This week's survey

(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)

Last Week's Survey 

Do you produce artwork or layout without taking a deposit?  
  • Rarely. don't have time to do artwork for non go ahead jobs. I like to see some sort of commitment from the customer first.
  • Yes we do but lock the PDF and put our name in the artwork
  • I never use to, but now I do, I now call it a Commitment instead of a deposit. No commitment no Artwork. All artwork remain my property until full payment is made, if the client needs a proof for approval it will be supplied as a low resulotion bitmap only.
  • Generally no we don't however it is also dependent upon the size of the job, client reputation and size. The larger the client the bigger the expectation and we will only provide rough outlines and low resolution image renders.
  • generally no - occasionally there are exceptions
  • No. without deposit we don't do anything. we find it when we ask for deposit they take us more serious. by the way we have to pay the bills as well.
  • yes, very rarely take on a job where artwork creation is necessary prior to the quote being accepted.
  • Seldom, and only for existing clients.
  • No. Why spend the time when the "client" can then use your artwork to get other quotes
    (Brian Pretorious - Pretorian BMC)
  • Yes frequently, and most people in the trade are very honest and upfront.In large quotes we feel we need to show how we will use sheet and often customer's artwork is so poor that we have to show what it is that we are quoting to produce. However,sometimes we are asked to re quote jobs several times in different materials which we do only to find that our quotes and artwork are used openly to get better quotes from other companies some of whom simply say they will quote 10% less than us if customer receives quote from us.....AND sometimes our own artwork and samples come back to us for quoting!!! Sometimes people asking for detailed quotes are in our own industry and asking for quotes that they will use as their own quotes. These people are in our own industry!!! not shy of wasting our time and abusing the fact that we have set up our systems to return quotes promptly and honestly. We therefore sympathize with those that are cheated when trying to do the fair thing when those who cannot appreciate that time and intellectual property are being stolen and can only say that those who operate like this can not understand that the skills we use, improve each time we produce work honestly, are skills they have yet to master...perhaps they will always be too busy taking shortcuts and cheating others that the basis of their own operation is shonky, bereft of skills and lacking honesty which will show itself in all aspects of their work.
    (Jana Vale - Lasermade)
  • We do if it is a long term customer that usually proceeds with orders otherwise we charge.
    Linda Wilcox - Wilcox Safety & Signs)
  • Intellectual property is more valuable than an actual item so why do people within this industry find it necessary to provide proofs to people they do not even know for FREE just to win a job. If you go to a graphic design firm do you think they would do a design and supply it to you for free. I think NOT! If there are still sign companies out there providing designs and proofing for free to one off clients or people that they don't have contracts with then you need to rethink your business strategy and structure. You are only devaluing your own skills and cheapening this industry.
  • Yes, but only once we have done a quote for a job.
  • Most of the artwork that comes to the company is pretty well print ready or it made need a couple of minor adjustments so therefore its not worth charging. If we had to construct artwork we would charge the client instalments before proceeding and final payment before handing it over, everything is paid before leaving the factory.
  • Sometimes we have to, particularly with laser or router cut signage you need the design approved to be able to properly cost.
  • As a general rule no but there are always exceptions. However if I know they are getting other quotes then no we won't supply artwork without deposit
  • If it is a regular customer, no, we do not charge a deposit unless it is a very large job. If it is a new customer we seek verification of bona fides and if a large job then we may seek a deposit.
  • Are you serious....deposit for layout and artwork?
    I think you will find is many country areas we don't even charge for layouts or art work!
    I know that I don't, nor do any other signies in this town. I did try a few years ago but the customers complained bitterly and went elsewere.
    Nar...doesn't happen here!
  • Never, 50% deposit up front always, unless regular customer. Or it will be shopped around to all in the trade and china.
  • unless it is an established client, I NEVER do any artwork until the quote is accepted & a 'permission to proceed' agreement form is signed by the customer.
    Otherwise you will end up doing a lot of free artwork for people.
  • Yes, but only for established clients. If they are new, then deposit needs to be put up, unless it is simple & they are actually in the workshop with us. But I would give them nothing they can take away.
  • Depends on the client. No previous sales history with client, deposit required before any artwork is produced. small sales history, minor drafts, low quality versions before deposit is received.Long term clients receive better services again.
    (Warren Van Den Heuvel - Pure Image Signs)
  • Businesses that provide artwork to prospective clients with out any deposit or financial committments obviously are desperate for work or don't have a good business sense. By doing so you are just continuing to help devalue the sign industry.
  • No. We used to do artwork without charge until we realized that agencies were using us for their proof services but going on price.
    (Kevin -
  • We don't do anything until we have an official order form. For existing customers, our terms state we reserve the right to charge for setup if an order is cancelled and/or the artwork is changed. For new customers, it's cash with order.
  • I do produce artwork without a deposit. I believe it helps. But I usually fax the artwork so client does not have the electronic version. I get caught a few times, but not enough to worry. Email quotes and proofs are a nightmare. You lose a job for a few dollars and they have the artwork and ideas you give.
  • We do not produce any artwork without a deposit. It is our most valuable asset the 20 years experience that we put into it and the others do not have
    When we did we lost the customer forever they go with our artwork to somebody that only knows how to copy and reproduces it at a cheap cost and we loose the order. Of course they got the idea artwork for free and they do not need to charge for it
    (Jose - Visual Link)
  • Yes, but I think we should change that. Under the current economic climate I believe it is too risky not to take any deposit before commencing work. when ordering on line you must pay before your goods are dispatched and I know from experience, more and more business are following the same pattern. I believe it safeguards business being done by dodgy people.
    (Ans - Alpha Print Group)
  • No, only after receipt of a 50% deposit. We changed our policy last year and it has dramatically reduced wasted time (and time wasters). If everyone did the same so customer expectations changed, our industry would be much better off.
