These Terms and Conditions can be read at any time on The Business Toolkit’s website.
Paying for the service/s and/or product/s will be understood as the acknowledgement and understanding of all terms and conditions.
This binds the client to accept our terms and conditions.
The Business Toolkit Terms & Conditions are what govern the job, not any presumed conditions on the customer’s purchase order.
Charges/Costs/Monetary exchange for design services to be provided by The Business Toolkit will be set out in an invoice that is provided to the customer via email.

The formats are as follows: .PNG, .JPG, .PDF, .EPS, .AI/.PSD
Charges for Other Services
Charges for any additional services requested (including revisions that have exceeded upon agreement) during the project that are over and above the estimated time or out of scope, will become fully payable (100% of the invoiced amount) at the time of estimate or quotation acceptance.
