I think mis-spelling your company's name trumps Whippet's mis-spelling of Croydon as 'Croyden'!

Oops! I meant 'Croyden'!

(or  'Croyden'!)


Edit: for reasons explained in the reply below!  ::)

What about you making the d bold instead of the e!!  ;D ;D

I've seen spelling mistakes on blinds before, particularly LEDs (presumably they get checked less than proper blinds - as you really don't want to mess up real blinds!), but never the company name.

Wilts & Dorset's artic Citaro only goes on one route and has a fixed destination display. It displays "Talbot Campus & Cranbourne House" - only problem being that Cranborne House doesn't actually have a u in it. The bus now goes around everywhere crudely displaying "Cranbo   rne House" with black pen colouring in the mistake!
