1. Payment
Full payment on all invoices is due within 30 days of the date of the invoice. A late payment fee of $50 will be applied to all overdue balances for each 30 day period the payment is past due. If a partial payment is made towards the total balance due, a $50 partial payment fee will be applied. This fee will be applied to each partial payment until the invoice has been paid in full. Please note: Partial payments & late payments may be made without additional charges when arranged in advance. Any rights of use granted by this agreement are conditioned upon receipt of full payment of all invoices relating to the job. No design concept may be used by the Client before full payment is made to New Expression, unless other arrangements have been made in advance. A deposit to begin work is based upon 50% of the estimated total project. Deposits are nonrefundable, unless specified otherwise in writing.

2. Changes
The Client shall be responsible for making additional payments for changes they request in the original assignment and/or information provided. However, no additional payment shall be made for changes required to conform to the original assignment and/or information provided. The client is responsible for final proof reading of all materials.

3. Unusual Time Demands
New Expression shall not be expected to produce work for regular rates at irregular hours, weekends, or holidays. Rush job/overtime rates will apply to design work and other services which are produced outside normal working hours when requested/required by the Client.

4. Expenses
Client shall reimburse New Expression for all expenses arising from this assignment (i.e. FedEx, long distance phone calls, etc.).

5. Cancellation
In the event of cancellation of this assignment, ownership of all copyrights and the original artwork (and any electronic copies of artwork) are retained by New Expression and a cancellation fee for work completed and expenses already incurred, shall be paid by the Client. Any fees prepaid by the Client will not be refunded. The Client waves any rights to the use of design concepts produced up to the point of cancellation.

6. Ownership of Design Solutions
Unless specified otherwise in writing, New Expression retains ownership and copyright of all original work, both preliminary and final. The Client automatically has limited rights to use the design solution chosen (as described on the invoice) - but only after full payment is made. New Expression will retain all rights to all design solutions rejected by the Client.

6a. Rights of Use
The client is free to use the work in the specific way(s) originally contracted for, but "unlimited rights" have not been granted to the client unless specified in writing.

6b. Logo Designs
The client will be responsible (but not obligated to) trademark the chosen design. If limited rights are desired - the client is free to refer to the logo on the contracted work as their trademark. If additional applications are required in the future - the client is required to make these arrangements with New Expression — this includes reprints of the original order. If unlimited use is desired by the client, a fee agreed upon by both parties shall be paid to New Expression in exchange for such rights. Please ask us for additional information outlining logo design for further information.
