had it now for 3 or 4 years. Pretty happy with it.

    This is just a question for the guys that send out two copies of one invoice.
    Why do you do that? When they send the check back to you in the mail with QB all you have to due is pull up that customer and apply the payment. I personaly only mail out 1 invoice to each customer, some send it back others keep it and write the invoice number on the check.

    I use Groundskeeper Pro which is a bigger verision of Blizzard Buster. I love it and say its worth every dime. When you print an invoice there is a tear off portion that they mail back with payment. Its set up to go in double window envlopes.

    I do not send two copies..after I got QB that is. When they send there payment I type ALL the check info into quickbooks for my records. Also, in the notes section I put when the check was received in the mail and the date on their check. I keep track of the customers who pay before due-date, on-time, and consistently late. That way, when it comes time for applying late fees I'll let it slide on the customers that always seem to pay early/on-time.

    Tom Smith,

    I'm 97% sure they do. They being Intuit or whoever Intuit uses for their office supply. After all, you can create invoices through quickbooks for the envelopes with the clear plastic so when you fold the invoice and place it in the envelope the customers address appears. Don't see why they wouldn't due the perforation thing. You could cheat and just place a dotted line across the bottom of the page and type in small font "cut along dotted line" or something of the sort...

    FireParm84 I tried to PM you but either your setup to not recieve PM's or IM not setup to send them. Either way, email me. I have a proposition for you.

    Tom....Go to an office supply store (like Staples)...they sell a little hand held wheel that you can run across the paper that will do this for you. Seems like a little extra work, but if that's what you need, check them out. I've seen them but can't remember exactly what store they were in.

    LOve the quickbooks pro; have this for couple years now and going for the 2005 (pro) then just purchased clip classic to run the business. That will be it for software for three or so years

    I only send one invoice and i get the same response, some send it back w/ payment and others keep it and put invoice # on the ck.
