Re: Duplicate Contracts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I prefer 2 originals.  At the very least, I want an original with original
(ink) signatures for my records.  The Client has the option of keeping the
2nd orginal with signatures or photocopying the single original.

Of course there is an exception to every rule.  For my continuing clients, I
often fax them a contract and receive back just a fax with both signatures.
