Super Secret Special Graphics Pricing Sheet to the Trade Only

The prices here are to the trade only - that includes marketing agencies, web development firms and other companies that need graphics done for their clients. The rates are low due to the lightened load required of me since you, as the direct service provider to your client, are handling the client interaction. All I need are the specs, timeframe and payment from you. Since I am not doing the client chase, I spend less time on the project so I can give special reduced rates to you.

Although you may wonder if my graphics can be quality at these prices, I will tell you my methodology. I create vector graphics using Adobe CC Illustrator. I have an account which is up to date so I have the latest software. I do research on style and gather design ideas and work them out by sketching on paper or working up samples directly in Illustrator. I never use templates so you know you will be getting a hand-crafted product.

My design style tends to be on the simple side since I feel simpler is better when it comes to the application of a logo. I design logos to work at all sizes and look good either in color or grayscale. If a more intricate design is called for, I create sub-marks that would work where an intricate one would not.

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.
