Full payment is required upon receipt of invoices unless otherwise arranged prior to start of work. Ongoing accounts will be invoiced monthly.

Source files are not included in this purchase, for example fla (Flash source files), psp (Photoshop source files), and any other audio or visual source files, unless copyright release and ownership transfer is specifically arranged.
There is a 15 minute minimum charge for all logged work. Conference and consulting time spent discussing your project, in person or by phone, is charged at our normal hourly rate.
There is a 1.5% interest fee per month charged on all balances not paid within 30 days of billing, unless credit has been arranged in advance. There is a $15 service charge on all returned checks.
We will be glad to provide an estimate for your job. In most cases, however, your invoiced charges will be based on the actual time spent on your job.
A deposit is required for all jobs with an estimate over $100. Amount of deposit is based on estimate and production costs for your project.
Normal delivery time on small jobs is 5-7 work days. Any jobs specifically requesting rush service will be done in 1 – 2 days when possible and the time will be charged at standard rates plus 15% for rush service.
Proofreading and Content Responsibility
You the client are responsible for inspecting and approving the final copy.

Responsibility for inadvertent errors or omissions is entirely yours. You are the final inspector of your project.
