    Features comparison

    We highlight the main differences between Kimp.io and Penji

    Ease of use

    When registering for Kimp.io, you will have to wait a few moments while your access to the Trello is set up. After that, everything will happen on Trello, including communication and file exchanges. Moreover, the graphic designs will be sent to you via Google Drive links.

     

    Also, unlike Kimp.io, Penji has its own platform for communicating and exchanging files. This makes it much easier to view the files created and to centralize everything.

    Features

    In term of Design scope, Penji is really well above Kimp.io. They can create Web templates in PSD, so it can be suitable for people using WordPress and wanting a particular WordPress theme design.

     

    Moreover, Kimp.io does not only give you access to a single dedicated designer but to a team of 3 designers plus a dedicated project manager!

     

    Penji offers for only a $100 bucks per month more, custom illustrations such as hand-draw designs

    Design Quality

    Regarding their portfolio we can see that the quality and beauty of the designs is equal. It’s rather difficult to decide between them but if we had to give a winner, we would say that Penji wins. But it’s all about taste and color, maybe you think Kimp.io is better.

    Anyway as long as they are using stock photos as a basis for their designs, logically the designs are not ugly from the start.

    Turnaround

    In both cases they are tied. They cannot be separated and this can vary according to the designs and requests.

    They usually deliver the designs within 1 or 2 business days.

    Winner: Both

    Customer support

    Penji uses a live chat system for their support, this allows for ease of use and great efficiency. Their customer support team is also available 24/7!

    Concerning Kimp.io, everything happens on Trello, so messages are inserted in the tasks created on Trello. Plus, they don’t work during weekend so their customer support is only 24/5.

    Automation

    Penji doesn’t integrate any automation such as Zapier or Slack. With Kimp.io you can integrate the possibility of automating the process with Zapier. So you will be able to create Zap to automate as you wish. In addition, with the Slack add-on on Kimp.io, you can improve communication and exchanges with your project manager.

    Pricing comparison

    Kimp.io pricing

    Penji pricing

    Kimp.io pricing

    Kimp.io has one and only one price. It is however possible to take some add-ons for slack access or advanced graphics.

    Kimp.io offers a real Free trial of 7 days. That means you don’t have to pay during 7 days. But you can’t receive the native source files and the graphic design will have a watermark.

    Penji doesn’t offer a Free Trial but give you a 15 day 100% money back guarantee, so if you don’t like it, you can ask for a refund.

    Penji gives you the choice to subscribe monthly or annualy so, it can be $50/month cheaper if you subscribe to Penji annually.

     

    Plus, if we compare the features of the Team plan of Penji at $479/month only, the equivalent with Kimp.io will costs you $389 + $299 = $688/month

    Finally, Penji is really cheaper than Kimp.io.

      I expected a much better result during my trial period.
      I had asked for 1 logo, but that was not part of the elements supported for the trial period.
      I then asked for a banner, I gave all the information I needed to make the project with examples. The delivery time was 72 hours.
      The result was average, the graphic elements come from Adobe library, there is no creativity, I could do the same work myself without any problem in 30 minutes.
      Finally I cancelled my trial period, considering a subscription was simply impossible given the slowness and the service obtained during the trial.
