Hi guys.

There is a buyer that is asking me how much I charge him for customize one of my logo stings project.

But to be honest I don’t have a clue about how much is the right price for that, because I usually don’t do that service.

Anyone of you guys have any experience with this?

How much is a fair cost? What method do you use for getting paid?

Any advice will be appreciatted! Thanks!

Hey, charge for it as for a usual job, count how many hours it will take and multiply by your hour rate. If you’re not satisfied add something to this number, and you’ll got a final price.

The lowest I’ve ever charged for customizing a logo sting is $20. It took about ten minutes though. I’d normally charge $50 which wouldn’t include the cost of the template or the audio. Some would cost more especially if they take a while to render, there’s a bit more work than drag and drop, or if they want revisions. Most are downloaded, edited, rendered and uploaded in less than an hour though.

Same for anything other than logo stings, but for those I’ll usually charge minimum of $99.

It’s all about getting the right balance of earning a decent amount and charging properly for the value that you’re providing. And it’s difficult with templates… looking at your portfolio, it’s apparent you’re much better in After Effects than I am. However, if I edit and render a template, it’s going to look the same as if you edit and render a template.. unless they want editing of the template itself. So although you could charge more than me for custom work, there’s going to be quite a bit of competition when it comes to something that just requires a relatively basic knowledge of the software, and the software itself.

Just my dos centimos.

Yeah, I like the part on adding something to the number, but it doesn’t work this time :grin:

Just kidding, thanks for the advice!
