Payments for custom design projects are only made to us in increments as a courtesy to the client only on a case-by-case basis. Once a payment or deposit is made, it is non-refundable. If a project is canceled or postponed, all monies paid are retained by Estate Media LLC and if applicable, a fee for all work completed beyond what was already paid for shall be due by and paid by the client.

Design costs paid to Estate Media LLC are non-refundable. We are not liable for damages incurred due to printing errors or problems from our files if full specifications from your printer were not provided or were incorrect/inaccurate, or if you supply the wrong files to your printer. We provide the design files via email or online only. No actual items will be shipped to you.

If any chargeback or payment dispute is caused by the Customer to a bank or credit card company, then Customer’s services and/or projects will be suspended and in some cases, all work will be undone (reversed) without notice. Furthermore, the amount of the chargeback fee will be issued to the Customer (to recover any fees passed on to us by the credit card company). In Addition, any outstanding balances accrued as a result of the chargeback(s) will have to be paid in full before we restore service, deliver any files, or commence any work.
PLEASE CONTACT US TO ADDRESS ANY BILLING ISSUES AND WE WILL GLADLY HELP YOU.
Requesting a chargeback or opening a dispute for a valid charge from us is fraud. Chargebacks are never a legal or appropriate means of obtaining a refund. Please read and make sure you fully understand our refund policy before making a payment. All disputes will be challenged by our lawyers with sufficient evidence from our records.
