Communications Projects

Project Request Process

We want to work with you. To get things started, please complete the Communications Project Request form and a member of our team will contact you to confirm your goals, timeline and budget. With that information, we provide all clients with a proposal including cost and time estimates for your approval.

Estimates and Billing

Proposals and estimates are provided before the start of any project. A signed agreement is necessary before production begins.

We keep clients aware of progress against estimates throughout the project, and we send a formal invoice at the end of the project. Changes in project scope may result in additional fees.

Our Rates

We apply a flat $65/hour rate for all services and work completed in-house*. If our workload requires the use of external resources, we will provide advance notice and cost confirmation prior to initiating work.

Our rush rate is 1.5 times our standard rate. Rush rates may be applied in instances when schedules must be rearranged, resulting in weekend or overtime work to complete the project. Video and photo projects that are scheduled during weekend and after hour periods will automatically incur these additional fees. Clients will be notified in advance if a rush rate applies in other circumstances.

Printing and hard-good costs are priced separately. For these items, we obtain competitive vendor bids to ensure the best value for your money.

*NC State Marketing Communications Photographers charge $70/hour.
