I ship a 1:1 color photo of an assembled board with my kits. It's a
just a few cents when printed in large quantities but it's very
helpful for cross-checking parts orientation or resistor colors -
especially for those who assemble their kits far from computers and
can't simultaneously check the assembly instructions online. Wouldn't
work for an extra-large vocoder boards, though :)
