Add your logo to invoices or other documents

Use custom (DOCX) branding to add your logo to invoices, credit notes, quotes, statements, purchase orders, receipts and remittance advices.

Add your logo to a standard theme

  1. Create and save your logo to your computer:
    • The file type must be a JPG, GIF or PNG (non-interlaced).
    • The file size must be less than 1MB. If your file is too large, save it as a different file type, reduce the quality, or use a custom branding theme.
    • The physical size should be at least 140 pixels on the shorter side to best fit onto the printed invoice. Resize the logo yourself using a graphics program, otherwise Xero scales it (in proportion) to fit into the space allowed on the invoice. This may affect how it looks.
  2. Click Settings, then select General Settings.
  3. Under Features, click Invoice Settings.
  4. Find the branding theme you want, then click Upload Logo.

  5. Use Microsoft Word (or equivalent) to open the template you want to change from the ZIP file.
  6. Either click on the image icon to insert your logo, or insert it just as you would any other image.

    Insert your image into this (or another) table cell in the template. If you insert your image outside a table, it may print out over some of the text.

    If you're not adding a logo, just leave the cell and text - you don't need to delete them as they won't display when you generate your invoice, credit note, statement or purchase order.

  7. Find and select the image file you've saved to your computer.
  8. Click Upload.
  9. (Optional) Change the logo's position.
