Ah, the humble invoice. This document has a reputation for being a bit tedious, especially when you have to create several in a row. But the way you design your invoice actually says a lot about your brand.
First, it represents your business to customers and clients, which means it's important to be professional and consistent in your invoicing. It presents vital information about your products, services and pricing, so the invoice's layout needs to be easily read and understood.
Many people turn to invoice generators when they need to design a few invoices quick, but that's not always the best choice. They offer very little flexibility or customization of the invoice template, resulting in the same design over and over. It's hard to show off your business's unique personality with a cookie-cutter design.
Instead, create a strong brand impression with one of our free invoice templates. Thanks to our intuitive online designer, you can adjust fonts and colors to match your brand, then upload your logo (and other images) to complete the look. Drag and drop design elements with ease, then download print-quality PDFs. It's so simple and attractive, you'll wonder why you ever bothered with programs like Microsoft Word.
Still using Excel for your invoice templates?
Excel works great for spreadsheets, and the formulas can be handy for making invoices. But what do they say about your brand? All those square boxes and awkward text placements don’t exactly project a stylish, professional image.
Google Sheets gives Excel a run for its money by allowing multiple users to collaborate on a single document in real time... but you’ve still got the boxes and text to deal with.
What if we told you there’s a way to create professionally branded invoices that handle data, text and images with ease?
Ditch the Excel spreadsheet and say hello to a brand-new way to create beautifully branded invoices. We’d like to introduce you to an online invoiceing tool that works well and looks good. Say hello to Marq.
Supporting text & graphics
Excel spreadsheets primarily exist to deal with numbers. (Unless you’re making charts, then you need labels. But we’re talking about invoices here.)
If you’re making invoices, you’ll want to brand them by adding your company logo. There’s also client project information, special notes on your invoices, and other things that Excel wasn’t really created for.
Marq's invoice generator is versatile enough to handle everything you throw at it. Data automation? Check. Graphics that match your company’s brand? Check. Want to import an InDesign file, add some data automation, and lock it down? We’ve got you covered, and it goes way beyond numbers.
