Final cost subject to change for reasons such as: 
  1. Change of project scope 
  2. Incomplete or insufficient information 
  3. Additional round of revisions exceeding three 

Full payment is due upon receipt of nal deliverables. Upon receipt of deliverables, the job is considered complete and the client is responsible for print delivery and submission to media outlets and/or Printing Services. The client  will be charged a $25 cancellation fee and accrued design time in the event the project is terminated. Signed estimate and payment is required before design begins. A 50 percent nonrefundable deposit is required for check or credit card payments. The balance is paid before delivering les to the client or printer.

Rush fees
See above. An additional per hour charge is applied to rush projects. Rush fees are determined by project specifications, deadlines and current project load. The designer manager will determine if projects are charged a rush fee. Clients will be notified of this when receiving an estimate. 
All Media Graphix clients receive three rounds of revisions as part of the design process. A revision is a minor modification or correction needed to produce a final design. A round of revisions is a collection of edits, feedback, ideas, comments or questions provided by the client. A round concludes once the designer supplies a new proof. 

  1. An additional round of revision is $20/round 
  2. Large projects may be granted more rounds of revisions as determined by the designer Media Graphix 
  3. Specific changes may be outside the round of revisions 
  4. No additional fees are charged if edits are the result of designer error 
  5. Clients are responsible for any additional charges due for rounds of revisions after surpassing base rounds 
Deliverables are the designs produced for a client. Media Graphix deliverables may include posters, logos, handouts, banners, brochures, web graphics, advertisements, artwork, stationary, business cards, reports, menus, graphs and presentations. 
Significant demands or major alterations to the design might require a change request. A designer will notify the client if a change request is needed. A new design request form and additional costs may be required.
