General Notes

Prices for my services and products are subject to change without prior notification. All prices are US dollars.

PayPal is preferred, however, we also accept credit card and wire transfer. Please DO NOT send checks.
Invoices will be sent through Freshbooks, an online accounting and invoice software I use.

A 50% deposit is due prior to the start of any work. The final payment will be due upon project completion and approval but before final files are and for websites complete control is handed over from me to you.
Payment plans may be worked out under special circumstances, but a partial deposit must be made before work will start.

If the deposit is not received within seven days of placing the order, the order will be canceled.

An additional Expedition Fee will be charged for last-minute projects, or simply for an expedited turnaround time. Expedition fees will be 25% of the original design fee.

The expedited lead time for covers and promotional materials is 1-3 days.

Cover Art Questionnaire

The questionnaire will help me understand what your book is about and how you imagine your cover. Please keep in mind that it will be difficult to depict an actual scene out of your book. I work with stock images, so there are limits. On the other hand, the most successful covers are of a more simpler nature and clean in appearance with title and author name in a font and size that is still readable at a smaller size.

If you don’t have a detailed vision of your cover, don’t worry. The information you’ll provide, will still give me a feel of what the cover should look like. Together we will create a cover that you love and can be proud to call yours.

Website Design

You receive a price quote based on the scope and complexity of the web design project and the estimate of the time it will take me to complete it. I come up with this estimate from the information I have collected from you about the project, provided by questionnaires and other forms of communication. This is an initial price quote. If, after the initial payment has been made and work started, you decide to change the scope of the project, add any extra services or you misrepresented your needs, you will be billed (usually upon project completion) for any extra time incurred over the initial estimate.

Usual price range for projects: $500 – $4,000

Payment for Other Services

If not otherwise noted, the services (e.g. Website Maintenance) are billed at $40/hr, in 15-minute increments.

All emergency work as for the restoration and repair of malware infected or hacked websites necessary is considered a project with an expedited turnaround time. Therefore the Expedition Fee will be applied.

Printer Recommendations

Please note pricing for print promo items does not include printing and shipping. You select a printer of your choice and I design your items according to their specifications.

Here’s a list of printers I can recommend because I either used them myself or my clients were more as happy with them:

Moo

Business Card, Mini Cards, Notecards, Giftcards, Greeting Cards, Letterheads, Stickers and Flyers.
The best is their Printfinity. With MOO you can print a different design on every Business Card, Postcard, Flyer or Sticker in a pack. It’s like a portfolio bookshelf in your pocket.
https://www.moo.com
Also available in the UK: https://www.moo.com/uk/

GotPrint

If you need hundreds, if not thousands of bookmarks, cards or flyers, when your best bet will be http://www.gotprint.com.

Vista Print

An all-time favorite, especially as shipping costs can be high for Canadians or when you live Down Under with US printers. They also offer vinyl banners and banner stands. Great for signings or cons.
