Toast Time does away with the standard hourly charging structure that most creative agencies use.
If you need ad-hoc graphic design services (or any service we offer for that matter) you’d usually expect to be quoted per hour, even for the smallest of jobs.
Toast Time is the pre-bought time that you can use as and when you need it and is used in one-minute blocks.
We think this is better value for money.
What makes it different is that we work in one-minute blocks rather than in blocks of one hour.
This makes Toast Time perfect if you have the odd job that needs doing, have repeat work or quick projects – your designers know how to do it, you just need them to get it done and not charge you a small fortune!
Because Toast Time is paid for in advance, there’s one invoice; that’s less admin and accountancy time which allows us to work in one-minute blocks – this gives you a lot of flexibility and you avoid paying too much for small tasks.
It also means that when you put a call in, you’ve already on our systems, so we can get your job done without delay.
That’s why our clients love Toast Time.
You can buy Toast Time in minutes, with a minimum charge of £120 ex VAT for 120 minutes of time.
It’s bought in advance, and there’s one invoice (saving accounting and admin time).
When you have design requests, you can call or open a ticket and one of our design team will complete the job and record the number of minutes used.
Note that we’ll always advise in advance with an estimate of how much time we think your request will take.
Time is recorded by the minute, so if the job takes seven minutes, we simply take seven minutes off your Toast Time total.
If you have repeat projects or larger jobs, you can also use your Toast Time for that too.
An example of this might be a brochure update, where the design remains the same, but the text and content all need changing.
You might need some banner stands artworking to an existing style – this too could be done with Toast Time.
For larger projects that require the full creative process, we still prefer to provide a fixed-cost proposal; this is a fixed cost against a fixed spec and provides a more value-added approach.
Once you have your Toast Time, we’ll complete your projects for you and chip away at your pre-brought time in one-minute blocks.
Before we complete any project for you on Toast Time, we’ll advise in advance of an estimated amount of time to complete the work so you can keep track.
We also provide full itemised data on what you’ve used so you can see and track your expenditure and how much time you have left.
