Rights / Ownership

All rights for artwork and design files released to client upon full payment of project. Please let us know if you need certain files / file types.

Invoicing & Payments

50% Deposit must be received before work is started. 
Printed items $500+ must be paid for upon pickup (or upon ordering when shipped to your location)

All other invoices are net 15 days. 

No refunds.  

Any deposits made and not used within 2 years are expired.

Invoicing is either per project or monthly, depending on your preference and scope of work. Any per project work that extends over 3 months may require additional payments to be made during the course of the project (multiple deposits rather than 50% up front and final payment at end).

Late Fees

Any invoice not paid within 30 days will be charged a 10% late fee every 30 days past due


Per project pricing – 50% of invoice is due before the start of any project. Deposit amount is calculated based on the original estimate, which may be a range of hours depending on your project type.

Final balance due prior to completion of project (uploading website to live server, sending print items to printer, or providing digital files)

Recurring customers will be transferred to monthly billing after first project (hourly, billed at the end of each month)

No refunds.

If a project is canceled and the number of hours spent does not equal the deposit paid, a credit will be applied to your account for a future graphic design project. 


Quotes are valid for 90 days. After 90 days we will need to re-quote the project. Estimates may include a range of hours possible for your project.

Incomplete Projects

Any project that remains in proofing or is put on hold while we wait for content for more than 30 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.


Lara J Designs is not liable for the legality of content provided by customers. We create custom graphic design projects based on the information provided by clients. By submitting your content to us for design you are confirming that you are the legal owner of the provided content (text, images, drawings, ideas, etc.).

Furthermore, Lara J Designs is not liable for any designs that are not legally approved (Copyright, Trademark, FDA, Department of Agriculture, etc). The submission of approval for all designs is the responsibility of the client.

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.

Policy Agreement

All Lara J Designs clients must agree to the following policies and procedures before the start of your beautiful new project! Thank you for your business :)
