i) Including a serial number on all forms.
  • The cost of including a serial number on all forms is very low
  • It adds problems in storage and usage as it is expected that, where possible, lower serial numbers should be used first
  • It provides security for items such as invoices, cheques, etc


ii) Printing forms on standard in-house hardware such as laser printers or using an external printer to supply bulk copies.
  • It is economic to print relatively small numbers of simple forms in house
  • Large numbers of more complex, multi-sheet forms are better produced externally on specialist facilities


iii) Adding solid lines to forms.
  • Horizontal lines can be used to separate sections of the form, vertical lines to separate columns
  • No more than two different thicknesses of line should be used


iv) The typefaces to use.
  • The number of typefaces should be kept to a minimum
  • A mixture of capitals and lowercase is easiest to read
  • Using all capitals should be reserved for headings for grouped items
