Payment Terms
Your business is greatly appreciated and I pride myself on wonderful client/provider working relationships. In order to maintain that, my policy is as follows:

Once price and project scope are determined: A deposit to begin the project and balance upon final approval of files. Escrow must be funded prior to my beginning work on project.

Minor clean up edits and fixes are included in bids at no additional charge but any additions or changes to original scope of work is subject to additional billing. This includes content changes, reflow of pages, and major design changes.

Milestones and delivery dates are set based on all materials being provided by client as needed for provider to complete the work; any delay in materials or incomplete submissions will most likely result in change of delivery dates to reflect such delay.
