Additional Work During Project
During the event that there will be additional requests after the project has begun, extra fees—other than the price originally quoted—will apply. Client will be notified at the time of request of the additional fees.
Our Design Team
Depending on the project, a small team may be required. This will be at no additional cost to you, but let us know if you have an issue with a team working on your project.
Images & Stock Photos
It’s optional to provide your own images. We work with our own gallery of stock images at no extra charge to you. Fees may apply in specific cases (large quantity requests, special licensing for photos, etc). You will be advised of these fees after consultation of your project.
Search Engines and SEO
Outside of the keywords and basic SEO we incorporate in your site, we are not responsible for search engine promotion or marketing of any kind.
A project is considered abandoned when—after completion—customer does not get back to us starting at a minimum of 4 consecutive weeks (1 month). If the balance of your invoice has not been paid, and we are contacted after the 1 month for the files or website launch, an interest fee of $100.00 will apply before the files are given to you or your website is launched.
Our Portfolio and Website Credit
We reserve the right to add completed projects to our portfolio. If a full web design project was completed by our firm, in most cases a credit—Website Designed by TWA Solutions—will be included at the bottom of your website. In certain cases, our website credit will not be posted due to privacy purposes and we respect that. Please notify us if this is the case.
Copyright for Logo Design
Client will have the exclusive right to the logo design chosen. All logos are 100% custom and 100% vector, which means that you can scale to any size without losing quality. Any concepts that are not chosen and paid for will be a violation of TWA Solutions’ rights if they are used elsewhere.
Copyright for Web Design
Web designs are tailored to each business. Note that we reserve the right to use stock images, as required, as part of your web design template. Any concepts that are not chosen and paid for will be a violation of TWA Solutions’ rights if they are used elsewhere.
Revisions to Website
Small revisions can be made after we run the test site (like textual changes or images) or after logo concepts are presented. We allow TWO rounds of revisions. After that, however, we bill at $25 per additional round.
If you did not secure your hosting through TWA Solutions, and your hosting did not renew, TWA Solutions will upload your website for a fee of $100.
Our Web Design Presentation
Our website design concepts include anywhere from 2 – 5 pages (depending on the scope of the project). Additional designs over 5 pages that are requested to be presented, will be billed at $100.00/page. If the first design mockup presented is not to your taste, second mockup is FREE. Beyond that, brand new design concepts will be charged at regular price.
Website Content From You
Upon each website project we begin, a web design questionnaire is given to the client to fill out to help the project run more smoothly. We ask that ALL WEBSITE CONTENT is given with the web design questionnaire. This not only helps firm up an accurate and well laid out design mockup, but it helps to speed up the process as well and get your website launched.
We will input your content for you, if you have provided it to us in a timely manner. HOWEVER, we are not responsible for proof reading your content, unless you secure our proof-reading services. The content given to us will be added to your website as provided. Please take note that if there are a lot of revisions from the content you’ve given us, an hourly fee may apply. Typically, if the errors are minimal, we will make the corrections at no extra charge.
FREE or Discounted Print Design(s)
Depending on the package chosen, FREE or discounted print design(s) are offered. To qualify for this FREE or discounted print design with your package, it must be ordered at the time your quote is sent or before your website project ends. Placing an order for a print design after your package project is complete, will not qualify you for this promotion and you will be billed at regular price.
We work with third-party printers that we trust and in which we are affiliated. In the rare case that there is a printing issue, we will work with the printers to get it resolved, but any costs incurred will not be at the expense of TWA Solutions.
Printing Color Variations
Please note that some print materials may not show the exact same color that is showing up on your screen. This is because each computer screen tint can be different on each screen. Any reprints required will not be at the expense of TWA Solutions. We recommend providing Hex #s or Pantone colors if you need exact shades matched up.
Final Artwork File Delivery
Final artwork files are emailed in a zip file. Please notify us if there is a special request.
