    What do some of your invoices look like? Do you have a bunch printed and then pen-in the information, or do you print them yourselves on computer, or do you print on a DM printer with 2/3 part carbon tractor paper?

    I just use the "stock" invoices available on QuickBooksPro, with some minor modifications that are easy to do. I usually print out two invoices at a time, send one to the customer, and keep the other.

    I have quick books pro, and send out statements ones a month. I like statements because it tells them when Iv been there to cut or do work. Also it tells them when they've payed. By the end of the year most people are getting a two page statement. It keeps a running record of everything iv done, and every received payment. I hit on a button, and it shoots them out. Then I double check them for errors. Next I put them into envelopes with windows. Each statement has the addresses that show through the windows. Good stuff.
