the small print

Here is everything that you need to know before entering into an agreement with me.
This small print aims to clarify details, smooth the process and protect us both.
If you have any questions please just ask.


All information supplied by you in whatever form, will be kept confidential and will not be
passed on or sold to any other bodies. You are respectfully requested to treat all details of
our agreement and correspondence in the same manner.


Our initial discussions and the following meeting to present my ideas carry no charge.
It’s all part of the service!
(There are some exceptions, for example, if the work is part of a competitive tendering
process or if lengthy travel is involved. Any fees will be agreed beforehand.)
Next, your chosen design is worked up. This may involve technical drawings, illustrations,
models, accurate costings, sourcing materials etc. A nominal fee is charged for this service
and will be deducted from the overall cost on completion of your commission.


An advanced payment of 50% is required before work begins. The remaining amount is
payable on completion.

time scale

Each commission is different and many factors need to be taken into account, availability
of materials, current work and scheduled projects, if the piece is needed for a particular
occasion etc. Once all of the designs are completed an estimated schedule will be outlined
and agreed upon.


I deliver all pieces personally to make sure that you are completely happy.
It’s very rewarding for me to see the work in place along with your reaction!
Overseas delivery is possible. Please contact me for details.
