Pesky but necessary details

For individuals/self-publishers: Once I have provided a quote for your project, and an agreement is in place, I will require a deposit of 30-50% of the total price to secure your place in my work schedule. For short-term projects, 50% is due up front, and the remainder when complete. For longer-term projects, 30% is due up front, 30% at the halfway point, and the remainder upon completion. I reserve the right to withhold work until payment is received in full. Variations from this policy are at my discretion only. For agencies/institutions/companies: Once we have agreed on terms and a contract is in place, I will commence work and send an invoice or invoices according to the terms of the agreement. Payment is due 30 days from the invoice date.

Payment is accepted by PayPal, personal check, p-card, or other mutually agreed-upon method. Personal checks must clear the bank prior to my sending the completed work back to you.
