Graphic Design

graphic-design.jpgAt Number 9 Recording Studio, we are the alternative to big-house firms where graphic design costs can run into the thousands of dollars. It’s not that we skimp on style or ability, we simply match your requirements without pushing you in a direction you don’t want to go. Sometimes you only need a little touch-up, sometimes you need the entire package. By adjusting to the particulars of your project, we’re able to save you time and money. And since our design fully integrates with our duplication department, the usual headache of organization of materials is completely non-existent.

As a complement to our duplication facilities, Number 9’s graphic design department sees a lot of action. Creating and editing countless CD and DVD face prints, adjusting insert layouts and running compatibility diagnostics is all in a day’s work.

Services

Number 9’s strength is in versatility. We deal primarily with music-oriented projects for up and coming musicians, so we understand budgets must be stretched as far as possible. Mix and match from our listed services to enhance and maintain your visual impact.

  • Complete Design
    Starting from scratch, we work with you to conceptualize, develop, design and produce any printed material. Knowing where and how to start can be intimidating, especially when worrying about technical specifications, but we’ll help you get off on the right foot. Just bring us some sketches, mock-ups, photos – or nothing at all. Let us handle the guesswork and you’ll be free to realize your vision.
  • Professional Layout
    Given the proliferation of design software, you might be comfortable with beginning your project from home. In this scenario, you’ve begun collecting images, fonts, text, etc and have produced some initial drafts. Now you need to take it to the next level – and that’s where we come in. Number 9 will use your existing material and elevate it to your desired end. We help you finalize details, fill any missing elements, and finish your project with professional standards. Before you start, we strongly recommend grabbing the appropriate template to avoid any hassles.
  • Template Adjustments
    Nothing is more frustrating than half a word being cut from the edge of the page all because the layout was off by a quarter of an inch. Although all duplication templates used by Number 9 are industry standards, perhaps your design wasn’t started from one of our templates or even from any template at all. While your print files are still editable, we can adjust your design in preparation for printing.
  • Early Pre-Flight
    The most simple service Number 9 offers in terms of print design is ensuring your files will print as intended. We don’t edit the files in any manner, we simply check them for broken image links, missing fonts, correct colour spaces, template misalignments and any other possible errors that might arise. Waiting until the manufacture’s pre-flight catches a problem can result in unexpected fees and delays – the earlier an issue can be tackled the less likely it will become a headache.

All services are priced on an hourly rate, project-based pricing is also available. In most cases, a initial consultation is arranged and you are provided with a free estimate on total expected project costs. You retain copyright for all designs and receive a digital copy of all design files upon completion.
