Is there a deposit?
Yes, a 50% non-refundable deposit is due before the project can begin.
What's the basic process?
First, we discuss the parameters of the illustration. Once we come to an understanding, an estimate is made and approved. Next, the deposit must be paid and sketches are sent which will be adjusted according to the notes received. The final payment is due once the final illustration is approved.
