Most templates here are targeted to be printable on A4 paper, as the default template shipped with Uniform Invoice Software. This simple invoice template shows you how to change the paper size.
While A4 paper is common in many business documents, you may decide to choose another paper type and size for your invoices.
In this tutorial we'll create a simple invoice template that changes the paper type from "A4 8.27 X 11.69" to "B5 7.17 X 10.12 inch". The base template used in this sample is c4051 Simple Invoice Template - Discount Amount Field. The result of this customization, a simple invoice template that is printable on the B5 paper size, could be downloaded for free from InvoicingTemplate.com.
The reason for changing to this new paper type is that it is common and also similar to the original paper size. Changing to other paper sizes and types is possible, but more time and effort may be involved in order to rearrange the fields and controls to create a professional and useful invoicing format and layout that is printable on a single page.
Here are the steps to do this customization.
If the page break cannot be removed by narrowing the column widths, you need to consider removing some columns from printing.
There are still 2 rows left to be put onto the second page. Check the entire printable form we found that R6, R7 and R20 are all empty rows and could be narrowed. So we make them smaller. If this is still not enough to make the form be printable on a single page, you may need to consider narrow the heights of those non-empty rows.
If the difference between the new and original paper size is major, the basic techniques - applied in this tutorial - hide or narrow rows / columns - may be not enough. You need to consider other options such as removing / hiding fields.
Also, you may need to switch between several views many times - normal view, page break view and print preview etc.
Changing the paper type and size of an existing invoice template is usually a time-consuming job, like it in the real / physical world. Sometimes it even results in redesign of forms. Hope this simple tutorial, and the simple invoice template created in this tutorial, give you some ideas and a good starting point.

In most business situations the quantity numbers on an invoice are not addable - for example, if you are invoicing for both goods sold and service rendered. But there are cases where you want to add up quantities on an invoice and show the sum on the sales report.
Sometimes an invoice is also referred as purchase invoice from the view of the buyer. This general-purpose Excel-formatted purchase invoice sample includes two editable/fillable columns, Description and Amount, and a Taxable checkbox column.
