Proofreading Marks that May Interest Some Graphic Designers

So yeah, this post on proofreading marks ‘maybe’ of interest, rather than a valuable and important one. However, I do think it’s worth bookmarking for reference sake, and for general posterity. Why?

Back in the day—yes I’m 45 years old, and often resent it—I was fortunate to have done a 3 year apprenticeship for a large commercial printers, which included: typesetting, manual paste-up using hot wax and galleys of type on bromide, platemaking and the somewhat tedious responsibility of proof reading.

Gence for me, these proofreading marks are a bit of a throw-back, and it’s cool to be re familiarised with them.

Not sure many people use them now given the automation of spell and grammar checkers, however, you never know when you might get some text supplied by a client, with some funny marks on.

If you bookmark this, then at least you’ll not have to call the client and ask them to translate!
