In this contract you won't find complicated legal terms or large passages of unreadable text. We have no desire to trick you into signing something that you might later regret. We do want what's best for the safety of both parties, now and in the future.

Changes, revisions & turn around time.
We know from plenty of experience that fixed-price contracts are rarely beneficial to you, as they often limit you to your first idea about how something should look, or how it might work. We don't want to limit either your options or your opportunities to change your mind.
The estimate/quotation price is based on the number of days that we estimate we'll need to accomplish everything that you have told us you want to achieve. If you do want to change your mind, we might ask you to put requests in writing so we can keep track of changes. You may be charged a fee accordingly.
You will receive two rounds of revisions : one for the vine placement and one for the final rough draft . If you need more revisions, a fee may apply.
DUE TO REVISIONS GIVEN, THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS . We believe there is nothing we can't solve with communication & revisions!
