terms and conditions
Below is Designki Graphic Design & Print standard Terms and Conditions. Please also note that from time to time DK may need to alter these terms and conditions without notice.
Please take time to read through our Terms and Conditions thoroughly and ensure you understand them before you commence a project with us. By requesting designs and/or printing service from Designki Graphic Design & Print (refer to as "DK") you (the client) agree to our Terms and Conditions and you are aware that you are entering a binding contract - payment is required.
DK provides project estimates based on the information provided to us at the time of quoting. If work undertaken exceeds/evolves outside the scope of the orginal agreement, where ever possible the client will be notified of any additional fees.
For Design Service
For design project under $1000, full payment must be received before commencement of work. 50% deposit is required for project over $1000.
In the case of a change of mind by the client after a project has commenced (once research, resources allocated or design work has commenced on a project), only partial payment will be refunded based upon the time spent.
For Printing Service
All printing accounts must be settled in full prior to the release of the files to the print. If you are having difficulty paying your invoice, please contact DK as soon as you are aware of the issue, so we can discuss a solution for this.
The client agrees to allow DK to showcase any/all work created in the course of a project as part of DK’s portfolio. DK acknowledges the confidential nature of projects and agrees to only display project work once product/site/event has been publicly launched/commenced/released.
DK shall not be liable for any failure or delay in supply or delivery of products/services where such failure or delay is wholly or partly due to any cause or circumstances whatsoever outside the reasonable control of DK including but not limited to war, natural disasters, strikes, lockouts, industrial disputes or unrest, government restrictions or transport delays, fire, power outages, failure attributable to hosting suppliers, breakdown of plant, theft, vandalism, riots, civil commotions, accidents of any kind or act of terrorism.
Each design package has a set number of revisions. If further revisions are required there may be additional charges applicable. The client will need to approve additional charges for extra design revisions and make payment in full prior to work commencing on the additional revisions.
This is defined as any work involving additions to the list of items defined in the estimate of services or changes to all pieces of finished artwork after sign off by the client. From time to time the client will require extra design requirements during a project, or extra files upon completion of a project. The client will be informed that the alterations or changes requested fall outside the original scope of work. Additional charges will be applied if the client wish to proceed. All additional costs will be added the original or new invoice created by DK, payable prior to delivery of all final files.
final artwork approval
Whilst every care will be taken, DK accepts no responsibility for errors (such as spelling mistakes, incorrect/missing information etc..) found after final artwork approved by the client. It is the client’s responsibility to proof read and approve all final artwork before production. Artwork approval must be sent electronically (via email, sms/text or through dropbox, facebook, instagram) to DK before commence printing. No refunds or reprints are given after a final approved design has gone to print due oversights by the client’s proof reading.
Printing will not commence until full payment for artwork and printing service is received. The current turnaround time for printing is 2-14 working days dependant on the project / product type. This period commences at date of client approval of artwork proof and payment.
With all printing there may be some colour variations from what you have seen on screen to what the final product looks like and previous orders. This is due to the nature of CMYK printing and bulk-run printing system. There will be no reprints at the expense of DK.
