Hi bees. So last night I printed my RSVP cards. I swear I read over these things like eight times, and made my fiance read them twice. But I still missed a few things. Ugh. First, after printing about 25 (of 75) I noticed that I capitalized “Regret” but did not capitalize “pleasure” (Accepts with pleasure, Declines with Regret). I cursed at myself, fixed it, and printed off the rest of the cards. Other than that I was so happy with the way they turned out! And then today, I noticed another error. Double ugh. I wrote “We have reserved ___ seats in your honour” using the british u, but did not use the u at the bottom when I wrote “The favor of a reply is requested by…”
Do you think it is super obvious that one word uses the u and the other doesn’t?? I will need to buy at least two more kits to redo all these cards I’ll do it, but I’m not happy about it. If I do keep it, thinking no one will notice, what do I use on the invitation? Do I put “the honour of your presence” to match with the “honour” on the RSVP card and hope no one notices “favor”?
Am I making too big a deal out of this? My gut tells me to buy new kits and redo them, but if no one would really notice maybe I can get away with not. Help!

I wouldn’t worry about it! I mean, I personally probably wouldn’t notice, and even if I did I wouldn’t care 🙂
I really doubt most people will make the connection though.

I’m not sure anyone would notice…but if YOU will let it haunt you then re do them. I had a typo on 30 of my response cards: __ of seats have been reserved in your honor
I covered up the “of” with a rhinestone ugh!

I don’t think I would really notice either. Even if I did I wouldn’t think to myself “Oh my GOSH! I can’t believe Alleycat made such a horrible typo on these cards! The horror!” Not to make light of the situation, but if I did notice them I’d probably just remark to myself on how that’s something I would do and then forget about it 20 seconds later. Unless the people you are sending them to are editing fanatics I don’t think it will matter. Our brains quickly scan words and fill them in with what we recognize most often anyway. Don’t sweat it! : )

I would never even notice that. I think you’re fine 🙂

As someone who had typos on her RSVP cards…I reprinted them. It was late, I had read them over and over and still missed a couple small typos. It would have bothered me to send them out and I had bought extras just in case so I reprinted them. I think it’s up to you though, they’re not awful typos so it wouldn’t be too bad to send them as is.

Unless you are a graphic designer by trade and had planned to put it in your portfolio, it doesn’t matter. I always notice typos on printed pieces, and don’t think I would have noticed those.

no one will notice because othing is actually spelled wrong.

If it were me, I would NOT reprint or worry about it. 🙂

Phew, thanks guys! I am an editor professionally, so something like this particularly bugs me. But, I do have some extra rsvp cards. I could reprint some of them and then just send the mistake ones to our friends/family who wouldn’t notice or care (but not to my coworkers! lol). I just didn’t want to have to buy a ton more!

I’d say as long as you got the date, the time and any other necessary info right, you’re good. We had a typo in a card that had our wedding website on it, and no one even noticed!

I wouldn’t sweat it.. people aren’t going to notice something that small.. my friend had almost ALL her invitations printed out & realized they had put “Please join Melissa & Joe as they become husband and wide.” We laugh about it now, but it wasn’t so funny that day! They did have to redo them, but that mistake is a lot more noticeable then yours.

I don’t think I’ve even seen favor spelt with a u. That’s the word that it’s missing from right? (and being canadian, I’m all about that extra u in colour, honour, etc).
I doubt most people will notice.

Nope. I wouldn’t sweat it at all.

I would never notice those typos, so I wouldn’t feel it’s worth it. I realized after the fact that we wrote “Please RSVP” and I honestly hate when people do that. I can’t believe I didn’t realize what we wrote- I’m fluent in French, for goodness sakes, you’d think I’d notice that we essentially wrote “Please please respond”. Oh, well, I don’t think stuff like that really matters in the long run.
