Graphic Design: How it works

1. I will have a few questions before I start with your project that can be handled by email or phone. After I know the basics I will get started on an estimate immediately.

2. I will email you a detailed cost analysis sheet of the project. No hidden fees, I am always up front with any work I do or will do. 3. A 50% partial payment of the total cost up front is required before work begins. I will send you an invoice that can be paid easily online.

4. CSJ Studios will start your project, sending you your design draft sheets for approval or fine tune to meet your design needs. (Three (3) draft changes are included in our total cost estimate. After those three, we will discuss any details to fine tune your project with a new estimate.)

5. Project will finish with your approval and we will email or dropbox you a folder with all your requested files.

6. You pay the remaining 50% of the bill via credit card, check or paypal and we are done. Easy and efficient! (Net 30 terms are also negotiable)

7. Projects such as business cards or logo design typically take 7-10 days. Larger scale projects will be discussed as we find out what type of brand campaign is in order. Thanks for your time and it will be great working with you.

The above price list is my way of establishing a basic price guide for the most common work I do. Many people ask “how much is it going to cost?” I will start at our base price list above for clarity, but always cater to my clients specific needs.

My standard design rate is $100/hour. I will give you a detailed job estimation sheet and factor in variables up-front before any job is started. I have a policy of 50% of our agreed payment up front before the job begins and then the remaining 50% after the job is complete and you have accepted my work.
