An order sheet is what all your customers and potential customers will fill out when requesting for products or services from you (generally just physical goods). It will clearly spell out what they are ordering in what quantities, and in what special details specific to your particular trade. This type of paperwork is referred to as a receipt and can be very helpful in the effortless, future organization of your many varied trades. It’s often the first point of contact for any buyer, seller, or manufacturer. Here’s how to get started with your own order sheet:
Your order sheet should always be concise and easy to read. Think of it as the “de-cluttering” of your existing sales order sheets. Begin by removing all items that are not relevant to your particular trade and then sort the items based on relevance. You should keep in mind that this list will not be the final product; you may still need to add product details to the order sheets that remain.
The next step is to use your computer and find some reputable free or paid retail order sheet samples. Many websites offer these templates for free, while others charge a fee for the service. You can also find a plethora of great looking templates for download at various retailers’ websites, like inkidesign. Just Google “ordering from retail websites” to find some great places to get your free retail template.
Once you have the templates that you want, it’s time to go through the information in the document with a fine tooth comb to extract all the pertinent information for each product category and sub-category. Then, you’ll want to copy down the product information as well as the quantity ordered, its destination address, and its customer number. In order to get the most accurate data possible, always make sure to double check your information sheets; otherwise you risk repeating mistakes. If anything goes wrong in the translation process, there are usually help sections available on the manufacturer’s website or frequently asked questions posted by customer support professionals on manufacturer’s sites.
Finally, you need to convert your order sheet sample file format into a compatible version of Microsoft Word. There are free, paid, and open source versions of Word. Most people prefer Word open source, as it allows them to customize the software according to their preferences. Open source versions have a plethora of add-ons to help make Word more functional, including PDF Reader, a theme engine, and built-in grammar and spell checkers.
If you have converted your order sheet sample into Word, then you need to convert it back to a Word document. You can do this by right-clicking on the converted file and clicking “Properties.” On the “Properties” window, click “onghairs,” then “Map,” and enter your map. Once you have done so, print the file and save it as a PDF. Your final step is to upload the PDF to the server, where you will upload it to your blog. To finish, you may want to print a cover graphic or any other type of button on your blog to finish off the conversion.
