Design Services for Etsy Sellers & Handmade Shops

I’m a freelance graphic designer whose goal is to design and create graphic designs that help grow your brand, sell your products or services, and bring value and genuine help at a price you can afford, because I know how hard it is starting out in this business.

I understand that a one-size-fits-all package doesn’t always apply and I’m willing to tailor my services to fit your needs. If your project isn’t on the list, just let me know what extras you need and we can discuss the project and rates to create it. Depending on the service you require, I charge: a flat rate by task for some Services or $30/hour for custom services.

*** All prices are in US dollars. Prices may differ depending on how complex your design you want it.***

General Information

My design pricing is based on my standard service time to consult with clients, search for photography, work with sample designs, and creating the finished design. Most services are charged a flat rate, but occasionally some custom services or tailored services are charged $30/hour. I will let you know if I anticipate additional fees prior to invoicing.

Payment: Payment is in US dollars and through a PayPal invoice unless otherwise discussed. You do not have to have a PayPal account to pay the invoice. PayPal can process any credit cards or check. Please do not send payment until an invoice for services has been received.

100% of the design fee is due upon finalization of your design project and BEFORE the release of the final design.

Concept Designs & Rights: Design fees DO NOT include the rights to any of the sample designs. Any earlier concepts are “off the table” and no longer available to be used once you choose the final design. If you decide to continue with an earlier draft after it has been rejected, the later draft designs will be charged for at a separate fee of at least 50% of the value of the normal design fee.

Please be aware that unless you provide the images, anything I create at the concept stage of the book cover will have the watermark of the stock image provider on it. Drafts cannot be shared online (Facebook, blogs, Twitter etc) for copyright reasons. As soon as the cover has been fully paid for you have the right to share the cover wherever you like.

**Stock Photography: For legal and licensing reasons, I require all clients to provide or purchase the images that will be used in your design. If you really want me to design and pay for your images, I charge an additional $50 for each image on top of the quoted price.

Stock photography should not be purchased prior to approval of the concept design. Once we decide upon the design you want, I will ask you to purchase the images with links to buy and instructions on the correct image size. The images then need to be purchased directly by the author or publisher and emailed to me.

Design Limitations: I do not work with offer illustration based designs, designs with cartooning/caricature or designs with a clip-art focus. Designs with sensitive material, language or those that are too religious or political in nature may be declined.
