In this globalised world, quick and convenient access to information, as well as its movement and storage is incredibly important. What’s more, the information that we have access to is often more dense and complicated. A handshake is often not enough to signify an agreement, documentation is required in all spheres of our business and personal life, whether that is verifying the terms of employment or simply buying a SIM card for your phone. Events are also usually marked and preserved by things such as letters of invitation or intent.
Whether creator or recipient, managing these documents can seem like a daunting task, especially if you are handling a PDF document which you may need to create, read, print, sign, scan, send and then store. Rather than reinventing the wheel, Lumin has free editable pdf templates that can be used in a professional capacity, or in someone’s personal life. They can be utilised almost as is, or customised using Lumin’s advanced editing tools.
While Lumin has over 50 editable PDF forms, we are going to look at some of the ones that are commonly used and can save you time, money and sanity.
Freelance contract – Jobs for life are almost non-existent now, with people staying in jobs for short periods of time. According to the 2019 Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average length someone spent in a job was 4.15 years. Freelancers are commonly known to hop from job to job in search of more working hours, greater experience or better working conditions. An employer is most likely hiring people on a regular basis and needs a flexible form that can be customised to meet the needs of freelancers that may not be in the same city or even country. Lumin provides a freelance contract PDF form, which can be customised quickly, making signing someone up quick and easy, without neglecting any of the key terms of the agreement.
Resignation letter- If people are taking jobs with increased frequency, it is obvious that there are also more resignations. Whether you come back to a place you resign from, or have further dealings with members of the business, the advice to not “burn bridges” is important. The two-weeks notice resignation letter is a professional fillable template that will allow you to tender your resignation while still showing that you respect your employer. You never know what is around the corner, so it is best to have something to give your boss to show them you are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them.
Purchase order template – From big import/export companies to smaller home-run operations, buying and selling goods locally and internationally is a key part of the economy. If you’re starting out, having business templates ready to go can make sure your operation runs smoothly and efficiently. Lumin’s purchase order template is formatted to be clear and easy to read, so you have an expert document that can be ready to go in a matter of minutes.
Of course, business is not the only place where blank or customisable PDFs can be utilised. In our everyday life we use templates to create documents for official or seminal occasions, or as part of agreements to ensure our terms and conditions are met.
In everyday life
Lease termination- Unfortunately, being a landlord or a tenant does not mean you inherit a legal mind. So what to put in a lease termination letter? You have an idea that you want to end your contractual arrangement, but are not sure how to go about it in a clear and legally binding way. The Lease termination fillable form is clear, concise and customisable, using Lumin’s editing software.
Painting contract- While it is called the painting contract, as with all the other editable PDFs, its customisable nature means that this form can be used by any tradesman. It allows a worker to easily present terms such as scope of work, associated costs and time frames, making sure both parties are satisfied and that there are no misunderstandings down the track. Especially to the ordinary person who invites a painter or other tradesman to do some work for them, there may not be so much understanding as to why something is taking longer than expected, or what extra resources may be needed to complete a satisfactory job. A robust contract is the bedrock of any successful agreement, and allows both the worker and the recipient of the work to feel calm and at ease with the arrangement.
Graduation invitation template- Having family and close friends come to your graduation is a joyous occasion. Providing your loved ones with a graduation invitation is a nice way to show them that they mean a lot to you. The dual function of an invitation is that it also operates as a physical reminder to some of the more forgetful of your entourage. With the date and time clearly printed, they have no excuse to be there late!
Here was just a taste of some of the PDF business templates and free fillable forms that are on offer. As you can see, to have a suite of documents for any occasion is not only a time saver. These documents detail the key information, which you can edit or customise depending on the specifications of your type of work or arrangement. Combined with appropriate formatting, your documents will always look professional and be clear to you and the recipient. Lumin have done the hard work, so make it easy for yourself and take advantage of their great product!
