The quotation contains all the information and terms and conditions you need to know about so that our working relationship and relevant projects run smoothly.

We want to deliver quality work to all our clients. The timeline helps us do that. And it helps YOU to supply the information we need in time. By sticking to the timeline, we can ensure our focused attention to the work we're doing for you. Delays impact each stage of the production line and could have a cost impact.
In most cases, we can accommodate content and design changes, but it might have an impact on the schedule and cost.
We want you to enjoy working with us and have projects run smoothly. The quotation gives you all the vital information to ensure that we're on the same page and have the same expectations.
When you contact us about a potential project, one of the things we take into account is our available time. We want to deliver high-quality work to all our clients, and the project may include supplementary services and products with their own cost. After 30 days, we need to relook at our schedule, as well as our service providers’ availability and the cost of supplementary services and products.
The reality is this: If you said you wanted a small entry-level vehicle (and we've quoted you for one) but later on it becomes clear you're actually looking for a minivan as well as an SUV, we unfortunately can't give you what you want at the same price.
We usually require a deposit of 50% of the cost when you accept the quote and the rest when we finish the project. For larger projects, we could agree on progress invoices.
Let's get this project running! Your time is valuable, and so is ours. If we haven't heard from you within three months, you'll forfeit 50% of the deposit and we'll have to start the process from scratch.
Information and images
We keep all the information we got during the course of the project that is not in the public domain in the strictest of confidence.
High-resolution images ensure that pictures do not appear pixellated in printed format. Even if it looks fine on your screen, it will not give a nice crisp image when printed if the quality of the image is low.
Right-click on the image and check its size under “Properties” in the drop-down list. Our rough guide is that images smaller than 1 MB (1 000 KB) are of low quality and will not be suitable for printing.
The final concept belongs to us until you've paid in full. After you've paid, it's yours. We retain the right to display your logo on our communication and marketing material to show that we've done work for you.
