Terms & Conditions
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
‘Haya in Designs’ has a non-negotiable policy of a non-refundable 50% advance down payment. The remaining payment would not be due until the cover is approved by the client. There is no policy for the covers to be sent to the client prior to complete payment of dues.
Final payment for the designs would be due within 7 days after the payment invoice is sent to the client. After one month, there would be an additional 5% liability per week on the part of the client. However, if more than three months pass without payment of dues, the client will be charged with $100 in addition to the existing payment.
In case of rush orders that are due within a time of less than a week, Haya in Designs tries its best to accommodate them. However, they come with a fee of $100 in addition to the total cost. For those orders that allow a relaxation of more than two weeks, it would be free of extra cost.
Orders for pre-made designs have no half-payment policy. The entire payment needs to be made at once since pre-made designs are limited in number and only those clients who pay in full up-front can be accommodated.
Haya in Designs encourages you to book your covers as soon as possible, allowing substantial time to work before deadlines. All changes should be sought at once at the client’s end, since every change requires more time and scrutiny. Plan your due dates according to your deadlines since Haya in Designs does not take any responsibility in case you miss a deadline.
One to two proofs for the beginning of the work would be sent to the client and if the client is not satisfied with the designs then a new design will be worked on.
Changes to proofs:
There is a capacity for at-least 10 changes to the graphics after the initial proofs are sent to the client, and they are free of cost. For certain packages unlimited revisions are offered.
-Time Frames for Deadlines:
Book your covers at a considerable time well ahead of any deadlines you wish to meet. Any changes afterwards would be accommodated at an additional length of time on our part. We do not take any responsibility for any delays owing to miscommunication on the client’s part.
Changes after approval:
While we do not encourage any changes after approval of designs, the client may bear it certain that any changes, if need be, would be made by Haya in Designs and not any other party. In addition, any alterations in the designs after they have been approved by the client would come at an additional cost, starting from $45 if the changes need to be made in haste and immediately.
