If you just need an application to print a few invoices each week, then MS Word has several Templates that will serve the purpose. And OpenOffice.org (an open-source, free office suite) has one that you can link to its spreadsheet. If you need to print many invoices and have money in the expence budget, there are several small business applications that you can purchase; other members may be able to recommend the best of these.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

I kow freeware is tempting for everything, but something should be left to the professionals. I used a speadsheet/invoice I made in MS Works 4.5. I ran my buniess for 6 years with it. I moved over to Quicken QuickBooks Pro and it was the differents of night and day. If for no other reason than to help keep your taxes straight.
If you have a CPA I would recommend talking to him about what box software would benifit you. Now most CPA are trained on one software or another. Trust me it is worth every penny.
