TEXT: You should supply all text copy in a common electronic file format such as email, Word or Pages document or a text file. A fee may be applied for any printed or hand-written copy that needs to be typed up. We are not responsible for supplying, writing, editing or proof-reading any text content unless otherwise specified in the project proposal.

PHOTOGRAPHS AND IMAGES: You should supply graphic files in a suitable digital format (.jpg, .png or .gif) and preferably in an editable vector format (.eps or .ai). You should supply photographs in a high-resolution digital format (.jpg or .tif). Photography, illustrations, stock images, and stock library searches will only be provided if specified in the project proposal.

PERMISSIONS FOR SUPPLIED MATERIALS: It is assumed that you will obtain all the necessary permissions, licenses, and/or usage rights for all text, images, logos, trademarks, and any other materials you supply to me. You will be liable for all costs incurred by us in defending against any claim of infringement of copyright for materials provided by you.


The proposed project total reflects a good faith estimate based on the existing understanding of the objectives and priorities of your business. If the project scope changes to an extent that substantially alters the specifications described in the original estimate, a proposal revision memo will be submitted, and a revised or additional fee must be agreed upon before further work proceeds.

Services or parts of services that have been approved by you are considered complete to your satisfaction. Any additional work, revisions, or modifications on previously approved services or parts of services will be invoiced in addition to the fee schedule at an hourly rate of $160.00 per hour.


It is the client’s ultimate responsibility to thoroughly review the final product or service before approving it. Tall Poppies Design will do its best to identify and eliminate any content-related error and omissions. However, Tall Poppies Design is not responsible should any such error or omission go undetected and become a part of the final materials.


Our payment terms are seven days from the date of the invoice. We reserve the right to charge interest on all overdue debts at the rate of 5% per month. Work will not be scheduled nor start until the first invoice has been paid. Final work will not be released, nor websites put live until payment has been received for the final invoice. Fees must be paid for all work performed and items delivered, regardless of the project’s ultimate end use.

If applicable, any interim invoices are issued evenly across the duration of the proposed project time scale and are not associated with any milestones or deliverables.


You are liable for all third-party charges we incur on your behalf during our work together. These charges include but are not limited to, stock image purchases, fonts, online advertising expenses, web hosting, third-party tools, and service subscriptions. All third-party charges will be submitted for your written approval before acquisition.


Either you or we can terminate this agreement at any time by giving at least one month's written notice. You can terminate this agreement at any time by giving written notice effective from the date of the notice if we breach these terms and conditions and fail to rectify that breach, or we cease to provide the services or we are insolvent.

If at any stage we feel that the completion of the project is at risk of being derailed—for reasons including, but not limited to, persistent requests for alterations and excessive delays in supplying feedback or materials—we reserve the right to cancel this project and invoice pro-rata for any completed work up to that point.

Upon termination of this agreement, we shall deliver a Termination Invoice for work completed to date, which shall be paid by the client. The Termination Invoice shall specify all unpaid work hours at the agreed hourly fee of $160.00 per hour, not to exceed the total proposed fee schedule. If the total unpaid work hours is less than the total invoice amounts paid to date, we will refund the difference.


Should you disengage from the project and not contact us for over 30 days without prior written explanation, your services will be canceled and you will forfeit all amounts paid. You will remain liable for all third-party charges approved by you, and outstanding invoices.

If you wish to place an indefinite hold on the project, you will be charged a $450 per month holding fee until the project re-commences. Invoices already paid will not be refunded. A project on hold longer than three months is automatically canceled with no refund and if you wish to hire us again, the proposal and fees will be revised.


Tall Poppies Design will correct technical issues related to codes and functionality of website components that resulted from Tall Poppies Design oversight within 30 days of project completion.
