I have Grand plans of commercial bids this next month. so I ordered new bifold buisness cards, stationary, envelops, & presentation folders. All custom print. I gave them wrong po box #, & evan proof read it wrong. I had to reprint. Almost $500. worth.
What can I say~

Never proof read your own writing. Rarely will you catch your own mistake. Always have someone else check for accuracy.

Ahhh...words from the wise. I will have to agree with Rod on this one. I did the same thing about 3 years ago. Had some vinyl made up for the side of my truck. Go there to pick up and pay and to my surprise they had the wrong phone number. To even more of a surprise I had signed off on the proof. They were kind and did it again for free.....I was lucky.

Hi flam41,

Sorry about that. Another thing to consider that happens a lot. What ever marketing material you are having created, hand it to someone and tell them to call the phone number within it. See if it actually rings your phone. You wouldn't believe how many times the wrong phone number gets written by accident.
