    If I bought one of those, I'd keep the tag and ditch the cap.

    Haha. You'll doubtlessly be blamed for that monumental fuck up, but i have to wonder how many eyes went over that.

    I blame the printers - they're our spellcheckers, right?

    I noticed it straight away, thought it was intentional!

    I didn't notice (very ashamed of myself) but it's all I can see now. It would be a rare and invaluable printer who bothered to proofread customers' work before a print job.

    I used to do it and once changed the q to a g in the word 'quide/guide' on a huge rear-illuminated transparency poster which was intended for display at the airport. The customer was livid and said that the slogan had been written by the company's sales director who had studied in the States for two years and certainly knew English a lot better than some mouse-pushing twat in a print works.

    So the whole thing was redone at vast expense with 'Let xxx be Your quide to Finland'. And I got a written warning. Lessons were learned, except by the deserving.

    Finns like capitalising You and Your in the middle of sentences too and continue to insist on it despite my advice.

    I always correct things. I can't morally put out something I've noticed an error with, and no-one's had a problem with it yet.

    The other day I did a poster for a clarinet summer school, and changed the word 'saxophone' to 'clarinet'. Customer was very happy with me.

    They should be disappointed with themselves.

    Yeah honestly all my years in printing we did our best to catch errors. There's only so much you can do on some work, but on something that small I'm blown away the press operator never caught it.

    On something that small I'm blown away the designer typeset it with such a glaring error.

    Only time I correct typos is after pointing them out to clients and getting their written approval to change.
    Unless, of course, I've written the content in the first place then that's my problem!

    Some people can't spell though.

    Yerp, I would never change a typo without checking with client, shouldn't be updating copy without consent.

    The typo should have been caught at some point, amazing it got through. Unless it is deliberate. OP hasn't been back, has he?

    I tend to correct, then let them know everything that's been altered when it goes back for them to check. They always appreciate me picking up on it, and it not being extra work for them.
