Pricing:
Projects vary in length and the services needed to produce it. There are a number of things that go into determining the overall cost. Please call or email and we'll provide a free quote and answer questions.


How Quickly Can a Recording Be Done?:
A reasonable amount of advance time is great, however, we're often able to complete shorter recordings within 1 business day or take care of urgent needs. Lengthy projects will take us longer. Check with us for scheduling and availability and we'll give you a completion estimate.


if You Need Music in a Production:
Audio recordings can be produced with music underneath a narrative or voiceover. We offer samples to choose from when adding music to a production. Music is copyrighted and we handle all of the licensing agreements plus give you a broad range of music selections to fit any style or project.


How Do I Get My Completed Recording?
Audio recordings can be delivered in a variety of sound files (mp3, wav, etc.) by email, or FTP or third party download link.

Female Voice Narration Services:
Our female voice talent, Kerry, is in-house voice for narration projects. You can listen to her narration demos here. Kerry's professional and flexible narration styles are a client favorite for corporate presentations, eLearning and training, commercials, phone recordings and multimedia-video communications. For phone recordings, Kerry is our female voice. We also have a male announcer and a Spanish and British announcer for these recordings.


A few Words About Your Script:
When your script is done, it helps to read it out loud and note the length of time it takes you to read the entire script at the preferred pacing. This gives you an idea of how long your script actually is. Be sure to read it aloud. Reading silently is normally much quicker than the spoken word.

Also, be sure to note pronunciations like foreign words or acronyms. If you abbreviate something - it will be narrated as the abbreviation provided in the script, so it's best to spell things out if that's your preference for how we record or say it. Samegoes with numbers - like 3842 - would you like it read as "thirty-eight, forty-two" or each number spoken separately?

As you put your script together, take into consideration information customers, product users or students will need and want to know. Your website, social media pages, sales brochures and pamphlets can provide a great deal of information about your products and services. Remember, potential customers may need information such as a physical address, phone number, store location(s), email address and web site address.


Payment for Services
All production services require payment at the time they are rendered and before the delivery of the completed file(s). We always correct any errors on our part asap and at no charge. Any additions, revisions or script changes once a project has been recorded would be an additional charge commensurate with the amount of revising to be done. We'll check to insure that scripts are "approved" for recording before beginning a project. We appreciate clarity in the instructions. Please feel free to provide information that is important to you regarding any aspect of the recording. We may ask a lot of questions! It just means we want to get it right from the get-go and create a finished product that is right on target.
