Whether or not a vendor requires original signatures is up to the vendor. If original signatures are required, you must mail in the documentation to TCG Administrators and TCG Administrators must mail the documentation to the vendor to maintain the original signatures. If a vendor has told you that you may fax in their forms, it is usually safe to assume that the vendor does not need original signatures. The majority of vendors accept faxed or electronic signatures, but TCG Administrators relies on the information you provide to confirm this information for your request.
