Graphic Design, Digital and Print Ads, Logos and Commercial Document Projects

As a digital creative marketing agency, you are responsible for providing us with all artwork corrections for your projects. Please note that it makes good sense to check your designs (and spelling) before print approval – corrections or modifications made after the approval/proofing stage will incur extra charges, as we need to make design changes and repeat the entire pre-press process to incorporate the new files.

In summary, Paul Boakye Associates Limited and our artists have done everything possible to make the artwork and files perfect. However, Paul Boakye Associates Limited and it’s designers/affiliates are not responsible for its final approval, so please be sure to check all copy, dimensions and colour separations.

It is up to the client to do their due-diligence to check and test the site before the approval and launch of their new website.

Any and all website related changes, questions, updates and support issues outside this 30-day post-launch window will be billed at our normal hourly rate of $95/hour (Our hourly rate is subject to change without written notice). If you are likely to require any additional website support, it is highly recommended that you sign-up for an ongoing website support plan through one of our staff members.
