Given the large number of printing companies that compete for printing jobs, having your printing jobs done can be very cheap. Most companies print your brochures for as low as one dollar per brochure or even less. Given this, you can be assured that you will be able to get a great value for your money.
However, you should not only look at the printing costs when you have brochures printed because there are added costs that you may not be able to anticipate. One of these added costs is getting a graphic designer to design your brochure, and in the same way that you look for the best price from your printers, you should also look for a graphic designer that can give you the greatest value.
Looking for a graphic designer
You should first ask your graphic designer is about his or her experience because getting a person with the right professional experience will save you both money and time. It is also a good idea to see his or her portfolio so that you will have an idea of kind of work that he or she does and whether a particular graphic designer is the right person for the job. You should also look for references so that you would have a feel of what his or her previous employers say about the kind of work that he or she does.
Other ways you can make sure that you have chose the right graphic designer is to give him or her little tests like asking them about mistakes you have intentionally put on a brochure or by giving them blank sheets and asking them to show you their ideas for the page. You should also ask the graphic designer how long it would take him to finish the job so that you can see if he can finish it by the time you need it. Most importantly, you should ask him his fees not only for the job but also for other fees such as makeover fees. Having this information can help you decide on which graphic designer can give you the best deal.
Getting a graphic designer to do the design for your brochures can be as practical as picking a printer. This is because there are also a lot of graphic designers to choose from and the key to finding the right one is to have a good idea of what your requirements are and looking for the designer that can fill them.
