- 25% down, 75% upon completion
- 25% down, 25% upon completion, remaining 50% spread out over four monthly payments (for our web hosting clients)

And because of the revenue-generating nature of publishing, select projects may qualify for this plan with Fistbump Media acting as your publisher:

The future of publishing is about having connections to readers and the knowledge of what those readers want.
