• I will give you an estimated start date once I receive your order. The start date is when I will start on your design but I may be able to get to you much faster if I finish up quicker than expected on current projects or have cancellations. I currently have been averaging 2 & 1/2 weeks per design but it all depends on how many revisions you want and how long it takes to find any commercial graphics you require as well as my current client list.
  • Communication from client: If I do not hear from you for more than 10 days after my last email I will place your design on ‘hold’ if after another 5 days I still have not heard from you I will cancel your design. No refunds will be given.
  • Half of the package price is required to hold your spot in line & the second half of your package price plus any graphics/images that were purchased is due upon installation. No refunds are given at any time, no exceptions (unless I need to cancel the project),  due to the digital nature of the work. Please make sure you wish to hire me before you pay your deposit! If you are unhappy with the work please communicate this to me before installation & I’d be happy to work with you until you are satisfied.
  • I limit your revisions to 3 per item (3 header revisions, 3 blog button revisions, 3 sidebar title revisions, 3 navigation button revisions, etc.) before additional charges apply.
  • Prior to installation it is the client’s responsibility to back up & save their website/blog and any affiliated programs (this includes but is not limited to: Google Analytics codes, feedburner information, all photos & posts/content, all email-if you use an email address that is associated with your domain name, and any login & passwords). Creative Kristi Designs & it’s owner are not responsible for any lost work, photos, emails or any other related programs, codes or information as a result of a design installation and/or move to a different site/host/domain.
  • After work is complete (and installed if applicable) I am available to make changes for one week ONLY. If you need revisions please e-mail me before then otherwise I can not do it. If you still require a revision I would be happy to make you a new one for a reduced price but it may be awhile since I’d have to work you in. Please remember this and look over all finished work within that one week time-frame so that I may quickly edit & send you a new version.
  • You will have all finished, flattened work in your media section of your blog (Self-hosted wordpress) or a draft post (blogger) for permanent storage & quick retrieval should you delete your design/images accidentally. Additional files will be provided upon request at the time of installation if they do not violate these terms & conditions and are appropriate to the needs of the client. Creative Kristi Designs reserves the right to deny clients a copy of individual design elements on a case by case basis.
  • Unless you pay for a logo design (this differs from header) the copyright to your design remains with me. All additional design work must be done by me or express written permission must be obtained from me for another designer (or yourself) to create additional items with pieces/images/parts of your design (example: business cards, facebook pages, twitter pages, printed materials, etc.)
  • I require you to have a clickable link to this website (creativekristidesigns.com) in your footer for all design work with the words: “Header (or button, or whatever it is I designed for you) design by: Creative Kristi Designs” for the entire time that the work (whole or in part) is used/displayed on your site.
  • WordPress & Blogger themes: The copyright of the theme belongs to theme creator. Creative Kristi Designs’ terms of service requires that all parts of the blog design remain intact. Clients may not alter, change, sell, share, move or copy any part of the design elements in whole or in part. The purchase of blog design or any service offered is meant to be used for single project on a single URL-unless express written consent is given by Creative Kristi to client. The client is granted a license to display the work, but Creative Kristi Designs retains the ownership of the design. Clients may not copy the template, code or elements and/or transfer them to another blog, website or online format of any kind.
  • Creative Kristi Designs owns a developer license for the Genesis Framework and StudioPress premium themes. They are only licensed to be used on Creative Kristi Designs client sites. Clients may not use the Genesis Framework or premium theme if they are no longer a Creative Kristi Designs client and remove the design installed by Creative Kristi Designs. The framework and theme must be surrendered when my work is removed. No derivative works of copyrighted property will be permitted. If a client removes any part of the design, client must completely start over and choose a new standard WordPress theme (and uninstall the Genesis Framework).
  • Clients are welcome to provide their own photos or purchase royalty-free (stock) images themselves provided that they are responsible for complying with license agreement(s) and photography copyrights. Neither Kristi nor Creative Kristi Designs will be liable for photos or design elements provided by the client. Client is responsible for complying with U.S. Copyright Law – even if the client lives outside the U.S. Failure to comply may result in legal action.
  • Creative Kristi Designs will not copy another designers work. If you want an exact replica of a website/blog (in whole or in part) you’ve seen online or in print then I suggest you contact & hire the original designer. I am happy to create a custom look for you with the ‘feel’ of a site you like but refuse to infringe on another’s copyright.
  • These terms & conditions apply to all design work including premades & winners of giveaways.

Thank you!
