Hourly Rates: Most graphic design services will be billed at an hourly rate of $60.00 in quarter hour increments with a minumum billing time of one hour per assignment. Web animation (Flash) services will be billed at $72.00 per hour. Unexpectedly high additional time charges will be negotiated with contracting agency's representative as they become apparent. Cost of deliveries, courier services, disks supplied, photo purchases and various extra materials which may be used will be directly passed on to the customer and are not included in hourly rates. Additional or outsourced services such as writing or printing will be supplied at prices to be determined (TBD) as necessary. Hourly rate is subject to change.

Terms are Net 30: Invoices not paid within 30 days of original invoice date will be billed an additional 3% per month or portion thereof.

New Clients: First assignments for new clients require a 50% down payment and final payment is expected upon delivery.

Estimates: As a general rule, estimates for assignments will not be provided. Written estimates can be supplied but require a detailed, written explanation of the task(s) required and a workable time schedule. Please view the “Pricing Guidelines” for rough estimates of specific types of graphic services. (See link at left!) Every effort will be made to follow these guidelines as closely as possible, however, the prices are meant to be general guidelines and are not final quotes in any instance.
