Yes, unfortunately they did. The text was their mistake and they typed it incorrectly on the binding. My name, the author, is Schmidt. They Typed "Schnidt."
The text on the contract reads, "Please incude Bloodtooth Vocations - Schmidt, Schmidt, & Teske." as the additional comments. It is in small print and no one caught it until the final product came. It reads, "Schnidt, Schnidt, and Teske."
"Proofs" are a general term for a variety of options for seeing what your file will look like when printed is a proof. Think of it as evidence (proof) that what you put into your digital file will all come out on the printed page exactly as you intend: the right fonts, graphics, colors, margins, and overall positioning.
Is there any argument to them never fullfilling the terms of the contract, thus may it be considered a material breech of contract?
In the additional comments sections on the contract we wrote, "please include Schmidt, Schmidt, and Teske" This was never done. Instead they wrote "Schnidt, Schnidt, and Teske." Could it be argued we never had a product completed to correct specifications to approve in the first place...
Sorry, I jsut want all avenues to be explored. I fear their lawyer has already told them to ignore me... lol.
