Fine Art Commission/Custom Painting Contract Template

For painters who commission custom work-- make sure your time is protected against an ornery client!

About the Template

In less than 10 minutes, your attorney-prepared and peer-reviewed agreement can be in the hands of your clients. You will receive one license and editable download immediately upon purchase- just fill in the blanks, breathe a sigh of relief and send it to your client for them to sign. Written and peer-reviewed by graduates of top 20 law schools, you can be sure this contract template is a good investment.

  • Attorney-prepared and reviewed by two other attorneys for quality
  • Ready to copy/paste into your favorite client software systems, or use by itself
  • The choice to either keep or give away the copyright in the designs you create for clients
  • No legalese guarantee- understand your own contract and sound like a pro when you explain it to clients
  • A breakdown of all the fees you need to charge, so your clients know what they're getting (and when they need to pay you!)
  • A section that talks about what happens when the client is LATE getting anything to you or just goes missing for awhile because you have better things to do than wait on them

What the Template Includes

  • An outline of services you provide
  • A payment plan outline with suggested dates
  • Late fee clause, in case your client misses those payments
  • Confidentiality clause to protect your trade secrets
  • A discussion about who owns the intellectual property you create, with the ability to give it all to the client OR maintain ownership while the client is allowed to use the finished product(s)
  • A limit of liability to minimize the amount of money you'd owe if you ever needed to rely on your contract
  • A disclaimer and release-- if clients know what they're in for, they can take responsibility in case something goes wrong
  • All the boring legal stuff that makes this puppy a real, valid contract (don't worry- it may be boring but it's easy to understand)

What makes you qualified to write a contract?

Most attorneys who sell templates did not learn directly from the lady who literally wrote the book on Contract Drafting (she taught at my law school). In the past year, I’ve been offered two in-house legal positions at Fortune 500 companies. I declined. I do this because I want to, not because I have to.

These templates are now in use by over 3,000 creatives. That’s a lot of feedback we’ve been able to process and use to improve our templates!

What do I have to do after I download my template?

You'll get plenty of instructions as to how to use your template with your download, and in your Hold My Hand™ guide, we'll also show you how to make the most of your contract. Pinky swear, I send my clients proposals in less than 30 seconds, and so can you

What if it’s not a good fit for my business?

We get it, sometimes things don't work out. That's why we offer a 14-day no-hassle refund for any reason. You don't have to show us anything. You don't have to prove anything. We'll ask you some simple admin questions to get your refund processed and the funds will be back in your account within 6 business days.

We’re customers of all this online business stuff too, and it really irckles our shirkles when we get treated like poo. So we’ve made a refund policy that is the opposite of that.
