When it comes to anything “graphic design,” most business owners shriek in horror at the thought of spending money on classy brochures. But what if I told you about a magical land where graphic designers bid for YOUR design project? Well, just call me a magician, because the site is called 99designs.com - http://99designs.com/ .

99Designs.com is a marketplace of sorts where those in need of design skills post up their projects including the description, colors, type, and finally, their budgets. Designers from all around the world submit their finished products… yes, their FINISHED products… before you ever drop  a dime. The job poster (you) chooses their favorite design, and then pays off the designer. You can have 99Design.com design just about anything from logos to mobile apps. Check some examples here:

  • Logo design - http://99designs.com/logo-design
  • Business card design - http://99designs.com/business-card-design
  • T-shirt design - http://99designs.com/t-shirt-design

99Designs functions as crowd sourcing website (if you have experience with Kickstarter - http://www.kickstarter.com/ , you know the power of crowd sourcing) where the crowd is a room full of talented designers trying to win a few bucks from you. Everyone benefits. You get quality designs within your budget, the designers get paid for quality work, and the circle of design life continues. We’re all trying to save a few bucks, and the property restoration industry is no different.

Whether you need new restoration marketing pamphlets for that upcoming expo (isn’t there always an upcoming expo?!) or new shnazzy business cards, or the cover of your latest “property restoration tips from a guru” book cover, 99designs.com is a pretty sweet place to start. Go forth and have awesome graphic design!
