Re: From employee to freelance for the same company. Reply #30 – January 03, 2018, 04:38:03 PM Quote from: Joe on January 03, 2018, 12:32:48 PMI just assume graphic designers make more than prepress people here because they take like 26 weeks of vacation a year it seems. Gotta have money to visit exotic locations around the world that often. Or maybe they were just born into a wealthy family and graphic design makes it look like they have a real job but mainly it is just a hobby. Instead of calling yourself a prepress freelancer call yourself a prepress consultant. They make way more money than freelancers.just updated my linkedin profile!
