CLIENT COMPATIBILITY QUIZ
HERE'S A CHECKLIST TO HELP YOU DETERMINE WHETHER WE ARE THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOUR NEEDS.
We work directly with project owners. *
If you have full authority and decision-making power for your project, we're ready to talk! If you require someone else's approval or input before we embark on a project together, please ensure that you have it before you get in touch with us.
If you are seeking a traditional sign painter to paint replicas of existing graphics, we are not the right fit for you. *
We love to paint, and frequently design and paint custom artwork within the context of our projects. However, Good Snake does not function as a traditional sign and banner service, so if you've worked with sign painters or installers in the past, collaborating with Good Snake will be very different, in terms of both our pricing and our overall approach to each project. If you are seeking a creative director (or two) who can help you identify the visual needs of your project, and then develop and implement accessible design to address those needs, then you've come to the right place.
We always document our work, and we often post photos of it online. *
If you'd prefer confidentiality for any portion of your project, please let us know prior to getting started, so we don't spill the beans.
Please plan to keep us in the loop as your project evolves. *
Hit some delays? Received new information relating to the project scope or budget? Decided that Good Snake's not the right fit after initial kickoff conversations? Completely fine, we just ask that you remain as up-front as possible with us throughout the duration of our project relationship.
Check your SPAM folder if you contact us and don't hear back within a couple business days. *
We're really good at email, but some servers send snakes, even good ones, straight to the SPAM folder.
Good Snake's original artwork remains ours unless we expressly release it to you. *
If we create custom artwork within the context of your project, it is intended exclusively for use within that context. Our artwork (including preliminary project-related sketches or other documents) may not be reproduced, altered, or applied in other ways by you or other associated individuals or entities unless expressly authorized in writing by us.
We usually sign our painted work. *
If we paint a sign, mural, or anything else for your project, we may select a small area to sign or otherwise place our name or logo. If you prefer to keep our name completely off of any or all pieces that we paint for your project, please let us know in writing before we bring the brushes out.
Our clients submit payment before we commence work. *
We require full payment prior to getting started on any project or project phase. This enables us to jump straight into collaboration with prepared and committed clients when it's time to focus on their projects.
Changes, additions, and delays on your part may incur additional fees and/or extend the overall project timeline. *
THINGS THAT MIGHT CAUSE YOUR PROJECT TO COST YOU MORE TIME AND/OR MONEY:
-delays in response to time-sensitive emails, phone calls, or invoices
-failure to ensure that we can physically access objects or surfaces that you have hired us to paint
-requests for changes or additions to the original scope of a project
If you terminate a project after work has already commenced, you will still be responsible for a partial payment. *
We will retain the cost of the relative part of the work completed, or a 25% termination fee, whichever is greater.
If you try to pay us with a bad check, we won't work with you. *
Why would you do that? Instead, save us all the headache and just come back when you're ready. A returned or stopped payment will result in immediate project termination, and will incur a convenience fee of $30 in addition to associated project cancellation fees.
You handle the legal mumbo-jumbo, we make the pretty. *
You are responsible for ensuring that project deliverables comply with all local, state, and federal laws, and for identifying and obtaining required permits. We make no representations or warranties in connection with compliance with local, state, or federal rules, codes, or regulations.
We like your project too, but we can't hold onto it forever. When a project is complete, please plan to retrieve it within a couple days. *
We ask our clients to collect all painted pieces within two weeks of notification of project completion, or to arrange an expectation of when they can be retrieved. After two weeks without notice, completed pieces remaining in our studio may be subject to additional storage fees, and we reserve the right to dispose of completed pieces with no refund after a month.
Are you sure you understand the meaning of "hand painted?" *
Are you excited about the prospect of Good Snake painting something for your project? So are we! Before we go any further, though, a reminder: "hand painted" means "painted by hand." While we are able to paint with extreme precision, we are not computers. If you work with Good Snake on a custom painting project, there will be brush strokes, natural variations in tone or opacity, and other possible visible indicators of the human process involved in the implementation of your project. If you are seeking a service that applies graphics exactly as rendered on your computer screen down to the last pixel, Good Snake is not the right fit for your needs.
Don't worry, we'll discuss specifics later. For now, we're just looking for a general overview of your project and our potential role.
There are infinite ways that we can contribute to your project, but our level of involvement will ultimately be determined by your specific needs, your timeline, and your budget. While we understand that often, these factors may evolve throughout the life of a project, starting with a general idea of your budget will provide us with a great jumping-off point.
The more accurate you can be, the better. Even if you don't anticipate a need for full project completion within months or years, we still recommend sharing your general desired timeline, as your vision of a flexible timeline may differ from ours.
Thank you! We’ll be in touch soon!
