The total cost ("Total Cost") for all Services is U.S. dollars, due in full within 15 days of the Invoice Date.
If the accepted Design Estimate is over $1,000, 50% of the total is due prior to the Services beginning. The Services will only be added to the Designer's schedule once the deposit payment is made.
