Print Proofreading Can Save You a Bundle of Hassle and Headaches

Have you ever gotten your online business card order in the mail, only to find out there were typos on your brand new business cards? What a bummer!

If only you would have proofread a little closer, or had an actual copy editor check out your printing proof before going to print!

Our own Eagle Eye often catches glimpses of copy typos as they wend through our local Phoenix print shop, Graphic Ideals–and often catches them before the final print media product is finished.  We do try to keep a lookout on customers’ print media being printed by our Printing Services department. These projects haven’t been designed or even officially flagged for editing or proofreading, but our Design Services team tries to catch these copy errors for our printing service customers, since poorly edited copy can be a costly mistake.

So this week, we thought we’d send out a friendly reminder that print proofreading, copy editing and copywriting are all available at Graphic Ideals in Phoenix. These copywriting, editing, and proofreading services are just a part of our extended print service offerings to offer the best support we can to our Tempe, Scottsdale and Phoenix printing service customers (and of course our customers beyond).

Custom Writing Services to Avoid Typos, Spelling Errors and Grammar Mishaps

A lot of our printing service customers could really benefit from hiring our proofreading, editing, and copywriting services before they approve their printing proof for print.

Here are just a few ways our proofreading, editing and copywriting services in Phoenix, Arizona can help you the next time you go to use our printing services here at Graphic Ideals.

Spelling: Be clear about your product

How many typos do you recognize in a day? One, or maybe two? Our copy writing, editing, and proofreading department will always find more!

Here at Graphic Ideals, our editing and proofreading services staff are amazing at catching your spelling mistakes on your proofs of your printed media, before it goes to print, rather than you catching it after your print materials have already been printed!

Some people are just great spellers, and our copy editor on staff at Graphic Ideals has that great knack for correct spelling. She’s armed and ready with her red pen to help you catch those spelling blunders.

Grammar and Punctuation: Don’t distract from your message

Poor grammar is another great obstacle to many writers and desktop artists.
Graphic Ideals, your local, family-owned and operated printing company in Phoenix can help!

Do you know what a dangling participle is? We do. How about correct usage of punctuation? We’ve got that covered too. 

Bad grammar has met its match when sparring with our editing and proofreading services, so you no longer have to worry about those rules that your sixth-grade English instructor drilled into your head that you’ve somehow forgotten. Just leave the copy editing and proofreading to us, and get back to doing what it is you do so well–running your business, non-profit, or government agency.

Copywriting: Say what you mean

How about your copy? Is it legible? Is it functional? First comes the function, then the design. Typos, bad grammar, poor punctuation, and illegible copy detract from your message and undermine your credibility. Your custom writing on your print project should enhance the print medium, not detract!

If you miss something, you might have to swallow the cost to re-print your print materials. All that cost and frustration just because of a tiny spelling error or small grammatical mistake that we could have helped you catch–had you hired Graphic Ideals to edit and proofread your print media before it went to print.
