Each quote is tailored to the specific design project needs. Pricing tends to vary based on many variables. Some of these variables are as follows: level of expertise, project specification, turnaround time requested, service and support, level of demand, current economy, and geographic location. Minimum billable time is 1 hour. Expedited service requires additional charges based on how fast the materials are needed. Normal turn-around time is 2-3 days.[/cs_text][x_custom_headline level=”h3″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false” class=”cs-ta-justify”]How do you come up with the project cost amount?[/x_custom_headline][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify” style=”font-size: 18px;color: gray;”]All price quotes are based on an estimate of time and materials.[/cs_text][x_custom_headline level=”h3″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false” class=”cs-ta-justify”]What about changes and/or revisions?[/x_custom_headline][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify” style=”font-size: 18px;color: gray;”]Client shall pay additional charges for changes and/or revisions requested which are outside the original estimate on a time and materials basis, at designer’s standard hourly rate of eighty five ($85) dollars per hour. Such charges shall be in addition to all other amounts payable under the proposal, despite any maximum budget, contract price, or final price identified therein. If client requests or instructs changes that amount of a revision in or near excess of twenty (20%) percent of the time required to produce the deliverables, and or value or scope of the services, designer shall be entitled to submit a new and separate proposal to client for written approval. Work shall not begin on the revised services until a fully signed revised proposal and, if required, any additional retainer fees are received by designer.[/cs_text][x_custom_headline level=”h3″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false” class=”cs-ta-justify”]How long does the design process take?[/x_custom_headline][cs_text class=”cs-ta-justify” style=”font-size: 18px;color: gray;”]This depends on the needs of the client.
