HEAR YE, HEAR YE! These are the terms and conditions for all commissions.
Every commission Requires a $50 downpayment after confirmation. During the commission process, I will keep you constantly up to date regarding the progress of the commission, including pictures and explanations of what is going on. As always, I am ready for any questions/concerns you may have. But be aware that if you require any changes to the commission after A one week grace period, I will charge the $10 fee. That fee is only applicable to commission changes. If you cancel your commission after a week, you won't be charged a fee, but your $50 deposit will not be returned to you.
During shipping, since the art piece is out of my hands after I ship it, I cannot refund any damages sustained to the piece when it arrives to you. however, on my end I will take extra precautions to package your item carefully so that it can arrive to you in proper condition. In the unlikely event that it does not, I am open to recreating the piece or making a new one for you at a discounted price.
The sizes listed are the ones that I currently have in stock to work with. If you wish for a size i do not have, i will compute a price for you, adding in the charge of the size i had to purchase. This also goes for any paints or designs that I do not have in stock that you require. IF your commission calls for any colors or added designs that I do not currently have, i will let you know before making the purchase. Any outside purchased required by your piece will be added to the cost of the commission.
Payments for commissions will be made through paypal or venmo. Because it is a long, messy, and arduous process, I do not take check payments. I also will not meet with any buyers in person unless you are a legitimate business with a storefront location that is local to me (i.e., in the st. louis region). I also do not conduct buisness with any shipping agents or third party entities. I will not condone or consent to a deduction of payments for said agents to be made from the cost of the commission. I will also not meet with any third party entities in person. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
All the pieces are individually hand made and one of a kind and contains my signature. Plagiarism of my work will not be tolerated. Pictures of commissioned pieces will not be posted on my Instagram or any M. Patel Art Social Media pages without the customer's full consent. I will, of course, tag you in any pictures taken and posted of your commission if consent to do so is given.
This has been the Terms & Conditions. <3
commissions are priced by the materials required to make the commission, size of commission, nature of the commission, and the time it takes to make it. For this reason, my commissions do not have set prices because everyone requires something different and prices are variable.
As mentioned in the terms & Conditions, there is a $50 down payment, which will be returned to you if you decide to cancel the commission within a week after discussions. I do this because in the first week i have not yet started, so you have time to cancel or change your mind. after a week is over, i usually have all the materials and have started, so if you cancel after a week your deposit won't be returned to you.
Similarly, you have a week to decide if you want to change your mind about the commission. If you change your mind about a commission after a week (i.e., you order a 12 X 12 and then change it to a 7 X 11 after a week has passed) you will be charged a $10 fee. This fee will not be charged to you if you cancel after a week, only if you wish to change the direction of the project.
If your commission requires materials that i do not have in my inventory, i will add the cost of purchasing those materials to the total cost of your commission. I will inform you beforehand, during discussions, what i do and do not have so that you are fully aware of what you are getting into and can proceed accordingly. materials in this case can be anything from paints, canvases, paper sizes, frames, colored markers, ink, design materials such as glitter or stickers, etc.
I will add any and all charges to your receipt and email it to you before shipping your commission so that you can read over your charges and ask for clarification on the charges. I will also send you weekly pictures (or more if you require) of your commission so that you are fully aware of what is going on with your project. As a reminder, if you want to make a change to it, you are more than welcome to, but if you do so after a week you will be charged a $10 fee.
As mentioned in the terms & Conditions, all payments are to be made online via paypal or venmo. I do not take checks or cash unless you are an established business with an actual storefront in the St. Louis area.
Commissions are year round. You can message me on here, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter if you are interested in one. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
