Indexes are generally charged by the page. Rates vary depending on the material being indexed. Some of the factors that determine the fee include the number and type of indexes required, the density and subject matter of the material, the intended audience, and the amount of time provided for the project. In general, indexing is charged at the rate of $3.00 - $6.00 per page. Lower and higher rates are sometimes possible depending on specific circumstances. The rate will be set prior to work beginning.
Other fees are possible as well. Minor re-working of the index may be free, at my discretion. Normally that time is charged at an hourly rate of $50 per hour. It is important that final pages are used for indexing, as any changes to the pages require that those pages be re-indexed for an additional per-page fee.
Cancellations by the client after work begins require that the client pay for all work done up until notice of cancellation. Cancellations with less than 48 business hours prior to work beginning will result in a kill fee of 25% of the project cost.
