How to Customize Your Graphic Design Invoice Template

How to Customize Your Graphic Design Invoice Template

The first step to creating an invoice for graphic design work is choosing the right template for your services and your desired payment schedule.

When you’ve selected a template, you can plug in your business and client info, add in details on the engagement and deliverables, and enter the amount due. You can even customize the design to match your branding, in just a few minutes.

Got it looking the way you want? Go ahead and send it off. Your clients will be notified that they have a new bill and will get automatic reminders if they don’t pay right away.

And if you want to streamline the process even further, you can save the template to reuse later. Just make sure you include the following:

  • An invoice number, based on an invoice numbering system that matches your brand (#1, 1001, or 0001)
  • Your business details and contact info to make it easy for clients to connect with you if have a question
  • The date you send the invoice and the invoice due date
  • A clear explanation of your services, including design package names and a clear description of each service
  • Pricing to help clients see where costs came from
  • Extra charges (like taxes) and discounts that affect the total

If all the pieces are in place, you’ll be in good shape to reuse the template for future payment installments and client projects.

Why Do Graphic Designers Need Online Invoices?

Get paid on-time

The last thing you want to deal with is clients who drag their feet when it comes time to pay for your design work. HoneyBook makes it easier to get paid on time, by sharing invoices via an online portal and sending regular email reminders to keep your invoice top-of-mind for your clients.

Deliver a Personalized Client Experience

When you’re in the business of creating beautiful, customized designs for your clients’ businesses, you can’t afford to be using generic or off-brand designs on your own. With HoneyBook, you can create perfectly on-brand invoices and share them through a personalized (and branded!) client portal to provide your clients with top-notch client experiences.

Simplify Taxes, Installments & Discounts

Unless you love adding up taxes and discounts, totaling up billing statements can be a painful exercise. Using HoneyBook, you can put all of that math on autopilot, by simply checking a few boxes and entering percentages. Everything else is taken care of for you.

Focus on the Design Work You Enjoy

Let’s be honest, the reason you run a graphic design business is because you love to create and design -- not because you love finances. But you also can’t afford to neglect the financial side of your business, since that’s what keeps you in business. HoneyBook helps you create and manage your invoices in a snap, so you can get back to your clients and passion projects.
