Most desktop publishers I know in the Houston area charge by the page,
and I've heard anywhere from $35 to $75 per 8 1/2 X 11 in. page,
turnkey. Kind of depends on how much color and how difficult the
layout is, whether the scans are provided, etc. You will have to judge
what is appropriate for your area and your client. I wouldn't drop my
prices too much because of inexperience--it will only take one or two
issues and you'll know the design and procedures well enough.

Good luck,
