What is needed for work to begin:
Score or source document
Specific Deadline. We do not work on a "get to it when you can" schedule. Specific deadlines will help eliminate
many misunderstandings. Also, we are very fast, but the deadlines must be realistic.
Phone numbers – Home, Cell, Pager – This is very important!! If we have questions, we need to be able to reach you.
Written confirmation of instrumentation, page size, deadlines, various and sundry details relating to this specific
project, and exactly what you are expecting.
Each project will have many considerations that are specific to the work you want done. We will need to talk either
in person or by phone to discuss the details. At this point, we can make an estimate and begin work with a 50% deposit.
When work is completed, you will receive proofs, your original, and final products. You will also receive an invoice
for the total fee less your initial deposit. The invoice is payable upon receipt.
