How exactly are you different from other form builders on the market?

Easy - no more frustrating, slow, and restrictive drop & drag interfaces

You’ll create forms faster with our unique free-text form editor, rather than using a clunky interface. Writing content and adding questions, payments, appointment calendars, and media is as easy as typing directly into your form, just like a doc™ (even use shortcuts!). Competitors dictate the flow of your form and require you to change back and forth between typed text and restricted “blocks” of content, whereas Paperform gives you the freedom to create as you like. You’re in control of fast, easy creation. We also work closely with our partners to deliver smooth embedding, sharing, and integrations.

Beautiful - raise low response rates and conversions with irresistible forms

“Forms don’t need to look good, they’re just forms”, said the folks with poor response rates.

People act on emotion, and visuals elicit emotion; it’s science. Paperform gives you a much, much finer level of control over the aesthetics of your form. Fonts, sizing, formatting, colors, images, video, hyperlinks, UI elements, page breaks, customized languages, you name it, we’ve got you covered. No need to code… and even then, we support CSS & HTML just in case.

Our competitors don’t even come close when it comes to empowering you with styling and design options. The result is our signature Landing Form™ - a landing page with forms built-in with rich content that demand attention, and make you irresistible. Even if you just want a clean, simple form without the fuss, we make it look good. That means more sales, sign-ups, and responses.

Yours - do no harm to your online reputation and strengthen your brand

Customization isn’t just about being beautiful, it’s also about standing out. Paperform supports your reputation and your brand. Your forms will look like your forms. With control over your aesthetics and embedding, custom PDFs, success pages and redirects, your brand will shine through rather than looking like a “Paperform form”. Other form creators produce forms that are distinctive to their own brand rather than fitting in seamlessly with your website and branding guidelines. This makes embedded forms a jarring experience. Your customers are confused, and at times even suspicious of entering their details. Paperform provides you with a form that seamlessly looks and feels like it's yours. Like this.
