You want to know the price.
We get that.
Our pricing guide can help.
We understand that your time is valuable and that knowing — at least roughly — how much your creative project might cost saves you both time and frustration. At LaCroix Creative, we aren’t into hiding our fees. We’d rather have open communication and transparency. With that said, here are our general prices for the various creative services that we offer.
Our hourly rate: $80
While many of our assignments are quoted either as flat fees or accepted in the form of montly retainters, our general “ala carte” fee is
$80 an hour, billed by the quarter hour, with a minimum charge of a quarter hour ($20).
Our discounted monthly retainers
If you use our creative services regularly and often, you can receive a considerable discount by putting LaCroix Creative on retainer. Retainers are highly recommended for businesses that use us for creative services on a monthly basis.
Bronze Package: $750 for 10 hours per month ($75 an hour)
Silver Package: $1,400 for 20 hours per month ($70 an hour)
Gold Package: $1,950 for 30 hours per month ($65 an hour)
Platinum Package: $2,400 for 40 hours per month ($60 an hour)
All retainer packages are paid up front via autopayment. Additional monthly hours are billed at the rate of $80 an hour. There is no reimbursement for unused hours, and retainer fees are not refundable for any reason. Customized retainers can be created. Please contact us for more information.
Our flat fees for creative services
At LaCroix Creative, we’ve found that flat fees work out better overall than hourly fees, particularly when projects are “finite” — that is, they have clear start and end dates and well-definined perameters. With a hard-quoted, flat fee, there’s never a question about how much a project — within its well-defined parameters — will cost. It makes budgeting much easier for you and helps us better fulfill your expectations.
Every project is considered and quoted individually. However, while your final quoted price might differ from the fees listed on this page, you can still use this guide to get an idea regarding how much your project might cost. All of our flat fees represent a discounted rate off our regular $80 hourly fee.

Every project is unique. And so are its costs.
With that in mind, the above listed prices might or might not reflect the final fee that we actually quote for your project. Of course, we reserve the right to change our prices at any time. We offer this price guide as a way for you — our potential customer — to get an idea about project costs. However, the best way to find out what your project will actually cost is to request a free initial consultation. We’ll discuss all the ins and outs of your project and present you with a contract that fully outlines our services, your fees, and how you will be billed.
