Graphic Design Pricing

There are a multitude of people out there who are really good at design but have a not so great relationship with print companies. When you want your project done right and you turn your print files from the designer over to get printed, you don’t want to get hit with a list of things that need to be changed for your project to print correctly. Worst of all, you don’t want to see inflated prices because the printer knows your designer does sloppy prep work and they have to put in extra time to fix problems. The designer on our team works at a print shop, so you don’t have to worry about the problems noted above. Your print files will be done correctly, and if not, they will be fixed ASAP—no long waits to fix the thing you already paid for.
