TERMS OF SERVICE

*Please read the entire TOS before checking for prices. Your quote form will be omitted should you not read the terms carefully*

 

GENERAL:

- BlackCheetah Studios reserves the right to cancel, refuse, and/or change your commission if problems arise. Customers will be contacted beforehand to discuss whether the problem(s) can be resolved.

- Customers must be 18 years or older to purchase any fursuit from us. We are able to work with parents/guardians if they are looking to purchase any suits for a minor (a person less than 18 years of age).

- We would prefer to provide quality goods rather than rushed products. The completion date is an estimation, not a guarantee (Turnaround time 4-6 months). Please practice patience as we try to follow our work schedule. Sometimes, unplanned circumstances cause delays. BLUE We will keep all clients up to date on their commissions’ status. Please keep in mind we have multiple customers in our queue at a time.

-We do not guarantee that any fursuit commissioned for a convention will be delivered in time for that convention. We are not responsible for any delayed deliveries once the product is in transit. 

-If a customer requires any fursuit to be completed before a convention or has a certain due date, they may wish to be placed above other commissions in the current queue. Orders like these require a $700 non-refundable rush fee. We have the right to refuse "rush orders" should the due date be thought to be unachievable.

​- Plus-sized customers will be required to pay an additional fee, as more materials are required to accommodate the suit sizing. This fee is $100 per size above a unisex Large.

 

CONCEPT ART:

-The character MUST belong to the customer, or a company represented by the customer. Customers are required to provide an appropriate SFW reference sheet which includes all of the colors and markings required for the commission. References illustrating the front, back, and side profiles of the character are preferred for the best results.  We do not work with literary descriptions.

- Any design changes or additions will need to be approved by us. Any changes will cost additional fees depending on the type of alteration. Changes may result in the delayed completion of the fursuit.

- Matching our product's fur to the provided reference is important to us. However, due to the limited availability of fur color, length, and more, there may not be an exact match. The customer is welcome to purchase and ship the necessary amount of fur to BlackCheetah Studios. Fur is bought either online or locally in order to best match the provided reference design.
