Schedules/Overtime/Rush Work: Hunter Foss Design reserves the right to adjust the schedule and/or charge additionally in the event that the Client fails to meet the agreed-upon deadlines for delivery of information, materials, approvals, payments, and for changes and additions to the services outlined in the estimate/proposal.

Client Approval: The Client will approve and proofread all final designs and type before the production of mechanicals. The Client’s approval of all tangible materials and artwork will be assumed after the work has been submitted to the client for review, unless the client indicates otherwise in writing.

Rights/Ownership: All tangible materials in all circumstances remain the property of Hunter Foss Design. All rights and ownership apply to preliminary concepts, work in progress, and finished material, whether the project is completed or cancelled.

Upon payment of all fees and expenses, Hunter Foss Design will grant all reproduction and/or usage rights, as outlined in the attached estimate/proposal, for all approved final materials created by the Designer for this project. If the Client wishes to make any additional use of the materials, the Client agrees to seek permission from the Designer and make such payments as are approved by the parties at that time. Where alterations or retakes are necessary, Hunter Foss Design will be given the opportunity first to make such changes at an additional charge. All copyrights are sold separately.

Electronic Files: If the Client has requirements for how the project is to be prepared electronically, the Client must communicate this to Hunter Foss Design before the project begins.

Reimbursable Expenses: Any budget figures or estimates for reimbursable expenses or implementation charges, such as out-of-pocket expenses, typesetting, printing, fabrication, or installation, are for planning purposes only. Hunter Foss Design will use her best efforts to work within stated budgets but will not be liable if these expenses exceed budgets. When possible, no expenses in excess of $100.00 of the budget will be incurred without the Client’s written or initialed approval in advance. The Client will reimburse Hunter Foss Design for all out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Hunter Foss Design on this project.

Payment Schedule: Upon approval of the estimate/proposal, the Client will make all payment installments, as scheduled and outlined in our estimate/proposal. The Client will pay interest on all overdue amounts not exceeding the maximum amount allowed by law.

Third-party Contracts: Hunter Foss Design may contract with other individuals or companies acting on behalf of the Client to provide additional services such as writing, photography, illustration, printing, and fabrication.
