Terms of Service

Brand Identity & Print Design

Brand identity includes but is not limited to brand style guides, stationery, business cards, product packaging and websites.

Print design includes but is not limited to flyers, brochures, posters, advertisements, newsletters, postcards and other marketing collateral for profit or non-profit purposes.

  • Concepts: As outlined in your agreement and contract and upon receiving your company information and deposit, GAD will create a design concept for your project. Designs will be submitted for your review via E-mail unless otherwise negotiated. A personalized proposal will be submitted to the client that includes details on how many revisions will be included for the estimated cost. Total project fees may be negotiated in lieu of an hourly rate. Further revisions will incur additional costs at GAD’s current hourly rate (see additional details outlined in your contract and timeline agreement).

  • Ownership: You, the client, have ownership of the final design for use in any media application that is beneficial to your business. GAD retains the right to use the final design, or any versions of the design created in the process, within printed and online portfolios, including promotional materials such as newsletters and advertisements. The client also gives GAD permission to use client’s full name, business address, and/or website address, for testimonial purposes on his website, or other business related media. The client understands that it is the client’s responsibility to copyright the design (www.copyright.gov) and/or seek trademark (www.uspto.gov/main/trademarks.htm).
  • Payment: In return for graphic design services, the client agrees to pay the total fee payable in one payment. A 50% deposit is required before any work begins and the remaining payment when final design is approved but before it is delivered. The client understands that the final design belongs to GAD until paid in full. In the event of termination of this Agreement, GAD owns the design and has the right to complete, exhibit, and/or sell the design (not including business name). Furthermore, GAD owns all the design concepts created before the final design. The client understands that once the final invoice is paid in full, the client has the right to use the design in all media useful for business promotion and that GAD reserves the right to display the design for business promotional use. Prices are subject to change without notice (this does not include pricing agreed upon in a current signed contract and timeline agreement)

  • Originality: GAD affirms that all designs are original and therefore owns the rights granted under this agreement, and that the rights granted do not conflict any other agreement.
  • Delays: Illness, injury, or other events beyond GAD’s control, such as: fire, theft, computer failure, and Acts of God may result in a delay of unpredictable length.
  • Termination: The client has the right to terminate this Agreement if, GAD fails to complete the design by any deadline that has been submitted and agreed upon in writing. If agreement is terminated for any reason other than failure to deliver within agreed-upon time-frame, GAD shall retain the deposit.
  • Performance Liability: GAD does not warrant that the functions supplied by design(s), consultation or advice, will be uninterrupted or error-free. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of the design is with client. In no event will GAD be liable to the client or any third party for any damages, including any lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising out of the printing, reproduction of, or appearance of the design, even if GAD has been advised of the possibility of such damages.

  • Prices: We reserve the right to change our prices for all services without notice. Prices may be changed at any time without further notice. Prices may also be changed without notice due to unforeseen cost increases, or currency fluctuations. Price quotes are valid for 30 days after receipt unless otherwise noted.
