Company Policy
Services: When 171 Creative is commissioned and engaged in the business of providing graphic design, website design and development services by the Client, 171 Creative will provide the goods and/or services and list-of-includes detailed on the Client Proposal.
Terms & Timeline: The term of all projects will commence on the date that the Client issues the standard fifty percent (50%) deposit and shall not exceed sixty (60) days, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing or electronic signature by both Parties. 
The charge for any additional changes to all design materials after Client acceptance of the project is invoiced at $125 per hour or as otherwise provided on 171 Creative Menu of Services.
All content (i.e., text, images, video, audio) must be submitted by the Client in a timely manner or within thirty (30) days of the paid deposit date. If the Client does not submit all of the content materials needed for the project, the time-line may be adjusted to accommodate a reasonable desired date agreed upon by both Parties, however, the Client must pay a fifty percent (50%) payment of the remaining final balance, and at 171 Creative’s discretion, reserves the right to review and adjust the project price up to 50% of the original Client Proposal.
Payment: A deposit of fifty percent (50%) is due upon signing the Standard Agreement(s) with 171 Creative (Phase 1). The remaining balance is due upon completion of the project(s) and within five (5) business days of the invoice date submitted to the Client. A late fee of twenty-five ($25) dollars will be applied to any past due date balance every five (5) days that balance remains unpaid.
Stock Images: Any and all stock imagery the Client wishes to include in the website must be paid and provide by the Client. 171 Creative may be hired to search for stock images within stock image websites (i.e., iStockPhoto.com, Shutterstock.com, BigStock.com) for a fee of $25 per hour (such services subject to Client’s prior written approval).
Website Launch: As a courtesy, 171 Creative will upload the complete and final website to the Client’s hosting service provider prior to receiving final payment. At 171 Creative’s discretion, if final payment is not received within five (5) business days of receipt of invoice, the website may be taken offline from the hosting provider until final payment is received in full.
