If you have illustrator and an artist that will do them in vector format
for $5 an image, that is a pretty good deal. You would probably want an
artist to do it so you can get all angles of the product (there's always
that one component you need a specific side view from). Also, raster line
art is very difficult to work with as it can be hard to change even a small
thing (removing a button), or resize the images for high DPI printing.
