Cost of Graphic Design

We charge $75/hour for design time, but initial consultations are always free of charge! While the amount of design time for any specific job may vary, here are some general time estimates based on display size/type:

  • Banner Stands & Table Top Displays: 2-4 Hours
  • 10 x 10 Displays: 4-6 Hours
  • 10 x 20 Displays: 6-8 Hours
  • 20 x 20 Displays: 8-10 Hours

Keep in mind these numbers can vary based on your preparation and what you're looking for. Here are some of the variables that affect design time:

  • Are you looking for a simple design or something more complex?
  • Do you need the designer to help search for stock images?
  • Do you have your logo available in a vector format?
  • Do you have an idea of what you're looking for or do you want the designer to come up with several directions for you to choose from? Multiple rounds of revisions may require additional design time while fewer revisions will save time.

How to Prepare for a Design Project

The best way to prepare for an upcoming design job is to start by gathering all of the content you intend to use on your display. Logos or icons should be in a vector format (AI or EPS file type), which will allow them to be scaled indefinitely with no loss of quality. Photos should be high resolution raster images. High quality JPGs are ideal, but TIFs or PSD files are also fine. PNG files may also work but often times those are used for web applications and will be too small for large format printing.

Also try to determine what text you want on your display. Keep in mind, LESS IS MORE! A tagline and URL is often all you need, but we understand if you want to throw a bulleted list on there. The rule of thumb with graphics is typically you only have 3 seconds to capture the viewers' attention and get your message across, so three paragraphs of text will likely go unread.

It's also important to determine factors such as your target audience, call to action, and existing branding. If your company has a style guide make sure to send that over as well!
