Terms of Payment: All payments shall be made by Customer in Canadian funds with a minimum 50% deposit required prior to commencement of work with the remaining due upon completion of work, without set-off, deduction or back-charges. In the event that a project cannot be accurately quoted (i.e. partial vehicle wrap) prior to a final design, we require a design deposit which is based on the estimated time required for design with the reminder due on completion of design. Our initial quote will be based on all the information provided by a customer. This quote can be considered final unless some information was missed, not included, or misleading. In the event that something has been missed it is usually caught during the design, production, or installation when pictures and measurements are taken of a vehicle or building which may have previously been unavailable to the Issuer to measure. Should any issues arise the Issuer will advise the Customer of the revision and provide a revised quote for the completion of the project. Should the Customer no longer wish to proceed after receiving the revised quote the Customer may cancel the this Contract and is responsible for all costs and invoices incurred by the Issuer up the current portion of the contract. Customers shall pay interest on all invoice amounts not paid within the above terms and condition of the completion date at a rate of 18% per annum calculated on a daily basis from such date.
Stock Photography: The Issuer often uses stock photography to aid in design which saves our customers money. Rather than creating something from scratch which could take several hours it is often easier to buy an image which is similar and alter it for a specific design. When using the stock photo sites we use each stockphoto/image purchased will cost $25. Some web sites are more expensive and should a customer send us a photo from a different site where it cost more the cost of that image from that specific site will be billed.
Customer Responsibilities: Cleaning Fees – Our installers will naturally clean any surface which they wil be installing graphics to. This cleaning typically entails cleaning the surface with various cleaning products. This is a basic cleaning to prep the surface for graphics and does not including heavy cleaning. Vehicle need to be taken through a car wash prior to being dropped off. Building windows and other surfaced need to also be cleaned prior to our installers showing up on site. Should our installer be required to scrape off and clean surfaces which appear to not have been cleaned in a long time, during or after construction in the vicinity a cleaning charge may apply.
Removal of Graphics – When we are asked to quote a job please remember to mention if there are existing graphics which need to be removed. Removal can take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. It can often delay the installation and completion date if we are not notified of existing graphics which need to be removed. In the event where we have quoted a job for installation and no mention of existing graphics has been brought to our attention; An hourly removal charge will automatically be charged on the final invoice.
Customer Changes and Revisions – It is normal for a design to go through several design stages and rounds of changes. Due to the number of projects which we work on simultaneously as well as the number of changes which are sometime required during a single session. We require any and all changes to be made with one of the following option. 1) Email – Email is the preferred way we would like to receive changes. This was we have a documented request and can always ensure all changes are made to your standards. 2) Design Appointment – If you would like to setup a design appointment with one of our designers we would be more than happy to do that. This way any changes can be done with you immediately and often speeding up the design process and while ensuring changes are done to your satisfaction. In many cases it helps our designers for customer to discuss changes over the phone to better understand what is required. This is encouraged but should be preceded with an email which the designer can follow during the discussion and take notes on and further elaborations regarding those changes. Our policies require our designers to only make changes which have been submitted through one of the above options.
Customer Supplied Print Ready Artwork – Print Ready artwork is considered to be a PDF file which does need to be checked, resized, adjusted or modified in any way. In other words it does not require any design or setup time. Customer Supplied Artwork is different than Customer Supplied Print Ready Artwork. In general when we are received Print Ready artwork the setup charge is less as it requires do design setup just printer setup and calibration. There is also no design time quoted as it is not required.
Installation Obstructions – On-site installations are a part of our daily schedule. When we quote a project we usually estimate the installation time fairly accurately. Our installers always try to do an amazing job and complete it on time. We try to anticipate every obstacle we will face prior to the installation however sometime obstacles can delay the installation or post pone it for days.
