Project acceptance

At the time of proposal, CreativeTable, Inc. will provide the client with a written project details and fee. This can be in the form of email, printed document or both. A copy of a written project details and fee must be signed and dated by the client to indicate acceptance and should be returned to CreativeTable, Inc. Alternatively, the client may send an official order in reply to the written project details and fee which binds the client to accept CreativeTable, Inc.’s Terms and Conditions. If no documentation is signed it will be assumed that the client is prepared to accept CreativeTable, Inc. project details and fee after work has been commissioned.


Fees and payment

The client will be provided with an invoice prior to project commencement. The client will make a 50% down payment prior to work commencing. The project can be scheduled once the down payment is received by CreativeTable, Inc. The down payment is non-refundable. The remaining 50% is payable to CreativeTable, Inc. within 30 days of project completion and before the original artwork is supplied to the client. Under no circumstances will project artworks or deliverables be released until final payment is cleared.

Fees quoted are based on expertise, value added and time by CreativeTable, Inc. for the project issued. The fee issued by CreativeTable, Inc. will not alter if the project duration is increased on the part of CreativeTable, Inc. If the project duration is lengthened by the client then the fee will rise by an additional 10%.

The fee will not include print costs, web hosting costs, purchase of fonts or stock photography, materials, and extra charges incurred throughout the project duration by third parties, however, CreativeTable, Inc. will source third party quotations for the project as standard and will inform the client of these costs to be agreed to before hiring third parties.

If the project assigned will be extending over a longer period (i.e. 6 months - 1 year), CreativeTable, Inc. may require payments made in monthly installments. The client will be made aware that this could be a possibility at the beginning of the project.

ALTERATIONS
The client agrees that changes required over and above the estimated work or required to be carried out after acceptance of design will be liable to a separate charge. The client also agrees that CreativeTable, Inc. holds no responsibility for any amendments made by any third party, before or after designs aredeveloped and delivered. We recommend that proofs are viewed in the latest available Adobe Reader and this should be downloaded before giving proof approval.

The client shall be responsible to ensure that the content of any artwork is correct, this includes print ready artwork and digital files supplied by third parties and supplied by CreativeTable, Inc. All final printed artwork and digital files must be approved by the client and any errors including typographical and design errors once printed and or developed for digital use are without any liability on the part of CreativeTable, Inc.

CHARGES FOR OTHER SERVICES
Charges for any additional services over and above the estimated design, will become fully payable (100% of the quoted amount) at the time of estimate or quotation acceptance. If a meeting is required before a project is assigned, CreativeTable, Inc. will charge at an hourly rate, which will be made available to the client when requested. If it is decided that no further contact will take place after the initial meeting, then no further charges will be made.

LATE PAYMENT
If the final invoice is not paid within the 30 day period a 5% “delayed payment” fee will be charged. This initial 5% charge will be added upon each recurring 14 day period until the full amount has been received by CreativeTable, Inc.

DEFAULT
An account shall be considered default if it remains unpaid for 30 days from the date of invoice.

Returned payments will incur an additional fee of $100 per payment. CreativeTable, Inc. reserves the right to consider an account to be in default in the event of a returned payment. A processing fee of 5% will be chargeable on all quotes and payments.

By supplying images, text, or any other data to CreativeTable, Inc., the client grants CreativeTable, Inc. permission to use this material freely in the pursuit of the design.

The client agrees to fully indemnify and hold CreativeTable, Inc. free from harm in any and all claims resulting from the client in not having obtained all the required copyright, and/or any other necessary permissions.


Cancellation

If, after project commencement, client communication (face to face, telephone, or email) stops for a period of 30 days, the project can be cancelled, in writing by CreativeTable, Inc., and ownership of all copyrights shall be retained by CreativeTable, Inc. A cancellation fee of 50% of the remainder of agreed unpaid fees will be charged to the client. A new agreement will need to be made for the project to commence if the client wishes to pursue the project in the future.


Confidentiality

The client shall inform CreativeTable, Inc. in writing before the project commences if any portion of any material or information provided by the client or if any portion of the project is confidential.


Indemnity
