    Got my applicator's license, insurance, flags, contract, etc. However, I need to find a good printer that can print the fertilization invoices/service call receipts that you leave with the customer after each lawn application. Something that has boxes for wind speed, temp, service done today, recommendations, etc.

    Are you looking for a home printer, a portable printer, a printing company, or just a template for you forms? Your question is a little fuzzy. The HP-PSC1210 acts as a printer, scanner, and copier and can be purchased at office depot for $94+ tax. Thats not much more than the ink replacements for most printers. Good office machine and small so it doesnt take up a lot of room and eliminates having three seperate machines. Hooks to a ps2 port so it can be hooked upto laptops but might be a little to big for a portable printer.

    I used a company called nebs to make me a three part form to use for application.I told them what information I needed on the form and they worked with me until it was just the way I wanted it.Mine is a combination record sheet and invoice.I only fill out one form so I can bill the customer and retain the records on one sheet. Their website is www.nebs.com.Hope this helps.

    Just looking for a good printing company that has reasonable prices and does good work. I need a two copied form, one for me, one for the customer, that has all pertinent lawn info, wind speed, temps, lawn info, etc. Before I left each day, I would, with my home computer, type in the customer name and address. At the customer's location, I would write up the invoice/work order. Write in was ferts I put down, any recommendations, etc.

    Hi Mike,

    Why not just use a local printer? There are many forms posted on this site that you could use as a model. If you want software to handle this, you are welcome to download and try out ours.

    We Use a Lexmark Optra S laser printer and Realgreen software (i doubt its what your looking for, $4000 + software) .

    I have never seen any forums from nebs that would work to well with lawn treatments, plus there prices are vary high on most things. turfmarketing.com has a custom department that i bet could make what you need. they seem to do most of there stuff for microsoft publisher so you could get a template and print them off as needed.

    Just got a canon i70...small enough to fit in my laptop case...fast enough for the office...with battery and infrared ability, it's perfect for my truck in the field...

    Highly recommended.
