  • How much should I charge for a brochure?

    I designed a brochure for a client and he loved it. It's a threefold brochure. How much should I charge?

    Any help would be great.

    we are not able to discuss this here.

    Your best bet would be to come up with your hourly rate and multiply the number hours you worked times the hourly rate.

    However, you should estimate the price for the client before beginning the project and getting a signed contract.

    there are some pricing resources and sample contract links here:

      I don't think it's fair to charge admission to see you're brochure. I mean, if you want to share it with the world just hold it up and people will bask in your design glory... but don't charge man.

      I'm just an ass....

        Yeah, but see, we didn't do it that way. In fact, I designed a letterhead and then he asked if I would do a brochure. Dang, well, I'll just do what you said. It'll be fair.

        Thank you, my friends.

            How many hours did you work on it and how much do you charge an hour? That about sums it up.

              This is how I do it. But you should have worked this out before doing it, for large design jobs I use a contract this way the cost is up front from the very beginning and you have covered your arse.

                Right an amount on a napkin and slide it across the table to your client, he will right down a counter offer.

                Repeat.

                  Or just make him an offer he don't refuse. But make sure you take Lou Cabrazzi with you.

                        Get the GAG Ethical Pricing Handbook! It has some suggestions for pricing based on the publication's circulation.

                          I keep detailed track of everything that I do....what was done...how long it took....photography...edititng...production...ever ything.

                          Then I calculate any exspense...add that and x15.00 hourly rate.

                          It's funny when you tell people that it might get spendy and that they would really benifit from a good long sit down to talk about what end result they want. I find beer loosens them up..but it can make them crazy too!
                          Most people I've delt with think that I have a magic wand and I just use fairy dust to get the rest done. Do they not understand...it a long hard day on your butt in front a screen?

                          Anybody got a magic wand for sale?
