I think making a joke out of it would be cute!

wow, really sorry to hear about your magnets! And that the company won’t help you is unfortunate..

If it were me, I’d probably write the note to help laugh it off. I think what you have thought of is good. 

Is there no way to “save” them? Maybe with a little sticker or something? or would that look even more obvious..hmm.

A joke works, or maybe you could take a red marker and underline the mispelt word than look for opportunities to mispell words for other parts of your wedding on purpose. I think this could be kinda silly, fun and personal.

I can’t tell if misspelling guarantee in the note was a mistake, too, but it might be really cute to just put typos throughout the whole thing.

I agree with Jacqi…turn it into a joke. I think your guests will get a kick out of it.

I’d do the joke thing too, but just misspell 1 or 2 key words.  sorry to hear about that!  Glad you’re not terribly upset, b/c it’s just the save the date.  Get a proofreader for your invites and you’ll be golden 😉

I love the idea of a fun note, but the text of yours doesn’t really reference the spelling error and if I didn’t know the reason for it I might be confused. What about something along the lines of, “This is what happens when two people who can’t spell get “togethater” and fall in love! Can’t wait to see you at the wediding!”

I work in the graphic field and once a customer apporves a proof, and signs off on it, even if it’s got a glaring misspelling, we print.

 

They’re not screwing  you over.  They printed what you approved.

@snmcdowell: Genius!

Definitely go with snmcdowells joke 🙂

I’m sorry the company won’t co-operate, but usually once you click okay they print exactly what you have written- even if there are errors. Sucks… but they print so many things they don’t have time to proof each one!

I think a joke would be a good idea.  When we printed the notice in the newspaper, we didn’t notice that the name was mispelled in the little border on top of the notice (if they got it right in the body, couldn’t they get it right in the top part too?).  We had to pay half the price to get it printed again the next Sunday.
