    Presto, it is forum policy not to discuss pricing. Pricing can vary depending on where you are located and the experience of the person you ask. One way to pay what you consider is a fair price is to...

    In addition to pricing discussions being against the forum rules, there's no way to answer that. Pricing varies from designer to designer and region to region. We have a classified section where you can...

    No problem, I just wanted to clear the water as for some reason most people think that any image created on a computer is graphic design. Graphic design is deliberately communicating a universal message...

    Good point by you! I will try myself. How much would it cost to have someone designs it for me if I can't pull it off myself? Ball park ... Or is there a place I can get bids to do the design?

  • Who says books are becoming obsolete...?

    With Amazon slowly taking over the publishing world and bookstores closing left and right, things can sometimes seem a little grim for the brick and mortar booksellers of the world. After all, why would anyone leave the comfort of their couch to buy a book when with just a click of a button, they could have it delivered to their door? Well, here’s why:

      Awesome find! I love bookstores. I'd love to open a beautiful or cozy little bookstore where people can just hang out. Not really sure how to make it fiscally viable, though. I love our Tattered Cover here in Denver.

        Holy wow! I'd get ready to write "oh ______ was my favorite," but then I'd scroll down and love the next one just as much!

        Thanks for sharing!

          I like the idea of books being available digitally now ... but nothing can replace the array of lovely books I have on my shelf. That will always be eye catching to me

            Wow, awesome!

            My wife and I found a really cool old bookstore when we were on vacation last year. We bought some awesome old books, a 100+ year old map and 100+ year old lithograph for very reasonable prices.

            We definitely plan on going back again.

              For me, digital books are great because I don't have to pay up to many times the price of book for postage from the US. I've paid $35 postage for a $1 book. I hardly go to bookstores anymore because I'm more likely to find a book online than at the library or at a store. But I do like books and I love this collection of bookstores.
