Can I have my Logo show up on forms?

While we prefer to have questions come in on the forum so that all Morning Flight users can benefit from the solution, we do answer a fair amount of e-mail. Here is a recent exchange that may be of general interest:

Question: Can we add our logo to the estimate and other forms? Also, can we have multiple predefined messages but choose which to appear on the estimate or forms?

Answer: Your logo and multiple predefined messages can be installed, but for memos only. For estimates, you have a choice of printing the form on blank paper (in which case MFlight will display your company info at the top of the form), or on your corporate letterhead.

To include your logo on memos, simply create a GIF or BMP file 120 pixels wide and 60 pixels high, name it "MyLogo.gif" or "MyLogo.bmp", and copy it to the application directory (C:\Program Files\PrintFire\MorningFlight by default).

To create a predefined message for memos, go to File->Translate->Memo Clips and add your message there. When writing a memo, click the button next to the message area to select from a list of predefined messages.

I'll post your question about alternate messages for estimates on the Morning Flight Forum to see whether there are other users who would like to see that feature built into the program.

Hi Hal, long time no type for me. I prefer to use our corporate letterhead, I see no need to add a logo to the estimate printing. Our letterhead looks more professional than a sheet of 20lb white, especially on a $3,000 estimate.

FYI we are running at full speed here, 12-16 hour days, I have seen a lot of booklets in the last month, if you were to check your crystal ball would it show a booklet plug-in in the near future? (I'll be the lab rat if you need)

Hi Craig, that's how we produce estimates at Unitac, thanks for weighing in on this.

About the Booklet Module . . . time to come clean. That crystal ball you mention is hidden away in a closet at the moment. It will have to stay there at least until Memorial Day weekend, when my Shelby Dragonsnake gets auctioned off in Chicago.

For the last few months, I've had my hands full restoring that car, with the help of two very expert friends. Once the Dragonsnake is sold (estimates are in the $1 million + range), I'll be spending another month or so closing down and divesting myself of the Unitac Print Shop. Then, maybe two weeks to catch my breath.

If I had access to that crystal ball, I would tell you that, with everything off my plate by Fall, progress with Morning Flight will be fast and furious. The first thing to get done will be the manual. Has to be . . . we're within a whisker of 1,500 installations! Since the Gold Edition is just about ready to go beta, that will come next. This puts the Booklet Module on the third burner. Don't hold me to it, but I expect to take you up on your offer before year's end.

Thanks for the update, I hope your "little" Cobra project pays off for you!

Thanks, Craig. After 39 years of ownership, sad to see the car go. The flip side is that after June 1, I'll be able to devote all my time and resources to Morning Flight. That's exciting to look forward to and more than enough compensation for any seller's remorse.

On Saturday, May 27, the Cobra sold at auction for $1,525,000.00 - squarely in the "paying off" category! I don't recall ever seeing a check with that many numbers on it in my life, and certainly not with my name on it! Thanks, Craig, for keeping your fingers crossed. On Memorial Day, we drove back from Chicago and got off the interstate in Sandusky for gas. Didn't think your shop was open, though.

Too bad it was a holiday, I would have bought the first round (although it looks like you came back with a rather large fist full). So I can expect the booklet module by Friday... right? Now I sound like a customer. Keep up the excellent work!
