The cost of your job depends on a number of variables. For design jobs, design estimates are based on the following:
- Type of job (a postcard vs. a 16-page brochure, for example)
- The rounds of edits needed once the job is in the proofing stage (include three rounds of proofs with a final proof for approval to print; any more or less rounds than three will affect your estimate accordingly)
- The need to commission a photoshoot
- The need to hire a freelance proofreader
In order to get started, consider whether you have a budget that’s been set aside for this job; check to see whether this, or a similar job, was produced for your department the previous year. If so, you may look at that cost as a ballpark of this year’s estimate. If you’re still unsure, set up a meeting with our team so that we’re better able to gauge your needs and provide an estimate.
Should we find we’re unable to take on your job due to our workload or scope of the job, we work with a vetted group of freelancers who will be available to you. In this case, the cost of the job will be discussed with the freelancer and must be approved by you, the client, before any work begins.
