    Check this out I found a guy to make custom forms for Quickbooks. Now I know you can change somethings in your own file but what a pain in the ass. All I did was up load a file and it works perfect. I have been trying for years to get a dam nice looking for out of quickbooks. First impressions mean the world. He will add your logo and change your wording too. I spent like 3 hours last year trying to make mine look ok and never got it like this. He only charged me like $125.00. you cant do all the changes in quickbooks you need a drawing program. I went and did one clean up and paid the guy no brainer.

    here is the stupid form I have been using for years and the new one

    As I'm reading your post I'm thinking...what an idiot...you know you can easily edit your template yourself...you paid someone...ahahahha. And then I scrolled down and saw your new form and I have to say that it really does look soooo much better. Very nice!

    P.S. - The only thing for me is that I use double window envelopes for mailing everything so I'd need to maintain that format...I'm sure it could be done though.

    If you want to try and customize your own quickbooks template you can.

    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.

    How do they line up when your "return address" section has just the customer information again and your address is all the way over to the right under your logo?

    They do. I know that there are different size double window envelopes. Not sure of the number I would have to ask my office manager. But we send it in a double with a return envelope for the customer

    Yes you can even do all the editing in word. You don't even need Corel. But it's your time on lining up all the data fields. So when you hit print they all line up right and fit in your double window envelopes. If it was $500.00 I would have done it. When I sell to commercial accounts I smoke other bids all the time. I put the cost right to the customer

    Was just throwing that out there for anyone who wondered how it was done.

    In our case, I've got the skill set to get it done, so it's just another small project for me. That and there isn't much to do in the winter time, so I've got the time to do it.

    But your right, and it goes with anything, if your time is better spent paying someone to do it so you can be more productive in other things, then by all means pay someone to do it. As business grows, I've slowly started paying people to do services I normally would have done myself, but not only can our biz now afford it, but my time is better spent doing other things.
