We will require a 50% downpayment prior to beginning your site -- US funds only. For a "Custom Designed" Website, please refer to our pricing formula (below) to calculate a "rough" cost for creating your site.
Between the design & coding time involved to create a website, we have found the following formula for estimation to be fairly* accurate:
|(#) Number of photos or graphics:||__________|
|(#) Number of text paragraphs:||__________|
|(+) Add these figures together:||__________|
|(x) Multiply the total by $9.17:||__________|
(*) Please Note: If you are able to provide your materials
to us electronically, the above estimation total is likely to
be higher than the actual cost for which we'll invoice.
This dollar amount will serve as an estimation of costs. Please, keep in mind that various issues can increase, or reduce costs. For example, if images require resizing or "streamlining" for web usage or the text requires numerous formatting elements, then the cost might be higher. However, if your materials are provided electronically and do not require such streamlining or formatting, then the costs might be significantly less.
Unlike many web designers offering "package" pricing, we charge a simple hourly rate of $55/hr. If your project requires just an hour, that's all you pay ... you are never forced to buy a "package."
As with any package price, padding is always added to cover the unknown. If there are no surprises, then more is earned, literally, at the client's expense. If there is a surprise, or two, in excess of this padding, then the company will typically revert to their standard hourly rate of $100+ per hour ... this doesn't help the client and, again, is at the client's expense.
