Our standard banners are $45.00 for all sizes. That is considerably less than fees charged by most digital advertising agencies - and somewhat more than the low budget cookie-cutter banner 'factories'. We have been designing banners since 1998 (with the same team) and considering that the first banner was created in 1993 (or 1994 depending on who you ask), we have more expereince in this field than just about anyone. Its a very good deal.
Some banner design projects have complex design requirements that go beyond our standard banners - and for those we quote appropriate industry standard rates.
Our typical turnaround time is 24 hours. It can take up to 48 hours on weekends, holidays or when we have a very heavy workload.
Yes. While others seem to rely on one-time "spontaneous purchases" we approach things a little differently. We like to know if our style is a good match for you - so we suggest that you order a single banner first via our demo system. When that order is completed to your satisfaction and paid for, you can then let us know if you would like a banner package and we will deduct the cost of your first banner from the package price.
Here are some of our most popular banner size packages:
Four Banner Package - $130: Four banner sizes (any size).
Six Banner Package - $190: Six banner sizes (any size).
Ten Banner Package - $300: Ten banner sizes ((any size).
All the packages above are for additional banner sizes based on the first design.
Note that we don't just cram your banner design into different sizes; we reamake and optimze each banner size so that all the sizes look great. We also have reduced priced packages for multiple unique banner designs for regular customers (only) at very attractive rates.
We are glad to provide discounts for multiple banner orders to regular customers. We recommend that you order a banner via our demo system first if you have never used our services before. That way, you get a good sense of our style and that should help you make your decision. Pricing for multiple banner orders is always discounted and is determined per project. We are also willing to consider outsourcing if you have a customer base who you think could benefit from our banner design, website design, custom logo design or custom Wordpress theme design services.
Animated banners are in .gif format and static banners are in .jpg or .png format
This is by far the most common question that we ask our clients. Many people mistakenly place orders for a banner when what they actually want is a header graphic.
Design lingo can be confusing, so we'll define terms (as they relate to our products) here:
Banner : A "banner" is a banner ad. Most often used on other websites to advertise your website. Examples of banners can be seen on our banner samples page. You can order a banner any size (either animated or static) from our order form for $45.00 with no advance payment. This order form is only for banners.
Header graphic : Some people call header graphics "banners" and this is where the confusion starts. A header graphic is a design element at the top of your webpage that might contain graphics and images that help define the look of your site. They also usually contain a logo. Some websites are specifically designed to use a header graphic - and that makes it very simple to change the graphic and give the site a whole new look and feel. For other sites, using a header graphic requires changes to the overall design and layout. We can create custom header graphics (for sites specifically designed to use header graphics) at prices starting at around $150.00. For other sites, there is often more work involved and we provide pricing for those per case. To order or inquire about a header graphic, use our contact form so that we can have a look at your website and give you a price quote. Please don't use our banner order form to order header graphics.
We use the term "custom banner" to refer to banners (ad banners) that we custom design and can be ordered via our free demo system for $45.00. We can make just about any type (animated or static) or size banner you need, including (but not limited to) the following common sizes:
The main goal of the free demo is to introduce you to our design services and show you our style and how we work. It cuts out most of the unnecessary back-and-forth people have to go through when dealing with a new design team, and just lets us show you our stuff with minimal fuss and bother. You order it, we make it - and if you like it you buy it. If you have never used any of our services before, we suggest you order a banner through the demo system first. The demo system provides a very fast turnaround (usually within 24 hours) and there is no obligation - you'll be able to see the completed banner before you buy.
Our custom banner templates are geared toward clients with some image editing skills who need banners in which the content is frequently changed. We can provide custom banner design templates delivered with all source files so that you can make changes to the banner yourself as needed. These banner templates take considerably longer to create than our regular custom banners and have different pricing. If you would like more information on custom banner template pricing, please contact us via our contact form. We don't currently offer "generic" (non-custom) banner templates as we feel they would be very limited in effectiveness (to be effective a banner must highlight YOUR unique products and services and it is very unlikely a generic banner template could accomplish that). We do get quite a few visitors that appear to be looking for "banner templates" but we are at a loss as to why anyone would want a generic, multiple sale, boiler-plated banner template when a custom designed banner is only $45.00. We are, however, always open to ideas - so if you are looking for something that we don't offer just drop us a note via our contact form and we'll look into it.
We keep source files around for quite a while, so modifications such as new sizes, text changes etc. are reasonably priced if based on a banner you previously purchased.
We don't make that public. We also never include visible design credits on any websites (or any design credits at all if requested by the client) we design. Nearly all of our regular clients are established companies, and they don't want the details of their online presence available (especially to their competition) unless they choose to make it available.
Our website design and Wordpress theme design work is done as work-for-hire, all IP rights go to the client upon full payment for a project and we do not ever put it in any public portfolio. We do display a few selected banner design examples on our banner design samples page, and we reserve the right to do that with our banner designs - unless you specifically request that we don't when you place your order.
Also, since most "testimonials" you see online are fake, we never include them on our website - and we never annoy our clients by asking for them.
All of this is considered to be huge value-add by our existing clients. We have been in business for a long time and we have an excellent reputation - but we don't expect new clients to take our word for it, so we are more than happy to provide relevant portfolio examples and verifiable references to qualified potential clients who contact us as part of our proposals for website design and Wordpress theme design projects.
Over the years we have developed very long lasting working relationships with our internet banner ad design clients and, as a result, our services have expanded to include not only custom animated banners but numerous related services:
CSS/XHTML Website design and redesign, Wordpress custom theme design and implementation, front end design for open source and commercial PHP applications, and much more. All of our development services are done with the same level of skill, speed, dedication and budget awareness as our standard services. If you have tried one of our standard services and need more, contact us here to discuss your project.
We offer fully custom logo design with logos created to your specifications for less than $300. We create all logos in vector format (essential for maximum web/print flexibility and real world use) and provide deliverables in all standard formats for both web and print use.
Unlike many budget logo designers, we put the time in when we create your logo. We learn about your company in depth and we research your market and your competition. We listen to your ideas and provide several rough designs for you to choose from before selecting a final design. Every aspect of your logo will be 100% original, and the final result will be a design that you can be proud of, will represent your company in the best possible way and will also be flexible enough for the huge variety of print and digital uses that a logo for a successful company requires.Contact us for a quote.
