TERMS & CONDITIONS
Please read this.
It is important.
It is important because after you read it you know what you are paying for, why you are paying it, and when. You also know exactly what I am going to make for you, when I am going to make it, and what I need from you to get it done. This process is built on trust, and trust works best when everyone knows what to expect.

NOW, SOME SPECIFICS:
My time is valuable. Your time is valuable. I design really beautiful things for you, and you pay me.
Please note: We will generally make changes within one or two days after you request them. Which means that If we send you a proof, and then you wait a month to send input; we will probably not drop everything and get back to you within the hour. We MIGHT, if we are feeling very nice, or are bored, or the changes are really easy… Chances are though, that we are busy and it will take a normal amount of time, which is one or two days.
Everyone is responsible for their own stuff
Please check your proofs carefully, final approvals are as is. We definitely recommend that you order a press proof copy of your book before making a larger order. At no time will Katielizabeth Design be held financially or legally responsible for any problems, costs, fees or expenses that may arise from the use of your cover, website, or marketing materials.
Once final payment has been received, Katielizabeth Design regards this as final approval of the overall design, and the contract to be fulfilled. Any additional changes may require additional payments.
Either the client or Katielizabeth Design may cancel a project before the start date by providing written notice to the other, and will be under no further obligation to the other party.
If, after the initial deposit has been paid, and work has started on the design, the client chooses to end the project, they agree to forfeit the deposit already paid. This is to cover the costs and time that we have already spent. If we end the project, we will refund the deposit already paid.
All the information that clients share with us is considered confidential, and will only be used by Katielizabeth Design Services to provide a quote or complete your design projects.
We will not share this information with any third party, unless requested to do so by our client.
