Presto Services, Inc. offers a unique combination of services by providing in-house printing of the utility statements or notices for your convenience. We can print your billing statements and envelopes in large quantities and at low prices and store them in a controlled environment at no additional cost to you. We can also design and print any ride-along piece of your choice: newsletter, postcard, flyer, etc.
You can choose the form that best fits your needs from any of our standard size statements: 8 ½” x 11”, 6 ¼” x 8 ½” or 6 ¼” x 11”, single-sided or double-sided; or we can design a different one to your specific requirements. You can print your late notices (delinquent accounts) on the same form or you can do it on a totally different form.
The ride along pieces can be informational like a quarterly newsletter, a yearly quality report, rate adjustment cards etc. Or it can be an advertising piece and can be used for your needs or as an additional income to your business – by allowing other businesses to advertise on them for a charge.
Statement Versus Postcard
If you are still using postcards to bill your customer, consider statements. There is so much more capability in using an invoice rather than a postcard; more space to include additional information like: account history, additional services, special offers, etc.
We all know that customers expect to be serviced right away and with the least amount of hassle. They don’t want to waste time looking for an envelope to send in the payment; they don’t always remember to write the account number on the check; they can’t always make out all the poor-printed words on the card. The best way to service your customers is to give them what they want, right away.
By using invoices you provide more privacy, which is much appreciated by your customer; you offer better design of the piece and provide the customer with a reply envelope, which is pre-addressed and barcoded for faster and more accurate payment returns.
Sending an invoice in an envelope also allows you to combine more than one bill inside. For example smaller towns can combine the billing for two utilities together to save money in processing and postage.
