Many companies hire proofreaders and copy editors for their ads, press releases, white papers, and other marketing materials.
They even hire proofreaders and copy editors for their internal materials, such as employee training manuals, policy handbooks, contracts, and similar documents.
But one thing that’s easy to overlook is to have someone proofread any text on the product itself. Many companies have paid the price by releasing product labels with typos on them. Some have even misspelled their own company name on their products.
That is a costly mistake because it can hurt your brand. Companies spend years building up their image, so it would be a tragedy to ruin that with one product label typo.
Even if you catch the mistake before shipping the product to customers and retailers, it can still be an extremely costly mistake because you’ll have to pay to get all of the labels reprinted.
Product Label Proofreading Services
That’s an easy mistake to make, but it’s also an easy mistake to avoid by working with a copy editor before you have any of your labels printed.
And it’s not just the main part of the label, either—you also have to watch out for mistakes in the fine print and details.
For example, many product labels include instructions, contact information, and a product description. Some labels also include the company’s background story. It would be embarrassing and costly to have mistakes on any of these once the product is out in the marketplace.
