    I think you have four pretty nice (and different) ideas.
    One the whole I think I like the one on the bottom left the best, but think it needs some refinement--and a little more heaviness to the...

    Pretty difficult to read. In most respects I would think legibility should be one of the prime concerns of any design piece that is supposed to highlight typography.

    Comment on What dpi in photoshop?
    PrintDriver
    Are you seriously suggesting the OP use a photoshop .eps file instead of a .psd and that the printer can resize a 1mb file to something the size of a billboard?
    That is wrong on many levels....

  • Input needed on how much to charge

    I've been asked to design fabric to be used for dog collars. I'll be using Illustrator to create the designs. Should I charge a flat fee per design and then a percentage of each collar sale? Any thoughts or suggestions?

    It depends. Most of the time for design work the client owns the designs, so you wouldn't have any right to any money from sales. You may be able to get the contract worded so that you do, but honestly I'd just come up with a price per design and be done with it.

      Hi Greys Design and welcome to GDF.

      Here is some info specifically why we don't discuss pricing here.

      We ask all new members to read the threads posted HERE and HERE. They explain how the forum runs, the rules, frequently discussed topics and our inside jokes.

      How you charge is up to you, but I personally wouldn't accept any payment based on sales.

      Your client may have a budget and a pricing plan in mind already. That would probably have more bearing than what any of us say.
      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

        Either sell them the art outright or use a Rights Managed licensing system.
        If you use RM, you have to come up with a stiffer contract but if they sell the first licensing, they get to pay you again to use it for a second run.
        Unless you are an employee. If you are, the design is theirs for your hourly wage.

        Seriously, freelancers doing illustrative art need to understand it's a bit different from regular graphic design. Find some resources in the "how to sell your art" section of whatever you use for books these days.
