I've been using Kinkos to print up my invoices which need to be two-part forms. Their price per two-part form is now four times as much money as it was just a few months ago.

Could anyone recommend a website where I can upload my .pdf invoice file and have the two-part forms printed and shipped to me?

Kinkos was charging 25 cents per form but now they are 1 dollar per form. :shock:

When you consider business costs 1 dollar is not a lot of money and can be made back easily on a repair, but things have come up and I've had to change my invoice and it gets pricy having to buy more and more of these every time I need to change something.

If you will buy 1,000 or 2,000 any printer can be of help.

Otherwise there are forms companies online. Preprinted forms and then they add your name to it.

I guess I'm not as fussy, lol... :lol:

I've always printed my own, personalized with my bus. logo, etc. I downloaded some openoffice business templates I was going to use & then never got around to using them.

Why don't you want to print your own?

Have you considered other options. In a year and a half of business doing onsite work Ive always emailed clients receipts and invoices after the fact. I carry a small receipt book for clients that insist on an immediate receipt but in a year and a half ive never had to use it.

Added advantage is you get their email.

I've been using http://ncrforms.com/ for years. I go through about 1,000 forms in 10-11 months. They usually ship within a few days.

I just went through this, a month ago, I first made a separate email address, then I googled NCR printing and ncr forms, and just worked my way down, sending each one a form letter I created, I think I sent out aprx 30 quote requests LOL. don't jump right away when you start getting responses, give em about 2 weeks for all the responses to come in LOL.
I ended up going with a company (http://www.printlinkonline.com) in Battle Creek, MI, they were a little over the lowest price but they were in the same state, and were very helpful. And they had their own system on their site for uploads, so I didn't have to email the files to them. plus their printer resolution was REALLY high so I could go really small print at high res on the TOS for the back and up load the large file with no problem. I think I payed aprx $145 for 1k of forms (2k of pages) booked in 100 (might be 50)
I included the form letter I used in case you want to mod it for your use. :) I suggest spending a little time on some of the site to get a feel for what you might need and what they offer. Good luck! :)
Also, a good suggestion is to build your list first, and add em to the BCC list, that way after you decide who to go with your can use that list to inform the printers that a choice has been made and thank them for their submission.

Hello,

We are looking for a price quote for ncr forms with our layout.

pages: 2 (both white or 1 white and one yellow)
Size: 8.5x11
quantity: 1000
Ink: one color (black)
back Printing: Yes (Please include as seperate line item)
Numbering: Yes (sequential, color can be black )
Perforation: No
Booking: Maybe, please include as seperate line item

If you do not offer back printing or numbering, please still send a quote,
these two options are not set in stone.

Thank you,
