Contract Terms & Conditions

Prior to beginning work on any marketing project, Alchemy Imageworks requires

each client to submit a signed project estimate along with a deposit equal to 50% of their project estimate. The signed project estimate or initial invoice serves as a written agreement between Alchemy Imageworks and the client and clarifies the scope of the project.

Client Responsibility for Graphic Art for Print

Clients must provide the text content for basic company information including names, titles, phone numbers and address, plus additional text content for the message. Text, photographs or special graphics requirements including format are detailed on the Ordering Advice page or may be requested during initial communications.

Client Responsibility for Website Content

Clients understand their business better than anyone, so they are responsible for providing web design text content and unique graphics such as a logo or photographs. Custom web graphics to present your corporate image and colour scheme are included in the price of your small business web design.

Special Note about Trifold Brochure and Other Text Content

Often text content is one of the most difficult aspects of helping your designer. Many small business owners know their business inside and out, but have trouble documenting this information. Writing skills and perfect content or spelling is NOT necessary. For each section of your project it will often be enough to write a list of bullets or phrases that describe what you do and the benefit to your customers. We will take care of the rest.

A Special Note about Web Design Text Content

Often website text content is one of the more difficult aspects of helping your designer. Many small business owners know their business inside and out, but have trouble documenting this information.

Our team of design and writing professionals will do the rest. Please note that additional copyrighting may be assessed for fee as appropriate.
