On this page, you see the option “New Templates” and a list of previous orders. If you want to create a new one, click “New Templates”. If you want to modify the old one, then select the order that needs to be updated.
Select the type of document and layout
Before starting to customize a billing document, you need to choose the type of document and layout based on your requirements.
Click “Create Theme”
After choosing the type and layout of the document, click “Create Theme” to start customizing
Customize your unique invoice templates with “Branding & styling”
Put a checkmark in the checkbox “Show logo”. Just with one click, your company’s logo will be displayed on the billing documents.
In the template, the previously set logo will be immediately filled in. You can adjust the logo's size as you desire.
There are a number of things that could be shown with the color you choose.
Not only the available color bar, but you also can use your favorite color or the main color of your business by putting a checkmark in the checkbox “Use custom color”.
There is a font system available that you can apply to your documents. More than that, you also can use your own font by putting a checkmark in “I have another font”. Then, you get your font URL on the blank bar to apply your font.
Moreover, you also can modify the font size and line height.
Modify your store’s information
On the Options page, you are able to choose any option that you want to change. You can make a decision about whether the supplier/customer/shipment information would be shown. In addition, you also allow to choose if you want the items's image or quantity, discount, or total price displayed on the documents.
Attract your customers with a “Thank you note”
With this option, you can control the information displayed in the document by putting a checkmark in “Show shipping method”, “Show order number”, and “Show order note.”
Especially, you are able to create your “Thank you note” which expresses your brand’s message. This part allows you to make a great impression on your customers.
Step 4: Save your invoice templates
After all the customization, do not forget to click “Save” to have your unique billing templates, allowing you to easily increase your brand identity.
You may make example invoice templates using the invoice template PDF as a small company owner, and then modify them to meet your needs. These invoices may be edited, so you can change fonts, add or remove photos, update or add new content, etc.
Therefore, you may utilize the editable invoice template PDF, personalize it, and send it to your customer for quicker payment rather than producing an invoice template PDF from start.
