Don’t go into a relationship without knowing what you may need down the road. Ask the designer what file format you will receive for your print project. Most designers only supply a press-ready PDF unless the client specifies that they want all native files and is included in the prices of the project (it would be like going to a gourmet restaurant and asking the chef for a copy of his recipe free of charge). For instance, what happens if you need a photo used in a brochure for a PowerPoint presentation? Unless you have asked and paid for the native files of the brochure, you’re probably not going to get that photo without an additional charge.

The Old Consulate Inn in Port Townsend, WA, was bought by a couple of friends of mine and they needed a rack card to put on the ferries and around town. I’ve had the opportunity to stay there as a guest and love its charm. This is the rack card I designed, pro bono. I also took several of the photos used on the card.
