crowdSPRING (http://www.crowdspring.com) lets you set your own price, so it's as expensive as you want to make it. I don't know what their minimums are.

AndrewG - great choice in your contest!
99designs looks like an interesting site and one I'll consider when I need creative work. I've read about another site - crowdspring.com (Global marketplace for logo design, business card design, graphic design and website design | crowdSPRING) that...
