Custom Design FAQ
Questions and answers about custom design services with Veda Designs.
Custom Design Costs:
Custom From Scratch designs are $1500 and Custom Prebuilts are $1000. Both require a 50% deposit to confirm scheduling & secure an opening on my calendar. Visit the Features & Pricing page for detailed information about what's included with each package.
Scheduling priority is given by payment date. Regrettably, I'm unable to hold an opening on my calendar without payment.
Custom designs built from scratch are those that use whatever colors, fonts, layout & graphical elements you want. Although custom designs can end up with similar looking layouts due to a finite number of layout variations possible, the base graphics are entirely unique. The design is built entirely to your specification and is intended for those who don't mind paying a premium for a completely unique design.
Prebult custom designs are those I've already created, but am only offering for sale to a single person. These are designs that I've either developed in my spare time or were originally created for someone else, who was cancelled for non-payment. Custom prebuilt designs can be revised in any way you want as long as we don't exceed the 25 total hours of development time included.
Custom designs built from scratch take significantly longer to create than Templates or Prebuilt Custom designs, which already have the layout code developed. Although it varies depending on the type of design and the number of revisions we do, custom designs built from scratch generally aren't ready to launch for at least 5-7 weeks from our start date. That includes the initial design stage, revisions based on your feedback, development and final testing.
Regrettably, my availability for custom designs built from scratch is very limited. Because I am only able to schedule these once every 4-6 weeks, I tend to book out very far in advance. If you're in a need of a website more quickly, one idea to consider is going with a template design and ordering non-standard customizations to give it more of a custom/unique look.
Custom designs have no limit on the number of revisions that can be done. However, all work must be completed within the 50 hours of total development time. If more time is needed to finsih development, those additional hours will be logged and added to your final invoice. The same rule applies for Custom Prebuilt designs, but within a 25 hours instead..
We can change whatever you want as long as all work is completed within the total number of work hours included with my fee. Additional hours beyond that will be logged as 'Extended Developkment' time and added as a separate charge to your final invoice.
Photos to be used within the design are needed before I can start development on a custom prebuilt or built from scratch design. The reason is because photos have a big impact on how I create those custom base graphics. If your photos won't be ready by our start date, it will be necessary for us to reschedule for whatever date you expect to have them back from your photographer.
Availability for custom design is extremely limited. Due to the time investment involved, I only take on one custom design built from scratch every 4-6 weeks. For this reason, I tend to book out several months in advance on built-from-scratch custom designs.
Although prebuilt custom designs have a much faster turnaround because the initial design phase is already complete, how often I can schedule these will depend on availability of designs.
Examples of previous custom design work can be found in my Portfolio.
To order, please visit my contact page and fill out the custom design request form. If you are requesting a prebuilt custom site, you can jump stright to the Getting Started page if you'd like to order & confirm scheduling immediately. However, if you are requesting a built from scratch custom design, I'll need to correspond with you about the type of design you have in mind before scheduling can be confirmed.
