    What do you guys use for invoices for freelance work? Anything special? What's considered 'required information'?

    I want to get one in order and start using it, instead of just asking for monies in email. Especially since i'm starting to work with companies instead of random people...

    Its an invoice...

    Put your business name, what service youre giving them, the rate for that service, any additional items, and a total.

    I love that site... :rofl:


    But I'm looking for perhaps something with a touch of design, or maybe some thought put into it?

    I mean we're photographers here, right? Not fish salesmen.

    I just went on microsoft office's website and pulled one down, customized it with my logo and pertinent information.

    Done!

    I use FotoBiz for all my invoicing and keeping track of all my clients. It will output a basic invoice with all necessary information if you want, however, I make a duplicate in Excel that looks a little better to send to the clients. I save them as excel documents in case anything needs to be changed or altered, but print them as pdfs to send to the clients via email.

    If you're going to start working for companies, make sure you leave a spot for PO#s as they will often give one of those to you to keep track of the invoices coming in.

    Also, usage rights should be outlined very clearly on the invoice so there is no confusion and if the rights are non-transferable, make sure that is on there as well.
