Aargh what a cock up

Aaaargh I am so angry with myself.

It just occurred to me this afternoon that the company that prints my magazine hadn’t let me know when the proofs were online for me to check – I only thought about it now because I had an email from them on a vaguely related matter. So I decided to have a quick look anyway, even though the magazine has already been printed, waited ages for the file to download (I send individual page PDFs which are put together into one big file) and then discovered that for some reason the logo on one of the ads (full page, new client) has disappeared.

My fault entirely – it’s happened somehow when I re-did all the pages to add my new phone number and I’ve not looked at the top of the page, only the bottom – where the number was – so it means Blakes Wine Bar now have this lovely ad that doesn’t actually mention their name.

Oddly no one at the printers picked it up and I’ve just asked them why I didn’t get asked to check the proofs as usual and apparently because I sent the pages through a bit later because of changing the number there wasn’t time for the proofing process – although they said it was fine me sending things a day late.

AAAAARGH!!!!!

So now I’m going to have to go in to see the client and grovel and offer them a full refund (well, not to pay as they haven’t yet) and promise faithfully to get it right next issue.

Gutted ……. can’t believe I’ve screwed up so badly. ๐Ÿ™
