Um, you have to get our book.

Sorry, don’t hate us, but the book gives more details about each mistake and how to AVOID them. PLUS, in the book I talk about the 11th mistake that you can be sure you’re guilty of!

You really need to get this the book.

I’ll even email it to you, but, as we say over and over again (and not because we’re printers though that does bias us), you really should get it in PRINT!

Despite all the eBooks, iPads, eThis and iThat, print is still in fashion and the preferred way to read stuff. It’s free for heaven’s sake. Just ask for it:
