Great, we love working with designers or even lovely people with a friend or brother that is doing their design. We will happily advise you (or your brother) on how to make your designs letterpress-compatible. Hate doing tedious pre-press work? Never fear — leave it to us. If it's something basic that can be done lickity quick, consider it done. If you need color traps built or illustrations translated into press-ready artwork, we can provide you with an estimate for pre-press charges.
Where to begin?
Whether you've got a vision and just need to see it realized or don't really even know where to start, we are just the folks to help. We can exchange emails, phone calls or even meet lucky locals in person to brainstorm your project, design and/or illustrations. Once we have parameters for the project, you'll be provided with a complete estimate for the printed goods including design & illustration fees. The design fee usually includes a rough of the art/design direction and a proof of the design with one round of text and art edits. This is typically sufficient to get most designs press ready. Design or text edits beyond this will be subject to hourly fees.
