As for project working hours it's tough to say how you should calculate it for yourself. As you already noted, it's a different matter for everyone. It also depends on how familiar you are...

Direct Mail Case Study

This one comes from my personal archive. It's an abridged case study from a direct mail piece I did for a local house painter about 9 years ago. Looking back on it now there's a few thing I would do different. But it got an 8% response rate on an EDDM (Every Door Direct Mail) piece to only 500 resid...
