Why choose our retainer program?

How does it work?

A retainer fee is like a monthly design fee. It is paid upfront each month before work is ordered.  

Based on the retainer package you select, we will dedicate the specified amount of hours each month and plan our workload accordingly. You have peace of mind knowing that you will receive priority, and  pre-established amount of work each month, without the worry if other client projects are ahead of you!

Graphic Design Retainer Guidelines:

  • 3 month minimum commitment. At the end of 3 months, we will re-evalaute the program 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. Overage in hours each week will be billed at the standard hourly rate of $50 per hour.

  • 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.

  • You will get an invoice on the first day of each month. Invoice will include the monthly retainer rate for that month and any additional charges from previous month.
