How you present your bills for payment to your clients may not seem as important as, for instance, the quality of your services or the products offered _ but actually it is. Are you still using the traditional invoicing? Your clients won't be too enthusiastic when forced to put aside a good portion of their valuable time in order to sort through your paper invoices, file them and maintain payment timelines. You, on the other hand, will have to put up with the hassle of managing all that paper: can you really afford to lose so much of your time on paperwork, when it's better spent working on other aspects of your business?
Don't Forget: You're a Designer _ must be professional Imagine this, you're at an expensive restaurant. Every detail is perfect: the food was fantastic, the service excellent and the atmosphere rich and plush. Then, you receive the bill, which is printed on cheap paper with low_quality ink. What would you remember about this experience? Most people spend hours on their website design, business cards and resumes but then use a template for their invoice. The invoice is your last contact with your client, and it should share the attention to detail, branding and style of your other elements. By creating a beautiful, clear invoice, you are saying that you care about the little details. Most importantly, make sure you have all the necessary information. Make sure there are no spelling mistakes and that your spacing is consistent. Customize your invoice as much as you can. Your logo is a must, but colors and a style that match your other branding items will make it a joy to pay (well, as much as is possible).
