creativeblocs - FAQs
creativeblocs has a minimum contract period of 6 months, after which point, the service will roll-on month by month, until you decide to discontinue the service. You are welcome to return to creativeblocs at any time when your needs dictate.
You will receive a log-in portal which will give you an accurate assessment of the time remaining in your plan for that month.
In short no, the plan is intended for organisations with regular design needs, and the pricing structure reflects this. It is better to under estimate your requirements, i.e. sign-up for one day a month and get billed the additional hours at the reduced rate, should the need arise, rather than to risk losing unused hours.
If you find that one month you exceed your allocated hours, Creative Services can either carry over the used hours in to the next month, or can invoice you for the additional hours, leaving the full quota of hours still intact for the next month. You are able to step up to the next level at any point in the contracted period should you be regularly exceeding your allocated hours.
Payments are paid monthly in advance by standing order. The payment date will fall on the first day of your contracted period. After the initial contract period of six months, your will enter a rolling monthly payment. You can cancel your agreement at anytime after the 6 month period, by giving one month notice.
