LET'S STICK TOGETHER


We strives to build long-lasting partnerships with our clients. With our retainer program, we become your on-demand creative team, giving you the opportunity to utilize our services over time, and on your own schedule.

WHAT ARE THE PERKS?

CONVENIENCE
Gone are the days of wondering if you can afford to have a particular piece of marketing collateral created. Gone are the delays of getting a price quote before work starts. Enjoy the convenience of just sending a request and having work start on your required piece. There will be no agreements to sign for each individual project and no per project cost.

PRIORITY SERVICE
By securing a guaranteed amount of prioritized design service time, retainer clients are always given a higher priority when it comes to their projects (which are sometimes needed “yesterday”).

CONSISTENCY
Enjoy the creative consistency that comes from using a single firm for all your marketing needs. Relax with the peace of mind that all of your marketing communication pieces will be unified and present your business or organization’s image in the best, most professional light.

COST EFFECTIVE AND CUSTOMIZED
Maybe you just need a graphic or web designer for a few hours do minor monthly updates. Or you may have a major project coming up and need a designer for a week or two each month! Whatever your individual case may be, we’ll work with you to develop a plan that fits your unique needs.

DISCOUNTED DESIGN RATES
Without retainer, our normal hourly design rate starts at $60. Retainer clients receive discounts of up to 35% on our hourly rates! Along with the benefits and convenience of monthly billing and securing a lower hourly rate, a limited number of unused hours may also be carried forward to the following month. 

NO ADDED OVERHEAD
With the monthly retainer service, Design Ninja Studios is an extension of your business and you will have the resources available to get your advertising, marketing and design done right; without making space in your office, paying for equipment or added employee costs and benefits.

Consider the costs (time and money) you’ll save compared with hiring and employing an in-house designer:

  • Full-Time Salary
  • Benefits Package (medical insurance, dental, vision, etc.)
  • Overhead and workspace (office, expensive hardware and software, payroll)
  • Vacation and sick time and more…

The cost of employing a full-time designer can put an unnecessary strain on your “bottom line”. Contact us today to see how we can meet your specific needs more cost effectively!

ACCOUNTABILITY
Each month you will get a report of the work created, the time used, and the amount of retainer if any left to be used. A regular weekly or monthly call will be set up to allow us to discuss your account, and address any design needs you may have as well as to report on progress of any outstanding work.

DIRECT CONTACT
In addition to the regular calls to discuss your account, a secured webpage will be set up where you can review or download your requested work. Depending on your preferred method of contact, communication can be facilitated by phone, email, or instant messenger to allow real-time online contact.

WHAT DO YOU GET?

  • Graphic Design Services: Full service graphics and design
  • Website Services: New pages, updates, graphics, re-occurring updates (new website design and functions can not be included)

PAYMENT

The full retainer amount is due at the time of the contract signing. As services are used, time is deducted from the pre-paid retainer. All work performed is itemized after each task is completed to show usage – you can access this information via the client portal anytime!

TERMS

The retainer contract requires a minimum commitment of 3 months. After discussing which option works best, 6, 12 or longer month terms are also available.

LEFTOVERS? OVERAGES?

We do our best to make sure you stay up-to-date on the status of your retainer hours, but ultimately it’s your responsibility to make sure they’re used within the monthly time frame. We allow you to roll over unused hours to the following month only. Any unused hours after that are forfeited. For the 20hr plan, you can roll over up to 5 hours to the following month only.

However, if you have a 10 hour retainer, but you need 15 hours worth of work in a given month, we bill you the additional 5 hours at the same rate as the retainer; not the normal bill rate.
