Have a question? Please feel free to contact us.
A typical project will look like this:
- Initial Contact
- Free No Obligation Consultation: either via phone, virtually, or in person in Delaware. For smaller projects, we can communicate via email.
- Commitment & Agreement
- Client Provided Content: Client will provide us with all content—photos, wording, etc. (We offer copywriting services for an additional fee). We encourage you to save original photo files and make sure they are the best quality you have. *This is the step where we require a deposit for certain projects.
- Design Proofs: We will upload our proofs online and/or attach them in an email. You can use Adobe Acrobat Pro to review and make comments or use our online proofing to make comments and suggest changes.
- Finalize Design: After a few rounds of editing, we will finalize the design and you will approve for print. While we have a professional proofreader and editor handy, it is the client’s responsibility to proofread all of their documents carefully before print. (We do offer proofreading services by a professional proofreader for an additional fee).
- Final Payment
- Order & Receive Products
All design costs vary per project. We do not charge an hourly fee, however, we will estimate the overall project based on an hourly rate or the per page rate. We will give you an initial estimate after our consultation.
Typically, each project starts at a base price and range. All costs are fully disclosed, and adheared to, prior to beginning each project. The only way our price will go over the initial estimate is when additional services are requested. All printing prices for larger projects are also estimated, however, there are typically set prices for standard projects like brochures and postcards, etc.
Our minimum design fee is $100 for all projects and our hourly rate is $45/hr. If we are designing multiple printed materials with slight variations, we offer significant discounts on each additional variation (example would be business cards).
We require the design fee for all booklet and projects over $1000 after the initial proof has been sent. All projects require full payment before printing unless otherwise agreed upon.*
* If there is a rush project for an event, please keep in mind we cannot complete until full payment is made. We do accept credit cards for a 3% processing fee. Our minimum design fee is $100 for all projects and our hourly rate is $45/hr. If we are designing multiple printed materials with slight variations, we offer significant discounts on each additional variation (example would be business cards).
We encourage you to give us at least a two months for large projects such as multiple page catalogs and booklets, but you can start at any time. For smaller projects, we recommend 3-4 weeks for design and printing.
Print turnaround time varies per product but booklets can come in as soon as 5-7 business days, sometimes sooner.
We do offer rush print turnaround times for products like flyers, postcards, and business cards as soon as 3 business days. Any rush projects may incur an additional fee.
