Q: How can I get a customization estimate?
A: Start by contacting a Nucleus representative to discuss your project. We will ask a series of questions regarding the nature of the image, intended application and the usage rights desired. Shortly afterward, you will receive a written proposal outlining the scope of the agreement, usage rights, development costs, deadline and other details.
