Terms and Conditions

The following Terms and Conditions of Service apply to all products and services provided by Sktched Marketing (www.sktched.com) and in the event of any dispute are governed by the laws of India.

All work is carried out by Sktched Marketing on the understanding that the client has agreed to our terms and conditions.

Copyright is retained by Sktched Marketing on all design work including words, pictures, ideas, visuals and illustrations unless specifically released in writing and after all costs have been settled.

If multiple options for a design is presented and one is chosen for your project, only that solution is deemed to be given by us as fulfilling the contract. All other design options remain the property of Sktched Marketing, unless specifically agreed in writing

Project Acceptance

At the time of proposal, Sktched Marketing will provide the customer with a written estimate or quotation by email. These Terms and Conditions can be read at any time on the Sktched Marketing website which can be found at www.sktched.com.

A copy of the written estimate or quotation is to be signed and dated by the customer to indicate acceptance and should be returned to Sktched Marketing.

Alternatively, the client may send an official purchase order in reply to the estimate or quotation which binds the client to accept our terms and conditions, or an email acknowledging acceptance of the quotation.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Sktched Marketing Terms & Conditions are what govern the job, not any conditions on the customer’s purchase order.

Design Charges

Charges for design services to be provided by Sktched Marketing will be set out in the written estimate or quotation that is provided to the customer. At the time of the customer’s signed acceptance of this estimate or quotation, indicating acceptance of the Terms & Conditions, a non-refundable payment of 50% of the quoted fee will become immediately due.

Unless agreed otherwise with the Client, all design services require an advance payment of a minimum of fifty (50) percent of the project quotation total before the work commences or is supplied to the Client for review. The remaining fifty (50) percent of the project quotation total will be due upon completion of the work prior to upload to the server or release of materials.

Charges for Other Services

Charges for any additional services requested during the project that are over and above the agreed scope of work, will become fully payable (100% of the quoted amount) at the time of estimate or quotation acceptance.


The customer will be provided with an Approval Form or Proof Email, and an Invoice prior to final publication. At this time the remainder of the amount due will become payable and the customer will also be required to sign and return the Approval Form or signify approval by email to Sktched Marketing.
