Winter Special 2019

Until December 31, 2019 we are offering a lower rate for PDF form design services. Instead of $80 per hour, you can have fillable fields added to your flat PDF form for only $20 per page with up to 40 fields.

Why Fillable PDF Forms?

A PDF form with fields that your clients can type into is much easier to read than one they fill out by hand. Plus, it is much more convenient and less frustrating for the client. Imagine a form packet with multiple pages that automatically fills the repeated / redundant information like name, address, date. Stop frustrating your clients and give them a delightful experience with a fillable PDF form that they can fill on the computer then print and bring in, or even email back to you with one click! A simple one page form with 20 text fields takes me about 15 minutes to add the fields. At my standard rate of $80 per hour, that is only $20. Of course, more complex forms take longer (more fields, calculations, check boxes, buttons). If you have a form packet of 10 or more pages for me to enable with form fields, I will give you a 20% discount off the project through April 15 2019 (tax day). Just mention this post when you contact me via [email protected].

Using PDF Forms on a Tablet

A good topic was raised today by a client about using PDF forms on tablets. Our advice here at Electronic Document Design is to make sure all your tablets have the latest version of Adobe’s Reader software installed, and not a generic PDF viewer software. This will ensure that the form fields work properly and that data can be saved into the form (with Reader Extensions enabled). It is also a good idea to run a field test on the tablets with just one form for at least a couple of weeks to be sure this solution will work for you before investing in conversion of all your business forms to fillable PDF forms.  Most times, all goes well, but some applications, like forms that require insertion of new pages or insertion of images, may not work as you expect. That is because more complex actions require Javascript, which does not work on most tablets and other mobile devices.
