For me, I get a lot of inquiries where the communication
ends when I produce a rough estimate as in “we’re talking
in the $xxx range.” That’s life with doing custom work.

The only people who reliably know what stuff should
cost are pros like architects. Most everybody else on
the client side comes into the conversation in a delusional
trance in my experience.

The cooler your portfolio work the more you’ll be able
to charge for everyday casework and things of that
ilk. Not that you can go crazy, but the stronger your
body of work is the more clients are to consider you
the real expert and accept your pricing.
