Payments are due and payable on the following schedule: 20% project deposit is due up front for all services and after the creative brief form is completed and an invoice is sent to the client. The remaining payment is due before final website is uploaded, files are provided, and files are sent to you.
The project deposit is non-refundable, and if a project is cancelled by "the client", for whatever reason, the deposit will serve as a cancellation fee, along with a prorata payment based upon the time spent if it exceeds 70% of the quoted work.

All fees and expenses presented to the client are estimates only. Estimates may fluctuate (up or down) depending upon the adjustments and considerations made that cause change to the project(s). Final fees and expenses shall be shown when invoice(s) is rendered.

If a project is cancelled by Twingenuity Graphics due to unforeseen circumstances, the deposit will be refunded in full to the client in a timely manner.
