Retainer Services

How Does It Work?

A retainer fee is like a monthly design fee. It is paid upfront each month before work is ordered. Essentially, you are paying for time versus a specific service.

  • A 3 month minimum is required. We will re-evaluate at the end of the first 3 months whether your need more time for your projects.
  • I will provide services for the set number of hours selected per month. Please see pricing below as packages are based on 4, 10 or 20 hours a month. Any overage in design time will be billed at my standard hourly rate.
  • I make your projects a priority and plan my workload to allocate time for your projects. Unused hours expire at the end of each month.
  • Payment will be due on the 1st of each month, for the month ahead.
  • A detailed time report will also be submitted to you every 1st of the month
  • You will be notified if we are getting close to the monthly hours and if additional time is needed for the month, you will be made aware before committing to pay extra.
