Copy preparation and proof correction. Marks for copy preparation and proof correction (extracted from BS 5261-2:2005)
Make preparing or marking up copy easier and quicker with this convenient, black-and-white laminated reference card.
The card contains all the necessary proof marks needed with examples of their uses. Using the British Standard set of proof marks will ensure consistency across your organization and you may benefit from a reduction in the costs and the time involved in extra stages of proofing and correction. This will assist in getting your publication or article to print and available at the right time.
Designed for use in the preparation of primarily textual documents the marks have been chosen:
- To be relevant to the needs of all users of proof marks and correction procedures to reflect good trade practice
- To be clearly recognizable, memorable, and be quick and easy to reproduce
- So that no words, abbreviations and contractions are used for marginal marks, as they have applications in only one language
- So that textual and marginal marks contain common graphic elements and, where possible, are identical.
Laminated 8-page cards available singly and in multi-packs
