How much you could possibly earn depends greatly on where you live.

You can see an average range here:

AIGA|AQUENT SURVEY OF DESIGN SALARIES 2008

There is another graph of salary averages here:

PayScale - Graphic Designer Salaries, Graphic Artist Salary


Keep in mind, these are averages. You could earn a bit more... but more likely you'll earn a little less right out of school.

Right now, you'd be looking in the mid/high 20's to start, don't let those sites fool you.
