I never have to reinvent the wheel. And as a professional accountant, you can imagine how many different "wheels" I use every day! Profit & Loss statements, Balance Sheets, Cash Flow Forecasts, Time Sheets, Break_Even Analyses, Margin Calculations, Business Plans, etc, etc. When using your own prior work as a financial template, you get another benefit _ you are so familiar with the template that it takes you no time to figure out how to use it. And each time you refine it just a little bit more. So pretty soon your templates run like a Swiss watch! All the bugs have been worked out, you have tested it with many different clients and many different business scenarios and you know you have something you can depend on. Financial Templates as Tools _ For someone who is not a finance professional, financial templates serve a slightly different purpose. They still save time, of course, but they also provide a tool that person would have to pay someone else to develop.
When you need printed instructions _ Key card envelopes can be used to store ID cards, customer loyalty cards, and pass cards of all kinds. Encouraging the cardholder to store the card in an envelope means they can keep instructions for using the card always on hand. It may be difficult to print a large amount of copy on a card, but it is easy to print on both sides of the envelope. Besides printing room numbers and building numbers for resort key cards, you could print instructions for using an employee access card, blanks for writing personal information so a card can be returned to its owner, or instructions for how to redeem a gift card.
