Creative Services – Pricing

Graphic Design

For artist branding, packaging and other visual identity needs, our current Graphic Design rate is $40/hour. This rate is standard for all graphic design services. Contact us to discuss your requirements or to schedule a consultation with our designer. We will provide you with a written estimate prior to starting your design.

$40/hour doesn’t sound like a lot for professional design services…

While other agencies and freelancers charge a lot more for graphic design, we want to offer affordable design services to everyone. We want to help you make your images look their best. If we can improve the look of your brand, we increase the perceived value of your work.

Photo Design Techniques

Photo Mosaic – $100 (Free when ordered as a 20″x30″ or larger canvas print)

With this technique, we use hundreds of your photos as tiles and arrange them with software to create one image. We’ve found that this works best when the one main image is a close crop of a face. Text and landscapes also have great results. More photos will help make a better final image.

Included with the price:

• Scaling/cropping/optimizing your photos for use in the mosaic
• Colour correcting, leveling and touchups to ensure individual tile images as well as the main image look great
• Up to 2 digital proofs showing the entire image as well as zoomed-in detail of  a selection of tile images
• High resolution JPEG render of the final mosaic
• Optimize the mosaic for printing to canvas, or any other paper

Click here and select “Creative Services” from the drop-down menu. Reserve your print through our online ordering system. Because of the large quantity of images required for a photo mosaic, we recommend sending us a disc or flash drive containing all your images.

Cartoon Illustrations – from $150

Have your photos redrawn and converted to a line art cartoon style drawing. With your direction, we remove and change backgrounds or other unwanted elements from your picture. You’ll work with our artists to determine the style you are looking for.

Included with the price:

• Initial consultation with the artist to determine the style and overall direction for the piece
• Up to 2 digital proofs showing the entire illustration as well as zoomed-in detail section of the illustration
• Digitally hand-drawn high-resolution illustration based on your photo and creative direction
• Optimize the illustration for printing to canvas, or any other substrate
• Low resolution JPGS suitable for emailing and social networking sites.

Click here to go to our store and select “Digital Paintings” from the drop-down menu. Then reserve your print through our online ordering system (order as a digital painting). We will contact you to discuss your creative vision for your digital illustration.

Custom Canvas Borders – FREE

When ordering your canvas, select “SURPRISE ME” when choosing your Choice of Styles. Contact us or write in the remarks any creative direction you want to us to take into consideration. Let us know about where the print is going, what other decor will be near the print, what colour of paint or wallpaper is in the room, etc.

Of course, we’ll always show you a proof of what your canvas will look like prior to printing.
