HIRE AN A'DEAS DESIGNER
What is the cost of this service? A number of options are available and the fee is determined by the services required.
Whether you need to start from scratch or simply want to make changes to an existing file, our Design Department can assist you. You provide the basics (text and graphics), and we do the rest! You may send your own graphics to include with the instructions or you may choose to purchase images through Fotolia or both. You will receive a proof, and if necessary, may make changes. When you are satisfied, you approve the proof and we move forward to production.
What is Fotolia? It is an online source for millions of Royalty Free stock photos. It can be easily searched to find just the right image to convey your message. The currency for purchasing images are credits normally bought through the website. The "credit-cost" for each image varies according to the particular image and the size.
At A'Deas we have made using Fotolia easy and cost effective for you. Just follow any link to the Fotolia site to browse the images and make your choices. Then simply include each image # with your instructions to the designer and we will download the image in the proper size to use in your design. Purchasing your images through us can save you money in two ways: 1) Our designer will know exactly what size image to download for your project and 2) our cost to you for images is only $1 per credit. On your own, the same image will most likely cost you up to 40% more. Any images used in your design will be available in your portfolio for you to use again in another design but due to restrictions, we are unable to give you the actual image file. If you want the actual image file, we suggest you procure the image yourself and supply it to us.
If you don't have the time or inclination to browse for images yourself, we can do that for you too! Our fee for a designer to search for specific art for up to two (2) similar images is $30. This does not include the image credits required to purchase the image.
Here are some sample design pricing options and the services they include: (Fotolia images may also be specified for use but will incur an additional cost per the information above)
