Can you design a logo for my business or an invite for my event?

Yes! Designing logos and invites is what I do best. If you’re interested in working with me or just have a question, get in touch with me on my contact page, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

How much do you charge for freelance work?

I am in the process of creating a quotes page with a list of my most requested projects. Unfortunately some projects are more intense than others. Contact me with your project details and I’ll get back to you with a more detailed estimated quote.

Do you accept rush jobs?

I do! Depending on my current workload and if you’re willing to pay a rush fee for the work, I will do what it takes to get the job done. I’m here to help out in anyway possible!

What’s the best way to reach you?

Email works best and is preferred. It’s fast, efficient, and I like having a written record of our conversation.

Do you code websites?

Yes, I do code websites, especially when my clients want a particular feature that is not usually standard in website builds.

do you do small projects?

Yes! No project is too small or too large. Just because the project is small, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be designed to the highest standards..

WHAT ARE YOUR BILLING POLICIES?

For all projects I require 50% payment before starting the job and the remainder upon providing the final hi-res files. In terms of forms of payment, I am flexible and accept Checks, Paypal, Venmo or CashApp.

how long is my initial invoice/contract valid?

As of 10/01/18 all initial invoices sent for approval and deposit submission will be valid for 48 hours. All unpaid invoices will be voided and a new invoice will be issued for review and approval. Cancelled invoices may inquire additional fees.

DO YOU OFFER PACKAGE DEALS?

The short answer is no, but the long answer is yes. I don’t offer preset design packages as every clients needs are different and a one-size-fits-all solution would be very limiting. Instead, I always provide the best price possible based on your requirements. The larger the scope of work, the better rate I am able to offer.

DO YOU HANDLE PRINTING AS WELL?

I do not handle printing for design projects I produce, but I am always willing to assist you with gathering printing options for you to select from. Please keep in mind, that since I do not handle printing that the production of printing does come at an additional cost outside my design fees so please keep this in mind when reviewing your contract/invoice.

As it is always best to provide feedback ASAP, I do require you to please provide your necessary feedback within 48 hours, so that the progress of your project may stay on schedule and my design pipeline may run as smoothly as possible. When/if the response time from the client exceeds 48 hours, it is possible that the project will be postponed due to current workload.
