This is a rough estimate of time and costs for creating this project. Please note that this number is not a final total. Client’s final total will be based on the number of revisions, hours utilized and actual costs of assets. Any costs predicted to exceed this estimate will be agreed to by Client and Tag Grafx and will be billed at Standard Hourly Rate. US postage & 3rd party delivery is not guaranteed nor is Tag Grafx liable for.
This proposal is binding upon Tag Grafx and Client. Project won’t begin until proposal is approved, signed off on, and outlined deposit under “Schedule of Payment” is accepted unless otherwise agreed upon. This amount serves as a down payment for the project. It is applied directly to the total cost of the project. The information contained in this proposal is valid for thirty (30) days.

Change Orders: There will be a set point in the schedule for Client to make a reasonable amount of revisions. All revisions will be discussed thoroughly between Tag Grafx and Client to make sure that they are in-scope. Any out-of-scope changes will be estimated at the Tag Grafx's Standard Hourly Rate.
