Below you will see the rates and fees divided into 3 Tiers. Each Tier represents a commitment level (Single Season Design / Single Season Design + Caption Head / Multi Season Design and/or Caption Head). The Tier divisions don't represent difficulty levels or quality levels of your show. You chose that, and then your show is designed accordingly. It is important to note that no matter which Tier your request falls into, you can expect the same high level of design and attention to detail in your show.
