Rush: This is anything that is less than 48 hours. If you send me a transcript on Tuesday at 2 p.m. and want it back by Thursday at 10 a.m., you will be charged the rush rate. This rate also includes any work over the weekend; for example, 2 p.m. on Friday to 10 a.m. on Monday would still be considered rush. This rate also includes any holidays, and I reserve the right to decline any jobs that may need to be done over a holiday.

Messy pages: I reserve the right to charge a fee of $.10 per page if there are a large number of errors on each page. Obviously, I don’t expect the transcript to be perfect, but the fewer basic mistakes there are, the easier it will be for me to catch the bigger errors, which is what both of us want!

“Drop Everything and Read” Rate: This is anything needed back as soon as possible. The exact length of time for turnaround will vary depending on the length of the transcript.

More than 25 lines per page: This is determined by dividing the rate by the normal number of lines and then multiplying that by the number of the lines in a transcript. For example, a transcript for normal turnaround that was 28 lines a page would be $.45/page. ($.40 divided by 25 equals .016. Multiply that by 28 to get $.45)

If you know you are going to have a Rush/Daily job, please let me know as soon as you know to check if I’m available, which I most likely will be.

Also, for larger jobs (at least 150 pages), please send me the job in chunks as you are working on the job. This will allow me to be working on some pages while you are finishing. As a result, I will be able to get you the completed job more quickly!
