About the Webinar
Some of the most common problems a graphic artist faces are caused by miscommunication. In this webinar, we’ll show you how to use the Pricing and Ethical Guidelines Handbook (otherwise known as, PEGs) to help you minimize or prevent problems that you will most likely encounter when dealing with clients. The Handbook is more than just the pricing guidelines it contains. It is a rich source of information for the different facets of your business and make no mistake – when you set out on your own by freelancing, you are running a business. The Handbook has been a trusted guide for over 45 years and the current edition continues that tradition and can help you navigate the sometimes murky waters of being an independent contractor.
