What will it cost?

Every project and every client is unique. Some have a very, very clear idea about what they want, and require very few versions and revisions. Other clients need to see a lot of font and color choices, as well as layout concepts before they settle on a final design. For this reason I do not offer “one price” print design packages. Your final cost depends entirely upon how much time you require to get to the final product. Print project cost can also vary widely depending on the type of product, quantity, and method of printing. Because of the variability it is difficult to give exact quotes for different kinds of print work, but I can give you a few examples of work I’ve done to give you a very rough idea. Your project’s final cost coulld be either higher, or lower, depending upon what your product is, how many versions and revisions you require, your quantity, your chosen product options, and method of printing. This is a good thing to keep in mind both in setting your budget, as well as during the design and revision process.


What will I get?

You will receive the print-ready PDF file. Finished printed product will be delivered after I receive it, or in the case of non-local clients, shipped to you.

How do we get started?

After discussing your specific project and needs, I will prepare a contract for you. This will outline all the specific details of our working relationship. If you choose to work with me, you will return the signature page with your signature, along with a non-refundable deposit equal to 50% of the estimated cost I give you.

After the signed contract and deposit are received, I will begin work, and will be sending you each draft for your approval and feedback, making requested revisions.

If the project goes into the next month, I will invoice you for the work done so far (minus the deposit), and will resume the work on the next month’s invoice.

At the end of the project, you will receive an invoice for the balance due on the project, minus your deposit. Once the final invoice is paid, you will be given your files in digital format, either as a link to a zip file, or on a USB drive.

What Else Can You Do?

I also provide regular graphic design work including, but not limited to, icons and other graphics for use on websites, and social media, and custom minimalist portraiture (from provided photographs). Other services I provide include logo design, website design, website management, and social media management.
