BRANDING IDENTITY DEVELOPMENT: $4,500-$6,500+
We begin with a conversation, and a visit to your business if you are located in Santa Fe or Yakima, then create a mood board of inspirations and sketches to begin developing, enhancing, or refining your company’s branding. Our process includes close, personalized work alongside each client to determine font and color selection and final logo design, giving you the core elements that will be used in all of your company’s future branding and identity collateral. (We travel, too! If you are not local to New Mexico or Washington state but would like an in-person business visit as part of your project, we are more than happy to work with you to arrange travel to your location.)
STATIONERY PACKAGES: $1,500-$3,000+
Once your branding identity development has been completed, we design beautiful and memorable custom print pieces from business cards to a full suite of letterhead, envelopes, notecards, and more. We source high-quality print services of the final designs from specialty shops which produce letterpress, embossing, debossing, die cutting, hand-painted edging, spot UV, and other high-end effects as well as high quality cotton, linen, feltweave, kraft, and other fine papers.
PRINT ADVERTISING: $300-$600+
From the Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper to Art in America magazine, we are experienced in designing print advertising for the best impact of your brand in print publications, and working with your ad rep and printer specifications to get files turned in on time, in excellent compliance with each publication’s requirements.
SIGNAGE DESIGN: $800-$1,500+
Our signage designs are elegant and eye-catching, and our graphics are built to translate into a finely made product that is sure to be a showcase piece for your branding. We work with top quality production shops to create watercut metal, routered wood, sandblasted stone, and recycled plastic signage as well as other special materials to best meet your needs. We arrive in person to measure your space and storefront (if local to Santa Fe or Yakima), provide digital renderings of proposed signage shown to size on photographs of your building, and coordinate bids, fabrication, and even delivery and installation of your signs with the best manufacturers. We are familiar with Santa Fe’s historic review and signage application processes and provide the files and changes you need to receive approval from the city, working side-by-side with you throughout the permitting process. (If you’re not local, talk to us about travel. We can come to you!)
T-SHIRTS, PACKAGING, AND MERCHANDISE: $500-$2,500+
Promote your brand with customized t-shirts, product packaging, cd and book covers, and other merchandise like tote bags, lookbooks, labels, hangtags, pens, post-its, or calendars.

Let us know what you’re dreaming of, and we can help design and create it, from concept to completion.
CUSTOM ILLUSTRATION: $1,000-$2,500+
Bring your brand to its full potential with singular, custom artwork created just for you. Just say no to clip art and stock drawings! Our illustrations are drawn specially to fulfill your individual request and your company’s needs, and range from pen and ink to watercolor to oil paint and woodblock, to be used in logos, stationery, websites, t-shirts, signage, cards, maps, cd covers, book layouts, and more.
The Fine Print
WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED:
The price of printing, shipping, website hosting, domain registration, product/merchandise investment (i.e. t-shirts, new fonts, stock photography, or other hard costs) is not included in our pricing guides. We will research and present options to you, and work within your budget to find the best available options to complete your new designs. There are no up-charges or reseller fees to Think for any of these costs; we let you know the real prices from a selection of recommended vendors and help you decide. Clients in the state of New Mexico must pay applicable Gross Receipts tax.
We look forward to starting on your project as soon as possible. However, we ask you to leave plenty of time to truly enjoy the design and creative process. A website can take 4-9 months to develop and launch, depending on your needs, feedback, and approval process. Stationery, signage, and shirts can take 2-6 weeks for print production after the design approval process has been completed, depending on your order specifications and fabricator. The design process can range from 4-12 weeks or more, depending on the client.
All of our design services for maintenance and other tasks in addition to the packages listed above are available at the hourly rate of $125. This includes work such as website and design updates, meetings, and other requests.
Every project solution is crafted to meet individual clients’ needs. On average, our small business clients spend approximately $10,000-$15,000 per moderately-sized initial project. Larger projects may cost $20,000-$40,000 or more. For smaller budgets, special pricing and package ideas are suggested in our pricing guide above, and we are happy to chat with you about your goals and budget requirements as well. Most of our clients return throughout the years for all of their graphic and web design needs, with requests from small updates or additions for $100 or so, to larger additional projects closer to the original scope and pricing. Whether you want to spend $1,000 or $10,000 on your brand, we are here to work with you.
We accept a deposit of 50% of the estimate in order to begin work on your contract, followed by incremental billings of the accrued balance each month as work continues. The final balance is due upon project completion.
OWNERSHIP + PORTFOLIO APPEARANCE:
Our clients own the work that they have paid for. Your website files live on your own hosting account; we provide you a print-ready package of final files from logos and color specifications to advertising and merchandise layouts that meet your printer’s specifications; you will receive completed layouts of your press releases for your use. Think All Day retains rights to the source files we have created for you, including original artwork, programming, and other work produced on each client’s behalf. Think All Day also retains permission for credit to the work (i.e. a hyperlink and credit in the footer of your website), and the ability to showcase work produced for our clients on Think’s own website, portfolio, blog, and social media.
