email all my commercial and 99 out of 100 of residential--many pay via credit cards--I started emailing 10-12 years ago...made yearly contracts and accepted credit cards and has made my life a lot easier--

billing solutions allows you track invoices, who has viewed them, payment reminders etc...

yes 99% of my billing is emailed through quick books & they have the option to pay online through the invoice. As for paper invoice i can't remember the last time i printed one out. Anything that isnt billed online is cash acccounts, most of the time

I started out e mailing with quickbooks but soon realized that everybody doesn't keep up with their e mail nearly as much as snail mail, cash flow was terrible so I went back to mailing invoices, I wish I could do automatic billing with a credit card but most folks here won't go for that.

It's a .des file which is associated with the corel software.

You can also use any standard software and use a free .des converter to get it in the correct format.

what software would be best for doing this? i'm thinking either word or maybe photoshop? i have both, but dont want to waste time starting it in one or the other.

I think just about any program that allows you to save as a .des file.

I think the file is associated with Corel programs though.

Qb has an editor that does most anything...fancy invoices don't get paid faster than well laid out and uncluttered...

.des is exclusive to Corel Draw. Even Adobe Illustrator (their competitor and probably more popular) doesn't support .des.

I'm looking to make a more professional looking estimate/proposal than the typical form. i know QB has an editor, but it is clunky for trying to change too much. my invoices probably won't change, just the estimates.
