    Business Card Advice Needed!

    Generally your business card is a contact card, not a miniature marketing flyer. As such you need only the minimum you can get a way with - not how much can you put on it. The old adage keep it simple stands true. Business Name Your name Role: only if this may be important to client...

    Which of these logos works better for a tax publishing business?

    I prefer the second, I agree with Ash as it is more subtle. For the text I feel the 'claritax' is too heavy or is that the 'books' is too weak against the rest. A tip given to me some time back: Print it out a large as you can. Stick on a door a the end of a corridor or hall way and view it...

    Loyalty Card Stamps

    Yesterday I trialled 4 different stamp companies. 3 our non UK yet pretending to be, I thought this strange. One Dutch company payment system keeps reverting to Dutch language during payment process. Obviously a gremlin messing with their language plugin. I was unable to pay - customer service...

    Loyalty Card Stamps

    I've have a few requests for loyalty card stamps. I have seen a few suppliers of generic 'house' 'tick' or coffee bean' but was wondering where I could get 'bespoke' loyalty card stamps from?

    Pricing for Logo Design

    I wholly agree. I realised a long time ago that I must give value to what I do because not everyone else will. Just don't sell yourself short a small number of extra clients.

    Pricing for Logo Design

    Considering the time for designing and meeting/reviewing with clients we charge £125 minimum but may increase this if a client wants meetings in person etc. I was recently challenged over pricing of various services which made me have a re-think. One area that keeps coming up is 'cheaper' logo...

    what to charge for photos

    The more I think about the more annoyed I get. Our quotation is 'strictly for 16 items'. When first I met the client they showed me some 100+ items*. They mentioned that in the future they would like all 35 new items to be photographed. [*100+ i.e. 35 different clothing items lines in multiple...

    what to charge for photos

    As a heads up on the client though. We priced the project on half day photography plus our work. They agreed to our project price [based on 16 products as you see above] However they have delivered just over 35 products to photograph. How annoying. I will stick to project agreed rates and...

    what to charge for photos

    Interestingly enough I have had my 2 local guys come back with very different figures. a) £10 per image - minimum £150 b) £160 for a half day £250 full day both require items delivered & collected. I thought both rates very reasonable.

    what to charge for photos

    I don't do photography for clients as a rule. However local business has changed hands and needs some photos of their new products. I have got a couple of photographers that I trust to do the work. Both have asked the same question. How much? joking of course. Because they have done small jobs...
