LOL, about the quantity.

I went with the carbonless from a mom-and-pop print shop, they work great (and it only took about 2 days).

As far as the quantity, I went in business with another lawncare professional and we had 3000 printed up. When business started rolling in, he up and quit.
They have sat in my filing cabinet since 2002. My son and I just came in the house from burning them. LOL. so much for the quantity savings!!!

I suggest getting a small number printed and reorder later. The print shop will already have it on file and it is very easy for them to print more in a timely manner.

As far as how I bill, most of my older clients (I'm refering to how long they've been with me, not there age), I leave the bill in the door and they send me a check. All new clients will be billed by mail monthly.

Would you mind sending me a copy of your service agreement? I am trying to tweak mine and I think you being local could be a good source.

Why 3 part? With 2 part carbons, they sign, you them the copy, and you have the original for you records. That's what I like about the books. Your copy stays in the book, nice and secure.

many times i leave the whole thing in their hands.....they think it over for a few days. i forget what i told them. then they sign the 2 and send me the top piece.

if i had 3.....i'd take one and still leave them 2 to sign.
