What’s the typo? The pic isn’t totally clear on my phone. 

Never mind, found it. I had to look a few times though – I think most people probably wouldn’t notice because their brains would just read “can’t” since that’s what they’d expect. But I do understand why you’re upset, it would drive me nuts too!

There are 2 t’s on Can’t, and the comma is in the wrong spot, it says Cant’t.

Hm. I’m not sure there’s anything you can do to fix it, you’d have to order new ones.

I’m making my own invites, so I’d just make new ones, but I know it’s not that easy for you.

wooops! That sucks! It really is up to you, I am sure some guests won’t notice and the ones that do would just maybe point it our and forget about it the next minute. But, if you are anything like me, I bet you are not confortable with it. I’d really re-print them!

onesexysquirrel:    Maybe you can ask for the revision (since it sounds like you didn’t make them yourself if it will take 2 weeks) and then when you get the new proof back, take it to Office Depot or somewhere to have them print them. 🙂 I’d rather have an RSVP go out on slightly different paper than with a typo. But that’s me.

Girlfriend, that is not noticeable. I would never have noticed it unless I was looking for an error, and I’m an English PhD.

onesexysquirrel:  Eh I’m torn. I didn’t immediately notice it, and I would just have been like oops, type, and then moved on with my answer. I can see why you would want to replace them though, and I would probably just because the last thing you want when you’re already stressed is people being assholes about a typo.

onesexysquirrel:  better than me!

I’d designed my entire invitation/RSVP/Accomodation/Ceremony-Reception cards myself and sent the high res pdfs to my mom’s friend (a wedding coordinator & invitation maker) to print off since she’d offered & could get all the paper we needed. I went over & over them to make sure there were no misspellings or mistakes.

She gives me the printed off proof to go over, and I did not register any changes and it was the culmination of a few months’ work, so I was overjoyed. Gave the okay. My mom gets home this week, and goes to look them over. Typos. All over the freaking place! Typos that weren’t in my digital files! 

I went back to the physical proof she gave me and they were all there, screaming at me. Instead of using the high res PDFs, she remade them in photoshop herself and inserted errors. I didn’t even think to look for that, because I thought she’d used my files.

So here we are, the week we’re supposed to send out invitations, and we have to remake the entire suite. We all blame ourselves for not catching it/proofing it/etc. But at least you only have one tiny error on one piece of your invitation, rather than errors spread throughout all 4 pieces? Right?

I would reprint them. Once I notice a mistake, I must fix it. I wouldn’t be able to send them out like that.

I think I’d let it go… no one spends time staring at the RSVP card… either they can come or they can’t. It’s a quick checkmark. I, on the other hand, misspelled “November” on my invitations… that, I fixed. ha!

The mistake is pretty obvious but it is also a genuine typo to me as opposed to someone misspelling a commonly misspelled word or using the wrong “your”. But it would irritate the heck out of me to leave it and I would feel very silly sending those out.

HA I read it before reading your psot and I couldn’t find the typo. Honestly people are going to read that so fast that barely anyone will notice and if they do they’ll just laugh.
