Other items – $25 each, such as envelope, labels, stamps, etc.
Stationery design includes print-ready graphics for you to take to your printer. If you have your own printer, I will need to know who it is and a link to their website or a phone number. I will need to find out their specific printing file requirements. Some printers still require .TIFF files and CMYK, others are fine with .PNG using RGB colors. These design fees do not include the actual printed products.
To start your stationery project, answer the questions on the Identity Design Project Form and indicate which package you require, or list out the individual items you need.

Why we don’t like ballparks

 

We get it – you’re starting a project and you have a budget.  You need to get the cost so you can move on with your planning.

Unfortunately, unless we have all of your requirements and the details of your website project, we cannot give a good estimate. An estimate that becomes wildly different once we understand all of your requirements will pose problems for your finances later and could bring your project to a halt.

That’s why we don’t do ballpark estimates. We prefer to give you the most accurate estimate to save you issues down the road.

We do have a minimum fee for setting up a custom site and it depends on if you have a design or theme already.

For a retail client such as a small business who needs a website for themselves, we charge a minimum of $4000 to design and code and set up your WordPress site on your own hosting account. This will give you a world-class website that you will have complete control over. If you have purchased a theme already, our rate may be lower. Just know that working with another developer’s theme can be just as time-consuming as creating our own. They all have their learning curves.

For wholesale clients, such as marketers or advertising agencies who need a site done for a client, we can provide a starting fee of $2000 to set up a basic site and code in your design. If you need design work, fill out the quote form and we will get a quotation back to you.

To fully assess your project and provide you with the most accurate quote possible, we will need to get more information from you, so please send us a quotation form and we will get right on it.
