Policies and Procedures
A verbal or written quote will be provided to the client before any design work begins. A quote is not a contract and is subject to change without notice. Pricing in a quote can be guaranteed only by placing a deposit to begin work.
A 50% deposit is required before any design work begins. This includes all custom orders, design services, and printing. Event/Wedding planning services require a 25% deposit and are non-refundable.
Payment arrangements can be made after the initial deposit is made on custom orders. Service will not continue if the scheduled payments are not made within 48-hours of the scheduled due date. All deposits will be forfeited. Service will continue if balance is paid in full.
Fees for event planning must be paid based on the payment schedule that is provided. Any payments not made within 48-hours of the scheduled due date will forfeit the contract and all services will not continue unless balance is paid in full.
