No need for a template. You can start with your regular letterhead or blank invoice and just list your charges and total it. I don’t even do that, as a one man band. I simply send an email with my flat bid or I tell them when they ask me how much. It’s as easy as multiplying my hourly rate by how long it will take me. Don’t think you lose clout by keeping it simple. They like simple and if they are seeking multiple bids, you’ll be the first one in by keeping it simple. As they discuss bids, it’s easy to see who they’ll go with when the conversation goes “well company A says they’ll do it for x amount plus expendables and revisions. Dream Big will hand us a master and 20 DVDs for 20 grand and will have it finished in two weeks.”
they really do like simple.
