  • What is the turn-around time?

Keeping in mind revisions and other possible delays, you can expect: - 7-21 days for logo completion - 7-30+ days for brand package completion - 14-30+ days for website design completion Printing & shipping takes 2-10 business days depending on what is ordered and what shipping method is chosen. Due to COVID-19, delays are possible.
  • Does my payment expire if I don't use now?
    Your payment will be valid for up to 1 year * After 1 year, your payment will be void * 30 days of no contact = your order being archived * $20 fee will be required to pick up after archival * If purchasing during a SALE, you have up to 30 days to use service at sale price * If service price changes, the upcharge will be applied to your invoice If purchasing a service that you are not ready to get started on right away, please let me know as soon as you can!
  • Do you offer rushed orders if I need my project sooner?
    Rushed services are available but not always guaranteed. The rush fees can range from $35-$100 on top of the service fee, depending on how soon your project proofs are needed. You can contact before booking, to see if a rush order can be placed by your rushed due date To rush the proofs and the revisions, you must book the $50 rush fee option. Otherwise your revisions will be done in the general 1-7 business day timeline
  • What is the refund policy?
    No refunds are available unless requested up to 24 hours after booking. After that time frame, your deposit is nonrefundable. Your deposit holds your due date and gets you onboarded. The deposit will be held because no service can be rendered on that day after you booked due date, so designer's time will be un-scheduled
  • What is the difference between full design and no design?
    Full design - Your item(s) will have design elements to make the item unique and beautiful to match your brand. Similar to how a flyer would be created. No design - Your item(s) will have no design elements. This can include your logo being centered or titled onto the banner, or with information and 1-2 images
  • How/when do I pay my remaining balance?
    You will be sent an invoice with the remaining balance for your service(s), It can be paid on at any time. The remaining balance is DUE, once design(s) are finalized and you'd like them to be released to you or for print items to be printed and shipped. If the remaining balance is not paid 30 days after last communication, fees will apply to start back up or to release files to you.
  • Do you work alone?
    Yes, Artish Design consists of one person and that is me, Teshia Smith. I am looking to expand in the near future, but for now, Artish Design is a one woman show.
  • Instead of paying online, can we meet up?"
    Due to COVID-19, meeting in person is not allowed.

    Consultation forms will be sent to you via email within 48 hours of booking. Weekends excluded. Forms will be accessible through the client portal as well, which you will receive an email about shortly after booking.
  • What is the Client Portal?
    This is a portal in which you'll be able to access your consultation form(s)/contract, invoice, emails between us and more. The client portal becomes accessible to you after you receive the onboarding email within 48 hours of booking. The email will include what password you will use to enter into the portal.
  • What are logo variations?
    Logo variations are alternative logos that compliment your "main logo" Submarks, simple variations and full variations are offered. You will receive multiple variations within each concept when receiving your proofs. Variations are highly recommended, as your full logo may not fit with everything or on everything. It is ideal to have 2+ variations to be used in different settings Simple variation: One of the variations within your chosen concept • Aspects of the main logo generally subtracted Full variation: Adding another concept • Design that has another look/concept than your main/chosen logo Submark: A submark is a simplified version of your logo, usually is a mark, symbol, a few letters, etc. (i.e.) Think of Nike's logo. They have the word "NIKE" as well as the stripe. The stripe can be used by itself and still be identified with the Nike brand Color Variation A variation of your logo, filled with 1 solid color. This is HIGHLY recommended for all logo types. I recommend to get a white and black (or other contrasting color pair) variation, for watermarking on photos. Think of a pink, grey, gold, and blue logo on top of a busy photo. Black or white will look better and be easier to see.
  • How many proofs will I receive to choose from?
    You will receive 2 logo concepts to choose from with a custom logo. You will receive multiple variation options within each concept. If you are choosing more than one concept, the fee will be $50 each as full variations. You will receive 1 concept if you're purchasing your logo during a SALE or if your logo is from a sketch/revised or "revamped" logo.
  • Can I get a glitter logo?
    If you haven't already, check out this blog to read about what makes a professional logo. You will understand how glitter will impact the professionalism of your branding. In short, no glitter logos will be designed here at Artish Design. You will receive the best concepts that fit your brand plans, purpose and target audience. A good logo thats fit for a business that is ready to expand, does not have glitter.
  • How many revisions can I make to my chosen concept(s)
    2 revision rounds are included with our logo packs. Beyond that, extra revision rounds are $10 each. You can pay for as many as you like until the logo(s) is perfect for you!
  • How long do revisions take?
    Revisions can take anywhere from 1-7 business days, depending on the complexity and amount of adjustments needed. After all revisions are made, design(s) finalized and the remaining balance is paid, the files will be released to you via email within 24 hours.
  • Is there a time frame in which I have to confirm revisions or finalization of my logo?
    After receiving your logo proofs through email, your order will be marked as Important/Priority for the next 7 days. You will receive a feedback form to fill out with your requested revisions. If you reach out after those initial 7 days about revisions, revisions are liable to take longer, as the next pending orders will be prioritized at that time. A strict schedule is followed for design work, so that current projects can be prioritized before new projects are taken. Your logo does not have to be completed in that 7 day timeline, as branding can definitely take time; that is just the timespan in which your project is in its priority stage. If contact ceases for 30 + days, your project will be archived. A $20 archive fee will be added to continue if you'd like to pick up after that timeframe.
  • How will I receive my logo?
    You will receive: JPEG - 1. Default background (black or white), 2. Greyscale Logo, 3. Mood Background *** Greyscale logo is usually needed when you copyright or trademark your logo through a government site *** PNG - (Can compress. transparency is great for web based and other graphics): PDF - Used for vector format and transparency. While other vector files need proper software to preview, PDFs are readable regardless the software: Extras: EPS (Common vector file used for printing on large scale or for items that will need separation): $15 Ai (Edittable vector file): $15 PSD (Edittable raster file. All layers are in this format): $30 SVG (Scalable vector file): $15 To have your logo downsized or upsized as a JPEG, there will be no charge. To have your logo downsized or upsized in a PDF or EPS, it will be charged as the prices above, each.
  • How does copyrighting my chosen logo work?
    You must copyright, register, trademark, your business on your own. I am providing the design. I can add a TM, R, or C on your logo but this will not mean that it is technically registered. Check out All rights belong to you when given your logo, but I do reserve the right to use it for my portfolio, and for marketing uses. No other person will have the same logo as you.
  • Do you send progress/updates along the way?
    I do not send "Progress" files or updated proofs along the way. Please expect your logo concepts ON your due date by 11:30pm. In the booking system, the time that you selected secures you for that date. When planning, know that the end of the day for your due date is 11:30 pm.
  • For pre-made logos; how soon will I receive the logo after paying?
    You will receive the proof within 2 business days for premade logos. After you approve that it's all set, the files will be sent to you.
  • What is the difference between eCommerce and Informational Websites?
    eCommerce: This is what website you will choose if you will be accepting payments directly through your website. Generally for an online store and/or booking services, restaurant orders or donations. You will need a Premium eCommerce or Shopify plan, and a payment processor (Square, Stripe, paypal, etc.) Informational: You will choose an informational site if you will not be accepting payments through your website. This is generally to display your business services, work, contact, about, or non-profit businesses. Informational sites can also link to other webpages for example, if you'd like to use Acuity for booking, but with an Artish web design.
  • Wix vs Shopify Website
    Wix is the designer's favorite, as it is more customizable than Shopify. Through Wix, ANY element or system can be created, animated and more. With Shopify, a theme will be selected, and the website will be designed mostly through banners, slides, images elements, colors and fonts. Choose a Premium theme for the most unique interfaces. Check out both of their prices and features on your own to decide which platform is best for your business! They're both great, and great websites have been made with both.
  • Do I need to create a Wix/Shopify account?
    Yes, the website design will be transferred to your account after it is completed. You can create a free account now or after the design is completed. It is advised to create the account now, because the platforms often sends emails for you to purchase a premium plan at a discounted price, especially around holidays.

  • Do your prices include the hosting and domain name?

Consider the weight of banner as well when using items to hang them • Nylon rope • Bungee cords • Suction Cups and Hooks • Zip ties • Hanging clips • Heavy clamps (Backdrops come with heavy clamps) • Velcro strips/Command Strips (Would not recommend for outdoor banners) - Table banners (i.e. at vendor events), can generally be used with command strips so long as the weight labeled on the command strip, says that It can hold that your banner is (13 oz, 15, 18) • For a permanent placement, you could have it screwed into your surface with heavier duty tools/applications > Reference this video to see how it is done. You can ask for a pole sleeve instead of/or as well as grommets, just type that into your checkout notes. This is used when you are putting the banner through a pole, like a backdrop stand. * Artish Design is not responsible for the hanging of banners * * Artish Design does not provide for the extra items/tools needed to hang banners *
