Hi, I'm looking to create both an immation of a an old thermal transfer store receipt that will be emailed and even tually printed out on regular inkjet printer paper. Its not ment to look like the real receipts you get at Walmart or anything. I just can't afforted a calculator that prints with text just for occasional use. Plus, it might be nice to put my simple logo in it. A few of my repeat customers are senior citizens who like the old fashioned look of a receipt and it goes along with the theme of my items.
Also, I need to know the best way to make simple invoices. I sell crafts & supplies at fairs and sometimes online. It just need the basics: the item with description & if it has a model #, my name & contact info plus the customer's contact, shipping & payment info, shipping cost & if I have to charge tax, ect. I would also like to be able to put in a JPEG logo image.
I've been using open office on my Windows PC for all of my office needs (which weren't more than the occazional letter) up until I started this side biz. However, it has changed and I find many gliches in this latest version just when I just want to rearrange the text, highlight it, and fix my horrible spelling. It seems to have a mind of its own and does what it wants, so it takes me twice as long to do things.
I've tried to create invoices in Google Doc because I use my Android phone or tablet when I'm not at home, but it hasn't workedbout well for me. I don't currently have a modern copy of MS Office and I never really learned how to use it, but I'm willing to buy 1 if that will be the eaziest to learn and I'm assuming it would work the same way on Android.
Plus, what would be the best teaching method to learn the Office Suite you recommend? I read MS Office for Idiots (but it didnt have many pics and all of them were in black & whie, which I found hard to learn from) years ago but that didn't help much so I guess I'm pretty pathetic. Lol
I think if I found the right set of Youtube videos or I just got a free subscription to Lydia.com from my local library, would help me a lot in the long run to learn all aspects of the software. However, I have to make up a set of receipts and invoices in the next couple of days, so any program that I can create on Windows 7 and at least attach (&hopefully preview 1st) to an email on my Android 6 phone would be great! Time is urgent, so I really appreciate any help. Thanks!

OpenOffice is OK but they said at one time that they would no longer support it as their donations were not keeping up with their costs to update. Might have changed by now but I would recommend LibreOffice . Seems to be a much better free office suits to me.
