The beauty of print is that it’s everlasting. All the more reason to get every line, letter, and date in your planner just right. Our team of editors has been proofreading planners together since 2010, saving thousands of mistakes from being immortalized on paper. Yes, we’re being a little dramatic, but we take day planner design very seriously. It’s not only a reflection of your brand, but the lifeline by which customers plan their days, weeks, months, and years. Which is why we provide at least two review passes with our extensive checklist for each project, and even more rounds when necessary.
OUR PROOFREADING CHECKLIST:
>>> Fact-check all quotes against at least three reliable sources to ensure accuracy
>>> Verify all dates, holidays, and events against at least two reliable sources to ensure accuracy
>>> Check all text for correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling
>>> Check for consistency in line and letter spacing, as well as text alignment
>>> Check for consistency in all graphical elements such as “dinner” icons, check boxes, and use of color
>>> Verify ISBNs, copyright info, websites, toll-free numbers, and/or social media handles for accuracy
>>> Check tab placement for consistency and accuracy
>>> Check for consistency across multiple products in a collection
TIMELINE: Allow 1–2 weeks for each round of proofreading.
$800+ for dated day planners

“Heather came to us almost a full year ago, and she politely kept popping up in my inbox. We are so glad she did! We sent off our planner and they caught mistakes and questions that we certainly would not have caught on our own. We’re sending our precious planner off to the printer with full confidence that it is perfect. What a service!”Beth Snyder, 1canoe2
“It felt really great to know that someone with better eyes was looking over my planner! She found things I never would have found!”Ilana Griffo, creator of the Rule The World Planner, by Sugar and Type
