  • Quotes for large sites (more than 20 unique pages with dynamic elements); community-based sites; and sites featuring e-commerce, webinars, or other application-centered functionality are available upon request.

All quotes are based on hourly rates of $100, billed in 30-minute increments.  However, to make things easier on everyone we’ll figure it all up ahead of time and give you a firm price upfront.  If things get added along the way, we’ll make sure you approve any additional charges before we do the extra work.
