Thank you for partnering with Infuze, LLC and our subsidiaries (GenBlend, DesignFixx, GoPrezo, Fork & Flight, Loop Workshops, Pix + Post, and SAMI Social) for your marketing needs! (Note: in the rest of this document, “Infuze”, “we”, “us” represents Infuze and all its subsidiaries)
We’ve learned that success in any project starts with setting clear expectations for both parties beforehand so we have pulled together the following agreement as an opportunity to ensure that we are on the same page. You will find the Scope of Work (SOW) for the agreed upon services to be performed at the beginning of this document.
As legal documents tend to be, these terms and conditions may tend to read austere and impersonal. Be assured that we’ve not attempted to hide any zingers in the fine print. We recognize the importance of such documents and ask that you read this carefully before signing the agreement. If you have any questions, or if for some reason these terms and conditions would prevent you from working with Infuze, please contact me directly: Stacey Divine: 916.662.8282
A copy of our full terms and conditions can be found at www.infuzemarketing.com
Payment Terms for each service vary slightly, so here is a breakdown of each services payment process:
Infuze requires 50% of the project cost up front before work will be started. Remainder of payments due will be divided by timeline allocated for the project(s) and billed on the first of each month. All payments are due within 30 days of receipt of an invoice. Retainer clients payments are due on the first of each month. We understand that unforeseen issues come up, so we simply ask that you pay fees relative to work completed should you cancel or place this project on hold (whether by request or 30 days of inaction). We ask that any cancellations be made in writing 30 days in advance (effective the first day of the month following cancellation). Retainer clients are asked to pay 30% of total remaining fees if contract is canceled in advance. Should cancellation be requested a transition plan will be provided to client within 48 hours of written notice. If a payment is going to be late, simply let us know by sending an email. Otherwise, our accounting system automatically charges a 1.5% late fee.
The client signing this agreement makes a personal guarantee that payment will be made as outlined. Note: We sincerely hope this never happens to your company, however, if your organization files for bankruptcy or for any reason is unable to pay for our contracted services, Infuze will take legal action to collect all remaining debt.
Payment for individual pieces under the categories “Easy Fixx” & “Little More Muscle” on Site must be paid in-full before the design process begins. If you are unhappy with your design after all revisions and you have not downloaded the files, we will offer you a full return.
For our “Monthly Unlimited” option, clients will be automatically charged in-full at the beginning of the month. You are free to cancel your subscription at anytime by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and charging of your account will cease. If you decide to opt-out mid month, you will still have access to services for the rest of the month that has already been paid for.
Each project through GoPrezo requires a $500 deposit upfront. We will apply the deposit towards your final payment, where the remainder must be paid in full before download of final project. If you are unhappy with your design after all revisions and you have not downloaded the files, we will offer you a full return.
Any additions you would like to add to your presentation after your final round of revisions or after the download of your final presentation will be charged $25 per slide.
Fork & Flight and Loop Workshops
All event ticket payments will be processed through Ticketspice. We will issue a full refund for tickets if requested before the day of the event.
Pix + Post

This may include a corrupt file, unexpected removal of file, or site technical difficulties. Refunds cannot be issued for your technical problems, including browser, compatibility, or connectivity issues.
Payment for a month's worth of services must be paid in-full before services begin. Each month, you account will be automatically charged at the beginning of the month. If you wish to cancel services, please send an email at email@example.com and charging of your account will cease. If you decide to opt-out mid month, you will still have receive services for the rest of the month that has already been paid for.
If you purchase a 12 month contract and wish to cancel at any time within the contracted year, you are responsible for paying the remainder of the contract.
For advertisement, we charge a 25% of your ad budget fee, which must be paid in-full before the service begins. For clients looking to spend $10,000/month or over, we offer a lower percentage fee, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Interested in utilizing influencers for your marketing needs? Our $250 fee must be paid in-full before we negotiate with an influencer. Please note that this $250 does not apply towards the cost of hiring the influencer, and that it only pays for us finding and negotiating the best service for you with said influencer.
Contracts can be terminated at any time by either party. Once this Agreement is terminated, we will refund any unused portion of the advertising budget to Client.
Once the initial question form is filled out, all appropriate materials are uploaded (existing presentation, content, etc.), and payment has been processed, you will receive your first draft of design or presentation within 2-3 business days.
You will receive two rounds of revisions, where you will provide clear, concise direction on the changes you would like to see to your design or presentation. Once our designer is clear, you will receive your second and final draft within 1-2 business days.
For Designfixx, all projects will be sent in PDF via email. You will receive your final files via hightail in PDF. For a logo, you will receive an .eps, jpeg and .png. Other formats (excluding native files) are available upon request.
For GoPrezo, projects will be sent as a .PDF when in drafting phases. Once project is finished, you will receive it as either a .PPT (Powerpoint) or Google Slides, along with a final .PDF version.
When providing images and content for you design or deck, if the quality of the image is too low, we will either request a higher quality version of the photo, a different photo, or there will be an additional cost for our team to enhance the photo to a usable quality.
If you wish to use stock images, there will be an additional cost for our team finding the stock images and the cost of purchasing the selected images. Infuze, LLC and our subsidiaries will adhere to the terms of service and usage requirements set by the company who owns the image(s).
Anything requested as last minute items that need a 24 hour turnaround time will incur a “Rush Fee” of $250.00 per day.

- Photoshopping, photo editing and photography are not included in graphic design services unless otherwise noted in the scope of work.
- A picture is worth a thousand words and we ask that both be provided by our clients if outside the SOW (that would be high resolution photography and copy/content where needed). We recognize that time is not always of the essence for our clients, so should you need us to produce or provide either service, we will gladly do so for an additional fee*.
- We ask that you pay print, logo item and media companies directly. We’ll gladly manage the details on your behalf with your chosen external firms at no extra cost though! As a side note, Infuze has vendors we can recommend and negotiated pricing we are happy to pass direct to our clients upon request.
- Infuze does not provide copyrights or patents but we are happy to recommend our stellar legal counsel should you need additional advisory or consulting support at any time.
- We know that timelines sometimes need to be altered for one reason or another, so we are always happy to be flexible, however our initial timeline for any project is outlined with the assumption that our client will provide us with the required information and resources as outlined in the SOW. We have found that the best way to meet these timelines is to have you assign one person from your team to act as “project manager” for the outlined responsibility, known as a Single Point Of Contact (SPOC). It will be that person’s responsibility to inform the rest of their organization of project updates and other pertinent information and work directly with their chosen third party vendors.
- All concepts/ideas referenced in this agreement are proprietary and confidential specific to Infuze’s intellectual property.
- We understand that project parameters change and we are flexible when this takes place. Infuze reserves the right to adjust any cost or charges for this project should the client alter the project parameters. This includes, but is not limited to: labor, image purchase, photography, travel, illustrations, printing, mailing, postage, online services, fonts, software, equipment requested and freight. Not to worry though, any additional costs will be agreed upon prior to work being done. We don’t like surprises either...unless it’s our birthday.
- Travel within 30 miles of our Downtown Sacramento office is included. Travel outside of that radius will be billed to the client at the per diem rate (travel, lodging, food).
