There's even a COVID clause! Please consult with a local lawyer who is familiar with your state's laws for validity prior to using.
Note: I use a General Agreement for all projects, regardless of format, duration, or designer involvement. This is not specific to any single service / package and is required by every client of mine. In addition to the General Agreement, each service / package has its own Terms and Conditions which is specific to their level of service.

It also calculates the budget set by the designer, the current amount spent, and the pending balance.

Identifiable information is automatically entered as you order and you can manually check off when the fees have been deducted from your bank. This sheet allows you a single place for all your project finances and recalls information at a quick glance.
Project Autopsy - Analyze your project at the end. This is such an important process that often gets missed. Did you charge enough? What were your key takeaways? What was your client experience like and how could it have been better? Quick information is available at a glance for evaluation purposes.
