Drawing Guide Lines 1. The process of transcribing and / or cutting a drawing work onto or from a product or material is affected by the quality of the original artwork and the material that is being marked. The buyer is advised that the results of cutting or engraving drawing work onto a natural material such as wood, leather etc or a material that we have not encountered before can give variable results. Whilst whatageek designs will endeavour to minimise this variation we are unable to guarantee the final result and cannot be held responsible for these variations. We will advise as best we can what the buyer can aim to expect and where possible make them aware to possible problems that might occur. The quality of the cut / engraved drawing work is also dependent on the quality of the digital artwork for which whatageek designs have little or no control. The seller in some cases will provide the buyer with a print of the drawing work before it is engraved onto or cut from your product or material, for the buyer’s approval. In order to avoid ambiguity or misunderstanding, we may request a printed copy of your drawing work to facilitate our quality control process.
