Fees & Costs For Services
Sapphire Arts is a small "mom & pop" company from Oregon. We are just like any other company, we offer a service or a product for a fee. But since we are just regular people, we are not trying to get rich off of other people. Consequently, our costs to the customer is, most often, far cheaper than average.
Our products are good quality, despite being on the more inexpensive side. Our customers often comment on them as such. We, literally, try our best to sell our product with a $20/hour rate. If it takes and hour to make it, we sell it for $20. Two hours to make it, $40. And so on. It doesn't always work that way, but we try.
Most often, we err on the side of cheap. For instance, some of our wholesale items bring our hourly down to as low as $5.
Web design has a US National average of around $30 per hour. Some freelance designers (such as us) charge as much as $75 per hour. Of course, the wage increases with experience. But despite our experience (15 years plus), we still only charge $20/hour.
Our connection to you and paying a bill now and then are our biggest concerns. Thank you for being one of our biggest concerns!
