I provide professional consulting services to help small businesses grow. This can range from setting up QuickBooks accounting software to bookkeeping to advice on marketing and business plans.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
I focus on Gen Y entrepreneurs who are younger (<35) and have a distinct point of view. They are generally more risk taking and creative types. The "background" I need for my forms will be used on all my invoices, estimates, etc that I send to these clients. I want to look "hip" but still very professional.
See attached file for template info. Note that you should use these specs, and not the print guidelines for stationery.
Re: style...I am looking for warm jewel tone colors like gold/copper, sapphire, ruby, emerald. I would like the pattern to be fairly clean on the right side of the page since that is where my data shows up. However you can embellish the left side, or the footer area! I need it in a DPI that works for both Print and Email. The body part of the page should not have a dark colored screen b/c I am worried about visibility of the data. But would love to see some creative border work! I like abstract images vs. pictures (e.g. no pictures of computers or charts). Thanks!
