12. Purchased Services
Our goal is to create an easy and client-friendly feedback process regarding our services. We strive to achieve excellence of our products, at the same time minimizing costs. With these purposes in mind we require that our Clients support each phase of the purchasing process with their approval (the process is described below). We provide proposals and quotes to our Prospects based on the information we receive from the Prospect in the inquiry. These proposals and quotes may be changed upon request for revision. Our standard delivery is carried out within 3 (three) weeks from the time of the service agreement is made (“Start Date”). Please note, that standard delivery time may vary under the influence of different factors, which depend on the Client, such as Client responsiveness and number and scale of necessary revisions. CRFTCREATIVE puts its best effort into ensuring delivery of services in timely manner, it does not give any promises or warranties to meet specific deadlines, unless otherwise specified in the agreement of “Express Delivery” (described below). In such cases clients must provide the deadlines before the Start Date. Only Express Delivery agreements expressed in writing are valid, so CRFTCREATIVE will not regard any oral statements made by its representatives as a guide for action.
In specific cases CRFTCREATIVE may carry out delivery of services within a shorter period of time (5(five) to 10 (ten) days). CRFTCREATIVE may perform such deliveries under certain circumstances, including provision of written approval and limitation of the amount of revisions. If a Client requests for a specific deadline after the Start Date, his or her request may or may not be satisfied, depending on availability of staff. Such requests are also subject to additional fees.
From initial request to delivering a completed project to the Client CRFTCREATIVE requires Client approval on each stage of the process. In case a Client requests a revision of the previously approved work, CRFTCREATIVE reserves the right to deny of this revision or perform the revision with extra fees and delivery time extension.
The Crftcreative’s Creative Process:
(i) Initial consultation and brief completion/ At this stage client need to approve the concept, visual style, characters, and voice artists/
(ii) Script development and visual concepts;
Included in the fee: minor revisions of illustration/animation concepts and character and multiple script revisions;
Additionally charged: significant revisions to concept, characters, illustration or animation style.
Included in the fee: up to 2 (two) revisions to characters, colors, objects or backgrounds.
Additionally charged: significant revision of illustration/animation, character appearance or request for a different artist for the project.
(iv) Voice recording;
Included in the fee: 1 (one) voice-over retake required due to poor sound quality, mistakes in pronunciation or failures of CRFTCREATIVE.

(v) Video Production;
Included in the fee: up to 2 (two) rounds of revisions of the following features: sound effects, animation timing, and/or volume.
Additionally charged: each subsequent round of revision of the above features exceeding the two-round limit.
Once the video is compiled, changes to animation may not be made.
We provide quotes based on the estimated scope of work that is clear from the Creative Brief Questionnaire filled by the Proposal. Our initial quotes do not guarantee final prices. CRFTCREATIVE reserved the right to deviate from the scope of services listed in the Creative Brief Questionnaire and the Invoice for Services. Substantial deviations may result in changes in the final price and/or delivery time. Pricing proposals are effective as of the date of creating and within a 30 (thirty)-day period of time since. CRFTCREATIVE may, at its sole discretion, change prices, but such changes by no chance shall affect previously approved with the Client Services.

Projects over $1000.00 must be pre-paid in the amount of 50% of the project cost upon placement of the order. The remaining balance due must be paid at the Illustration/Storyboard stage of project.
In most cases CRFTCREATIVE starts working on the project within a 24 (twenty-four)-hour scope upon receiving payment. Consequently, full refunds can be made only within the period of time specified above. Once the work on the project has started, no refunds will be made. Nevertheless, CRFTCREATIVE may, at its sole discretion, provide partial refunds in specific cases. In such cases a Client will receive a refund less administrative fees for the work done.
Under no circumstances will CRFTCREATIVE provide refunds for any purchases made 6 month prior to the request or earlier.
