    Registration

    Q: How much does it cost to register?
    A: Nothing. Registration is FREE.
    Q: Do I have to register to use the site?
    A: If you want to create a designer portfolio, you will need to register. Registration is FREE. If you wish to only view designer profiles, you do not need to register. You can browse and search design profiles without registering. However, you should still register, to save time, as the site will remember various preferences for you.
    Pricing and Payment

    Q: How much does it cost an artist to post a design portfolio on DesignerSearch.com?
    A: In short, the service is FREE. We do not charge the artist a single penny... If you do not believe me, see the Pricing section of our web site for details.
    Q: Does DesignerSearch.com charge fashion industry companies a fee to use the designer database?
    A: The answer to that question is "NO". We do not charge fashion companies to utilize our web site. The service is Free, Free, Free.
    Q: Does DesignerSearch.com charge clothing industry companies a fee to contact artists listed on our web site?
    A: The answer to that question is "NO". We do not charge a fee.
    Q: How much does it cost a company to hire a freelance fashion artist?
    A: We have no clue... That is totally an issue to be discussed between the "artist" and the "potential employer". We are simply a match making service. Pricing for services rendered are frankly none of our business.
    Creating and Managing Profiles

    Q: Do I Have to Register to Create a profile and post images of my designs?
    A: Yes. You must be a registered user to create design portfolio. Registration is free.
    Q: What Category Should I Put My Profile In?
    A: You can only select a few categories. Therefore, we suggest that you select categories in which you have the most experience. Select design categories that are most appropriate based on your strengths. If your primary talent is creating hangtag graphics, do not place your self in the handbag designer category... Pick categories based on your talents.
    Q: What region should I put my ad in?
    A: The region you live in. By default the region will be the region you specified on your profile when you registered, but you can change this at any time.
    Q: Are agencies and studios permitted to create profiles?
    A: If your design studio specializes in artwork or design services that are directly related to the fashion industry or textile industry, you are welcome to create a profile on DesignerSearch.com. Please select the appropriate category based on your companies specialties. You can use the "Design Studios" category as your first choice for category selection.
    Q: Will my ad be visible in other regions?
    A: Yes. All ads are visible in any region. The system will, however, always show a person ads in their region first, then ads from outside their region.
    Privacy

    Q: I don't want my name, phone number or email address to appear on your site. What should I do?
    A: You can have all your personal information remain private. Update your personal privacy preferences from the My Account page.
    Q: If all my information is private how can a buyer contact me?
    A: When your design portfolio appears, instead of showing your contact information the following appears: "This artist has chosen to remain private. You may contact this artist via anonymous email by clicking here." The prospective buyer completes an on-line form and the system sends you an email without revealing your information to the prospective buyer.
    Q: What is your privacy policy?
    A: See Privacy Policy for details.
    Regions

    Q: How Do Regions Work?
    A: DesignerSearch.com covers the U.S. All states and any city with a population of 100,000 or more is listed as a region. When you register or create ads, you select a region. When you browse ads, ads in your region will be shown first. When you search for ads, ads in your region will be shown first.
