Your project is unique and we would be happy to give you a quote or estimate.

The following acts as a rough guide for our Voice-over and Commercial Production work:

Audio Production

Whether it's writing and recording a radio commercial or on-hold telephone prompts, each project is unique so please contact us for details. Please see Web Audio Production for details and examples of our work.


Ricky and Carole are both experienced national radio and TV broadcasters. Jack G is an experienced commercial radio copywriter. They can turn your rough draft, notes, ideas or technical documents into beautifully-written prose which works for the ear rather than the eye.

As each job is unique please ask us for a quote. Please see Copywriting for details and examples of our work.

We believe that only people who have experience of writing for radio or TV (whether it is news bulletins or TV continuity announcements) can really write a great script for your corporate or web video.

There is a huge difference in the skill level required to write a script which is intended to be heard by your client rather than read by them.


Corporate Voiceovers

Our voiceover artists are charged at different rates so we should have someone to suit your budget. For voiceovers for corporate, E-Learning, web videos, multi-media or training videos, the cost of recording a UK Voiceover Artist starts at 350+VAT.

Most voiceover sessions will be charged between 350+VAT and 590+VAT per hour. Our fees depend upon which voice artist you choose and where the audio is to be used. This fee covers up to two thousand spoken words for ONE script, edited to approximately 10 minutes "finished audio", and supplied in the format of your choosing (usually MP3, aiff or wav).

These prices cover the costs to record one script by the voiceover artist, casting, live client direction, studio engineer/voice director, studio fee, editing, QC, de-breathing, file encoding and transfer.

If you would like us to send a voiceover artist to your studio or a third party studio please ask us for a quote.

Amendments to the script after a session has finished will be chargeable. We would encourage you to direct the session (or listen into the recording) via the telephone, Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meets or in person to make sure you are happy with the tone, style and pace of the voiceover recording. This helps us with possible script changes and pronunciations; it also means we provide you a perfect recording in time for you to meet your deadline.

International Voiceover Artists and Child Voiceover Artists are generally at the higher end. Please contact us for details. Please ask if you would like a quote for a larger volume of work or whether your project would involve a usage fee. Please see Voiceovers FAQ for more details.
