Violation of Policy or Rules

A Seattle Makers membership does not provide for production level fabrication. If you are looking to scale your project, please speak with us before doing so. If Seattle Makers becomes aware of production level work being performed beyond and above the regular scope of membership, we may charge a fee for excessive use, to cover associated excess costs, and at which time we will endeavor to work with you to create a plan that meets your needs within the context of the Seattle Makers prioritization of regular memberships. If we can not agree on a plan that works for both of our needs, and production level fabrication continues, membership will be cancelled, and any associated fees may be charged.
