A “FLAT CAT” RATE
For all graphic design and website design requests, I charge a flat rate of $40 per hour. Why? Because I believe it’s the most honest way to do business. I could not, in good conscience, charge someone $500 for a logo design that took me 1-2 hours to complete. It only seems fair to charge my clients only for the time I spend on their projects, so I keep track of hours (rounded to the nearest 15 minutes) for all initial drafts and revisions. You will only be charged for the time spent on your project—simple as that.
To give you an idea of how many hours a typical project will take, here’s a little breakdown for you:
- Logo Design: 2-3 hours
- Websites (averages)
- WordPress Customized Site: 4-6 hours
- Fully Custom “Brochure” Site: 6-10 hours
- Fully Custom Dynamic/Interactive Site: 15-25 hours
- Graphic Illustrations: 1-3 hours
- Custom Fonts: 2-3 hours
- GIF Animations: 1-2 hours
For website clients, I offer basic hosting at $35/month, which includes 1 hour of maintenance per month. Please note that website design clients are welcome to host their sites elsewhere if they wish—there’s no obligation to host with us.
- $35/month includes:
- secure website hosting
- up to 10 email addresses
- Annual domain name renewals for 1 domain name (after initial $15 registration)
- 1 hour web maintenance per month
