    ‘Developmemt’

    About 10 years ago on a stainless steel plaque for a fancy opening. I was ‘Q.A.’ so the engraver typed it wrong, he checked his proofs, I checked the proof, then passed the final. Customer passed it…but a guest noticed it. Whoopsie!

    From that day on, I’ve checked the LETTERS not just the words!

    Other than that it’s pretty rare a mistake hits the customer, ‘oblogation’ did about 5 years ago as part of a window graphic was another that made it past me, and the customer checking the drafts…eagle-eyed passerby did though.
