School Recitals

I just booked a school recital thats in a month. I need to make order forms for the parents so they could purchase the final edited DVD's from me.

Anyone with experience in this field, how do I go about doing this?

Thank you.

The last one I did I created an order form in microsoft word and it was pretty basic. I did it on half a page and just copied it on the bottom half to get 2 order forms per copy. Once I got them printed I gave them to the director of the recital (the person who hired me) and they handed them out to parents and collected them with payment then on recital day they gave them to me. had some extra forms set on a table for folks that decided to order afterwards.

Very interesting!
How did you get into that? Do you have a child involved in the activity?
If you don't mind answering, how much are you charging per DVD?
Some people take offence when it comes to money, please don't Iím just curious.

Actually the school director found me on google. I'm charging $25/DVD and there is about 70 parents attending.

I'm currently working on designing the order form.

Thats a great price. I remeber once I paid $35 for a VHS tape of a solo in Baton Twirling in the mid 90s.
Are you advertising on Google? Whatever your doing, it must be working.

I'm not sure what you have so far, But I'd include
Child's Name, Home Number, e-mail, How many copies, price and some sort of delivery method (ie. teacher's name, or address)

This is what I found googling "order forms, DVD"

I use Google AdWords to advertise.

I just finished the order form. I was using Publisher but half way through I didnt like the workflow so I decided to use Excel. It gave me the flexibility I wanted and was able to fit in two order forms into one page.
