Actually, I think Fletcher missed the point.  We presented three
presentations AFTER the client had signed acknowledgement of our terms and
accepted our roughs.  When they received the final quote they turned
frightened and started blaming one another for signing things they had not
read properly.  They elected not to take the job to print through us, but
also decided not to cover _our_ design costs..
