My Houston Pro Terms and Conditions
Please Take Your Time & Read It
• PROJECT ESTIMATES •
My Houston Pro will make every effort to be as accurate and complete as possible in our project estimates. In order to write an accurate estimate, we must know the exact specifications the job entails. In some cases, a range estimate will be given, based on knowledge of project at the time. Minor revisions are anticipated, but major design/content changes may go beyond the scope of the estimate. The client’s approval will be obtained for any increases in fees or expenses that exceed the original estimate by 10%. Final fees and expenses will be detailed in our invoices. Estimates are valid for 15 days from date of estimate.
• PRICE MATCH •
My Houston Pro will offer you a 5% discount on top of your invoiced price from another competitor, you simply forward or send me the invoice so I can view what's included and what your paying for, please make sure it includes the material type, warranty, design cost, turn around time, and any additional information that is necessary to complete your project. We will beat all Print Shops, Wrap Shops, Sign Shops in the Houston and Surrounding Areas.
• GRAPHIC & PRINTING DESIGN SERVICES •
All artwork created by My Houston Pro, remains property of My Houston Pro, unless you are buying the design master files. You are not allowed to take our "mock ups" or designs to another company for printing without our written consent form being summited and the order created for the master files.
» 1. Dimensions: At least 300 DPI » 2. Color Mode: CMYK » 3. Units: Inches » 4. Cut lines » Bleeds - A bleed is anything being printed that extends beyond the cut lines. Bleeds are necessary whenever you want something to extend beyond the trim edge, leaving no white margin. » Outline text - This is a pretty basic rule when it comes to design, but it is often overlooked. Since there’s no way to ensure that a print shop will have all the fonts you use in your design, it’s best to make sure any text used is converted to outlines.
• APPROVALS •
The client will be ultimately responsible for final approval of all comps, including the checking of typos and misspellings. Along with image quality and color matching *if required. It is important to make all final corrections before the project either goes to the printer to avoid delays and additional fees. My Houston Pro will not be held liable for any work that has received final approval. You can request a pantone color in person, bring your color you'd like to match, an additional fee may apply depending on the work you are getting done. No additional changes can be made after you reply "Approve for Printing" or " I Approve".
• PAYMENTS •
50% of the estimated project cost before work begins and the remaining 50% upon project completion. Your Deposit can not be reimbursed or moved to a new project. All Payments are Final. There are no reprints after approving your final design, There are no refunds, returns, exchanges, money back guarantee, etc.
• LATE PAYMENTS •
Your balance is due immediately after the completion of the installation, it's not due upon pick up of your property or after upper management verifies the work. A $35 late fee will be added to your invoice for any payment received after 7:00PM CT Time on the day of your installation or completion of your project. If you would like to let the upper management verify the work, you could simply request a 24hr payment delay for an additional $20 that will be added to your invoice.
• $50 WRAP DEPOSIT •
If you are getting a Vehicle Wrap or Food Truck/Trailer Wrap we have a special $50 design fee. We will design your wrap and allow you to make changes, after you approve the design you can then pay the 50% deposit for the project, this gives you a chance to start the project for $50 vs the immediate 50% deposit. This fee is non-refundable.
• CANCELLATION FEES & DEPOSITS •
In the event of cancellation of a project, the ownership of all copyrights and original artwork, including sketches, PDF files of layouts, and any other mockups, shall be retained by My Houston Pro. Any usage by the client of any of the project elements will result in appropriate legal action. A $50 cancellation fee shall be paid by the client in addition to the following.
The cancellation fee is as follows:
1. Deposit and All Payments are Non-Refundable, and All Sales Are Final
(i/e; You begin a project and pay the initial deposit and we have yet to begin the design work, and then decide you no longer want the work done)
2. 50% of total project fee for preliminary work, concepts, or comps;
(i/e; You begin a project and pay the initial deposit, and we do any graphic design work, but then you decide you no longer want the work done)
3. 75% of total project fee after preliminary work but before completion
(i/e; You begin project, approve design, we do the printing, but we have not yet installed it, and you decide you no longer want the work done)
4. 100% of total project fee for completed work regardless of final approval.
(i/e; The installation is complete but you are unsatisfied with the final result for what ever reason, you would still need to pay the remaining balance and then make a claim immediately after your invoice has been paid in full)
• PERMITS •
My Houston Pro does not provide any type of permits, permits are only required if they are electrical signs or if you are located in certain areas. You may want to contact Houston Sign Administration or Harris County Sign Permitting. They can assist you with a permit, being that you are the business owner you don't need a special license to obtain it. You can then purchase a sign and complete the installation yourself or we can do it once you have your permit or can install without one. We will not be responsible if you are fined or have to remove your signs, the removal process will have an additional cost. For window graphcis certain areas in the city of Houston will only allow up to a 20% area to be used for advertising, so a full window coverage is not available to all.
• TURN AROUND TIMES •
All turn around times are estimated and are not guaranteed, unless you have an order with paid rush production included in your invoice.
Any delay in the completion of a project due to external forces beyond our control (such as unusual transportation delays, unforeseen problems at a vendor site, computer/Internet related issues, holidays, bad road conditions, Acts of God, etc.), or actions and negligence of the client (i.e., content delivery delays), shall entitle My Houston Pro to extend the completion/delivery date, upon notifying the client, by the time equivalent of such a delay without penalty. Turn Around Times Do Not Include Your Design Time, Installation or Delivery.
