    I think that sounds low. For a really professional job I think you're looking at more like $50. But then if it's something simple someone reletively inexperienced can do then maybe you can get it for $25.

    Great Break down!

    Actually, it really depends on skill. Like others said, if you're hiring someone that's been doing it for long...Then I guess he/she would charge a bit higher. Nonetheless,it's the quality of work that will pay off!!

    Yes it all depends, but look through their portfolio carefully, before you make any decisions. Ask if they any references too. Expect to pay $20/hr and up.

    This will vary based on type of website, extra features, amount of work to create your site, the expertise of the graphic designer and many other factors. You'll just need to compare rates.

    You get what you pay for

    Just as with anything, you get what you pay for.

    Rates in the US range from $25/hr to $85/hr. You'll want to review a designer's portfolio and credentials before choosing one.

    wow. you guys seriously undercut yourself.
    $20/hr? I wouldnt even get out of bed for that.
    I charge $50/hr.
    the benefit of charging a higher rate, is you get the better clients.
    you charge $10 and every man and his dog wants something done.
    you charge $50, and you only get professional jobs.
    which really after doing degrees et al, do you really want to be getting LESS than a checkout chick?
