Before asking for a quote, I ask that you take a few moments to find the product or service below that you are interested in, and read through the information. Often requests are lacking in enough information for me to provide anything but questions, which leads to lost time on both my and, and yours. Taking a minute to read through will help ensure a faster and more accurate quote for you.

Design work is charged in one of three ways:
  • Hourly
  • Base fee with the potential for hourly added on
  • Flat fee

Designing a logo is charged with a base fee, which covers up to a designated number of hours of design including edit times. Anything above that allotted time is charged out at an hourly fee. Also included in the base fee will be the conversion of the final design into several different formats, which are emailed to the client.

Many design jobs such as posters, business cards, and invoice books are charged a flat fee for design and set up. These include two proofs for the client to have the opportunity to make changes and corrections. Extra proofs, have an additional fee associated with them. This is to help entice clients to create lists of changes and submit them together, as opposed to sending them one at a time, which creates a time constraint. These set-up fees are a one-time charge on any exact reorders. Changes made prior to re-printing the job will have a new but potentially smaller flat fee attached to them, depending on how extensive the changes are.

When requesting a quote for any set up or design work, it is important to include the following:

  • The exact size of the required graphic if it is a sign, poster, flyer etc. Graphics required for a poster do not have the same print requirements as that of a billboard for example.
  • Content for the work - is it a few simple graphics/logo provided by the client, or is there handwritten pages of text that need to be typed out and edited. This creates a large variance in the time it will take to set this up.
  • Is there existing branding for the company? Having this outline can actually speed up the design process.
  • If you are a new client, do you have access to a digital copy of your logo. What file type do you have? If you have a pixel image of your logo and require it enlarged onto a large sign, it will need to be converted into a format that can be enlarged, such as a vector.
  • Time frame – Do you require this to be completed in a day? A week? A month? When other customer work must be pushed aside, or extra hours worked in a day or into the night to complete the work, there are extra fees associated with this.
