When it comes to design, print is, hands down, the most popular medium. Just think of how many things you can design for print; from marketing brochures to flyers, book covers to posters, advertising inserts to informational pamphlets…the sky is the limit.

But designing for print is a tricky beast. You need to understand how your design is going to print, how colors are going to translate from the screen to the page, how to layout the design so it prints correctly…there’s a lot to consider. And that’s why you need a professional.

Working with a top designer can make all the difference when developing designs for print. Here are our picks for the best freelance print designers for hire right now:

How did we choose these as the top print designers?

We know it’s crucial to nail your print design from the get-go (who wants to waste a bunch of time, energy and cash printing something that’s not going to work?!). And the key to nailing that design is finding the right designer—which is why we take our job of helping you find that designer very seriously. Here are the components we looked at when choosing designers for this list:

1. Design quality

by jestyr37

When a new designer joins the 99designs platform, one of the experts from our team goes through their portfolio and evaluates the conceptual thought, technical execution and knowledge of design principles evident in their work. Once they’ve completed their evaluation, they then assign the designer one of three levels:

  • Top Level
  • Mid Level
  • Entry Level

These levels are displayed right on every designer’s portfolio, so you can easily see if you’re working with someone with lots of experience or someone that’s an up-and-coming talent.

2. Print design experience

Running a marathon and competing in a 400m dash both require a ton of training, skill, and experience, but most runners specialize in one or the other—not both. It’s the same thing with design; a designer who’s great at creating logos isn’t necessarily going to be the right designer to bring your print ideas to life. So, in addition to looking at overall quality, we specifically vetted each designer on this list to make sure they had specialized experience with print design.

3. Professionalism

Of course you want someone with design skills, but you also want someone who’s a professional—and that means a print designer who communicates with you throughout the process, hits deadlines, and is all-around good to work with. We took past customer experiences into account to make sure every print designer on this list isn’t just a great designer, but a true professional.
