    I know full websites done by professionals can cost a lot of money but say if I give a designer from here a theme and tell them to move things around a bit so I can put in the images and text, how much should I expect to pay for a small job?

    The reason I need to know is because I get quoted anywhere from $15 to $200.

    I could do it for free if you already have wordpress installed and it's a wordpress theme (I'm feeling extra nice today) :)

    Good web design depends on what you need. Be prepared to pay 20$/hour at least for a good designer.

    So if you want a really good Wordpress site with a lot of custom CSS you will need to pay 500 - 1000$ at least depending on what you want done.

    That is, if it really is a 'small' job. I'm willing to give up an hour to help you out

    It should take you 20 minutes. I'll let you know what it is and then you can decide if you want to.

    Thanks anyway.

    A professional web designer is expensive if you need a special design, but he is worth the money.
    If you don't need a special design look at http://themeforest.net/
    Maybe you will find a website template there.

    Ye that's what I've done. I've got a drag and drop theme but just not technical enough for it. I just need a few things moved around to make it look like the preview on the theme sales page. Doesn't even need to be that good just viewable.

    If you want something done well, just assume it costs a lot.

    Searched for the most simplest, easy to use theme I could find and I have ended up downloading Zerif Lite, which at the moment is very easy to customize and is exactly what I need. Thanks for replies.

    You might want to visit themeforest or enviato market to get a template for approximately $50. After purchased, proceed to BHW Marketplace to hire a freelancer to adjust to your requirements for about $140.

    Hope it helps.
