Frequently Asked Questions
DO YOU GO BY JANE OR ERIN?
Erin is my first name. Jane is my middle name. Please call me Jane. But if you call me Erin I don’t mind at all!
I AM INTERESTED IN WORKING WITH YOU, HOW DO WE GET STARTED?
Please reach out to us via email or through our contact form on the contact page. We will get back to you with a media kit and a more detailed process sheet. Once you have decided on the package that is best for you we will get you a contract and an invoice. A 50% deposit is required on all projects before you will be placed on our calendar.
WHY DO YOU REQUIRE A 50% DEPOSIT BEFORE WE CAN GET STARTED ON MY PROJECT?
We require 50% of your project total before you are placed on our calendar – because we are a small studio with lots of project inquiries. We operate on a first come first serve basis. Clients who sign their contracts and pay their deposit will be placed in the next available project slot. We do not reserve slots for clients who have not paid their deposit or signed their contract because plans could fall through and they may not want to proceed with their project at the last minute. In order to ensure that we are not missing out on serious client projects we require signed contracts and a deposit before you are placed on our calendar.
DO YOU ACCEPT PAYPAL?
No. We do not accept paypal at this time. Paypal takes a large fee out of our final payment. Because we do not wish you to charge you MORE we accept personal checks, bank transfers and money orders. Please let us know if there is some reason why Paypal is your only option and we will try to work something out.
WHY ARE YOU BOOKED OUT 3 MONTHS IN ADVANCE?
We are a small boutique graphic design studio. We only book 2 to 3 projects a month to ensure that every client is getting a personal 1 on 1 design experience with us. Because we are a small studio and want to ensure all clients will get excellent and personal customer care we do not offer rush orders. If our timeline does not work for you we are happy to refer you to some other excellent designers.
IS WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT INCLUDED IN MY PACKAGE?
No. Jane Reaction does not provide web development but we do work closely with our preferred developer to provide a seamless transition from design to development. If you work with our prefered developer we will coordinate and oversee your project until it is complete. You are also welcome to work with the developer of your choice (although if you do work with another developer we will not be involved in the development process).
WILL YOU PROMOTE OUR PRODUCT/SITE ON YOUR BLOG?
We love reviewing products and websites on our blog if we feel like they are a good fit. If we review your product or website and we do not like it we will not promote it on our site. Simple as that.
WHAT PLATFORMS DO YOU TYPICALLY DESIGN FOR?
We typically design for WordPress or Shopify. Please let us know if you have another platform in mind and we try to work something out!
ARE ALL OF YOUR PROJECTS FEATURED ON YOUR BLOG?
No. We do not feature every single project on our blog. We try to, but with limited time devoted to blogging we are not able to feature every project.
I LOOKED AT YOUR MEDIA KIT AND WANT TO GET STARTED, HOW DO I SECURE MY SPOT ON YOUR CALENDAR?
Once we decide exactly what your project details are and when the best time to schedule your project is we will send you a contract to sign and you will be required to pay a 50% non-refundable deposit. Once we receive your contract and deposit you will be placed on our calendar.
CAN I CUSTOMIZE A PACKAGE?
Yes! We offer several standard packages but we are totally open to creating a package that fits your custom needs. Just let us know what you have in mind and we will do our best to tailer the best package for you!
WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE WHAT YOU DESIGNED FOR ME?
Because we like to keep our clients involved in the design process from start to finish this is rare. However, it has happened. It is no body’s fault and we don’t mind at all when you let us know. If after the first preview you are not happy with what you are seeing we are happy to go back to the beginning of the process and start all over free of charge. If we get to the end of the project and you require a few more rounds of revisions than what comes with your package we are happy to provide those for a small fee.
WHY DO I ONLY GET 2 ROUNDS OF REVISIONS?
We offer 2 rounds of revisions with each of our standard packages with the option of purchasing more revisions for a small fee if necessary. We have found that most clients are more than happy with their design after they have gone through the entire process with us and been provided with 2 opportunities to request changes or revisions. We limit your project to 1 or 2 design options with 2 rounds of revisions to keep everyone focused on the most viable design options.
DO YOU EVER TURN PROJECTS DOWN?
Yes. Sometimes we are too busy to take on a project that needs to get done right away. Also, if we feel that we are not the best fit for your project we will refer you to someone else that we feel has the skills sets to meet your needs.
CAN I WORK WITH MY OWN DEVELOPER?
Jane Reaction does not provide web development but we do work closely with our preferred developer to provide a seamless transition from design to development. If you work with our prefered developer we will coordinate and oversee your project until it is complete. You are also welcome to work with the developer of your choice. Once the design portion of your project is done we will hand off all design files to you to provide for your developer. We will not continue to be involved in the development process of your project.
DO YOU NEED ALL OF MY CONTENT BEFORE YOU CAN GET STARTED?
Having content is very beneficial. Often photographs and text can dictate the design direction of a project. Certain projects will require all content up front. We will let you know.
