Your burning brochure design FAQs, answered.

Everything you need to move to production. Your brochure design will be uploaded in the correct formats Typically this means a production-ready Adobe Photoshop (PSD), Adobe Illustrator (AI), PDF or EPS files, but this will depend on your printing requirements. 

Plus, you’ll get the full legal copyright, so the design will be all yours.
Lots of ideas! If you’re looking for inspiration, explore 99designs for fantastic examples of brochures created by our design community.

Bring as many specifics as you can, too. Include brochure style, dimensions, designs you like, company or event details, product specifics, printing requirements and any other specifications that would affect your design.

The more you give the designers, the better they can design brochures for you!
Yes. If you have any specific images (like a logo or photographs) that need to be included with your brochure, please submit them to designers with your brief.

Unless you request otherwise, your designer may also use stock images (purchased from a third party) in your design. If a designer uses stock art in a design, they’ll tell you which images they are and use watermarked versions of them in their entries. Once you choose the winning design, you’ll need to purchase the stock art and provide it to the winning designer so they can complete the design.
Your custom brochure contest includes one winning brochure. If you need a second brochure for a different company, product or event, you have a few options. You can award multiple winners in your contest. You can run a second contest. Or you can start a 1-to-1 Project with your winning designer to create the additional assets.
Absolutely (and we love it when that happens)! When your brochure design contest has finished, you can start a 1-to-1 project with your winning designer.
On 99designs, designers agree to upload only original artwork, so each designer owns the rights to their design submissions until you choose your contest’s winner. During the design handover stage, the designer agrees to transfer the rights, and you become the owner of the copyright of that brochure design.
We guarantee that you’ll get a great brochure design at any pricing level, but our higher-priced packages give you more design options and better support.

Here’s how it works: When you pay more, the prize for the winning designer is bigger, too. More experienced designers participate in your contest, so you get more high-quality designs to choose from. More options means additional time that's needed to review your designs. That’s why our Gold and Platinum packages offer dedicated managers to help streamline that process by writing creative briefs and giving your designers feedback.

When selecting your brochure contest package, think about how much time you’ll have and what experience you have writing briefs and working with designers. If you're still unsure, contact us for a design consultation.
Choose “Make your contest private” from the Contest options section before you launch your brochure contest. This will prohibit designers from using their designs elsewhere, and your contest will be unsearchable on the web.

This will automatically attach a standard NDA template to your brochure contest. If you prefer, you can also upload your own NDA.
We offer a 100% money-back guarantee within 60 days of payment on all brochure design contests except those with a guaranteed prize and those that have entered the Final Round. You can also call us anytime to help you rewrite your brief, reopen your project to ensure you get a good result, and help you pick a winning design. Remember, if we refund your brochure contest, you aren’t legally entitled to use any of the designs submitted to your contest.
