Prices valid for 30 days from date on your quote. The fees quoted are for the original job description as presented by the Client. Any subsequent changes, whether made orally or in writing, may result in additional charges. The accompanying quote is a good faith estimate of the time and expenses Lyfe Rocks anticipates. The Client understands and agrees that Lyfe Rocks will bill for actual time and expenses incurred, which may be greater than that which was quoted. Any labor required over the quoted amount and all communications, travel, or meetings will be billed at $80 per hour.
New design proofs are presented within 5 business days (Monday–Friday, 10:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.) of receiving all project information and deposit. Edits are made within 3 business days of receiving feedback. Printing has a minimum 6–8 business day turnaround time.
Pending Lyfe Rocks schedule, design services may be rushed for an additional fee. An increase of 25% our quoted hourly rate is charged for proofs within 3 business days. An increase of 50% is charged for proofs within 1 business day or if work is required outside of normal business days and/or hours (Monday–Friday, 9:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.). Printing may not always be able to be rushed but we will work with our printers to accommodate your needs as best we can.
PROOF READING YOUR ARTWORK
Read your proof carefully. Review all names, addresses, phone numbers, websites, and other important information. Lyfe Rocks is not responsible for errors found after the artwork has been approved; accuracy of the information is the Client's responsibility. Refunds or discounts will not be given due to errors found on Client-approved artwork. Clients are allotted three (3) changes to the design work that they requested for that print order only. After using their 3 changes, clients will be charged $25.00 for additional changes. All products designed and printed by us will be tagged with the Lyfe Rocks Logo. If you do not want a tag it will cost $25. Payment in full is due prior to any order(s) going to print. Due to our gang run printing process of flyers the EXACT COLOR and Flyer CUTS cannot be guaranteed.
Due to differences in monitor and printer calibration, the color of the printed piece may vary from what you see on screen or what prints on your printer. If you are concerned, please let us know so that we can make arrangements for you to see a press proof before printing.
