These terms and conditions are applicable to all Design work projects that are undertaken by The Bold Circle (“The Supplier“).
The Client’s signature below the proposal or payment of an upfront fee constitutes agreement to and acceptance of these Terms and Conditions. Payment online is an acceptance of our terms and conditions.
Our quote to you is estimated based on the brief that we receive from you. Once we have all the relevant information, we may need to re-quote if the work amounts to more that we understood at brief stage. If, during the process of design, the nature or size of the job changes, we will need to either re-quote or charge for additional time at our hourly rate of R500. All prices quoted are valid for 30 days and will need to be reconfirmed after this time, unless otherwise stated.
3) Upfront invoice
On acceptance of our quote, you will be invoiced for an upfront payment of 50% of all work. This will need to be paid within five working days of date of invoice. Work will commence as soon as we have received this deposit.
4) Balance invoice
On completion and approval of the work, you will be invoiced the balance.
This covers the indicated number of studio hours and design development options. Further design work will be charged at our hourly rate.
6) Print-ready Artwork
Preparing final approved design/layout for print. This covers the indicated number of studio hours but must be confirmed on view of final approved design. A repro-ready PDF is then supplied to the printer.
7) Client Corrections
You may like to make a number of corrections or additional changes to design and text once design or print-ready artwork has been completed. Please allow for the indicated number of studio hours in your budget. If these are not used, they will not be charged for.
8) Copywriting, editing and proofreading
The cost for copywriting, editing or proofreading needs to be taken into account and is not included in our design fee. You may provide your own copy and do your own proofreading if preferred.
9) Image hire and photography
Often, during the design process, additional or alternate images are required or suggested. Image hire is an additional cost and we have a good image hire source (Stock Image License vary between R200 to R700, cost per stock image includes research and basic editing). You may provide your own images if preferred.
Print costs are not included in the design fee and will be quoted separately. You may use your own printer if preferred but we will not be able to take responsibility for any errors or lack in quality on the final print job.
All work should be completed within four to six weeks of your 50% upfront payment. Should the completion of work be delayed due to any hold-up from the client’s side, the balance outstanding on your account will be invoiced after six weeks.
12) Overdue invoices
Artwork will not be handed over to client or to printer if there are any payments overdue.
