Why pay month to month for a designer retainer, instead of hourly or per project?

A design retainer package is perfect for businesses who need design services on a monthly basis, but don’t want the overhead of hiring a full time designer. We become your personal designer for whenever you need us. You’re full office will have access to us for job submissions. It’s like we’re working in the office room right next to your team!

 

Here’s another bonus! Many of our service costs are discounted, saving you hundreds of dollars in design cost. Another benefit is that design retainer client job submissions are always sent to the front of the line to be completed before other design requests. If you’re loyal to us, we’re loyal right back! 

Think of your retainer fee as our monthly sallery, without all the overhead. It is paid up front at the begining of each month before any design work is ordered. Essentially, you are paying for time versus a specific service. This allows you to benefit from avoiding those fluctuating designer fees, and supplies you with a cost savings!

 

Design retainers include graphic design, web design updates, social media design updates, video editing, and photography needs.

 

Based on the retainer package you select, I will block out my schedule with the appropriate amount of hours each month and plan my workload accordingly. You have peace of mind knowing that you will receive a pre-established amount of work each month, without having to worry about what my current design workload looks like, and if we have time for you... or not. We will always have time for your design requests!

Your main contact will always be the SAME person, each and every time. We can even help you create an email such as designrequests@yourdomain.com to send to all your employees so that you are white labeling our services within your company, at no extra cost...

Monthly designer retainers are defined by the amount of hours of work we estimate each month you'll use. We are basically charging an hourly fee for all design requests, saving you on cost of flat fee services.

 

Because sometimes months may spend more or less time, your monthly designer retainer may change/increase if you drastically over your set hours. We only bill for those extra hours if its quite drastic, and usually don't worry about an extra hour or two. This is because some months you may use less than your defined retainer. We find that these months typically equal out month to month and don't see a reason to edit your invoice often. 

Never! Even on those rushed jobs, we wont charge you any extra designer fees...

Each retainer package has a 3 month minimum commitment. At the end of 3 months, we will re-evaluate the retainer contract to ensure the number of hours are fitting your business needs. After that, we can move to 6, 9, or 12 month commitments.

Each retainer includes a set number of hours per week. If you acquire any overage in hours due to SIGNIFICANT overage in hours (3 or more hours than normal) during the month, those extra hours will be billed at the standard retainer hourly rate.

Unused hours expire at the end of each week. This is to ensure that I can allocate time for your projects each week and plan my workload accordingly.

At the beginning of each month, you will receive your invoice, payable upon receipt via check, or credit card. Invoices will include your monthly retainer rate, and any additional charges from previous month where you may have gone over.

Note that each package contains the same design services, no matter the number of hours you set your contract up for each month.

  • Print Materials – sales sheets, direct mailers, brochures, event programs, signage.
  • Digital Materials – email templates, social media graphics, blog banners, and other web graphics.
  • Ad Design – print, social, and web ads.
  • Social Media– Changing the header design, profile images, or services images for your social media accounts.

 

*Services do NOT include additional costs like stock photography & fonts that would need purchased. Services do NOT include logo design or web design.
