Default Perforated paper for Gopher

I have manage to get myself 500 sheets perforated 3 inches from the bottom for my invoices. It only cost me 43$ to get those done here at Kwik Kopy here in town. It was the only place that I found that they could do it

I will also be purchasing a bar code scanner (found one on ebay)





I hope I inspire people to get their paper perforated and get the bar code scanner for their gopher software

Here's a preview of what the barcode looks on an invoice



Then the customer would detatch the bottom part and send it to me so I can scan it in the computer and I don't have to type anything

Default I use the barcode software

I use it and find it to be a great time saver.

well worth the money!
You can use your barcode scanner for much more than just Gopher.
Put barcodes on estimates, coupons, equipment etc..
track maintenence records.

There's a competitor to gopher that uses a Mini batch scanner that is battery operated out in the field and allows you to scan in and out at a customers property for time tracking. Back at the computer, you plug in and download the data for analysis.

Thanks, Tom. I am looking forward to try that out

I am waiting at the end of the bid so I can bid on my barcode reader on Ebay
