Payment and Agreement Information: Services
*CA residents, California current tax rate is applied unless you have a Resale No. let me know and I’ll send you the form to fill out and fax back to me. Additions / extra charges will be added in final Invoice if applicable. Minimum time for any project is seven week-days, a rush is charged for any project requested faster than the minimum for it’s type of project. TBD indicates “to be determined” and therefore, estimate amount might change depending on what is to be done. All amounts in USD.
Over the years and many projects these are the items most often of concern for you and me…so, I’ve written them up and all is open to discussion if not clear and adjustable before project starts based on individual circumstances.
—At the end of the project (COMPANY) will supply the client with a link for the zip of all files used in project for download from server to be backed up by client to CDs. Client agrees to send (COMPANY)) one copy of printed book for (COMPANY) files and releases use of book design to (COMPANY) for use in (COMPANY) promotional materials and website. If (COMPANY) agrees, credit for her design will appear on the copyright page and reflect what part of the project was her’s. Book, Cover, or Interior Design company website
Any estimates requested are good for at least 30 days from date given. Price quoted applies only if project proceeds on a continuous basis, no stops or put-offs. Although this is rare I need to mention it, once project begins, any delays not mentioned may result in additional charges. If a project is to be put on hold, the full amount is to be paid and when client returns, project will be finished and any outstanding additional charges will be billed at the end of the project.
The client understands and agrees that their project cannot be accomplished without their involvement and they will do their best and participate in creative discussion, and proof as necessary to help move project to speedy completion so any deadlines are met. A base time to allow from the time all material is received for basic cover is 7-10 weekdays, and for interior allow 2-5+ weeks (does not include weekends). When cover and interior are done at the same time allow 2-5 weeks. Each project is different and time to allow is determined by what your project needs, we’ll discuss your deadline and move towards it. There might be an additional charge if the following occur: creating a series look for the cover; one creative discussion and photo guidance is included, if client changes their mind and a second discussion plus photo guidance is needed; the interior is guestimated (seen or not and there is a 100 page min price) once into the project if the text, lists, etc. is more extensive than originally observed and stated formatting requirements; if once the manuscript is formatted client decides to reformat to a different page count, the greater page count is charged and a reformat charge is added; proofs beyond the two included; photoshop of images.
— Payment (in USD) is 50% deposit to begin and 50% plus any additional charges are due upon completion unless project being done begins to exceed estimated amount, then an in-between payment may be requested. Consulting is paid by the hour in advance. Once final payment is received files will be sent. All Invoices are due upon receipt.
Please note there will be additional charges during project if I do any photoshop of images and if there are proof changes beyond the two included and will be billed at the end $150 per hour min and amount may be unknown until project is done. Photo retouching priced based on what is to be done and when an image will need photoshop there is an additional charge added for that. Some additional charges might be: covers – proofs beyond the two included, additional photos beyond the one included and ones used to create a blending count in this; on interiors–multiple text insertions after formatting has been started and proofs/corrections beyond the two included (not more than twenty-five changes, any additional beyond the twenty-five are charged for) multiple photos / graphs or charts, placement of text box pull-outs. Basically, know that there will be additional charges if 1. photoshop of images and 2. multiple proofs for cover or interior beyond the two included. All interior proof changes are to be submitted noted clearly on hard copy and mailed or faxed. If we have a creative discussion and you don’t begin the process within 1 month and we need to have another conversation—there might be an additional charge for this time. Client certifies they own the copyrights to, or have permission to use, any copy/manuscript, concept and images supplied. NOTE: if I need to hold the cover project, once completed except for the back and/or spine size, for more than 10 days, or if you need to use the image for marketing, I need full payment before I release any project files.
