Facility Upgrades & Expansion

Our production force has grown to double the size since a year ago. In addition to Rebecca & Jovan (Graphic Designer & Web Developer, respectively) we now have Cindy-Lynn (Graphic Designer) and Bruno Fontanella (Web Developer) to help you with your needs. Our office has also been significantly renovated with new computers, new monitors & mounts, and of course more workstations to accommodate the larger workforce.

FAQs:

Q: When was the last price change?
A: 2014 was our last rate change to our labour rates, while monthly fees have remained the same since 2012.

Q: Does the price change have any relation to USD/CAD exchange rate?
A: Partially yes. Costs of computers as well as the web based software we use to keep ourselves organized has gone up due to the weakened Canadian Dollar.

Q: I’ve became a subscriber very recently (less than 6 months ago) so it seems a bit soon to raise my prices, no?
A: While our labour rates will increase for everybody at the same time, we can definitely keep your monthly fees the same for the first six months of your subscription. We need you to email us your domain and the date of your first subscription invoice or the invoice number (if it’s less than 6 months ago) so we can freeze the price until the 6th monthly fee point.

Q: When’s the cut-off for design of marketing material and/or new website customization at the old rate?
A: Any orders placed on or before (confirmed by email to design@brixwork.com) April 18th (Monday) can be processed under the current rates, since we operate on a 1 business day turn-around to start on inbound inquiries. Our billing cut-off is April 20th, after which point the new labour rates will become effective.

If you have any questions please email us at support@brixwork.com and we will be happy to answer them.
