ARTWORK / PROJECT / PAYMENT POLICIES
RIGHTS AND RELEASE
Design Twist OR Lori Dale reserves the right to use final artwork as part of its/her portfolio or samples unless otherwise specified by the client and signed upon in contract prior to the start of the project. All projects on this website were created/designed by Lori Dale and are part of her personal and professional Graphic Design Portfolio from 2002 until present. Some projects were designed outside of Design Twist but were all designed by Lori Dale.
If the native InDesign, Photoshop, or Illustrator files are requested, there will be an artwork release fee of 25% of the total design or a minimum of $200, whichever is greater. The original artwork remains copyrighted to Design Twist unless released.
You will receive your proof(s) in a digital Adobe PDF file. Please print it out, if possible, carefully look at the size of fonts, spacing, formatting, spelling, dates, etc. We want everything to be perfect, so please proof-read carefully!
Approving the proof is your responsibility before your job will proceed to production or be released. Design Twist will NOT be responsible to proof or approve your work for any typographic errors, omissions or mistakes. Artwork will only go to print with an approval from the client in writing.
DESIGN TWIST WILL NOT ACCEPT LIABILITY FOR ERRORS OVERLOOKED WHEN PRINTED AFTER THE FINAL APPROVAL has been given.
ANY CHANGES FROM YOUR ORIGINAL SUPPLIED DESIGN PROJECT WILL BE CHARGED EXTRA ACCORDING TO BOTH REDESIGN TIME & MATERIALS.
Electronic-proofs closely represent the image colour & text placement, but is not exact in either. This is due to your monitor's colour settings being different than that of the designers. The colours of your proofs as they appear on your monitor are only a close representation of the final printed piece. Colours may vary depending on your monitors brightness, contrast & colour adjustment settings. A hard copy sample can be produced for an additional fee.

After verification & FINAL written approval of your design project(s), payment must be MADE IN FULL for printing, unless agreed upon otherwise. You will be emailed an invoice.
