I've been doing graphic design for close to 12 years now. My wife and I used to own a screen printing business which is where my skills really sharpened. I've designed for probably 100's of bands, schools, business, events..

I might work for gear, guns.. etc

I will require Half payment UP FRONT (non refundable). This ensures that i am not working for free. It also weeds out the tire kickers and scammers.
