FAQs

What is the typical process?

You decide you want Krizzy Designs to work on your blog.
You make the appropriate deposit via paypal.
You fill out the questionnaire and email it to Krizzy Designs.
I will let you know when I will begin working on your header.
Once you approve your header, I will set up a test blog and send it to you.
Once you have approved everything, I will send you an invoice via paypal for the balance of your design.
After payment is received, I will install your blog for you.
Once your blog is installed, there might be minimal changes I will do, but I reserve the right to charge you for these changes.

How do I make deposits and payments?

Currently, Paypal is my payment method of choice. However, you do not need a Paypal account to make a payment. I request a 50% deposit for most projects to start and final payment before installation or delivery of digital files.

After a deposit or payment is made, I will not issue refunds due to the time invested.

What is the typical timeline?

My timeline depends on the number of clients in my waiting list. I will let you know approximately how long it will take for me to get to your name and get started on your design. I have pretty typical working hours, 8am- 4pm and don’t work on most weekends. First and foremost, I am a mother and a wife, so those duties will always come first.

It also depends on required revisions and how quick you are to return emails, but typically between 1-2 weeks once Krizzy Designs get started on your blog. However, Krizzy Designs has been known to do a design in a day or two.

What happens with my sidebars/widgets?

Everything in your sidebars should stay intact. However, it is a good idea to have everything backed up before I start the installation. As the blog owner, you are responsible for the sidebar content.

Where can I pick out images?

I recommend istock, fotolia, or dreamstime. These images are all royalty free and therefore can be used in your design.

Can you email me the images I purchased?

The terms of use state that the images may only be on one computer. While you purchase them, it is for the purpose of Krizzy Designs using it. Therefore, I cannot legally pass the image alone on to you.

Why do you need my username and password?

I log into your blog and make all of the necessary changes. If you aren’t comfortable doing this, we have other options. Please let me know.

My kids have grown and changed, can you change out my header?

Sure. I would love to update your look. The fee associated with these changes depends on the detail and the number of pictures.

All of a sudden I see a photobucket logo on my site. Where did everything go?

Photobucket will display their button if you don’t log into it every 90 days. If you see this error/message, please log into your account and everything should be good and should still be there.

How are the payments and fees handled? What about the deposits?

I require a deposit before starting all design work. Due to the nature of the work, once any payment is made (either deposit or final payment), I will not issue a refund. Once you give the final okay on the work, I will send a paypal invoice for the balance of your design. After receiving final payment, your design will be installed. Any future edits will be charged at a rate determined by Krizzy Designs.

What are the terms I’m agreeing to? (re: Images and Coding)

-Once I have completed the blog design, please, please, please do not use the html that is in your code to create and sell your own blog designs. Thanks:)
-You may not claim the graphics or you coding as your own, either the original or the digitally altered state.
-You may not make changes to the html of your blog. If you do, please remove any of the changes that I have made as well as my button (you should reset to one of the standard blogger templates.)

I want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your entire blog design. If you aren’t, please let me know. If it is significantly after you have approved your design and I have installed it, I have the right to charge you for changes (depending on the difficulty).

Do you do Web/Blog Design?

I design and install for WordPress using the Thesis theme. I am happy to use other themes, however, other there might be other fees associated.

I also request that the links to my design site stay on your blog/site as long as the design stays on there. This helps me maintain my business.

All design files are the owned by Krizzy Designs. Any edits to original files are to be made through Krizzy Designs only.
