PRODUCTION

The Client will sign off on a digital proof prior to print production and always be given the opportunity to be on press when any item goes to print and a larger quantity run. However, should The Client not be present the Designer will make any necessary adjustments on press on behalf of the client and not be held responsible for the quality of the final printed piece. All printing, manufacturing, and prototyping must be estimated separately and paid directly from The Client.

The remaining 50% of the project cost is to be paid upon final delivery of all agreed items. A cancelation fee will be applied if the project is ended by the client before all items have been delivered - this fee is 25% of the total project cost.
