Help I went to website for invoice templates and then found envelopes. What are you all using to mail invoice? I looked at #9 Size white 24# Single Window and the I looked at white 24# double window. With the single window I would have to put a return adress on envolpe? How much work to set up invoice to use double window?

I use a single window #10 that shows customers address and use a clear self printed return address label as well.

For a payment return I use a single #9 window envelope.
I have custom made an Invoice layout using MS Word that puts my mailing address in the window. I also Use a 3 inch tear off as a return stub. Works very well and if you would like more info, Feel free to email me.

Hi grounded,

Could you post the invoice layout?

Happy to post invoice. You will notice a watermark in the center with my logo and my logo appears in the return envelope window as well. I ran 500 of these at office depot for $20.00 and the custom paper is $8.00 a ream online. Dont waste your money on a color invoice. Customers are only interested in the bottom line.

Just a quick follow up. Double window #10 envelopes are twice as much as single. The invoice was drafted for a single window but with a little tweek, you can format for a double window. My goal was to save on Ink and reduce wear on my printer. Hope this helps

Thanks for the reply, like the idea to try to save wear and tear on printer. I continue to search for quick and easy ways to complete billing process. Great information.

When invoice is printed and folded 3 times and placed into a single window #10 standard envelope the invoice box shows in the window area. Can you move the invoice box with customer no. to the right or make a little smaller so it does not show in a standard #10 single window envelope?

Would this help (http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=2;t=675)?

Review this post from the Invoice faq (http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/cgi-bin/ikonboard.cgi?act=ST;f=2;t=686).

No I dont see an area about how to shift or move the invoice box that contains customer no.invoice no.invoice date etc.
Thats the box that is still displayed in the window but its only the lower left corner of the box.

Hi Apex Lawn 2003,

Right now, the two things you can shift is the remittance stub height and the address/logo position. That section above shows how to move the address/logo position.

I use #9 double window for invoices, and included an addressed #8 5/8 for return. I used my lazer printer to print the return envelopes.

Here is a copy of my return.

Here is the back of my return envelope.
