Proofreading is the last stage before your work goes to press. It’s that final check of punctuation, grammar, spelling, typography, and formatting that happens after all the other edits have been done; you know, where we make sure your their, they’re, and theres are all properly accounted for and your commas and apostrophes are tucked into their happy places.
