Every once in a while someone posts asking for advice for what to charge when doing a freelance project. I freelance full-time, and I use a special form to help me ask the right questions and calculate a fair price. I picked it up somewhere in art school. Although each project is different, its been a very helpful guide.
Do you have Adobe Acrobat reader installed? The link is for a pdf file which you can read with that program. I actually think there is a free version out there. Let me know if you need help in accessing it.
Thanks to Cedric! Generous info like this doesn't just help me in pricing my own work but improves the industry. Underbidding, whether by my own mistake or not, hurts everyone when it gives false expectations to clients for work in the future.
Another bump for this usefulthread - I know, it's really old, and got bumped once before... but I just discoverred it myself (via searching instead of asking the same question again - aren't y'all proud of me?) and I too want to chime in with belated thanks for posting this... plus it can't hurt to bump it 'cause people could always use something like this.
Thanks, Cedric (and hope you and your family are all doing well!)
