Please note that all of our work is custom and create-on-demand so these are just estimates. Each project and client are individual so various needs are taken into consideration. We are a small business (doing big things!) and continuously seek ways that we can alleviate our client's loads. As a client, if you know how much you were hoping to spend (whether in dollars or time) on a project, please let us know so that we can cap our time or put together an option that will fit your budget.
