Frequently Asked Questions

We have listed for you some of the most frequently asked questions.
If you can't find the answer here, send us an email and we'll be happy to answer your question!

What services do you provide?

Jademar Design provides a full-range of graphic design services to businesses of all sizes. We also can help you with copy-writing, project management and print coordination. For a full list of our capabilities, visit our Services section; or, contact us directly if you have a specific project in mind.

What software do you use?

We use Adobe industry-standard graphic design software. This includes Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Indesign, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Dreamweaver and Adobe Flash. If need be, we can also create editable, customized templates in Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint.

How much do you charge?

Our prices vary from project to project. It really depends on the elements and complexity of the job. Before starting any job though, we will consult with you - free of charge - and give you an accurate detailed estimate.

How long does it take for you to do a project?

Again, this depends on the elements and complexity of the job. Sometimes, projects can take one hour...sometimes two weeks or longer. We always try to work with your timeline, so if you need it done asap, let us know!

Are you also a printing company?

We are not a printing company; however, we have great relationships with local and national print vendors that can help you! We would be happy to coordinate your print project with one of our preferred vendors and get you quotes, paper samples, proofs, or manage the printing for you.

Do you work with clients that are located in other states?

Yes! We have clients all over the nation. Even though we are based in Michigan, we can work with you on your project via internet conferencing and email communications. As with our local clients, final files are sent to you via email or a ftp site.

How do you accept payment?

We request a signed estimate and 50% down payment prior to beginning any project. This is payable via a company check or cash. The remaining 50% is payable upon completion of the project, prior to delivery of original artwork.

Do you work for trade or offer pro-bono services?

Jademar Design does not work for trade. This is how we make our living! Sometimes, we do pro-bono work for non-profit organizations. Please email us for more details.

Why should I use your services when I can use an online marketing/printing service or one of those design contest/crowd-sourcing sites?

Jademar Design offers affordable, one-on-one customized service and design that is specific to YOUR company. We work with you from pre-to-post production on your project and keep you in the loop during the entire process. Mock-ups and proofs are explained in detail; and, once the project is finish, we also make sure you have all the files. We also give you a cheat-sheet as to how to use the files for future use. Our designs are never a template. They are specific to your needs and the personality of your company.

Design contest/crowd-sourcing sites harm the effectiveness and value of design. There is also no personal engagement or relationship with the client. Many times, the designer is working fast and free in hopes of being awarded a small compensation while the contest site is making a profit. Additionally, many designers on these sites are beginners and are limited on technique and skills. It usually ends in bad design and bad files.

  • Behind
    the
    Name

    What is the meaning of Jademar?

    Jademar is a combination of the names Jade plus Mar (derived from the designer’s first name). Jade is considered to be one of the most beautiful and valuable gemstones in the world. Because the stone’s composition is hard and durable, it takes patience and much care to skillfully and delicately carve it into an object of beauty. Through such dedicated workmanship, Jade has become a symbol for quality, integrity, resourcefulness, and discipline. It is these virtues that we hold to be true at Jademar Design.

  • Our
    Experience &
    Background
