The Process, Services and Pricing

The Sazerelli Process

This process highlights the different stages involved with working with Sazerelli Designs. The aim is to be on brief, on budget and on time.

The nitty gritty details

EnquiryIf you are looking for some new prints or patterns, get in touch! You can send me an email at sarah@sazerelli.com. I can give you access to my full portfolio and can discuss your design needs.
BriefIf you don’t want to look through the full portfolio, I can curate a selection of designs that would be suitable for the look and feel of what you require. If you would like to commission a custom design, you can provide more details as to your requirements.
QuoteMy fees vary depending on a number of factors such as the type of license, the length of the license and the exclusivity requirements or if a buyout is required (more below).
ContractDot the i’s and cross the t’s, to ensure both parties are clear on the deliverables and terms. I will provide an agreement with all the details of the terms and conditions.
DesignIf you choose an exisiting design, the scale, colours, colour profile can be adjusted to your product requirements as part of the design fee. If you choose a custom design this is where the whole design process from sketching to final design takes place.
PaymentFull payment is required before the final files are provided.
DeliveryOnce payment has been received, the final files will be shared with you.
ShareIt’s time for the launch. I would love to share the collaboration on socials, blog and my newletters, so if you have any images you would like to share, please do.


Licensing is like renting the artwork. The copyright remains with Sazerelli Designs and a contract is created, defining where (location specific), what for (how many products) and for how long the designs can be used for.

Fully Exclusivethis means the design and motifs are exclusive to your brand/world wide for a defined amount of time.
Partially Exclusivethis means the design and motifs are exclusive to your product category/country for a defined amount of time
Non – Exclusivethis means that the designs can be licensed across multiple brands and categories.

Licensing agreements are set for a specific amount of time, and can be repurchased at the end of a contact if required.


Buyout is when the design and motifs are exclusively purchased for your brand, and are then owned by you. This is obviously at a higher cost that licensing.


Looking for something in particular? You can email sarah@sazerelli.com with some information on what you are looking for including –

  • How many designs are required
  • Specifications – ie size requirements, colour mode, colour limitations
  • Timeframe
  • A description on the type of pattern required and inspiration or references.

From there, I will pull together a quote and a contract and more details around the process, revisions and how the artwork will be delivered. The artwork can be purchased as a licence or buy out.


Pricing is dependant on a number of factors such as:

  • the type or licence (exclusive, non exclusive or buy out)
  • Time frame – how long the license is required. The license starts from the day the contract is signed.
  • Number of different products the design will be used for
  • An up front flat fee or royalties can discussed
