design and print of mail order catalogue

Hi,

Can anyone help me? I am looking for quotes for a mail order catalogue I wish to to send out to my customers. I'm on a tight buget. For the graphic design I would like it fresh and edgy. I have some ideas, I can go through should you contact me.

Also, for the print, I have been thinking about A4 and 24 pages to start with. Glossy cover, printed and back and front.

Any advice regarding the above will be welcomed as I am out of my depth in this area. Please note this is not an immediate project. I am hoping to get this catalogue made in the next month.

Not sure how this all works but its either here or yellow pages. I noticed you guys seem to know what your talking about. this is not a one off project, it is ongoing and I hope to build a good relationship with whom ever designs and prints this catalogue in future.

Thank you all!

Hi Cheyne

Expect to pay around £35.00 per page for a decent Graphic Designer - any more than that and they will be taking you for a ride. (probably in there pastel colour gimpy mini cooper)

I work with a few freelance graphic designers who do top class work who I recommend to everyone. They will be happy to work with you. I can supply you with samples of thier work.

In terms of print I would be delighted to supply you with a quotation. I'm the printer - not the middle man.

Let me know how many you need and I will supply a price on here and we can go from there.

Kind regards

Thank you

Andi,

You're very kind. Please can you email me the samples and quotes. That will be very useful for me.

Unfortunately, it will not be a very large order. Just 2000 if thats ok.

Graphic Designer Prices

Cheyne,

I've written an article on the difference between pricing of graphic designers.

Some charge smaller amounts and others charge much more, the article aims to lift the mystery on why graphic design prices vary so much from firm to firm and freelancer to freelancer.

Best Wishes

There you go again, Andi. What's your problem with graphic designers? Why are you hell-bent on discrediting us?

Promote your 'trade' by all means but the constant snide remarks about our trade really isn't on.

Eagle! - The last time I checked this was a forum. A place to exchange ideas and points of views etc.

This person is just starting out. I just was to adivse her of the best possible and affordable way of getting the job done.

I don't know what your getting so up tight about.

Kind regards

Can you provide some sort of backup Andi for the 'fact' that any designer charging more than £35 per page is 'taking you for a ride'?

Cheers,
Tyler

Andy, plain and simple!!

Don't quote that you know everything about a industry that you don't even work in, I think you would get uptight if I started quoting what the best prices etc about printing dispite the fact im not a printer!!

Zzzzzz

Tyler, I can't provide back up, It's just a point of view.

What is the problem with that?

That's a statement of fact, not a point of view.
