When it comes to judging the difficulty of each job in freelance industry, there is no denying that graphic designing is one of the toughest jobs
to do. To find a perfect blend of your ideas and your client's demands can sometimes prove to be a mammoth task. Yet, with their expertise, the graphic designers, constrained by the creative demands of their clients, make it through, with exquisite designs and logos, making it all look easy, something that we witness daily in the form of posters, billboards and on television.
When someone does a job as time consuming and mentally draining as graphic designing, there are some responsibilities which they would absolutely love to be relieved of. Even though no freelancer would like the idea of getting paid late, but the strains of such a job would make the worker want to automate the process of invoice making. Besides, the calculations of the charges
need to be accurate in order for the payment to be done smoothly, and they are bound to be error prone if the mind is worn out. An invoice is useless if the billing details
are incorrect, and such an instance can damage the professional image of the worker as well.
An easy way to saving yourself from the headache of invoice designing is to use templates
. Bonsai's templates for graphic designers offer distinctly brilliant designs for your invoices. The templates are designed to match your profession, because we know that as graphic designers, you would want your invoices to reflect your creativity in order to give a better impression to all your clients. All you have to do is fill each bit of information in its respective field as written in the template, and once you save the file, your invoice will be ready. Not just this, these templates are designed in Excel format. This is suitable for your creative image as excel allows each cell to be colored
according to your choice. So depending on the information stored in each cell, you can add colors to your invoices as you wish.
Another convenience that Excel offers is in the form of different mathematical operations that can be performed by writing simple formulae in the cells
. A simple example is the calculation of total charges
for each job. The variable would be number of hours worked
and the multiple would be hourly charges
. With the help of ì*î function, the elements of these two cells will multiply and the value of total charges will appear in its respective cell. Numerous other calculations can be performed in Excel, depending on the functions involved.
