I live in Canada, Australia, the UK, or outside the United States. Can I use your contract templates?
Yes! Our contract templates are not dependent on local laws and are applicable no matter where your clients are in the world. Our philosophy is that we want to capture the spirit and mutual understanding of the relationship between the service provider and client in an easy-to-understand, accessible way. Therefore, we have international versions of select contract templates for convenience, but not out of necessity. Our Hold My Hand™ guide will walk you through how to adjust for international use.

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 5,000 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 this contract is 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.
