Production pricing includes a review of each piece by the production floor manager and production manager. Prices are based off of the labor time involved and are presented in per piece prices to the client, with the additional related fees. All prices are agreed to prior to any work starting, and do not change once contracted, unless there is a design change by the client. Payment terms for pre-production are due in full, and production fees are paid with a 50% deposit, and 50% COD, upon contractual signing.
