About Us


Having worked in design and publishing for 15 years, Kelly Owen wanted to offer a focused editorial service to businesses, so Ultimate Proof Ltd was born, in 2004. 

The company quickly established a strong client base, providing premium proofreading, copy-editing and copywriting services, specialising in working for businesses, business publishers and authors.

With a number of regular contracts and one-off jobs, Kelly linked up with other professional proofreaders and editors to support the workload. Today, Ultimate Proof offers a reliable service to business clients throughout the UK and Europe. The company has a reputation for delivery of high-quality work and building strong relationships with clients. 

'My aim was always to ensure that clients feel they have a proofreading resource they can rely on, which is clearly managed and is priced competitively. I love my work and have a fantastic team who are there when needed, which means I can pass the savings and a wealth of expertise on to my clients.'
