Did you find that you were able to save printing costs using pre printed invoices over a laser printer? If so where are you getting them, Something else I had considered this spring was to start having customers being e-mailed their invoices to reduce my postage costs which are about $800 a year.
Qxpress is the part that caused the prob w/ 2 types. (because it does the invoice gnerating in Qb I do not even see the qb invoice screen. and because I have been using the preprinted inv since 2000). I have not checked into a laser printer. My printer is really pretty fast and prints faster than I can fold and place in my envelopes. I seal and stamp after all are stuffed. i started giving the option of email last year and about 1/3 went with it. Some don't have computers only use them occasionally and whatever so I don't think I'll be able to eliminate snail mail completely. but this year after last being my trial year, I will try to get all new customers set up email if possible. Another thing w qxpress is if you want to prepare estimates in it you have to jump up to the platinum, i'm on the gold. another 400 bucks. So to update 300per year and 400 for jumping to platinum thas 700. this year. so now's the time to look around and see if there is something better before I put more into what I have. Maybe what I have is the best. I wont know till I do more research. but I have found a couple and one I want to look at more indepth.
I appreciate your help and thought with this post and me. And we pray for a great season for all the professional companies in 2010.
