Making a Graphic Design Contract

  • What is a Graphic Design Contract?

    A Graphic Design Contract enables graphic designers to get in writing the terms of their arrangements with a client. With the appropriate details, this legal contract may help to limit the volume of disputes in the future. Whether you're working on a logo, signage, a website or another creative project, you can use this document record style guidelines, establish a timeline for deliverables and to outline terms of payment. Unlike many other sites you might come across, there is a lot more that Rocket Lawyer offers besides templates. If the client refuses to pay or there is another problem, your Premium membership provides the optional benefit of Document Defense® support from an On Call attorney.

  • Should a freelance graphic designer always make a contract for graphic design services?

    Whether your graphic design business is new or many years old, it's critical to keep track of your design work with a contract. The following list of benefits may be helpful for you to know:

    • There are no surprises about how long the engagement lasts
    • The graphic designer and client both understand the scope of their responsibilities
    • Both parties know when invoicing will happen

    A few unfavorable outcomes from not signing this document might include confusion on timing, unwieldy changes in scope, and underpayment, among other potential concerns.

  • What details should a Freelance Graphic Design Contract cover?

    The details needed for the Graphic Design Contract are:

    • Name and address of your client
    • What fees will be charged and when
    • What the duration of the engagement is
    • What tasks you are committed to performing

    As you may expect, Graphic Design Contracts made with Rocket Lawyer also include the standard legalese regarding the independent work relationship between the parties, confidentiality, indemnity for losses, and finally, the method(s) of dispute resolution. While making your agreement, you'll also have the ability to pick its state of jurisdiction. Using the document tool, you have the power to add further custom edits, as needed.

  • Can I prepare my own graphic design contract template online for free?

    All Rocket Lawyer document templates are drafted and vetted with care by lawyers and legal staff, which means that you can feel confident when using them to manage legal matters. To start, simply tell us a bit more about the engagement in a step-by-step interview, and we'll handle the rest. You can also try having your document reviewed by a lawyer in our nationwide attorney network prior to signing it. This method will often end up being much less expensive and less time-consuming than finding and working with the average attorney, whose fees could range anywhere between hundreds of dollars to thousands.

    If you've got any particular questions or hesitations before you begin, connect with a lawyer today. You might also like to browse our entire collection of business documents.

  • Is anything else required after a Graphic Design Contract is made?

    In order to finalize the drafted contract, it must be signed by both you and the client. You might like to use RocketSign® to collect signatures electronically. Make sure that everyone gets a copy of the fully executed contract. With a Rocket Lawyer membership, you also will be able to download it as a Word or PDF file, print it out, and copy it when needed.

  • Would Rocket Lawyer be able to check my Graphic Design Agreement?

    Depending on who is contacted, some lawyers will not even agree to review your document if they didn't write it. An easier approach worth consideration is to go through Rocket Lawyer attorney services. With a Premium membership, you have the ability to ask for feedback from an On Call attorney with experience in business or get answers to additional questions related to your Graphic Design Agreement. Rocket Lawyer is here to support you.
