Technically, whimsey is listed as a possible 2nd spelling (I checked to make sure I wasn't the one spelling it wrong), but it's definitely not the preferred.

Are they putting kindergarteners to work designing paper for them? Well, if so, congrats kiddies on the designs, but maybe you should have a big 1st grader do the spelling for you.

And no, I don't want to be on the spelling/grammar mafia, but a business might put some money into a spell-checking system. I have no problem with Joe (or Jo) Blow spelling wrong...and I know we all have such wonderful thoughts we want to get down that the fingers sometimes out-type the brain , but a business? Come on...~Judy

Could not agree more Judy! It's one thing to fire off an email to friends in such a rush that the idea is more important than the spelling-I do that all the time. It's a "hole" 'nother thing to let that many misspelled words get out on a product you're selling. Especially one specifically designed to be looked at over and over again.

Okay....I didn't check. Just used to seeing it the other way. But "incrediably"????? I also looked closer, and a word I thought was wrong was "absolutely". It looked like it was spelled "absolutety". But upon looking closer, I see that the last "t" was really a "l" that they had crossed with the cross from the previous "t".

I agree though. Surely if you're selling something, you might want to check to see if it's perfect!

I know...besides spelling they could use a penmanship class. I had trouble figuring out some of the cursive words, but assumed they were spelled right. ~Judy

Oh jeez that's just sad... on the other hand, imagine all the hype and the talk this will cause on the internet! free word of the mouth advertising! I bet it's worth printing one misspelled paper for ))
PS: whimsey is not in my dictionary.. must be an old form?

I can't get it to copy/paste, but the Merriam-Webster online dictionary shows whimsey as an alternate spelling. Maybe I'd let them get by with whimsey, but certainly not the other one. If there are two words on this page, how many of their other products have misspelled words?~Judy

I did check the other stuff and didn't see anything that stood out. And yeah, "whimsey", whatever, *I* sure wouldn't use it, but "incrediably" is a little unforgivable and makes me sad that I want something from their other new collection.

Well, I kind of hate to say this, but in their defense, I guess, the sample image of that paper on Carta Bella's own website has corrected both of these terrible problems.

Well, just So Happens that one of the originators/owners of Echo Park (Carta Bella) taught some classes at my LSS last fall and gave us his email addy.

I sent him one last night about So Noted So That he was So Informed. I'm not sure he was So Happy, even though my email really was So Nice, but we shall see!

I think they already have - like I said, the sample image of that paper on their website has corrected both of the misspellings.

No prob. It happens on threads sometimes.

You'd think, though, I'd have heard from someone by now - even just to tell me that it has been corrected, no?

Sorry, must have missed that! I think it is crazy that they let it get that far!

Not necessarily; the website seems a little broken right now. Wish lists are messed up, and when this thread was posted the OP had linked eight or nine items at the bottom of it, and none of those links are still there.

yes you are right, it's back up..
well on the video from CHA, the paper is shown and there is no "incrediably", it's all correct there. Can't say about the other though..

The actual paper is probably fine - the sample of that paper on the manufacturer's website has neither of these errors.
