how much do you charge someone when you make a

first_imgDo not do work for free. You have a talent/skill that others don’t have, do NOT sell your self short. Do not give your original artwork to the client. If they want the artwork, you sell it to them. A photographer never gives away the negative, you have to purchase it, so should it be with the logo you create for a client. You ask them what they want, when they approve it you take it to the printer, and get the buisness cards, etc. done. Never tell your client where you get them printed, otherwise that puts you out of buisness. They don’t need to know that. As far as a first job, hey charge $50, if you’ve never done it before. But also when you do a job, have a contract, and especially have a cancellation fee, so that you get paid for what you’ve done, you always should have payment up front, and a payment schedule. Have a valid contract. I’ve made these mistakes before. I know it’s hard for new comers who want to do logos etc., don’t charge by the hour. I had a teacher who’s been a graphic artist for 20 years tell me recently – and that’s where a lot of this info comes from – that she has three prices, $250, $500, $1000. Each one comes with different perks like I think the first one has two revisions, the second 3, and the $1000 gets the most work. I hope that helps. gordie_delini Please, please don’t do the work for free, don’t even do it for merchandise or apparel. Do it for a fee of some sorts. If you do it completely pro bono, clients will think they can get any work for free, which is not the case (if it’s family, then I believe it can slide).With a lot of these up and coming “logo-sites” charging $50 -$100 for logos, it waters down the overall design job and work suffers as a whole, since everyone is trying to put out the cheapest price. Tell the client straight up what the rate is for the artwork and rights to the artwork you create. Don’t be discouraged about charging a higher fee (higher than those logo.com sites), just let them know through the work it will be 1st rate, and not a mass produced piece of garbage.

Do you charge by the hour, or just for the whole amount of time it takes you to make the logo? I’m just curious and want to see what is a good price range if I ever need a logo or decide to make a logo for someone.

The brand is a not-for-profit company that exists solely on effort and donations. Anyway, the logo turned out pretty good and I was going to “donate” it because of the nature of the business.
