Sometimes we receive a text in computer format, such as Msword. The text is well edited for grammar and spelling. The photos are all digital, labeled with captions which tie them to their appropriate location in the text.
But, more oftem we receive a text scrawled on yellow pads and barely legible. The photos are contained in a shoebox and more illegible writing appears on the back side of some photos. A hand-written note requests that we make a book out of this—which we do!
We can work to either standard, however, the amount of work is very different. For this reason, we do not have any standard rates. It is more accurate to quote each job separately.
