As you may know, productions have radically different requirements regarding legal clearances. The very definition of “cleared” can be a tough nut to crack. There is simply no “one size fits all.”
We have a great deal of experience dealing with every kind of production, and should be able to help you navigate through this increasingly challenging topic. Be pro-active and don’t make assumptions: If you are going to be using our graphics in a featured manner, save yourself future headaches and ask us about details at the beginning. In these instances, we have found that information and time is key to a smooth experience. We will work with you to satisfy even the most stringent requirements. In many cases, we will gladly sign off on your company’s release form, as long as the items you’re purchasing are not a recreation or a look-alike. By signing your materials release, HPR indemnifies you against any 3rd party claims.
We make every effort not to infringe on existing copyrights or trademarks. Photographs and illustrations are licensed from stock agencies or created by us. Some of our graphics bear a resemblance to real product, or may even be actual recreations. They have been created because of customer demand, under a specific set of circumstances. Usage of those items can only be determined by your production’s legal department.
Fabrication pricing guidelines
The prices below serve as a general guideline to fabrication costs of our stock graphics. Art set-up fees to modify, customize or set up client artwork for printing, start at $30. Custom design fees depend on complexity of the request. As an example, a custom book or magazine cover would typically run $200-$400.
Due to the highly specialized nature of our work, clients should always contact us first to obtain a firm quote.
NOTE: Prices are for domestic orders, in US dollars. International clients should contact us first to confirm pricing.

Basic turn-around times
HPR Graphics works on a first-come/first-serve basis, so exact turnarounds are largely dependent on current workload. This includes both stock and custom props. Your best bet is to contact us as soon as you know your schedule. If you give us a little heads-up, we can make sure stock items will be available when you walk through the door. If you have challenging time or budgetary hurdles to overcome, just give us a call. We will always do our best to try and accommodate you.
Custom design work or fabrication typically requires a minimum of 2 business days or longer, depending on volume.
Custom design work or fabrication with less than 1 business day’s notice is likely to incur rush fees.
Ordering for clients outside of the Los Angeles area
