A "Hint" about Proofing Your Product from Joanna Warren Smith

Please don't embarrass yourself at your camp

Check out the attached pic I just took at Staples.

What can I say?


  • Use Spell Check Always.  It's essential.
  • Confirm grammar, punctuation and word usage.  In this case, Staples intended Assistance for Assistants.
  • Read Copy Out Loud.  Hearing what you have written will highlight problems.
  • Have All Work Proofed by at Least One Uninvolved Person.  Proofing cannot be done by someone who has been working on the project.  It is too easy to miss the obvious ... obviously!

Mistakes on websites, in brochures, flyers, emails or written communications say to the reader that you are careless and not attentive to details.
