Using the Form

- Given to the Customer: The graphic designer offers customers the form, having them input their contact information, requests, and other details. The designer then completes the remaining fields, such as the cost breakdown, scheduling, and design specs. Allowing the customer to input details of their request is recommended, as they can specify dimensions, color codes, or provide a rough sketch of what they’re looking for, which would be difficult more difficult to convey by other means.
