Word is one of the most widely-used document programs on the planet. Word gives you many options for creating a gorgeous invoice template with custom fonts, colors, layouts, and tables. Word also lets you save files as templates, so creating new docs and invoices is simple. You don’t have to begin with a blank page, though. Use our free MS Word invoice template to jumpstart your invoice creation.
Excel is the spreadsheet program of choice for many business owners. You can use Excel to create a template with formulas for calculating the total. Excel is the best program for using and managing formulas and calculations. One drawback is that fewer people have immediate access to Excel, but you can export your invoices as a PDF to avoid this problem. If you are ready to get started, check out our Excel invoice template.
If you don’t use Word, then you probably use Google Docs. It offers many of the same layout and customization options as Word, so you can create your own invoice and presentation. Many people prefer Google Docs because it’s easy to share files through Google Drive. Your customers may also have Docs on their phones and tables, so it’s more mobile friendly. We created a nice Google Docs invoice template to help you get started.
Sheets is an alternative to Excel that works in the Google app ecosystem. It offers many of the same formulas and layout options. Sheets lets you email copies to people as a PDF to avoid any access issues when people do not have Sheets installed on their phones. Sheets are also shareable and accessible on many Android smartphones and tablets. Jump into our Google Sheets invoice template to get started.
We also offer a PDF invoice template you can download and customize. This may be a good option to ensure customers receive their invoice in a format they can open on mobile devices. PDFs are less easy to edit, though, so you may face a slightly steeper learning curve. The great thing about PDFs is they show up looking the same everywhere so your pretty formatting will always look good.
