Every form is intended to serve some purpose. Your first step is to identify the purpose i.e. what you will be using the form for. Decide whether it will be used for official or personal use whether you need to embed logos in it whether the printable form will need to filter any data from the company software etc. Once you have identified the function the printable form is expected to perform you can easily decide which software or online program you need to create the form.
You should create a checklist of everything you need in your application form so a template can be found to match your needs. This will help you to find a form that will suit your needs. If you do not mind paying for a template for your application form you can actually pay to have one created expressly for you that will match everything on your list and create the perfect form you need.
