Thanks Emily!

I sent this particular estimate off with those terms exactly, and didn’t get any complaints from the client - so I guess it was agreeable. Would still love to hear others input on general terms (though each client obviously has the potential to negotiate unique options).

Cheers,
-Natalya

If you’re negotiating a set time frame of exclusivity (say a year) does the clock start the day you deliver the art? The day the journal is actually published? A random window of time specified by the client?
