With type conference season in high gear, designers everywhere are uttering sighs of disbelief at the prohibitive costs of getting one’s geek on.

The discussions over conference fees, travel and hotel expenses are understandable.

Type Design: Freelance Pricing Advice

Forums:

Does anyone out there have a general pricing guide they use for freelance type design?
