Artist Accounting 101: Easy Invoices

Mar 10, 2011

We've mentioned on past blog postings how individual artists often need to operate as small business entrepreneurs.  If you're just getting started with bookkeeping, free and easy-to-use resources are crucial because A) if we wanted to be accounts, we would have been accounts, and B) we're not getting paid much so free is very good.

Sounds like the creators of Billable understand this situation.  Their new online invoice creator couldn't be any easier to us.  Need to invoice someone for arts or freelance work?  It's even easier than the pre-baked templates found in Word or Excel.  Simply go to the website, fill out the form, and either print or save as a PDF.  From their website:

We didn't like invoicing and couldn't find anyone who did. So we created Billable...
Billable: Billing Made Simple. Period.
Billable is currently in beta and we've got a lot of plans for the future. We're doing this for the creators, for the people who are trying to make something great, but have to pay for noodles in the meantime.
Give it a try at, then get back to making more art!
