Wave is looking good, I just need to see if it does customized statements.
Thanks EireStudio I’ve just had a look at curdbee – seems pretty good but they don’t do the statement thing (yet)
I’m looking for a new invoicing app as I can’t seem to find one that covers all the bases:I need an app that does the following:
- Personal branding and the choice to send an invoice with or without the branding
- Send one invoice to multiple email addresses (eg. one to client, one to accounts and one to the project manager)
- Send the invoice as PDF (or sim) not a link to the invoice online
- Send payment reminders to late payers
- Has Paypal integration
- Automatically record payments made via Paypal and send a thank you for paying to client
- Monthly statements with customization of details
- A huge plus is an ipad app version of the software
I currently use zoho as it fulfills most of the requirements but it generates an unusable statement (I have to manually add all the relevant statement details in acrobat).
Other apps don’t do the payment reminders or paypal integration. I’m considering Blinksale as it seems to be quite progressive.
What do you use?
IVIilkman saidThen any printer that will print spot colors will be able to do the job, you just need to get the right pantone match color, I know the Pantone color for copper is either 876U or 875U (the one is a darker copper). The pantone colors for spot jobs have either a ‘U’ or a ‘C’ after the color, the ‘U’ stands for uncoated and the ‘C’ stands for coated. But you’ll have a much happier client if you can get the sample to a printer and get them to match the copper as you can also make up custom metallics with Pantone if you print a metallic color with any of the regular colors.
Thanks For the suggestions however my Client already has Items that Have to be Matched. He has Business Cards Printed on 130lb White Paper that has been printed Ivory and Copper metallic. The Metallic is some what muted but its the look the client is after.
Most of the online printing services would need you to specify the colors, so you would need to find a printer that will match your sample, rather than you taking the risk and getting the color incorrect.
Metallic inks on uncoated stock don’t look metallic after printing since the uncoated stock absorbs a lot of the color. If you want the metallic look, you’re better off using a coated stock or a foil, you could use a coated stock so you get the metallic feel and then use a spot UV varnish on the areas where you want a matt or uncoated look. I don’t think it’s possible to get a metallic ink to look metallic on uncoated stock. Another alternative for a metallic ink is to use metallic paper like this http://www.morningprint.com/product/card.php?acode=20
I need a new iPad stylus and was wondering if anyone has tried the Blue Tiger or Sensu Brush styli?
I’m looking for a stylus that is accurate, responsive and glides well; particularly for painting and drawing. I have Jot but I find it only works well for slow deliberate type of stuff. I prefer to draw, paint and write fast and the Jot has a tendency to skip.
My short list of styli include the Blue Tiger, Sensu Brush, Lynktek TruGlide and the Wacom Bamboo. Has anyone tried the Blue Tiger yet (or any of the others). The Blue Tiger seems awesome but I’m not too sure how much is hype and if any of them are worth it. I currently use my ‘free’ no name brand (it came free with my iPad iPearl cover) stylus all the time, and not my more expensive Jot.
I’m ordering online as we have a very limited styli range available locally so I can’t even test them out.
Thanks, I’m currently using a mix of apps as each one has features that I like. It would be great to find an ‘All-in-one’ app, but some of the apps with more features are more complex to use and I found myself spending lots of time inputting lots of info before I could even try and schedule a project.
I’ve staterted using ‘Timeline’ for basic project management -it also generates status reports where you can toggle sections on or off. It doesn’t have any time tracking, so I’m using ‘Toggl’ to track the time I spend on projects. I’m also using‘Wunderlist’ for a basic to do app and an app called ‘Pocket Expense’ to track expenses and income.
The heartache for the families who lost somone precious and irreplaceable must be overwhelming, as well as the scarring on the young minds and hearts that were there.
I find it hard to understand the bitterness that would drive someone to such an extreme act…
I’ve been around for sooo long that the first photoshop I worked in only had 1 layer and no history panel (that = only 1 undo).
