Announcement Editing Options

 

Our Service:

We proofread your text and make changes or suggestions based on the level of editing you choose. If you're using an order form that allows you to type your own text, line by line, there is an option for you to choose which of the three levels of editing you'd like.

 

  • Level 1 - Basic: We check your day and date to be sure they agree with each other, we check spelling (except for proper nouns), and we correct any obvious usage errors. (For example, if you give us "Your invited..." we would change it to "You're invited..")
     
  • Level 2: Enhanced: In addition to the above, we change the punctuation and capitalization to conform with the best standards for social announcement texts. We also write out any abbreviations where space allows. (For example, if you've begun every line with a capital letter, and you choose this level, we'll "uncapitalize" most of them! If you don't want us to change the capitalization or punctuation you've provided, choose Level 1.)
     
  • Level 3: Comprehensive: In addition to all of the above, we proofread for grammar errors (first person / third person agreement, for example) and correct the format of the day, date and time so that they are consistent. We adjust line-breaks so that the text reads more naturally, and if substantial changes are made, we email you a copy of your submission and our suggestion(s), and will wait for approval before proceeding. (This type of communication is done in a text document and is not the same as a proof; a proof shows the final layout and font.) Level 3 editing requires an additional day and adds $.10.

*For specifics about the standards we use, see our proofreading guide and our page called "Write Your Own Text." These pages give details about how we edit your text, explains the most common errors that we see, and gives you help in case you'd like to polish up the text before you submit your order!

 

Note: If you select Level 3, Comprehensive Editing, the addition of one production day is not automatically calculated by our shopping cart. This time frame of one additional day assumes that if we send an email with suggestions, we'll have a response from you within 24 hours.
