Amending the contract header and footer text

This feature is in development as is not yet live on Band Pencil

By default, Band Pencil will display a header and footer for each contract. The header and footer sits either side of your contract terms and conditions. The header and footer is designed to be static, so does not change per contract.

To change the default header and footer navigate to your contracts page and click the Edit Default button in the top-right corner. Contract header and footer support merge tags, you can learn more about how merge tags work here.

Contract header

Although it's completely up to you to what you put in the header, we suggest your header should contain generic information about who the contract is between. The default text displayed is shown below and you can use merge tags.

Default header:

This document is between {{trading_name}} of {{billing_address|NOBREAK}} and {{client_name}} of {{client_address|NOBREAK}}. This document outlines the Terms & Conditions for the event on {{event_date}} at {{event_location|NOBREAK}}.

Contract footer

Again, although it's completely up to you to what you put in the footer, but we suggest your footer should contain generic information about signing the contract and agreeing to the above terms and conditions. The default text displayed is shown below and you can use merge tags.

Default footer:

By entering your full name and clicking the “Confirm Contract” button you are agreeing to the above terms and conditions, agreeing all the above information is correct and agreeing that you would like the chosen entertainment to be booked. You also agree to pay the total fee stated above by the date shown on your invoice(s).

If you are agreeing on behalf of a company, then you, the client are confirming that you are authorised by the company to enter into this agreement. This is a digital representation of your signature. We record your full name, IP address and date-time-stamp. An email confirmation will be sent to both parties. If you do not agree with these conditions, or any information is incorrect, do not confirm the contract until you have contacted {{trading_name}}.
