Proofing Dinosaur Flannels
Another day and another interesting job for team members at Everything Dinosaur. Yesterday, whilst visiting a trade show we came across a company that manufactured bathroom accessories. They had on display a dinosaur flannel for young children, unfortunately, there were a number of spelling mistakes and inaccuracies on this item and we approached a person on the trade stand and pointed this out to them.
They were most apologetic and asked us to examine the other flannels in their range to see if we could find any other mistakes. The flannels come in egg-shaped packets that expand and reveal a flannel when they are dropped into water. The set consists of six different prehistoric animals – Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor, Pteranodon, Triceratops, Stegosaurus and Brachiosaurus.
Our plan is to immerse the packages into water and then once the flannels have expanded, we will proof read and check the information, making corrections as appropriate. It’s all in a day’s work for us, we do a lot of checking and proof reading for various companies and organisations, it is surprising what mistakes we uncover, or should that be dig up?
