In order to pay this way a Client must first contact Thumbnail Designers support in order to obtain the details needed to pay. We can supply a pre-forma invoice (full invoice issued on payment) as well as a purchase order reference if necessary.
Thumbnail Designers operates in 3 "regions". UK (excluding Europe), Europe (excluding UK) and USA (plus the Rest of the World). We must operate like this due to the fact that, being a UK based company we have to charge everyone in the UK VAT, People in Europe VAT but not Businesses in Europe who are VAT registered and for people in the USA and the Rest of the World we do not have to charge VAT for our services. On sign up your account will be given the correct Tax treatment for your region.
UK Internet Sites require that all Business Clients in Europe supply a valid VAT number for the Intercommunity VAT to apply, removing the VAT element from the invoice. This must be done on signing up for your account. If your VAT status changes while a customer, and you wish us to apply this new treatment to your account for the following monthly payments, please contact customer support to have this applied.

Thumbnail Designers is here to help with all your design needs. You can share your account with anyone in your organisation and can use your account for multiple brands as well as personal use if you wish. While Thumbnail Designers will supply work in a timely manner, remember we are not a replacement for a full-time graphic designer.
We recommend that the Client completes all sections of the brand (so we get to know and understand your brand) and design request forms to speed up the delivery of the design requests. As creative design can be subjective, you do not need to accept the design we have done and can request it's redone or even request a different designer if you wish. However, we do ask that the Client is clear in what they are looking for, supply any assets and information needed to complete the design request.
Thumbnail Designers work flow from your account is controlled by the priority queuing system, we could be working on any two design requests from your account at the same time however we will not progress to the next design until you have signed off the request as fully complete.
Mistakes can happen, and we will do our best to minimise these, however due to the nature of creative design we can not guarantee files will be delivered 100% error free. You agree to review all completed design work and let your designer know of any mistakes, changes or correction you need. Thumbnail Designers is not responsible for any losses or expenses incurred by errors or omissions. Please check your files fully before you undertake any print work etc.
The Client can not use Thumbnail Designers for any adult/pornographic or illegal services.
The Client can request unlimited designs, our output is based on several factors. The priority queue in the Client Login Area will allow you to organise what work we do for you next, you can modify this at any time however if we have accepted your job, it will be at the top of your queue until completed. Please note that we work on your 1st request in your queue and then move on to the next request as we wait for feedback from the 1st request, if you're happy and need no revisions you simply mark your design request complete and we will move on to the 3rd item in your queue and so on. If you have 2 designs awaiting feedback, we do not move on to the next job until one of these has been complete. The Client when ordering a logo design needs to wait until this is completed before we can start work on any designs that need this logo to be completed first.
We work daily on Clients design requests (Monday to Friday), while we will try our best to meet timelines, we cannot guarantee we will meet the deadline. We recommend that you do not use Thumbnail Designers for time sensitive design requests.
