silvalia:  Oh my gosh, how aggravating! If it’s any consolation, they look really nice. And the food sounds great. How crappy about the mistake though.

We paid to have our invitations addressed by a calligrapher.  The front looked amazing.  But Darling Husband got our address wrong.  We covered up the return address with a label.  It wasn’t the worst tho.

They look really nice. If you decide to reprint, make sure to fix “parmesan” and “vinaigrette” too.

You make me feel soooo much better about my own debacle… spent HOURS making 175 menus, and then realized we had “crispy ricotta wantons” instead of wontons.

For 5 minutes I seriously considered just leaving it and crossing my fingers no one noticed… but the English major inside got the better of me, and then I realized I had “Fox Book” wine instead of “Fox Brook” so I smacked myself, tossed everything out, and started all over! So I feel your pain and am sending you good luck!

I was finally happy with the end result though! And on the plus side your menus look adorable!

Bummer. The theme looks nice though!

If you do end up retrying other DIY printing, it can be helpful to print on a regular sheet of paper to catch errors before printing on the fancy stuff. Sometimes it’s also helpful to have someone else read through it to catch errors. When you have looked at it for so long, it does get to be a bit more difficult to see the errors.

They are beautiful. I’m in the minority… Mostly because a PP noticed spelling errors, I would reprint. Now that everything is formatted would it be easier? Or can you send it off to a printing company so they can have the headache?

My fail? I spent about eight hours straight on my programs. The ushers didn’t know they were supposed to hand them out. They were perfect… And no one saw them πŸ™
