8.1 You will receive digital Adobe PDF proofs for review. Please print and thoroughly examine fonts, spacing, formatting, spelling, and dates. Approval of the proof is essential before production or release. Design Twist is not responsible for typographic errors, omissions, or mistakes overlooked by the client. To ensure clarity and transparency throughout the proofing process, we want to outline several critical disclaimers and guidelines for your attention to note for proofing your project:


  • Monitor Colour and Settings: Please be aware that colours may appear differently on various monitors due to differences in calibration and settings. While we strive to maintain colour accuracy, discrepancies may arise between on-screen representations and final printed or digital outputs.

  • Font Sizes and Rendering: Our design team carefully selects fonts and adjusts font sizes to optimize readability and aesthetic appeal. However, font rendering may vary across devices and software platforms. We recommend reviewing the design on multiple devices to ensure consistent rendering.

  • Spelling, Grammar, and Content Accuracy: While we employ meticulous proofreading processes, errors in spelling, grammar, or content accuracy may inadvertently occur. You must thoroughly review all text content for the project to ensure accuracy and consistency. Any amendments or revisions to content after the proofing process may incur additional charges and delay project completion.

  • Original Content Supplied to the Designer: The content provided to our design team must be accurate, complete, and free from errors or omissions. Any inaccuracies or discrepancies in the original content may impact the quality and effectiveness of the final design.

  • Content Writing Corrections: Please note that the designer cannot be held responsible for correcting the content writing submitted for the project. We will faithfully integrate the content provided, but proofreading and content editing is the client's responsibility.

  • Image Resolution and Quality: To achieve optimal print quality, it is essential to supply high-resolution images for inclusion in the design. Low-resolution images may result in pixelation or loss of clarity in the final output. We recommend providing images with a minimum resolution of 300 dots per inch (DPI) for best results. This means that for high-quality printing, images should ideally be at least 300 pixels per inch (PPI) at the size they will be printed.

  • For example, if you want to print an image at 8 inches by 10 inches, the image resolution should be at least 2400 pixels by 3000 pixels (8 inches * 300 DPI by 10 inches * 300 DPI). However, lower resolutions may be acceptable for large-format printing or materials that will be viewed from a distance (such as banners or billboards). In those cases, resolutions between 100 to 150 DPI might suffice.

  • Print Specifications and Requirements: If your project involves printing, please provide detailed print specifications, including size, paper type, and special finishing requirements. Any changes to print specifications after the proofing process may necessitate adjustments to the design and incur additional costs.

  • Copyright and Licensing Compliance: You, the client, are responsible for ensuring that all content provided for the project, including images, logos, and text, is free from copyright infringement and that you have the necessary rights and permissions for its use. We disclaim any liability arising from the unauthorized use of copyrighted materials and are not responsible for researching or authorizing them.

  • Client Approval and Finalization: Your approval of the final proof signifies your acceptance of the design as presented. It is essential to carefully review all design aspects to confirm that they align with your expectations and requirements. Once approved, any subsequent changes may result in additional charges and project delays.

Upon verification and final written approval, payment must be made in full for printing unless agreed otherwise. Invoices will be emailed and marked with a payment due date. Overdue invoices will incur an additional 1.5% charge. After three overdue invoices, the account may be sent to a collection agency.​




9.1 Design Twist or Lori Dale maintains the right to incorporate final artwork into its portfolio or use it as samples for personal promotion unless otherwise specified and agreed upon by the client in the contract before project commencement. 


9.2 Lori Dale created or designed all projects showcased on this website and formed part of her graphic design portfolio from 2002 to now. Design Twist may not have charged some projects.

9.3 A fee of 25% of the total design or a minimum of $250, whichever is greater, is applicable if the client requests native InDesign, Photoshop, or Illustrator files. The original artwork remains copyrighted to Design Twist unless expressly released.​



10.1 If you need to cancel an order that will be printed, we will try our best to accommodate, provided printing has yet to commence. Please call or text us (fastest) at 905.869.8978 as soon as possible. 


10.2 ​A cancellation fee of 100% of design charges plus 20% of the total printing price applies if the job has not been printed. 


10.3 Orders on hold for over 30 days will be considered cancelled, with applicable fees. Reopening orders within 30 days credits fees to reopened projects.



11.1 Design Twist is excused from any delay or failure in performance beyond its control, including acts of God, war, fire, strikes, or natural disasters.​ If circumstances beyond our reasonable control, such as pandemics, infectious disease outbreaks, government shutdowns, natural disasters (like lightning, floods, or exceptionally severe weather), fires, explosions, wars, civil unrest, labour disputes, government actions, telecommunication or utility failures, or hostile network attacks, prevent us from fulfilling any obligation under this Agreement, we will not be held liable for our inability to perform. However, once the Force Majeure Event causing the hindrance is resolved, we will promptly resume our obligations under the Agreement.




The client acknowledges that Design Twist is not liable for any indirect, incidental, special, or consequential losses or damages in profits, goods, or services, regardless of whether the possibility of such loss or damage was anticipated.
