Graphics Designer/ Artist fees?

hello my name is christopher with Daedalus games. We offer graphics services. Artists prices vary, on a lot of factors. A good fair rate is 50/hr. A typical game costs between 1500-2500
for a board box front back and sides. What you should get out of this is production ready art, a professional artist who knows how to design according to the printing methods, and standards

Ok, I'm new here so I'm responding to all this late.

Does anyone know what would be a ballpark cost for design of the board box, board and a set of cards, let's say 50 unique cards?

Just to give you an idea, I'm having my board created by a professional artist and it will cost $1,000. However, I personally think that is a great price because he will sketch out several different views and spend quite a bit of time working with me to produce the best board. In some ways, I think it's almost too cheap of a price, because overall he expects the process to take about one month. Afterwards, I also have a very cool piece of artwork that we plan on hanging in the house. Hopefully the game will go farther than that though ...

Though the price varies, at GenCON this past week I made contacts with about 5-7 artists. Most of them had a price range of $25-$60 for card sized images.

Cover art was a bit different, at least $300(with a % royalty) all the way up to $3500.

Keep in mind art cost varies, since you/artist can toss in royalties options, and purchasing the rights(or not) to the artwork alters cost.

If I had to guess a cost of box, board and cards as you stated, $4k-$5k.

Not sure this helps much,

I forgot to mention that color also alters the cost, depending on the need for black&white, monochrome or full color images. So depending on your color needs can reduce/increase your cost.
