Default Pricing work done by a non profit design collective

Helloooo! I do a bit of design work for a non profit design collective which in turn is part of a larger non profit organisation. Currently, this design collective does work for other non profit groups and charities. As such we don't charge as a regular design sudio would, most cash comes in the form of donations.

A price list of suggested prices to ask clients has been drafted.

What do you think of the these prices:

Print Work
Logo and Stationary Design - £350
(incl Logo, Letterhead, Biz Card and Comp Slip)

Leaflet - A4 colour double sided, gate fold - £350

Newsleter - A4 8 page - £500

Magazine - A4 Colour 16 pages £1000

Web Work
Wordpress site (with template redisgn) - £500

Joomla site (with add ons) - £700

Web Baker site - £400

All sites hosting £15 per annum

The clients we deal with are non-profits and charities so don't have oodles of cash to play with. That said, the above prices are suggestions and not set in stone. The client pays what they can reasonably afford or what they're willing to pay. This can be as little as £50 for example.

The cost of the print work is for the design work only.

The chap in charge of the group says the design collective has to recover the time cost and effort of prodicing the design work. My main concern however is that this may be on the high side, esp as it does not include printing. Some high st print shops throw in basic design for free.

So what do others think of the above prices? Too high, judt right or even too low?

Not really. They just don't separate the price out on an invoice. The collective might want to ally with a printer to compensate. Most printers will give a healthy discount to a designer (the money they would otherwise be dedicating to their design staff).

Prices seem realistic to me, particularly when you are so willing to negotiate.

Well some printers I have seen DO provide basic artwork. They use it as a way to attect customers by saying "free artwork service" Of course, the quality varies.

Yes, but my point is that they have it included in the base price. If you come to them as a designer, ready to give them printing that has been designed, they will generally give you a discount of 5 to 15% because they don't have to do the free design.
