Adding your logo to forms make them more professional looking and makes them instantly recognizable as yours.  And Peachtree makes it so easy that there is no good reason not to.  After all, who wouldn’t want their quote to stand out because it is more professional looking, or have every invoice, sales order, and purchase order that you send out work to reinforce brand recognition?

For this example I’ll use an invoice.  Start by selecting the invoice that you want customize.

  • Go to the Report & Forms menu.  Choose Forms, and then Invoices & Packing Slips.
  • In the lower left section, highlight the form you want to work with, then click the Customize button that is near the bottom of the right section.
  • If you need to, make room for the logo by simply dragging other objects to a new location.  If you use window envelopes, make sure your address will still show.
  • Click the Add button, then choose “Logo or Image”.  An “Open file” dialog box will open.  Browse to the folder that contains your logo file, select it, and click Open.  Peachtree can work with *.bmp, *.gif, or *.jpg files.
  • Drag the handles on the edges of the picture to resize it.  It is best to start with a picture that is close to right size.  If you enlarge it too much, it will look grainy or blurry when you print it.  If your file is a lot bigger than is needed, the form file will become quite large and will be slow to open.
  • Click on the picture and drag it to wherever you want it to print.
  • Click the save button and give the form a new name.

Remember that the next time you print an invoice, you will probably have to manually select the new format.  After that Peachtree will remember it.  These instructions were given for Peachtree version 2010, older version may vary slightly.
