On the first batch, I printed just under half of the invitations with “thier” instead of “their” on the first line. I ordered more invitations to print(I order half instead the whole amount because of the correct prints). Then on half of those I printed “Timthy” instead of “Timothy”. So now I have 75% of my needed invitations correct. What should I do??????? The “Timthy” doesn’t look as noticeable as the “thier” due to the curling of the letters but that is a name. Should I use “thier” or “Timthy” or dish out money I basicly don’t have for new ones to print????

If it were me I would only send out invitations that were correct. I’m one of those people that notice typos lol

I would probably misspell their before misspelling someone’s name in the invite, especially if Timothy is the groom.

I’d be more likely to let “thier” go if you don’t have the money to fix them. Sending them out with the groom’s name misspelled is REALLY bad. Thier is a much more minor issue.
First choice would be to order more, but I totally get that isn’t always practical based on budget. Don’t send out ones with his name misspelled.

Ahhh, that would drive me bonkers!! Honestly, I’d dredge up the money from somewhere and reprint them… Either of those little mistakes would make me crazy.

Don’t send out invites with typos. Imagine the backlash you’d receive if someone from your FI’s family saw the groom’s name misspelled.

I agree with PPs, don’t send out typos on wedding invites!! Make sure you have someone else proofread before you print the next batch…

I would never send out invites with spelling errors. Definitely spring for new ones.

Sorry, I have to say that if I got an invitation with typos, I would judge the hell out of you :/ I am a grammar snob though.
I think you should scrounge up the money to redo them, unless your friends and family aren’t the type to notice. (Seems unlikely though.) Post them here if you want someone to proofread! It’s often hard to catch your own mistakes, because your brain reads what it knows you meant to write.

@timbersgirl: I would not be sending out any invites with typos or grammatical errors. I would pay whatever it costs to have them printed out again correctly.

I wouldn’t send them out with typos, especially the name! This sucks and totally something I would do as well! I mess up every project I attempt! Sorry!

I would fix both and send out typo-free invitations.
