    We’ve had problems with doing free artwork on spec for customers and they then take what we’ve drawn for them (without paying for them of course) and sending them off to another sign company. I agree if it’s quick it’s probably not a big deal, but if it takes any amount of time I say avoid working on spec unless it’s a steady trusted customer that you know will pay and / or you will still be getting actual sign work out of.
