If they did not, I told them they would be losing our business and we’d be taking legal action
I work for an advertising agency, and my main job is to make sure everything around here runs smooth. That includes all the ad placements, the ad revenue, as well as the ads themselves once they are in print. Well, we had a major disaster happen the other month. We were hired to handle the ad promotion for a new company that supplied cooking items for upscale restaurants. The ad was supposed to show a huge photo of all the different cooking products they had available, set up nice in the kitchen. Well, when we got the ad back, the advertisement itself was correct, but the photo was completely wrong! It showed a huge commercial heating and air conditioning system with a smiling certified HVAC specialist standing by it! They mixed up the photos from some ad for a heating and air conditioning company with the cooking supply ad! The client is not going to be happy, and neither were we. I am wondering about the heating and cooling company that got a bunch of cooking equipment on their ad…they must be having a fit also! I called the printing company that messed up and demanded that they fix this right away and send us the proper ad. If they did not, I told them they would be losing our business and we’d be taking legal action. Well, wouldn’t you know it, within 24 hours, we had the correction made. Sometimes you just gotta play rough! All in all though, I think the whole situation was comical looking back on it.
