  • Non refundable deposits are taken prior to commencing desgin work on LOGOS.

  • The outstanding graphic design fee on logos is due when the final proof is agreed. An invoice will be sent and payment will need to be made within 7 days.

  • Once final payment is received I will release the artwork to you for you to use as you wish.

​​

Brochures | Flyers | Business Cards | Signs | Banners | Vouchers | Price Lists | Any other design work

 

Full payment is required on these projects prior to design work commencing. This includes a reasonable amount of changes and tweaks to make it perfect for you. Anything beyond this may incur extra charges. I will always keep you up to date via email if I feel you may incur extra charges.

 

Logos and All Graphic Design Projects

 

Any printing costs are quoted separately to design fees.

If you wish for me to arrange printing, I use several options for the best deals I can find. I use high quality luxury printers or budget printers depending on your requirements. My artwork is of the highest standard but I take no responsiblity for printing quality or time it takes to be printed.

 

It is your responsibility to check spelling and grammar.

Timescales on creating your designs all vary. This can depend on the quantity of work, your individual requirements and how long it takes for you to provide me with all the information needed to go forward. We can discuss this at our consultation.

If the project goes on longer than anticipated a half way fee may apply, which will in turn lower the final fee.

If during the design process you have additional requirements, this will incur additional fees.

I am happy to make a 'reasonable' amount of tweaks to your designs. If this goes above 5 small changes, there may be additional charges. I will always keep you informed every step of the way. First proofs and drafts will be sent to you for approval / changes. You will be given ample opportunity to give me your feedback / changes and tweaks. Once this happens & payment is up to date, the designs are yours to keep - if you decide after this time you would like further changes, small edit fees will apply.

 

The Client will have 5 business days to review and approve each step. At the end of said time, if no answer has been given, the work will be considered approved, and the web designer will continue their work.
