Compensation: The client agrees to pay Boardwalk Graphics, LLC 100% of the total project cost before any services are started on. If services are not paid in full (aside from website developments), projects will not be started on and will delay the client’s original turnaround time. If the parameters of the work change, or if it involves more time than estimated, Boardwalk Graphics will inform the client. Boardwalk Graphics is responsible for the payment of all federal, state, and/or local taxes with respect to the services she performs for the client as an independent contractor. The client acknowledges that the designer has the right to change the costs of all services and packages at any given time. The client will not treat Boardwalk Graphics as an employee for any purpose.
Work: Boardwalk Graphics, LLC agrees to produce project materials (the “work”) at the request of the client for fees agreed upon in advance and delivery of the work by an agreed-upon deadline. As long as the client provides the designer with all detailed information, items, images and materials needed to do so within the allotted time frame. Boardwalk Graphics, LLC agrees that she will be the sole author of the work, which will be original work and free of plagiarism.
Process: The client acknowledges that he or she must place their order for a service/project with Boardwalk Graphics, LLC on their website. It is the client’s responsibility to provide the designer with all needed information and items that they are wanting on each product. Once the detailed information is submitted to the designer, the designer will proceed with the next steps. Once payment is submitted to the designer and processed, then the client’s turnaround time will begin. It is the client’s responsibility to submit high quality professional photos to the designer. We do not accept any blurry, low quality photos. If stock photos are needed, we do provide them for an additional $30 fee, which covers all photos needed for the client's project. It is the client’s responsibility to provide Boardwalk Graphics with clear and concise verbiage. Boardwalk Graphics is neither responsible nor liable for any grammatical errors or misspelled words that have been provided and submitted. The client must be sure to double-check any names, titles, phrases, and wording before submitting all information to Boardwalk Graphics.
Revisions: After Boardwalk Graphics, LLC has received all information from the client, she will cooperate with the client in editing and otherwise reviewing the work prior to completion and launch.

(i.e: a typo.) If the client wants to make changes to the overall design, he/she must purchase an entire new design at the market price. Information provided for flyer designs that require me to physically type out the text will result in an additional $30 fee that must be paid prior to the design being released. If a flyer has to be redesigned due to lack of prior information given, it will also result in an additional $30 fee. Once you post your flyer on any social media network, it is not permitted to receive any additional changes or add-ons unless an editing fee of $30 is paid.
