Helpful tips when sending projects for proofreading:



  • Be clear about the level of proofreading your company/client requires. (We can discuss this at the time of job booking.)
  • Be realistic about what you can expect us to do for the budget and the time frame.

  • Keep us in the loop. Give plenty of notice of work arriving by email (or courier) and if your schedule changes, advise us immediately. With warning, we will do our best to adjust our own production schedule to meet your requirements.
  • Plan your deadlines. (‘Urgent’ can have several meanings.) But if you want us to work nights or weekends to meet your deadlines, please be prepared to pay extra.
  • Outline your job brief at the time of booking. (Click here for a sample briefing form.) This will save you time, money and issues further down the track.
    Include relevant information:
    1. A description of the project
    2. Contact person(s) involved
    3. Likely target audience
    4. Turnaround time/date required
    5. To whom the proofread work is to be sent.
  • Remember, working together ensures a quality outcome for your project. We may ask questions or seek clarification of the brief or work with you to devise solutions.
  • Tell us if you’re going on holiday or on leave and who to contact instead, especially if the deadline falls during your absence.
After the work has been signed off
  • Please acknowledge receipt of the work when it comes in. This is very important for both parties.
  • We love constructive feedback at the completion of a job. Emailing us what we did well and what we could have done better, ensures success all round.
