    Default Question for ALL Designers!!

    How difficult would it be for you to include Canadian / UK / Australian spellings of words when you have word art, journal cards, etc. in your kits?

    Right now, because Fall is approaching, I'm finding a lot of kits with "color" word art. Well, I can't use it! We spell it "colour" here in Canada. Same thing for favourite, honour, labour, neighbour, etc. Or for words like theatre, centre, etc.

    Would it be very difficult to include both spellings? I know I would greatly appreciate having my Canadian spellings there in word art and journal cards, and I'm sure there are others as well. I just can't bring myself to use something that says "color" - it just looks wrong to me, and well, is wrong, if you are using Canadian spelling.

    Thanks!

    List of Words:

    American - Canadian / British
    Color - Colour
    Honor - Honour
    Favorite - Favourite
    Neighbor - Neighbour
    Labor - Labour
    Check (money check) - Cheque
    Mom - Mum
    Theater - Theatre
    Center - Centre
    Traveler - Traveller
    Humor - Humour
    Catalog - Catalogue

    I live in the U.S., but I can understand why this would be a problem. The same spelling would also apply to people living in Australia or anywhere in the British Isles. Something to consider.

    I am Canadian, and would love it if our spelling were included in wordarts, too. For things like tags and journal cards, a blank version would be great for those who don't use English at all.
