An invoice doesn’t have to be ordinary. On the contrary, an invoice can have a beautiful design. It can be brought to life by simply adding color, illustrations, borders, patterns, or changing its standard outline altogether. This article will show you how experimenting with colors, using flat graphics, using monochrome, using hand-drawn illustrations, paying close attention to details, using new fonts and clean, minimalist designs will make invoices infinitely more beautiful and interesting than a plain white sheet of paper with black writing on it.
