5.1 I only create my own designs. Templates can be brought along for inspiration and reference.

5.2. Drawings are usually created the week of the appointment or together with the customer on the day of the appointment. An earlier completion of the drawing is only possible for an additional charge.

5.4 Unless the customer explicitly objects when making an appointment, I reserve the right to use the drawings made for the customer for other purposes (e.g. for printing on merchandise items).
