Proofread, please, please, please!

I admit it: I go on and on about how important proofreading is. I generally focus on the importance of avoiding errors in business communications. But proofreading is important in your personal communications, too — especially for those times when we still invest the money to put ink to paper and actually send something in the mail. I can only imagine the anguish of the bride who received her wedding invitation set with these spelling errors.

You can click through to see larger images, but the first card says “Celebrtation” instead of “Celebration,” and the RSVP card says “celbrating” instead of “celebrating.” Remember that many online forms, such as the one the bride would have used to create these invitations online, do not have a built-in spell-checker function. You must carefully check your work before hitting the submit button!
