Blog Design Terms
We’re not always able to take on every project that is submitted. We choose projects based on our abilities and time availability. Leap reserves the right to decline a project if we feel it is not well-suited for our skills. Leap reserves the right to terminate a project if it becomes a burden and nonprofitable.
Leap accepts payment for custom blog design through Paypal only. A non-refundable $125 deposit must be paid before the design process starts. Design must be paid in full before design is installed. Pre-made templates must be paid up front. Sorry people, Leap does not offer refunds on partial or full payments, even if you decide to cancel. By paying you are agreeing to these design terms.
Ordering Your Design
The design process is a fun and creative one, but nevertheless, we are not mind-readers and our personal styles may vary. Before placing your order, you must have a clear idea of what design you are looking for. Giving details, color and font preferences, different examples of designs you like are very important to having the design process run smoothly. Additional fees will incur if your design preferences change drastically after the initial design preference submission. We understand, but can not be held responsible for any indecisiveness. So before diving in head first, please think thoroughly about your design preferences before placing an order.
You are placed on the design queue when your blog deposit has been received. Initial proofs are typically sent within 2 weeks. Design will be coded within 1-2 weeks after you have approved the final design. Start times vary depending on how busy we are. We’ll give you a rough estimate of a deadline, but again, it is an estimate.
We do not store images, they are deleted after being uploaded to image host. If you think you’ll need to make changes later, please add Stored Files to your order. If the error is made by Leap we will correct it once with no charge to you.
If there is an add-on later, there is a $35 fee as well as the cost of the item itself.
All conversation between client and Leap is done via email.
Proofs & Revisions
Your design is created based on your design preferences, so please be as specific as possible. After the initial proof is sent, you are allowed 3 rounds of reasonable revisions. Any more revisions after that are $35 for each additional revision.
To install your custom or pre-made design I’ll need access to your blog’s account. You can provide your login information by email or if you’re uncomfortable sending the information online, I can call you.
Any post installation revisions are subject to a $35 change fee, unless it is a mistake on our part.
We delete files after installing, please click the option save files if you think you may make changes down the line. Updates and additional add-ons start at $25 plus the cost of add-ons. This includes the installation of new features or changes.
A Leap Marketing & Design logo and credit will be placed in the footer of your blog. By placing and order and paying for a design you are agreeing to keep that on the blog as long as you are using the design.
Leap is not liable for any photography, images, artwork and copy that is provided by the clients. If using someone else’s work, please make sure you get their permission first.
All designs are uniquely created & owned by Leap Marketing & Design and are protected under copyright laws.
Open M-F, closed weekends and holidays. We are a freelance design company and hours vary greatly. We typically don’t check emails or work over the weekends. If we’re out of town, it’ll be posted on the sidebar of our custom blog design page.
