What's about samples?


#1

Are you people are requesting for samples???


#2

No… (20 char)


#3

If I’d hire someone to do some graphics and they haven’t linked any portfolio links, assuming that their gig description and/or image are rather vague or incomplete, I’d definitely ask for a sample of their portfolio. But if a gig description and image are properly set up, I wouldn’t ask for samples. Although buyers ask me all the time :unamused:


#4

I don not like to do samples, when asking I say pay for it. But in this time, maybe I will do a sample for start…


#5

I’d say it all depends on the niche… in some cases, sending a sample is as easy as sending a ready-made PDF or something like that, while in other cases it is necessary to pay upfront even for a sample.


#6

Watermark your samples, señorita! If you want to send them!


#7

I don’t know, I think if the samples are paid I will be more motivated than if not. It is for a Book. I don’t know if I will win something with watermarking the design. But Thanks!


#8

Then create a Gig:

I will give you a sample for $5

So people can order there.

Importante:
But watermark them anyway!!!

Hasta la vista!

Yes… I am thinking on that…:eyeglasses:

#11

Yes… But even if it is a book of 60 pages? I’d sent a custom offer… We will see…

I’m reading the watermark tip so often, but I´ve seen a couple of Fiverr gigs that promise to get rid of watermarks - can they really, or is that a scam insofar that it will still be possible to see that there was a watermark once (not that I´d be sorry for people ordering such a gig if it is, as I don´t think there are many legit reasons to get someone to remove specifically and literally watermarks)?


#13

You are right! and I think in the majority of the case it is possible to get out the watermark…


#14

Oh I want to see who will be able to erase mine then…

Note:
Everything under 50dpi and watermarked will not be worth to work on, no matter how good you are, because the amount of time needed is way higher as the $$ they could win by taking the watermark away…
If you learn how to watermark your own works there is no risk…

But that’s something to talk about in another thread…


#15

sample must be just one page or one images:grinning:
