* The reason for the increase in deposit amounts is that blocks of time for projects are allotted depending on the complexity of projects. If we set aside days or weeks to complete your project, we are then not able to accept work from other paying clients during that time frame. If a client suddenly decides to scrap a project, we are left with no income for what could be a substantial period of time. This used to not be an issue until some project managers started doing more projects on speculation, then suddenly changing their minds as markets shifted. We really only want to work on projects that are fully intended to be published.
