That really stinks.  It would have been major bragging rights had it worked out.

That would have been terrible if they did!  Don’t you own the rights to your work?!

Wow. You’d think they’d have an understanding of the cost for revisions if they’re in the technology industry. Surely they’ve billed clients before?!

I also have done some custom etched glass items for brides.  I did a set of vases for the bride and girls to hold their flowers at the reception.  I measure over and over and over to make sure everything was 100% even and looked outstanding.  I had this girl tell me that the date I put on her vase was not straight and that she needed a new one…at my expense…and this one she wanted the date to be in the number form instead of spelled out.  ARGH!  I went ahead and fixed it how she wanted because it was one of my first sells and I wanted positive feedback.  I am sure though that she really used both of them because the other one was on their 100% correct.

Did you explicitly state how many rounds of proofs were part of your price? I asked before I began the design process but not everyone knows that they should. I would be pissed if I was told halfway through the design process that I needed to pay an additional fee.

Yep I have had my share of interesting clients as well. I am lucky in that most people I work with are great, but sometimes misunderstandings are had etc. I just had one with a client and had to give her a refund due to my own slip up, and her unwillingness to let me hand deliver something to her.

Hmmm I am REALLY surprised that the CEO OF ORBITZ and Vice President of Expedia are getting married in Didsbury! How random :-/

i do design work at my job and it drives me NUTS when people come back over and over and over again with revisions. can you not send them to me more than one at a time? i waste so much of my time making changes, saving out a copy as a jpg or whatever, emailing it to them, getting another change back, making that change, saving out another copy, writing another email, etc. so annoying.

normally i’d be against putting their names up there, but seeing as they are both public figures (and unbelievably wealthy yet trying to screw you out of $60), i’d say it’s ok.
