Chris the Proofreader

I'm Chris the Proofreader, a professionally trained proofreader and master of the American-English language. My background is professional journalism, but I chose to work in advertising. Here's how I work: I have the most current version of Adobe Acrobat to work on PDF files fast and efficiently. And I have a color-coded system on Word that I designed that’s real easy to work with when proofreading Word documents. If you prefer Track Changes that's fine too. My job is to make your job easier! I use all the stylebooks most commonly used in advertising/marketing/design — the AP Stylebook, Chicago Manual of Style and Gregg Reference Manual — for correct spelling, style, symbols (smart, dumb quotes, ellipsis, dashes, etc.), content, kerning, consistency, punctuation and grammar. I also check for proper trademarking too. As you can see, spelling is just a minor part of the proofreading process. It’s all about details, details, details. I GUARANTEE absolute preciseness and perfection! Rate: I have only one hourly rate and it's negotiable if necessary by the hour, day or job. My passion is proofreading, not the money. I'm here to help you, not rip you off! I’m available on short notice 24/7 and I only have a 60-minute minimum. If it takes me 60 minutes to complete the job, that’s all I bill you for. No extra charges for working on short notice (last-minute jobs), overnights, nights, weekends or holidays. And I guarantee same-day turnaround for the smaller jobs and next day for the larger ones. Discount: The first job I proof for you, I'll give you a good discount so you can see how I work and what I'm about! Recent work completed: 2020 Princess Cruises Website and Brochures 2020 Princess Cruises Atlas 2020 Hyundai Genesis Brochure for all U.S. Dealerships 2019 Clairol Professional True Color Women’s Hair Care Products 2019 Audi Website 2019 Spirit Airlines National Ad Campaign If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll send you a current resume/references/rate and tell you how I can help you in a very fair and honest way. Respectfully, Chris the Proofreader
