Business, Trade and Ethics Advice Written by Pros

Our industry standard guide, the Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing and Ethical Guidelines (PEGs), is invaluable in the classroom. In the new 16th edition, released May 18, 2021, we’ve updated pricing guidelines, sample contracts, best practices, and more. We’ve also added a chapter on using skills and talents to maximize income with multiple revenue streams. And we’ve added a brand-new feature—interviews with 11 self-employed graphic artists who have created successful careers, using many of the practices found in this Handbook

Many professional designers cite the PEGs as the book that taught them how to run a successful business.
