Billing and estimate forms
« on: July 14, 2015, 05:51:46 PM »
Can any of our professional members recommend a stock set of forms that are relevant to either restoration or reproducing period pieces? Many years ago i used a stock form as a template for my own forms but now I.am looking to have something more relevant and computer friendly.

Do you still have the original forms?

No John. Years ago my business was a combination of general woodworking and custom finishing. Now in my semi retirement I focus on only high end repairs, restorations and handmade reproductions. I am looking for forms that would be specific to the trade and be compatible to my Mac. It could be something as generic as separating design, labor, materials, shipping and allow me to download my logo. Perhaps some of the membership would be willing to share their own forms as a springboard to designing something that is applicable.
Thanks for your response.

Take a good look at Quickbooks. You create your own list of what you bill for. You can create estimates and hit print or send via e-mail.
