Document and graphic design is an investment in your business. Blue Sun’s core value of Honesty & Integrity means pricing is upfront and transparent.

Project fees

HOURLY: NEW RATES AS OF JULY 1, 2022 Blue Sun invoices most services, including consultation, design, writing, and editing, at a rate of $60 per hour. Minimum billing is 30 minutes ($30), with minimum billing increments of 15 minutes after that.

PROJECT-BASED: There are some circumstances, such as logos, where I determine a flat rate for the entire project, and that would be clearly communicated to you at the start of work.

CONTRACTED: Agreeing to a 3-month minimum contract secures reduced pricing and priority turnaround. See details below.

Initial consultations are always complimentary.

If you have a preference for how your project is billed, we can discuss that prior to beginning work, and the contract will be written to reflect our agreement.

DOWN PAYMENT: A 50% down payment is required before any work will begin. Blue Sun will invoice you for the remaining balance upon completion of the project and the file or product has been delivered. Final payment is due within 15 days of invoice.

RUSH FEE: Blue Sun reserves the right to charge a Rush Fee of $25 or 20% of total project fee (whichever is more) on any project that has a timeline of a week or less.
