    I WAS thinking about providing return envelopes this season along with the invoice.
    how many of you do it and any down falls in doing so?

    No down fall but the price, buy them in bulk and it will not cost very much. I think we got like 2000 for about 160 something I'm pretty sure. Check size, black ink only. Alot quicker w/ AR, helps with cash flow, some people have them back 2 days from when they get mailed out.

    Always send invoices with a return envelope, it's just the pro. way to do it. When I get bills, they always have return envelopes.

    I send them out with a sticker with my address already on it. All they have to do is put the check in, stamp and send it. Most everyone uses them.

    I found many people paid quicker when I added them. Gives them 1 less excuse for why they havn't sent it out:clapping: Now, for the rest of the 99 excuses left......:cry:

    If you have them printed up in bulk the cost is a few cents per envelope, I have mine printed with my logo along with return address. its just another piece of the puzzle to look professional.

    An old guy that had an insurance company told me customers would pay quicker if the bill had a return envelope with it. I started putting them in with the bills, and people DEFINATELY paid quicker, and all the checks got to the right place. I just buy a bunch of 3x6 envelopes, print out my address on them, Add some lines up in the left corner for their return address and a little spot on the upper right corner I put "place stamp here". They still use their own stamp, but I always get paid quicker now.
