With gift certificates, it's easy to prepare and sell your goods or services ahead of time. Customers can purchase a gift certificate and give it to a friend, family member or colleague, so they can redeem the purchased products or services on their schedule. Tally up each customer's total purchase using guest checks and consider other business forms, tax forms and recordkeeping tools to meet any small or large business need.
Whether you prefer to handwrite gift certificates or print them using a compatible inkjet or laser printer, there are gift certificates available in either form. Use a gift certificate template to customize each gift certificate with images and text that speak to your business and specific wares. Look for certificates that are consecutively numbered and feature watermarks, microprinting and security tints to avoid duplication and ensure authenticity.
It's easy to keep track of each gift certificate with two-part designs that let you give the top copy to customers and keep the second copy underneath for your own personal records. Gift certificates with attached stubs allow you to monitor when gift certificates are issued, the amount of each certificate and to whom and when it was addressed.
Gift certificates that come paired with coordinating envelopes are perfect for making beautiful presentations that reflect well on your business. Choose a gift certificate that comes with a ""Gift Certificates Available"" sign for propping up on a check-out counter.
