It will allow us to escalate the process as sometimes the banks take a few days for transactions between different banks.
6. MODIFICATIONS TO PRICE
Prices of our products and services are subject to change without notice.
Due to the digital and customised nature of our products we are unable to offer full refunds after the project has commenced and design drafts have been delivered. If the client wishes to cancel their order due to change of mind before work has commenced a 50% payment of the total cost will be kept.
8. PROJECT TIME FRAMES
Logo designs will be scheduled after payment has been received (Generally 5-7 business days from payment). Custom Design total timeframes vary. We will always aim to work within the requested timeframe. Responding quickly to our emails will speed the process up. Rush fees may be necessary to meet deadlines if we are busy, as designs are completed in order of purchase.
Designs that are left by clients to a later date will have an expiry of 8 weeks from date of payment unless discussed otherwise. If designs are not completed after this time frame due to clients lack of communication, designs will expire and need to be repurchased. It is the client's responsibility to respond promptly to emails sent by Ree Creative to ensure that this does not happen.
9. RUSH ORDERS
If you need your order urgently, please keep in mind we have a rush order fee and this will depend on size of job and date required. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to meet your time frame.

All drafts will be emailed to the client as a low resolution files. Please be aware that all monitors display colour differently and the colour on a monitor could vary significantly from the final print. To ensure that the colour is correct, it is highly recommended that the client provides the Pantone colour and requests colour- matching service.
11. LOGO COLOUR
Logos will be sent in a choice of one colour background and black/white background. Watermarks and highlight covers include one colour choice only. To have the option of 2 or more colour choices an extra fee will apply.
12. DESIGN FILE TYPES

Please note that all drafts and logo options not confirmed will remain property of Ree Creative and are not be used online unless added onto the project at an additional charge.
13. ACHIEVED DESIGN WORK
Ree Creative archives design files for 6 months as a production process, however once final design files have been sent to the client it is the client’s responsibility to store and archive the documents safely for their own purposes or future use. Ree Creative is not responsible for sending lost or misplaced files. Additional charges will apply for resending files that have already been sent.
Please note that Editable Template links allow access to the original design files. Ree Creative holds no other saved design file for this service after approval. If for whatever reason the template is deleted or tampered with, the template will need to be recreated for 50% of the design fee. We suggest that the original template is duplicated on your Canva account to avoid the loss of original designs.
Each design package has a set number of design options and revisions. If further revisions are required there will be additional charges. The client will need to approve additional charges for extra design revisions and make payment in full prior to work commencing on the additional revisions. Ree Creative will not be responsible for revisions after final files are sent to the client.

Please enquire about the number of revisions relevant to your design. This is your responsibility to ask and extra fees may apply if exceeding the amount of revisions for your designs with Ree Creative. To ensure that no extra revisions are needed be added onto your project we ask that you provide us with clear and constructive feedback to achieve your desired look as well as a clear vision / brief at the start of the project.
15. DESIGN DRAFTS
All drafts, options and revisions not yet confirmed by the client remain property of Ree Creative. When posted on social platforms and utilised elsewhere (Print, Website etc) this is automatic confirmation that designs have been approved and further revisions will be charged additionally.
16. BUSINESS NAME (CHANGE OF BUSINESS NAME)
Prior to starting your design project with Ree Creative we ask that you take all the necessary measures to confirm your business name. Once payment has been confirmed and the design process has begun, any changes to the business name will incur a 100% logo design fee to redo designs with the new business name. If changing a logo on other branding, social media or web designs, revision fees will apply per design.
17. PROJECT APPROVAL
Whilst every care will be taken, no responsibility will be accepted by Ree Creative for errors found after final approval by the client (Spelling mistakes, misalignment etc). This includes change of mind. Artwork approval/confirmation must be emailed to Ree Creative before final files are sent or printing is commenced. Once final files have been sent additional fees will apply per revision requested.
It is the client’s responsibility to check all proofs carefully for accuracy. The client’s e-mail of approval is acknowledgement that the proof has been evaluated and considered correct in every aspect. There will be no remedy from Ree Creative for errors or omissions carried over from approved proof to final files and print.
1. PAYMENT & PROOF
Once we have received the printing payment and final artwork/design has been confirmed for print, your project will move into production. Changes cannot be made once final approval has been given. Proof Approval triggers the production process. Any changes or cancellations after final approval will incur additional charges.
2. FULL-COLOUR PRINTING
There may be some slight colour variations from what you have seen on screen to what the final product looks. There may also be some colour variations from product to product. This is due to the display of different monitors, the nature of printing and bulk-run printing systems. There will not be refunds or reprints at the expense of Ree Creative for colour variations in the full-colour printing process unless informed or discussed otherwise by Ree Creative. All of our prints are quality checked and will be reprinted if they do not meet Ree Creative standards.
3. PRINT ERRORS AND QUALITY ISSUES
Whilst all care is taken when printing, all third party printing errors and quality issues will be an issue of the third party and not Ree Creative after final approval of print designs are confirmed by the client. If the client is unsure about the quality of the cards being purchased it is their responsibility to request a sample pack to assess the quality themselves. (Sample packs available for $15 AUD) All printed products sent out by Ree Creative are quality checked by our team. If you receive your order your prints have been approved and are up to Ree Creative standard. Any prints that do not meet Ree Creative standard will be reprinted at no additional charge.
If for whatever reason you are still unhappy with the quality we will happily contact the third party print company on your behalf about any given issues, however we can make no promises that issues will get resolved without further costs. Ree Creative takes no responsibility to these extra costs.
4. PRINTING TURNAROUND
Standard printing turnaround is 10-14 business days (estimated) plus delivery. High quality business cards and additional printing options such as foiling, spot gloss, letterpress and square business cards may have an extended timeframe as these processes take longer to produce. Generally 14-20 business days (estimated) plus delivery from approval of design.
Please note: This delivery timeframe only begins once we have received FINAL proof approval from you to move forward with printing- NOT the day of enquiry or initial proof. This timeframe includes production and packing time. If your job is urgent, we highly recommend you to confirm the final proof ASAP to prevent delays.
Ree Creative is not liable for any extra shipping fee caused by an incorrect address. If you haven't provided a shipping address, please do so with your payment receipt.
While Ree Creative makes every effort to get your order to you as soon as possible, this delivery timeframe is in no way a promise or guarantee of delivery time. If there are any unforeseen delays or concerns with your order once posted (including the rare case of your order not arriving), Ree Creative is not liable as we have no control once it's with the Postal Service. The shipping fee is strictly non-refundable.
6. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS
Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be before bidding or buying.
