I have recently been reminded of the printer I ran across who has a full-time proofreader on staff who reads every document it prints. As a political mailing specialist, you can imagine how much egg it has kept off its clients’ faces over the years.
I’m not saying that everyone should hire a proofreader, but once again, we are reminded that proofreading is a valuable service.
The University of Texas learned this painful lesson two days ago when it misspelled its own name on its printed player biographies. Instead of TexasSports.com, it printed TexsaSports.com.
Should the folks in the print room have caught the error? Not necessarily, but it would have saved the University of Texas a lot of embarrassment if they had. It’s all over the social media now, and you can imagine how much fun the sportscasters are having.
Thanks, MSN.com sports page!
