Building tolerances not working in favour? 
Inaccurate survey
No survey 
Bad setting out 
Start at the other end and it works out 
Setting out of individual letters from the previous rather than setting out from the start point, i.e. creeping inaccuracy 

Designer/Artist having fun?
Taking the piss out of the subject being taught there

Its difficult fixing an other C on the panel joint

Font setting out rules that shall not be broken by a signage man
Setting out sheet provided to installer insisted on the right hand margin

Supervisor not having the time of day

inadequate training
