What is a quotation? A quotation, as defined by the dictionary, “is a formal statement setting out the estimated cost for a particular job or service.” A quotation is especially important for freelance workers such as artists, graphic designers, interior designers, and Web designers. This is an essential document when doing a project.

These quotations are sent out to a client, which contains a list of prices and the total cost of a particular project. Through this, clients will be able to decide if they want you to design the project that they need. If you need a template to help you quote your client, you can download our samples below.

Tips in Writing a Quotation

  • Study the project details – as a designer, it is important to know the details of the project that you are potentially going to work on. This will allow you to know if you are capable of doing the project.
  • Discover the client’s budget – knowing your client’s budget is also necessary in order for you to know how much to charge them. If a client pays you lower than what you normally charge, this way you can refuse to do the project.
  • Set your rates – if you are a freelance designer, it is important to set rates for your services. Having set rates for the various services that you provide will make it easier for you to charge your clients.
  • Know your competitors – research about the services that your competitors offer. Through this, you will be able to improve your services while having the same rate but with a higher quality.
  • Be professional – when communicating with your clients, it is important to always be professional.
  • Be transparent – when dealing with your clients, be transparent by providing them with as much details about the project.
