Payment schedule

The client will make a 50% part payment prior to work commencing. The project will be scheduled once the part payment is received by the designer. The part payment is non-refundable. The remaining 50% is payable to the designer upon completion of the project or depending on the length of the project, will be invoiced on a monthly basis, with the balance due once work is completed. Original artwork will be supplied to the client once full payment is made.

A mutually negotiated payment plan can be discussed for lengthy projects or for ongoing maintenance packages.

All work is electronically tracked to ensure a fair and transparent account of work provided. This includes email, telephone and any other communication that occurs between designer and client.


Third party contracts:

The designer may contract with other creative professionals to provide services such as web development, photography, illustration, packaging & printing. Any third party terms and conditions will include full reproduction rights for the client. Where such contracting adds to the project cost, the client will first be asked for permission to proceed. No project will commence on the assumption that third parties might be required for project completion, unless approved by the client. Such details will be finalised prior to project commencement, unless requested by the client at a later date.

Delayed payment

If, after the project has commenced, subsequent invoices that are not paid within 30 days, a 10% “delayed payment” fee will be charged. This initial 10% figure will be added upon each recurring 30 day period until the full amount has been received by the designer.



If after project commencement client communication (face-to-face, telephone, or email) stops for a period of 180 days, the project can be cancelled, in writing by the designer, and ownership of all copyrights shall be retained by the designer. A cancellation fee for work completed shall be paid by the client, with the fee based on the stage of project completion. The fee will not exceed 100 percent of the total project cost.




The client shall provide the designer with samples of print design that result from the project deliverables. Such samples shall be representative of the highest quality of work produced. The designer may use such copies and samples for publication, exhibition, or other promotional purposes.

The designer shall have the right to photograph all completed designs or installations and shall have the right to use such photographs for publication, exhibition, or other promotional purposes.



The client shall inform the designer in writing before the project commences if any portion of any material or information provided by the client or if any portion of the project is confidential.



The client agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the designer from any and all claims, demands, losses, causes of action, damage, lawsuits, judgments, including legal fees and costs, but only to the extent caused by, arising out of, the work supplied by the designer.



A document containing the above terms and conditions will be supplied via email along with any estimates & the first invoice.

Acceptance should be stated in an email reply or via signature below and returned by post or email.
