If you are running a shipping business, this Excel-formatted (xlsx) shipping invoice template helps you to create beautiful shipping or tow truck invoices. On revising the original shipping invoice template, we added a printable Volvo heavy truck background image.
On creating invoices, Excel invoice templates has many advantages over the other formats, like Microsoft Word (docx), PDF, HTML / CSS, or even Adobe Photoshop (PSD), etc. Maybe programs like Photoshop is possibly able to generate beautiful invoices (however, without a proper Photoshop-based invoice template, it is a time consuming work to do), none of the other formats could do automated calculations using formulas like Microsoft Excel, which is critical if you need to create several invoices each day.
On the other hand, to some people it may be not intuitionistic enough when they want to make their invoices stand out from competition by using a background image. Although Microsoft Excel does provided a "Background" command on the "Page Layout" ribbon tab, the background image or picture set in this way is removed (not included) in the printed result.
Fortunately it is still possible to print an image in the background of a worksheet. This technique could also implement watermark effect on your invoices, as shown in Simple Invoice Template with Printable Watermark.
In this sample invoice template, we use c5013 Shipping Invoice Template (1) as the basic invoice template, add a truck background image to its print result (as well as the PDF shipping invoice), and discuss the key points involved in the customization process. PDF is an idea format for sending out your electronic shipping invoice. Here on InvoicingTemplate.com we also have a list of PDF invoice templates for you to choose from.
First, if a cell has a background set, the cell background covers the truck background image. Our original shipping invoice template has background set for a number of cells, like the column heading cells "#", "Description", "Quantity", "Unit Price" and "Line Total". The rows in the invoice detail section are set with striped gray background. To clear all the background settings for all the cells in the Print_Area range, follow the steps below (However, make a backup copy of your current template before modifying it).
Secondly, we deleted all "pick up" buttons as they are not needed for now. Our new Uniform Invoice Software version implements an "On-Sheet Picker" that shows a small button when you click one of the supported fields, including all fields defined in the "Customer" database table, the "Invoice#", all the fields on the invoice detail section, "Sales Rep. Name" and "Payment" term. So it won't affect the usability if we delete the "pick up" (magnifying glass icons) buttons. Here is how you can delete an icon button from the "Invoice" worksheet.
The last step is to add the image. To do this, follow the steps below.
In this shipping invoice sample, we let Excel itself to resize and adjust the brightness and contrast of the background image. There are more professional image tools that can help you optimize your images for background usage, such as Photoshop.
As you can see, with a litter trick we've added a truck background image to our shipping invoice template. As you can see from the screenshot images, the result is pretty good. You can download this shipping invoice template for use for your shipping business, or search and download any invoice template for customization!
