They only end up with the final PDF, video, graphics, etc. This most likely will be an issue for them because if they need to make alterations to it in the future, they’ll have to do it from scratch. That’s costly and takes time. Don’t let that be you. Always make sure to request your source files. Here’s an overview of what to request:
