    I have no clue what the ideal price is in London, but it's always better to charge per image or project as oppose to hourly rate, so you don't have to hear something like, "It took you how many hours? I thought it only gonna take you a few minutes 'cause that's what you do."

      Vehicle Wrap - Graphic Artist Rates
      by lcramer53
      One Wrap company said that their graphic artist rate was a flat $95, I don't know how a flat rate like this could work when the client is expecting several custom and varying designs from which to choose. Rate ideas?
