I have always typed my orders into a Word form that I created. It started from a desire to provide a more professional end product for my clients. . I can tell you that feedback from my clients is always along the lines of "Yours are the best reports we receive." Once you have a GOOD title certificate form, in my opininon, it's easier to type them than to handwrite. It's easier for the client to read and process. I've always felt like a business person first, an abstractor second, so I worked very hard to find out how my clients work, what they need, and I will do whatever I can to make THEIR job easier. That's how I define my job: to make THEIR job easier. It's the same philosophy I was taught to have toward all my bosses. It just works.
Also, it has served me well also. I now have a computerized database of every order I've ever done. When a client orders a search on a property I've done for another client, all I have to do is pull up the old title cert and basically update it. It greatly reduces my costs down the road, and increases my profit margin.
