By using the Studio’s services, the Client accepts and agrees to be bound by the terms and provision of this agreement.
The Studio will give a quotation to the Client after receiving their request. All given quotations will be valid for the entire duration of the project unless the Client decides to change the original brief. If the Client’s final order changes from the original specification made for the quotation, the Studio reserves the right to vary the quotation accordingly to the updates.
Orders for work must be confirmed in writing to the Studio by the Client.
The Client must provide the Studio with all information about the project what the Studio may need to perform the assigned work. The Client agrees that the Studio is not liable for any delay in services that result from inaccurate information on the part of the Client.

The Studio reserves the right to refuse to accept any order.
All turnaround times quoted are based on working days only. The Studio’s normal working hours are Monday through Friday, 9am to 6pm (GMT+3).
The Studio guarantees to meet quoted turnaround times only if the Client’s files and brief are delivered on time.
