A guide to our pricing


On this page we have attempted to list a number of general services, options and pricing scenarios to give you a rough guide to our pricing.

Our speciality is to create unique custom made systems, so please be aware that this is a guide only! When taking on a project, we like to discuss and document your needs in detail before giving you an accurate price and turn-around time.

General pricing

This is our general charge rate for all work.

Website design / documentation
With every job, we try and pull you in for a meeting to document and discuss your exact needs. From this meeting we then email you a ballpark price and optional greyscale layout diagrams of where things will sit in your website, all free of charge.

If you would like to continue, we then create full colour mock-ups of your new website covering all major pages and systems. Depending on complexity we may also need to write detailed documentation. Once design and documentation is completed (and you have signed off on it), we give you a final fixed price quote and turn-around time on your job. All design and documentation charges will be clearly indicated in advance before we go ahead with any billable work.
