    Make personal adjustments to the receipt template. The templates are already made for many standard purposes, but you can select, delete and replace the text with your own. Customise the text to suit your business.

    Add a graphic or logo. Use the "Insert" menu, and choose "Picture" or "Clipart." Select the file or image you want.

  5. 5

    Add a border to your receipt using the "Page Layout" menu and choosing "Page Borders." You can also insert a watermark on your receipt for a more personalised appearance. Consider creating a watermark of your company logo by setting a high transparency on the image so it is barely visible.

  6. 6

    The standard receipt template includes three per page. Print your receipts using the colour paper of your choice. You can use folder stock to cut a cover for your receipts and restickable glue to bind your receipts into a booklet. Or simply keep them separate.
