1. Customized Asianera designs:

a. Asianera will add a surcharge of 15% for customized changes to existing Asianera designs (for example,     color changes or minor changes in layout, adding client's name or logo to existing designs, etc) If additional gold or platinum is requested, the customization surcharge of 15% could be higher depending on how much additional gold or platinum is requested.

b. The Asianera standard logo must be the backstamp on all Asianera-designed patterns and shapes.
