Web design is generally priced in two ways: price per-page
or price per-hour.
As it implies, price per-page ends up as a boiler plate
kind of site which may or may not suit your needs.
Price per-hour implies customization, and that is where
we feel a client gets the most for their money.
Though customization means more labor cost, a client should
consider that a 15% - 50% increase in cost per page can easily offer a
50% - 100% improvement in page dynamics.
California Web Wise is glad to accommodate either way
of pricing, but recommends per-hour pricing. Ask yourself, if more interesting
page dynamics brings in only one more client, will it pay for itself?
Will attractive pages make people more likely to return or create a bookmark?
We think so.

There are just too many variables with
pricing to to set things in concrete here. More exact figures can be arrived
at with a free consultation.
Most of our work is performed at a very reasonable $65 per hour, including
Some variables to consider are:
- Domain registration
- Copy writing and editing
- Search engine submission
- Site maintenance
- Graphics design:
- Photo Retouching
Since no two projects are alike, it is simply impossible
to give a ballpark price without a consultation, but generally our Web
design prices are between $1,500 and $7,000.
