Pet Peeve: Improperly Spelled Signage

This is a huge pet peeve of mine. I think this sort of error, whether intentional or not, reflects poorly on any business. I can overlook the mixed use of capital and lower case letters, that’s pretty trendy and lots of people do that in various places. However, using “your” instead of “you’re”, that’s just bad.

Does this bother you as much as it bothers me? Do you have other examples of poorly spelled signage or advertisements? Please share them with us on Twitter or Pinterest.

About That Personalized Gift Card Idea…

I recently wrote about Starbucks introducing their new etched metal gift cards. In that post I also suggested that at some point there would likely be a Starbucks card which would include “getting your card custom printed with images you can upload from your computer or phone and 2-4 weeks later your card will arrive in your mailbox.” Well, in my email inbox this morning, I see that Dunkin’ Donuts is offering such a card this Christmas. This was such a no-brainer. It’s a great idea to offer this capability, and $2.99 is a more than reasonable price. As you can see, the cards will still include the Dunkin’ logo, but the card front will feature plenty of space for your photo of choice. Will anyone have the Starbucks logo printed on their card?? What a visual that would be.
