    Hey guys...

    I have just started my own company and I was wondering if anyone could help me on a invoice design. The type of invoice I was thinking of was a letter type... What's best?

    As you say, I do invoices like a letter.
    Top left:
    Your/company name/logo
    Customer's name
    Customer's address
    Invoice date

    Top right:
    Your/company address
    Phone numbers
    E-mail address

    Centre heading:
    "Invoice"

    Main body:
    A 3 column table: Item No., Description, Cost
    with total invoice cost at bottom of column.
    (Often there are only one or two items.)

    Bottom:
    Payment/bank details

    My invoices and written quotes (often I send simple emails for smaller quotes though) are saved as templates in MS Word. I have my details/logo etc at the top along with client details, then a big table/box with the works done. I normally put materials at the bottom of this box with any breakdown if necessary. With a second narrow box to the right with the costs in it.

    I find it really quick, and can write up to maybe seven invoices in around thirty minutes. That includes saving as a PDF to then email on.

    The formatting has gone all funny on the mock up below, it looks a lot neater than in the piccy. And the main box is a lot bigger than below.
