1. PROJECT ACCEPTANCE

Issho ni Creative will provide the Client with a written estimate. A copy of the written estimate must be signed and dated by the Client to indicate acceptance and should be returned to Issho ni Creative. Alternatively, the Client may send an official order in reply to the estimate in either written or verbal form, which will be deemed to bind the Client to accept Issho ni Creative’s terms of business. No work on a project will commence until either document has been received by Issho ni Creative.

2. ESTIMATES

Any estimate produced by Issho ni Creative is valid for 7 days from the date of its issue, and is based upon the Client’s instructions, brief and description of the work to be completed. All amended requirements or additional work requested by the Client (including any outside services necessarily procured in order to carry out this work) which is not specifically referred to in the original estimate, shall be regarded as additional to the cost given in the estimate, and will be additionally invoiced. All estimates of costs and services are given inclusive of GST. All estimates exclude travel, courier and delivery costs associated with the project unless specifically stated.

3. BRIEFING

Issho ni Creative does not accept responsibility for missed deadlines unless arising directly from Issho ni Creative’s negligence. When sending briefing instructions by post or electronic mail it is the Client’s responsibility to ensure a follow-up call is made to satisfy itself that Issho ni Creative are in receipt of the project details and deadlines.

4. PRIORITY SERVICE

Sometimes a project is required within a timeframe which necessitates the working of overtime. Issho ni Creative charge a 20% premium on its normal fee to do work of this nature. If a Client wishes to have a project completed within a short timeframe or if the timeframe for a project is important this must be discussed and agreed with Issho ni Creative. Issho ni Creative will confirm whether your project is achievable within the specified timescale and the likely additional costs which must be agreed by the Client before Issho ni Creative shall incur any liability in respect of a failure to achieve any timeframe.

5. FEES AND COSTS

Work is generally charged on a time/cost basis. The scale of hourly charges vary according to the type of work, or the experience and expertise that a project may demand. It is Issho ni Creative’s normal working practice to provide a detailed production estimate for the approval of the Client before any work commences. All such estimates given by Issho ni Creative shall be based on the Client’s instructions specifying the work required. Estimates are based on what Issho ni Creative consider to be a reasonable time schedule for a project’s completion during normal office hours, including the cost of time, and the cost of services anticipated to be provided by external sources.

6. PAYMENT

On acceptance of a Estimate, you accept these terms & conditions and a non-refundable deposit of 40% of the Estimated fee will become immediately due. Work on the project will not commence until Issho ni Creative has received this payment. Charges for any additional services are payable in full at the time of estimate or quotation acceptance. Accounts will be issued upon completion of an order and payment is required within 14 days — a specific due date is clearly stated on all invoices. All promotional product orders and printing orders require payment in full before we will proceed with the order unless otherwise specified. All payments are non-refundable and required even if deliverables are not used by client. Accounts which remain outstanding for 14 days after the due date of invoice, without a reasonable attempt to contact issho ni creative to organise a payment extension and/or payment plan, will be re-issued with a 2% fee and a new due date within a time frame deemed reasonable by Issho ni Creative. Publication and/or release of work completed by Issho ni Creative on behalf of the Client, will not be authorised until cleared funds have been received. Issho ni Creative shall be entitled to retain material produced by, or for Issho ni Creative until payment has been made in full of any outstanding invoice. Should the Client fail to pay any outstanding invoice in due time Issho ni Creative shall be entitled to treat that failure as a repudiation of the whole contract, cease any continuing work for the Client and recover costs and damages.

Bank Deposit : Our bank deposit details are provided at the bottom of your invoice. Please use these details to complete your payment through your online banking account.

Payment Plans : Issho ni Creative will negotiate a payment schedule with you and then provide you with a direct debit authority to complete. You are required to set up your direct debit options and agree to the direct debit terms and conditions upon receiving the invoice before any work on your project will commence. You can choose to have your payments automatically direct debited from either a bank account or a credit card. All credit card payments incur a 1.75%* surcharge payable by the client at the time of processing. There are no fees associated with direct debit from a bank account. Please ensure funds are available when automatic direct debits are due.

7. CANCELLATION

Once the estimate or quotation has been confirmed, the Client may still cancel their instructions on the express condition that Issho ni Creative shall be indemnified against all costs or fees already incurred.

8. DEFAULT

An account shall be considered in default if it remains unpaid for 21 days from the date of invoice, or if a payment is dishonoured. Issho ni Creative shall be entitled to remove Issho ni Creative’s and/or the Client’s material from any and all computer systems, until the amount due has been fully paid. Accounts may be in default in relation to, amongst other things, unpaid monies due for services, including, but not limited to, hosting, domain registration, search engine submission, design and maintenance, sub-contractors, printers, photographers and libraries. Removal of materials from computer systems does not relieve the Client of its obligation to pay the due amount. Clients whose accounts are in default agree to pay Issho ni Creative’s reasonable legal expenses and third party collection agency fees in respect of the enforcement of these terms of business.

9. COPYRIGHT AND OWNERSHIP

Illustrators and photographers commissioned by us, on behalf of the Client, retain ownership of full copyright in their work unless specifically stated on the estimate or quotation.

The Client undertakes to return all such material to Issho ni Creative on demand where such material is no longer required for the purposes specified by the Client and agreed by Issho ni Creative. If a choice of design is presented, only one solution is deemed to be given by Issho ni Creative as fulfilling the contract. All other designs remain the property of Issho ni Creative, unless otherwise agreed in writing. The electronic file remains the property of Issho ni Creative. The Client has no authority to retain a copy, sub-licence or alienate any such copyright to any other third party to use the copyright material for any other purpose than as agreed by Issho ni Creative. Photo libraries from which Issho ni Creative hires visual images on behalf of the Client, retain ownership of full copyright in their work, unless specifically stated on the estimate.

12. CLIENT’S PROPERTY

The Client’s property and all property supplied to Issho ni Creative by, or on behalf of the Client while in Issho ni Creative’s possession, will be held to be at the Client’s risk unless otherwise agreed in writing. The Client should insure accordingly.
