Ordering a poster, invitation, business cards or what have you— is easy! But mildly complicated. I’ve included an inquiry form to simplify things and help generate an estimate for your needs. There are a few elements that are in play when it comes to pricing a job! Please read the information below as you fill out your inquiry form. Most of the questions you’ll have should be explained here but if you find you have a question I didn’t cover, please feel free to add it to your inquiry or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a flat rate fee of $100.00 for designing and typesetting a poster and a $250 fee for a wedding invitation design. This fee is nonrefundable in the event that your job is cancelled before production.
Your prints are copy-written and intended to exist in their physical form, anything that takes them to the next level (social media, product labels, t-shirts, website advertising etc) costs money. To scan and digitize the prints, please ask first. Depending on the amount of use and distribution, it might be a limited rights situation and cost you little to nothing OR you might need to manipulate the images for other purposes, which would require a complete buyout of my rights to the image and have a larger value. This varies on a case by case basis, and is generally rare.
Each print is rolled through a press one at a time, one color at a time. Depending on how many colors your product requires and how many you order, there is a variable cost. For example, a one color poster is cheaper than a three color poster, because there’s less labor! *Minimum quantity is 100*
• 1 color poster- $2.00 per
• 2 color poster- $3.00 per
• 3 color poster- $4.00 per
• 4 color poster- $5.00 per
If you need a logo or a photograph, I need to take the digital file and create a physical block. To do that, I have to outsource it to a company that manufactures magnesium plates. The price varies based on the size of the image required. I recommend not needing a digital image on an analog poster, but I understand that sometimes it’s a necessary evil.
Carving takes more time, both to execute with my own two hands and hunched shoulders AND to develop in the first place. The image has to generate itself from my brain, then be transferred to paper and then onto a block before it’s ever carved or printed onto paper. In other words, it’s tedious, but worth it. The estimate is based on how many hours I think it will take x $50/hr. Though Camp Nevernice’s aesthetic is mostly associated with artwork I carve, I realize not every job needs a freshly carved, never-before-seen image. Sometimes you can get what you need from text alone. Creative Development includes:
• 2-3 rough poster concepts
• Full creative development (including type) for one
concept, as selected by client
• One revision (added revisions are $25 each)
• Final poster design proof for review and approval
