WordPress Security Maintenance
Lara J Designs WordPress Security Maintenance – $20/month/website
If you don’t want the hassle with WordPress software/plugin updates, we are more than happy to do that for a fee of $20 per month, per site. This service will include:
– BackupBuddy on-hosting backups or set up a dropbox backup for them (If you are on WPEngine hosting backups will be done through their system)
– WordPress Update & Plugin Update Management
– 15 minutes of WordPress phone support per month
We bill your credit card for $20 per site, on the first of each month beginning on that date.

**Does not include technical support caused by hosting issues**
Deposit must be received before work is started.
Printed items $500+ must be paid for upon pickup (or upon ordering when drop-shipped)
All other invoices are net 15 days
Any invoice not paid within 30 days will be charged a 10% late fee every 30 days past due
50% of invoice is due before the start of any project. Final balance due prior to completion of project (uploading website to live server, sending print items to print, or providing digital files)
Quotes are valid for 90 days. After 90 days we will need to re-quote the project
Credit Card Fees
Credit cards are always accepted, but a 2.5% credit card processing fee will be added. Please let us know if you would prefer to pay via credit card and we will add this to your invoice so you may pay via the link in the invoice email. Checks may be mailed to 12 S Erwin Street, Suite 2, Cartersville, GA 30120.
Proofs & Printed items
Please read over your proof carefully to avoid any errors (spelling, wrong contact information, etc) on print items. We will not send anything to print without an emailed or signed approval to a proof. Your email/signature releases Lara J Designs from all responsibility for errors and omissions on a print item. If the item has already been sent to print, Lara J Designs cannot stop production. If you need to have an item reprinted because of an error, we will be happy to do that, but you will be charged the full print cost for the second print, as your proof approval signifies release to print.
Any project that remains in proofing or is put on hold while we wait for content for more than 20 business days will be put on hold and will be billed for any time spent up to that point. When the client is prepared to restart the project, time will be billed per hour from then until completion.
