Terms of Business

The following covers the key points of our terms of business, but is not exhaustive.

1. Standard payment terms:

28 days after handover of high resolution PDF files to your printer. The high resolution PDF files remain the property of TA Design Ltd until paid for in full.

If, once started, we deem a project to have been on hold (essentially inactive) for over one month, TA Design Ltd reserves the right to invoice for work to date, for immediate payment.

If, once started, a project schedule slips by more than two months, TA Design Ltd reserves the right to institute and/or revise any stage payment schedule, as we feel to be reasonable and appropriate.

2. Ownership

All digital files created or revised by TA Design Ltd, remain the property of TA Design in perpetuity. All work remains the intellectual property of TA Design Ltd in perpetuity, unless separately agreed.

TA Design produces high resolution PDF files for the client and their printer as the final deliverable. All underlying files (e.g. InDesign, Quark, Photoshop, Illustrator) remain the property of TA Design Ltd and are not released to anyone.

We are happy to release high resolution PDFs and high resolution digital images to clients, after payment in full has been received.
