Difference Between Bali And Levolor

  1. Seemingly good data but punctuation and spelling rate a D.

    Wear should be ware.

    Only the U.S. Postal Service uses the 2-letter abbreviation for state names. Articles, books and news stories spell out state names. Business letters have varying styles.

    The author is not a trained journalist or advertising or marketing professional.
