nope - we did 1/3 then 1/3 due a month before, and 1/3 due that day. Every place we looked at told us $1000 deposit - I have never heard of 1/2.

We're doing increments of 1/3. You're going to have to pay them anyway, 50% isn't too bad.

I don't remember exact percentages but our deposit for photo/video was $500 and then we had another amount due a few months before and the rest due when picked up proofs...that sounds like a lot to me.
