Whatever the case, make sure to invoice your clients consistently. You're more likely to get paid on time when your client receives invoices regularly on the first day of each month, than getting them sporadically.
Across from where you put the recipient's name and contact info, include the details of your invoice. This placement makes it easy to keep track of vital information — for both you and the recipient. You'll want to include: Invoice Number, Date prepared, Payment due date.
