Who likes surprises?!
Not like, “an extra fry at the bottom of the bag” surprise… Like, a soda-spilled-everywhere scary movie surprise?
Giving a contract to a potential client is scary.
There’s the chance your client could have questions. Or worse, that she could give up on you and go to someone else. But what’s more devastating for your bottom line than losing a sale?
Losing your business. Without a contract, you’re setting yourself up for years of fighting refund requests and getting bullied by cheap clients.
Get the calligraphy contract template that solves problems like:
- Who owns the designs you create– and no, she’s not allowed to photocopy the logo you made and upload it to Vistaprint to print cheap menus, table numbers, etc.
- How to handle clients who never seem to remember when to approve those proofs, delaying your projects until you’re busy with another client (hellllooo 2 am infomercials, g’bye family)
- Re-doing an entire order for free because the bride was too cheap to pay for shipping insurance. Ya know, because “it’s not her fault the Post Office sucks”
As you can probably tell, everything in these contracts is brewed up from real-world situations. If you’re new to business, you don’t know what you’re likely to face. That’s why you’ll never have to with this template in your toolbox.
Between learning how to manage client orders, how many spare nibs to have on hand and why metallic envelopes arealways a bad idea, you have enough to worry about. Don’t let legal get in the way of running a business you love.
On average, purchasers save between 4-12 hours of duct-taping a contract together from scratch, or fixing up a janky friends’ hand-me-down contract. Pssst: that doesn’t include all the prayer time it takes to cross your fingers and hope nothing goes wrong– heaven forbid you actually need torely on your contract.
In ten minutes, you could be on your way to working with the first real client who respects you and your time.
