Is there any FREE invoice/reciept site on the web that you can edit with business info and charges and print out? I'm using MS Word now and just looking for something a little more professional. Thanks!

If you are asking about invoices and sales receipts, then you must not be using an integrated financial management package. What are you using to track your expenses and income?

As somebody suggested, QuickBooks is able to do that tracking, plus produce any kind of invoice or sales receipt you need. Templates are available, but also the function to create you own documents, customized to your need. I don't use sales receipts, but do use invoices. I made one with a return-tear off that has worked well. But, the standard template for a service invoice works well too.

how did you do the return tear off? Buy the paper already perforated?

I am curious of this as well. I would like to provide a tear off.

The paper has no perforation. The tear-off line is merely a line of dashes. It is positioned exactly at a point down the page for a fold when putting it into a #10 window envelope (a 1/3 position). The bottom portion is printed for a return address of the customer, and my address, with the pay information in block on the far right side (e.g. invoice number, dates, amount, etc). I include a #9 double window envelope, so the return address and my address fit into the two windows respectively.

When I do the fold, it is at this line. A small note above the line suggests tearing and returning the bottom 1/3 in the #9 envelope. My intent is that they save the upper 2/3 for their records. However, some customers refold the page, along the same fold lines. The whole page is returned, but the address information is displayed through the two windows.

If anybody wants to see one, send me a PM with your email address, and I will send a .jpg of the invoice via e-mail.

You need to get a program that will keep up with your numbers for you.

I use Quickbooks and don't know what I would do without it. It produces every report you could ever need and allows you to see what your numbers are doing on a daily basis. You can e-mail or print estimates, statements, or invoices with the click of a button. I think they have an add-on exclusively for landscapers.

You can order perforated paper from Intuit, the makers of quickbooks, or any other check manufacturer. You can also order envelopes for sending invoices and checks. Just print them and put them in the envelope, all addresses are automatically in the windows.


No matter what product you choose to use, you need to have a program in place that knows what to do with your numbers, unless you can write programs.

x2 on the Quick Books simple start. I use it and have been using it for some time and I can't really think of any complaints. Other than I have not figured out how to "void" an invoice on it. I'm sure it can be done I just haven't figured it out, never really need to other than once or twice a year.
