Tips for Printing Receipts

If you want to make receipts that are picture-perfect to submit to your accountant or finance department, there are a few great tips we can offer you.  The absolute best way to print receipts from ExpressExpense is to use a Bluetooth Thermal Printer.  This produces real receipts on thermal receipt paper.

If you don’t have access to a thermal printer, consider printing your receipt using your inkjet or laser printer and then use scissors to cut out your receipt.  Then give your newly made receipt a crumple and a few folds to add texture to the paper.  Finally, use your mobile device to photograph the receipt and use this image of the receipt as your submission image.

Another option we recommend is making the receipt look scanned or photocopied using Doc2Scan.com. This simple website takes any image and applies effects to the image to make the receipt look like it has been photocopied, faxed or scanned.
