    After 13 years of continuous full-time employment as graphic designer/art director, I was laid off about a month ago. A few weeks ago, I started freelancing in the central/southeastern PA area.

    The thing I need help with is one small job that I am doing for a local remodeling place. He asked me if I could design a business card using an already existing logo. I am initially doing three variations for him to choose from, then he will handle the printing. How much should I charge him? I tend to usually bill about $40/hour. I'm figuring this job will be in the $200 range. Is that too little or too much?

    Thanks for any help you guys can provide.

    If your work is of suitable, professional quality, then I think you're right on the money (no pun intended :) )

    I think that's a fair price.

    It looks like you have already sorted out your hourly rate, but this website might be food for thought and help you realise work out your minimum hourly rate for a job. freelanceswitch.com/rates/
