for those that print invoices from truck.

what kind of printer have you found works best for printing invoices in your truck? I have an epson nx430 and nx330.. i usually kep one of these in the truck... but they are starting to print lopsided and are pretty unreliable. Im looking for something else faster and smaller.

I use an IPhone and an app called invoices2go. You can use your logo with your info and just email the invoice.

I thought about doing that, but then you need a computer/ipad in the truck. I just use a generic 2 part ncr form, then fill in the customer information, work perfomed, pricing, etc. Works great for me and never had an issue. Its a well put together form and has a large section for notes/job specifics. Printing in the truck seems overkill.

I rather do something like that too, I hate dealing with the computer during the day, but with gopher software it seems about the easiest way to print off invoices for my lawn application customers because of all the info i have to put in there. I'm getting faster at it.. about the only good thing is, at the end of the day i don't have to enter data for the lawn applications i did for the day.. its already done. i would rather a pre-printed invoice, then i can do the comptuer work at the end of the day when i'm not sweatin my ass off... haven't found a way to do that in gopher yet..

i just use a little netbook, its pretty simple.. and if i leave the customer a note i can atleast type it, my handwriting is almost as bad as my grammer.

Yeah I need to work on my printing skills too, I use a letterhead type blank form if I have to leave a note. I dont use any software other than word & excel. Making the forms was easy and I can customize them any way I wish, and they are very professional. I try to pre-write my invoice before I leave the house so Im not sweating on the paper and writing it in the truck, seems to work. For next year Im gonna try to minimize paperwork, right now I bill monthly for cutting and hoping to just do one bill for the season.
