Included within your Terms of Business:
What do the levels mean?
Your documents and support options are explained here >
Which level should I choose?
If in doubt choose a lower level. You can upgrade later to a higher level to extend your support period or get more flexibility on where you can edit your documents
What do I get in the support period?
You get access to unlimited support in the KoffeeKlatch Facebook customer group.
You get access to updates and additional material at no additional charge during your support period
You get access to our growing library of support material in the ‘KoffeeKlatch zone’ designed to help you manage clients comfortably using your legal documents as a positive tool.
Who writes these documents?
These documents are written by our team of business and legal experts and then reviewed by key customers to check they reflect the way you work today.
Are all the levels editable?
The Booking and Data Processing forms are designed to help you collect and gather the information that is unique to your contract with your client.
The main agreement can be modified by using the appropriate forms in the Booking form.
If you have an established business model and want to edit the main agreement, or add it in html format to your website, you will need to purchase or upgrade to Premium level.
Why do you lock down the other levels?
Most legal templates are sold without support and advice being included. If you go to a legal team for advice it will cost you hundreds of pounds. We are able to include advice within your purchase by having a streamlined document system where we know what terms you are on and where to find any changes you have made. Without that, we could not offer advice and support. People come for the contracts but stay for the training, advice and support. Few people go into business understanding all the issues your contracts cover – and the law itself changes regularly. By having a standardised format, we can easily update you on what has changed, train you, advise you, and prepare the help you need within the group – all at a price few legal teams could offer.
Will my documents make me compliant?
Your documents will help you comply with your legal obligations (and give yourself some extra protection and advantages too). They are designed to go along side good practise and an understanding of your rights and obligations. If you do not work in accordance with the options set out on the documents, or make changes to the documents that reduce your rights or increase your obligations, you will not be compliant.
Why can’t I remove the KoffeeKlatch copyright claim from my documents?
Our documents remain our copyright. We assign to you a right to use them in accordance with our terms. The copyright claim is there to alert other people who may think of using them that they need to contact us before using our copyright material.
What is the difference between Global and UK options?
If both you and your client are in the UK, the UK version is fine. You can add in what you need for Scotland or NI. If either of you is not in the UK you need the global version. See here for more information >
Can I get phone or private support?
Your purchase does not include one to one support, but there is an option to purchase one to one support if you decide you need it. Find out more here >
Got stuck at the checkout?
We monitor how many people visit our checkout without purchasing. If there’s a reason why you didn’t go ahead, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
We value your privacy
When we sat down to create these graphic designer contracts with real graphic designers they were in for a shock.
It turns out each of them thought the way they handled masters, copyright, edit rights etc was the only way to do it.
We could see from the start that graphic designers have at least two very distinct business models. No wonder clients of graphic designers come to us with stories of expectations not met and unexpected bills!
We know you spend a lot of time and money learning how to be really great at graphic design, but there is a lot more to making your business work than being a great graphic designer.
From legal changes to ensuring client expectations are met, you need to make sure that your contract outlines clear terms to protect both parties.
We’ve all had clients who expected us to do things we never offered to do, or want a faster turn round than we can manage. And what about the ones who pay really slowly or not at all?
Your graphic designer terms of business are designed to use with your clients to make sure you have a clear agreement that helps you both comply with the ever-changing legal landscape.
Set yourself up with clear professional agreements from the start of your relationship.
You will also be able to:
Your graphic designer terms will protect you from:
With all the changes that IR35 and Brexit will bring, there has never been a better time to get your paperwork up to date and keep it up to date. Any changes needed when the law changes are dropped into your document folder at no additional cost during your support period, plus we run webinars and how-to sessions giving you clear and simple information on what you need to do. You can access them later and ask questions in our customer only Facebook support group.
Your graphic designer terms of business include a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) as well as many other documents and clauses to help you remain protected. They also come with a full set of onboarding videos explaining how to use them and 6-18 months of group support depending on what level you purchase.
