For all design projects to begin your initial deposit must be paid as outlined in your quote. Once the project has been started your initial deposit is NON REFUNDABLE. This is not negotiable. If you decide to change the specs of your project Skyfall Media is not responsible for revising it for free. Additional design time and labor will also be revised and added onto the invoice. You would be notified in advance if this is the case. Once a project has been designed in full according to the agreed upon project, no refunds are given after design has been approved.
* Fees are due & payable on the following schedule: 50% deposit, 50% upon completion for projects over $200.00. 100% deposit is due for projects under $200.00.
Payment in FULL is due before final project is delivered.
Any job that requires being pushed ahead of regularly scheduled jobs for emergency purposes or unexpected deadlines will have an automatic rush fee of 20% added on top of your quoted price.
Either party may terminate design contract upon giving written notice to the other. Upon termination, Skyfall Media may retain any initial deposit/payments & the Client shall pay for all hours expended on the project up to the date of termination.
Once your deposit has been made based on the quote or invoice you received, Skyfall Media will provide you with an estimated turnaround time. This turnaround time is from the date Skyfall Media has obtained all content from you. This includes any images you would like included, content text, logos, etc. Without content from you, the design job can not be fully understood or designed out. Any delay in the completion of the project due to actions or negligence of Client, transportation delays, illness, or circumstances outside the control of Skyfall Media may alter the delivery date. Skyfall Media will make reasonable effort to notify Client of any delays to the estimated delivery date as soon as possible.
If you decide to take a break (two weeks or more) from the project without informing Skyfall Media, your project will be rescheduled after all current in progress work in completed. You will also then need to pay the entire project fee upfront and within 5 business days of resuming the project again. I will do my best to work you back into the schedule as time permits but please be courteous and notify Skyfall Media of unexpected events as they come up.
