Graphics for Print, The Web & Interactive
Because each print project has unique requirements and challenges, the fee for
each project will be negotiated, based on factors which will be clarified in the
needs assessment process. The following base fees are starting
points for standard pieces, and they are based
on the following assumptions:
The Base Fees listed below assume that...
- all assets (images, illustrations, fonts, etc.) to be included in the piece are
furnished in proper format by you, and licensing requirements and restrictions for
such assets permit nSiteful to use and modify them as needed;
- all text copy is furnished by you and requires no copyediting, proofing or
- you will have furnished nSiteful with a Rough Detailed Sketch of
the desired artwork;
- the First Proof you receive from nSiteful (as a draft-quality,
watermarked PDF) is acceptable as-is
and requires no further modifications. nSiteful would then give you a PRESS-OPTIMIZED
PDF for printing by a commercial printer;
- you will be assuming responsibility for reproducing the final print project.
Base Fees for Standard Pieces:
These fees are illustrations based on the above assumptions.
In most cases, some revisions to the First Proof will be required. Effort required to
make such revisions, based on your input and feedback, are billed at the rate of $60/hr,
rounded up to the nearest half-hour.
Factors Affecting Fee Quotation and/or Extra Charges:
The following are just some of the factors that can affect the project fee.
- amount of text copy
- special custom illustrations required
- amount of copywriting and/or copyediting required
- effort and purchase fees involved in finding, obtaining, and/or processing assets
for inclusion in the piece.
If you would like nSiteful to arrange for the reproduction of the final artwork with
a commercial printer , we will do so, and fees for reproduction will be based on your
The Rough Detailed Sketch
You are STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to furnish nSiteful with a rough
of the desired piece — this tends to keep costs down by maximizing
the chances that nSiteful will implement your vision without requiring time-consuming
and costly revisions.
What exactly is a ROUGH DETAILED SKETCH?
- "ROUGH" signifies you need NOT worry about such things as precise
layout or font sizes. Sketches which depict approximate placements and sizes should
be good enough.
- "DETAILED" signifies you should specify as much as you can. If possible, provide us with
all the text copy. Also, if, for example, we must match certain Pantone colors or font attributes, you should provide
that information as well.
of HYBRID SKETCH APPROACH here
The format for your sketch can be anything that works for you. Examples:
- Create a rough detailed sketch of your piece in MS Word, MS Publisher,
or MS PowerPoint and e-mail that to us (better approach, as it permits us to use
copy & paste to incorporate your text copy).
- Sketch out your layout ideas on paper using pencil and fax (or scan/e-mail) it
to us (a workable approach, but one which does not permit us to use copy & paste
to incorporate your text copy).
- Hybrid Approach: Send us your text copy in an editable document (e.g., MS Word)
and a pencil diagram illustrating placement and size requirements or preferences.
This approach is often the best of both worlds.

The proofs we send you will be draft-quality, watermarked PDFs. Upon your acceptance
of the final proof and after nSiteful has received your payment in full, we will
