Houston, Suite 2 ufaking technology to boort" By DA YID DEKUNDER Staff Writer_ A map of Canyon Lake printed up by an Arlington map company has bike businesses and the Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce fuming over errors. “We want to make the advertisers very well aware that the chamber apologizes for any problems and that we are trying to get the map reprinted and corrected,” chamber president Richard K. Smith said. Smith said that in November DAL Map Co. of Arlington approached the chamber with a deal in which they would print up an official map of Canyon Lake. DAL promised to give the chamber 3,000 free mips to sell and IO percent of die advertising revenue sales. DAL began to sell ads in November to Canyon Lake businesses. DAL “ended up overselling, they had too many ads for one map,” Smith said. “DAL wanted to publish two imps. But the advertisers felt that was unfair because all of them wouldn’t be on the official map of Canyon Lake. The advertisers would have to pay for a second map. So, we told them to I mw SSS #£#*»• ~    Otomod STEAK‘NSf« SHRIMP take off the promos and remove the photos and make it so that all the advertisers would be on one mao.” DAL gave the first proofs to the chamber. DAL was supposed to give the corrected map proofs to die chamber so that the advertisers could make sure everything was okay. Smith said. However, Smith said, DAL recently reprinted the map and sent out 20,000 copies without giving the chandler die proofs to check and make sure everything was correct on them. The map had one major error — Starkville is (respelled “Spartzville ” Intersections on die map are obliterated in both Startzville and Sadler by the town names. *1 have had 20 advertisers complain of either mistakes or errors (on their ads),” Smith said. “Some of die ads are frizzy, such as the chamber’s logo, and some of die ads are good.” Possibly die biggest mistake is for Dr. R. Matin Lambert, whose name is “Lambert R. Martin, M.D.” Also, the Canyon Lake number for the New Braunfels Title Company office is left off. The ad lists the San Antonio and New Braunfels offices This is so unnecessary. lf they would have just sent us the proofs, tho public could have viewed It and this would have boon avoided.’ — Richard Smith Canyon Lake chamber president phone numbers. “It all may sound petty, but considering what die ads cost the complaints are major,” Smith said. Smith said $10,000 worth of ads were sold for the map. “We have made desperate calls to DAL, but they have not agreed to reprint the map,” Smith said. “All that we are asking them to do is to call the advertisers (and make die corrections). “This is so unnecessary. If they would have just sent us the proofs, the public could have viewed it and this would have been avoided.” Last week, the Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors authorized Smith to send letters to both the Better Business Bureau and the state Attorney General’s office. The letters were sent last week, so the chamber has not received a response from either entity yet, Smith said. Smith said the chamber board of 1 directors has not discussed any other course of action, such as legal action, to get die company to reprint the maps correcdy.
