Client Responsibility for Graphic Art for Print
Clients must provide the text content for basic company information including names, titles, phone numbers and address, plus additional text content for the message.
If you choose to submit pre-existing items (i.e. photographs, graphics, logos, text, etc), it is the responsibility of the client to submit all items with correct spelling, grammar, and display.
Final artwork is subject to your approval, so completion may depend on timely review and approval of artwork, or requests for changes. Proofs for approval may be uploaded or emailed to you for review and approval, or suggestions for change.
While every attempt is made to create accurate designs without spelling or phone number errors, the client is responsible for proof reading all designs. Online web site text errors are easily corrected, however, errors in printed materials remain the responsibility of the client without exception.
Revision of any project is noted with the project. Any additional revisions will result in additional charges and within reason, so carefully consider your needs up front to avoid added design cost.
The client is responsible for providing web design text content and unique graphics such as a logo or photographs. Custom web graphics to present your corporate image and color scheme are included in the price.
Content and Payment Options
Payment for all paid graphic art services is in advance of beginning your project. Depending on how quickly you provide content or the nature of your project, most designs are completed within 2-3 days for business cards and post cards, 1-2 weeks for other art including brochures and subject to agreements on all other work. Do NOT send payment for any project until we have an agreement in place via email.
50% non-refundable deposit of the total cost must be made before start of project. Balance of design and production costs due prior to releasing final product.
You may pay with cash, check, money order or credit card (via Paypal®)
Make checks payable to: Franklyn Beasley.
Customer Provided Content and Copyright
The client by placing an order for design services unconditionally guarantees that they own the copyright, or have permission from the copyright holder, of any content they furnish including text, graphics, photographs, audio, video, designs, trademarks, or artwork submitted for use in the website, multimedia, or printed marketing material project.
Design services are provided as an independent contractor, and projects are therefore not “work for hire” as would be the case using a direct employee. As the creative design service provider, Codename Studios retains all rights to any original design of graphics, video production, and additional graphic designs created on behalf of the client. Therefore, client rights of ownership are limited to fair use of designs in the original intended use only, whether in print or online. Special written request is available if decision is needed to obtain full ownership of artwork.
For cards, brochures, and web sites including company name, your name, title, phone numbers, addresses, web or email address, and information about your business, must be sent in ASCII text. Standard email uses ASCII, so copy text into the body of an email (not an attachment), and send in this manner.
If you only have a printed version of your content, additional fees may apply to convert it to digital text.
Special Note About Text Content
Photos may be emailed in JPG format only, and must be a minimum of 300 dpi resolution to be used for printing. Do not worry about the size of your photograph because bigger is better. I will resize photographs and the quality will be better if I have a large photo to begin.
Examples You Create
Home computer software programs are most likely done in a graphics program that I don’t own. Due to anti-virus security setups on my computer, I do not accept text or embedded photo attachments in Microsoft Word or any other publishing software. Please, if you have digital art you created make sure the file name ends in .eps, .jpg, or .tif before you send it.
If you have a logo already, it may be emailed in .EPS, .JPG, or .TIF format, and 300 dpi resolution. Web site versions of your logo cannot be used for printing cards or brochures because most are only 72 dpi. However, I can reproduce most logos unless they are extremely unique, so send whatever you have.
QUESTIONS? Timely communication during your graphic art project is necessary, so contact me by email or by phone with any questions.
