I had a magazine hand delivered to my office yesterday, it's basically a magazine filled with pretty full color ads. A couple of short, fluffy articles and some wedding announcements.
Filled with typos! One sentence just didn't sound right...taking care of customer's base needs (well that just sounds naughty). One of the old, local family names is misspelled in a headline, a couple fell in live while working together, Mr Warren joint the military, they wedding took place, another misspelled name in the body of the article about said person, spectacular ball event for local charity has charity name butchered (Sky High instead of High Sky), etc. It's horrible.
I'm not even halfway through the magazine, obviously they only relied on spell check and did not actually proof this.
It also opens with a letter about SHOPPING LOCAL, then in the next column you find out the mag is published in another city by a couple of ladies that actually live in other town (over 200 miles away).
I sent an email asking them to please proofread future issues. These are not minor infractions IMO, this is just laziness.
If they call me about placing an ad I will decline and state why.
