    Default Coffee Posters Needed - Paying Cash & Beans

    Opening a small coffee shop out in the Carolina mountains serving single origin coffee. I roast all the coffee myself in small batches. I'm looking for a designer to do a series of 4 posters helping educate the fine folks that visit our shop on our process of making really good coffee.

    Each poster would focus on one element of the process.

    One poster would be on how we source single-origin beans for the best taste.

    Another would be on our pour-over method of brewing.

    Another on how we filter our water.

    You get the idea.

    Each poster would be no more than 3 colors.

    We're a small shop so I don't have a huge budget. That being said I'd actually prefer the posters to have an air of simplicity to them.

    You can quote me what you think is fair.

    We will pay you for the work, plus you can use in your port, and we'll send you a few lbs of some really good coffee as well.

    Shop opens in a month, so hoping to get this done in the next 3 wks here.

    PM me a rate for all 4 posters and a link to any design work you've done.

    I don't think a screenprinted poster is what you are looking for... you seem to be looking for a one off print for each... screenprint posters don't make sense if you are only making one... your costs would be huge... to set up, burn and print a single poster in 3 colours is crazy... to put it your terms it would be like making a pot of coffee one bean at a time...

    you are already working on a small budget... I suggest paying someone to design them then paying to have them digitally printed at a local kinkos type print shop with a large format printer...

    Thanks dspring, I agree.

    What we're planning on doing is having them printed on foamcore or hard plastic, and then possibly printing them down the line as limited edition prints.

    Designwise I'd like them to be as close to an actual gig poster as possible, if that makes sense.

    That's funny... And not what we're after at all

    The order quantity small, using digital print is cheap than offset printing. I think it is banner printing.

    Hey, I'm a illustrator/designer in Raleigh NC. I think I can help.
    Send me an email and we can get started.

    I have an idea for a different aesthetic than my usual illustrations that would work for you.
