I charge the low end of industry standard rates across all the services I offer. This is done to limit the cost to clients but still allow me to earn a living wage.

I accept payment through PayPal or Interac eTransfer for most jobs. I will sometimes take a cheque from Toronto locals. If you require a different arrangement, please use the Contact page to get in touch with me.

I charge private clients half of the payment up front, half of the rate upon completion of the project. When working with publishers, I work to the publisher’s payment schedule (and am able to work to a publisher’s rate for contractors in most cases).

My rates and approximate ranges for various types of work are as follows–please refer back to the linked pages for more information on what each kind of work entails and turnaround times:
