Salary Question for Entry Level Product Artist

Dear all,

What is the ideal salary for entry level product artist working for an advertising company(employees # about 40) located in NYC?
I work about 10~12hrs a day.

Thank you for your respond.



“Production artist,” not product artist.

Don’t know about NYC but in Sacramento, CA you’d be looking at about $12-$15 for entry level. Sr. Production would get up to $25/hr

Higher in NYC – It’s been a while since I did print production, but I would say at least $25 hr or 50k a year. Go to a head hunter/agency if you want to find out what you can get. Take their tests, show them your book/samples and they will tell you what they think you can get.
