We are currently designing for the Blogger & WordPress Platforms
PAYMENT IN FULL REQUIRED UPFRONT
We accept payments through Paypal. Upon submitting your order you will receive an confirmation email of your order with an invoice for the total amount due. Total amount due must be received through PayPal BEFORE design work can begin on your order.
Blog designs from the start of design work to the actual installation varies with each client and their customization needs. On average completion of design can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks. This will vary based on client communication, revisions required and the amount of customization. Print Designs vary from project to project- please speak with designer regarding production time.
Should you require my services to fix or troubleshoot and I am unable to resolve the issue your money will be refunded via Paypal minus a $25 assessment fee.
It is the client’s responsibility to back up all HTML Widgets and the original blog template. We are not responsible for loss of data. It is also the clients responsibility to add content to all pages in their blogs and websites. Should you want our assistance with adding content it will be at our hourly rate of $40 hour (minimum 1 hour charge).
CONCEPTS & REVISIONS
We will provide an initial concept for your review within 48-72 hours of starting design process. I will be happy to supply you with up to 2 alternate concepts if you do not initially like the first concept. Once approval for a concept has been given we will continue to refine the approved design and submit the client a first rough draft. I will provide up to 3 sets of minor revisions of the design to achieve the aesthetic desired. Please note that if you require more than the 3 set of minor revisions you will incur my hourly fee of $40/hr.
PROJECTS I WILL NOT ACCEPT
As a web & graphic designer I choose to only take on projects that are of a wholesome nature and that reflect a positive healthy message.
Clients will receive communication from the designer via email. Reply emails will be returned in a prompt and timely manner. It is the client’s responsibility to answer emails in a timely manner as to not hold up the design process. Should a client not respond to our email within a 48 hour period the client’s work will be placed on hold and work will begin on the next design on our wait list.
We request for clients to limit and condense the amount of emails sent to us with details regarding edits, changes and requests. We ask this so as to keep details from getting lost.
Please note that my business hours are Tuesday – Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. We are closed for all legal holidays. Please understand that emails will not be answered outside of my business hours as those hours are dedicated to my family and other outside responsibilities. Thank you for understanding!
