Design Specifications

Designs are completed according to the specifications provided by the client on the Project Questionnaire Form, and initial discussions during the process of quoting your individual project – so please be as specific as possible on the form for your design requirements. Communication regarding your project is a two-way street and we want to provide you with a final product that you are 100% satisfied with.

Return to TOC

Estimated Time of Completion

An estimated time completion on your project is 30 business days from the date of full project payment made (this excludes weekends and US holidays).

30 business days is a rough estimation on the time frame – depending on the complexity of your individual request, the project may take a bit longer. We will give you an estimated completion time on your project at the time of your order. We strive to accomplish it sooner than that, however we do have a very active queue of work – and once payment is made, your project is placed in that queue for completion.  Our payment terms are 50% at the project start, upon execution of our agreement – with the remaining 50% balance due 10 days after completion of the project.

Design Process

The following are steps we take in your blog design or website design process once your project payment has been received:

  1. Development of the overall concept and layout of your design work, based on the specifications you have given to us in the Project Questionnaire Form you filled out. This phase may also require further communication with you to nail down all of the specifics or clarify anything we may have questions on.
  2. Creation of the custom style sheet (CSS) that makes up the foundation of the format and layout of your site design
  3. We will then provide you with the first live demo presentation of your custom theme on our development domain (not visible to the search engines). You will receive an email from us with that domain information so that you can review your design work. A maximum of two design presentations (the original plus one other, if needed) will be included at no extra cost to create the visual look and feel that is desired. The original design is created based on the specifications that you have provided to us in your Estimate Information Form, and our conversations. A second design can either build or expand upon the concepts presented, or you can request a completely different look than the one we originally presented.

It is important to know that we create your design based on the specifications you’ve provided to us (i.e. color scheme, number of columns in the layout, use of artwork/imagery,etc) – so it is important for you to be as specific as possible in your original request so that we are able to provide you with just the look you’re going for. Further revisions may incur additional fees.

  1. Upon review of your first live demo, we will revise and modify your site (if needed) based upon our discussion and review.
  2. After revisions are made, you will again receive an email from us with that domain information so that you can review your design work a second time.
  3. Once we have received final approval from you on your new theme – we will then install your custom theme on your host for you. After that is completed, we review the work with you and when you’ve given the final OK, we will invoice the final 50%  balance due.
  4. Minor updates and changes to your project are allowed for up to five (5) days from the completion of the blog design or website (this includes up to a half-hour per page total). Minor updates, changes, modifications and/or revisions to the blog design or website after the 5 day period will may incur additional fees.

Email consultation, for established client projects, is provided to you free of charge – Up to one hour of total general blog orientation and design consultation is included in the initial quote. Additional education and consultation is billed at our normal hourly rate.

Return to TOC

Requesting Changes

Any changes to the theme (beyond true bugs) after the approved, final product is launched on your site will incur additional fees. Minor changes will be considered without charge – we can talk about it at the time of implementation. Requested changes/modifications that were not included in the original quote will incur our hourly fee for completion.

Additional fees, after the final launch, will be incurred for future requests if:

  • Your theme breaks after an upgrade to the software you are using.
  • You add new plugins or features to your site that weren’t included in the original project
  • A new browser upgrade breaks your theme (i.e. a browser version that didn’t exist during the creation of your theme).
  • You’ve made changes or alterations to the code
  • Your site gets hacked, or otherwise compromised and you’ve lost your theme files due to a lack of backups

Use of Artwork

Use of any non-licensed imagery is the sole responsibility of the client. Clients who provide images to us for use in their project assume risk of liability for use of those images. When in doubt, contact the original artist of the image for permission before providing it for us to use in your design project.

In regards to custom graphic, template and logo work you’ve purchased through WebEndev (this refers to non-stock art, royalty free images from outside sources) – the rights for all works, templates, photographs, graphics and images that are created for your project by WebEndev, LLC remains the intellectual property of WebEndev.

You may use those images and renderings on your personal website, blog or home computer as long as proper copyright is noted. You may not alter, transform, or build upon those images in any way. These items are not licensed for commercial use, profit or redistribution – please contact us for information in regards to commercial licensing (ie: use for print advertising, t-shirts, merchandise, etc).

Software Licensing

It is the SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CLIENT TO OBTAIN PROPER LICENSING with use of any software program, unless a WebEndev provides you with a license (for example plugins).

Hosting Requirements

When clients contact us for WordPress (we build all sites exclusively on WordPress) installation and set-up, we assume that the client has already researched the requirements for running WordPress on their server. If necessary, contact your host to make sure that they can support the requirements stated in the WordPress documentation. Here is a link to WordPress, and the description of their requirements.

After spending the time to develop your site – WebEndev cannot be responsible if your hosting plan does not support WordPress. Refunds will not be made in the event that WebEndev finds that we cannot install the program on your account. The client is responsible for researching the requirements up front. If you have questions regarding your hosting environment, please be sure to ask us when you place your order – we can assist with making an evaluation on whether or not your hosting environment meets the minimum requirements to run WordPress.

WebEndev does provide hosting services that do meet the requirements for popular blogging platforms and CMS software – please inquire about those services if you require them.

Data Backup

Client assumes all responsibility for their files and templates. While we do our best to try to keep a back-up copy of your files, it is your responsibility to back-up your files and templates in case of emergency.

Return to TOC

Template Reuse

You are welcome to use the themes you purchase and we create for you to learn from and create additional themes on your site only.

When you purchase a site design from WebEndev – it is licensed for use on one domain only. The licensing of your template does not cover use on other domains and it is not available for redistribution or resale in any way. If you decide you’d like to use the theme on another, or several other, domains – please let us know and we will provide a quote on the additional licensing.

Our templates are not available for you to reuse, or resale, for profit in any way.

Return to TOC

Project Signoff

Once clients receive the notification that their project is complete – minor updates and changes to existing web site can be made for up to five (5) days prior to completion of the blog design or website (this includes up to a half-hour per page total), so please get back to us as soon as possible with any questions or minor modifications you may need.

Our reason for the 5-day window is simple: we have no way of knowing what modifications or changes were made to the template once we’ve released the product on the clients site, so please do let us know as soon as possible of any problems you come across so we can address them efficiently.

Additionally, because we develop your site in a live environment on a development domain on our servers – full testing in an optimal environment has already been done prior to final launch on your site. We do understand that not every environment is the same – to that end, we do schedule the final launch with you at a mutually agreed upon time that is convenient for both parties, so please be sure to schedule this time with us at a time that we are able to fully test it in your environment, with your content.
