Hey guys, I am sure some one out there knows how to do this because blue voda has one that someone put together.

Here's what I want to accomplish- I want a button [ order Form ] that takes the customer to a printable order form, allows them to fill in the required information, which they then can print out,and mail along with their payment to me.

Can anyone tell me what I have to do to accomplish this, or assist me in the process? I sure would appreciate it.

Thanks , Billy

I haven't seen the offline form, but most are made in Microsoft word or some other program of the kind and then converted to a PDF format. Theres free tools like primopdf to convert files to a pdf

Yeah I looked at the properties and it said it was a microsoft word product, I'm not much of a computer programming person, so i am looking for a step by step process to help me complete the project, but thanks for the insight . I appreciate it.

It doesn't require being a computer programing type person to make an offline form, you just need to be able to know the a button with a B is makes text bold, I makes it italic, and U makes it underlined.

Basically you just have to do a bunch for formatting. Making words bold, to create the lines for people to write in stuff either make a line of spaces, and then underline the spaces or just use underscores.

Hi, if you make a page up using the BV form tools. You can than allow your visitor to just print it out via a print button & fill it in by hand. Or let them fill it out on line & then be able to print it & manually add a signature if wanted. Sample here (http://www.collectors-info.com/testing/form%20for%20printing.html).
