graduation ads yearbook samples
Alright, let's quickly go through how to upload an ad to Justin's. First, go to jostens.com and go to my school store. If you're logged in, select Gustine High. Scroll down and click on yearbook recognition ads. Type in the student's name. Now, choose the size of the ad. We'll go with a full-page ad. They have options for a full-page ad with a white border or a full-page spread. Let's pick the full-page spread.
Over here, it says you can drag and drop, but I haven't been able to get that to work. Instead, click on upload and agree to the terms. Go to your device and find the file you want to upload. Make sure it's the final version, not a proof. Open the file.
Once it's uploaded, select okay and drag it onto the page. If you accidentally hit your scroll wheel and lose the image, just hit the minus button to bring it back. Use the plus or minus buttons to zoom in and check everything on the page. Make sure the bleed is fine. We added extra room on the sides for printing over the edge.
Save your image and then go to preview and buy. You don't need to run spell check since it's just an image. Make sure everything looks good before clicking I understand and purchase ad. Once you do that, you're on the hook for it.
That's it! If you have any questions or need last-minute changes, let me know.
How to Design and Purchase Personalized Yearbook Pages
How awesome would it be to add your own photos and memories to your yearbook? With Peekaboo Yearbooks or Milestone Yearbooks, you can do just that. After you order your yearbook, if your school has enabled personalized pages, you'll have until the deadline to design up to 12 pages with your own photos, text, and layouts. You'll get the first four pages for just $5 total, and you can purchase up to an additional eight pages at $1.50 per page.
Once you have designed and submitted your pages, you will receive the printed yearbook. Flip to the back and find your personalized pages. This is a great way to make the yearbook truly your own with stories, photos, and memories.
So, how do you get started with designing your personalized pages? After you have ordered your yearbook, return to the online store and sign in. If your school has personalized pages enabled, you'll see a button called Edit Personalized Pages below the button is the deadline when you'll need to have your pages finalized by.
To design your pages, click on Edit Personalized Pages. You will see the names you entered at checkout when you ordered your yearbook. You can change the name and grade if needed by clicking Edit Name or Edit Grade. The name and grade will be printed on a label attached to the book so that the personalized yearbook can get to the correct person when it's delivered.
Above the name is the status of the pages for this person. Before you begin designing your pages, make sure you are on a laptop or desktop computer as the page editor is not made for mobile devices. Click Edit Pages to open the page designer.
Remember to always keep important information like text or faces away from the dashed line. This is where the page will be trimmed during the printing process, so be sure to keep things a comfortable distance away from this line.
Personalized pages always start with a right-side page. Click the arrow on the right to advance to the next page. Click it again to advance to the last available page. You start with four pages, and to add more, click Add Pages. This will add the pages in increments of two. You can have a total of 12 personalized pages.
To add photos, click the Photos panel and then click Add Photos. Here you can choose from a number of sources, including your computer. Drag photos from your computer or click on a photo source and choose the photos you want to upload.
Once the photos are uploaded, they will appear at the bottom of the screen. Drag and drop a photo onto a page to add it. To resize a photo, drag any of the corner handles. If a photo is not of proper quality for printing, a red exclamation mark will appear in the center of the photo. In that case, decrease the size of the photo until the warning is removed or replace the photo with a better quality one.
There are two ways you can crop a photo. The first way is by dragging the side, top, or bottom handles. The other way is to click the Crop and Position tool on the left. Use the slider to zoom the photo in or out and then click and drag the photo into position.
To rotate a photo, drag the long handle at the top or use the rotate buttons on the left. To flip a photo, use the Mirror Horizontally or Mirror Vertically buttons. You can also move photos forward or backward in front or behind other objects using the send forward or backward arrows.
To swap two photos on a page, click the first photo, then click the Swap button, and then click the second photo. The two photos will swap places. You can also add a drop shadow, stroke, or border to your photos.
To add some color with a background, click the Backgrounds panel on the left. To pick a solid color, click the page background color picker. To choose a design for your background, click on Find Backgrounds. Here you can search by entering a keyword or keywords into the text box. Click on a background to preview it on the right. From the right pane, you can choose to apply the background to the left, right, both, or all of the pages.
Now let's add a headline to the page. Start by clicking on the Elements panel on the left. Drag the Text button onto the page. Click the text box that appears and begin typing. To style the text, select all or part of the text. From the controls that appear below, you can adjust the font, size, bold, italics, underline, alignment, and color. To choose a color from an existing photo or other element on the page, click the eyedropper button. Then, with your mouse, click on the color you want to sample.
To adjust the width of the text box, drag the left or right handles. To rotate the text box, drag the long handle at the top. With text, you can also choose a background color of the text box, apply a drop shadow, apply a stroke or outline, and adjust the text spacing.
You may also add shapes and lines to the page. Click the Elements panel on the left and drag the Line button to the page. You can also click Shapes. Here you can browse the available shapes and drag the one you want onto the page. Shapes and lines can also be customized.
From the Elements panel, there is pre-made art for you to add to your layout. Click Art and then click Find Art. Enter a keyword or keywords to search the library. Click Apply Art to add it to your page or drag and drop from the left panel.
If you need to zoom in or out of the page, click the Zoom menu from the top right. At any time, you can exit the editor and come back. Just remember to come back and finalize before the deadline.
When you are finished designing your pages, remember to check spelling and that all photos look correct. After you have reviewed your pages, click Finalize and Submit in the top right corner. From here, you'll enter your payment information and click Place Order.
If you started designing pages but did not finalize and submit, the pages will not be printed in your yearbook. Once your personalized pages are finalized and submitted, you will not be able to make changes. If you must make changes before the deadline, go back to the store and click on Unfinalized to make changes. Remember to finalize and submit again, or the pages will not be printed.
If you need to order more copies of this yearbook that include the personalized pages, then come back to the store and click Order Another below the person's finalized pages. When the yearbook is printed, your copy or copies will include your personalized pages in the back.
Thank you for watching!
The Power of Yearbook
Hey, what's up yearbook world? My name is Mike Smith and I'm the host of the harbor by Jostens, as well as the host of the Jostens Renaissance tour. Every year, I get the opportunity to speak to hundreds of thousands of high school students about finding their purpose and their passion and using those things to make a difference in their school and in their communities. You're in a pretty cool place in life where the choices that you make now and the habits that you develop are going to impact you for the rest of your life. One of the best things that you can do for yourself now is start to find what you love, figure out the things that you're good at, and start to develop those skills. I call that finding your grind.
One of the cool things about being on the yearbook staff is you have the opportunity to try a bunch of new things, to develop a ton of new skills. Some of you guys are more creative, some of you are more detail-oriented, and some of you are really good at the marketing side. The cool part about your book is you get an opportunity to cultivate those skills. Even better than that, you guys have an awesome opportunity to create an incredible yearbook that will help your classmates remember this school year.
My favorite part about being on the yearbook staff is definitely that you can be creative, creating the thing that everyone looks forward to all year. Getting to know my school a lot, I get to use writing and photography for that purpose. It feels like a job in your wings, but in a fun job. We're able to take cool pictures, taking pictures, I've really found that I like to take pictures a lot. Being able to just capture the culture of the school and put it in principal ink that we'll be able to look back on in 40 years later and still kind of know what the whole culture of our high school experience was. It's cool to be part of something that's way bigger than just my life and just me.
In the beginning, I was a freshman that was lonely, a freshman in the class, and it was really hard for me. I was really timid, I didn't know anyone, and yearbook is a class we have to work with everyone. So, I think throughout it, I've worked my way all the way up to be the editor, and I think that's because it's really helped me with my leadership skills through the yearbook experience. I think everybody learns the skills definitely to work with other people. It's really a team effort.
One of the skills that I've learned is time management, and beyond that, I've gotten a lot better at just interacting with everybody. And I also just learned I got really good at InDesign, Photoshop, and just general writing skills. One of my favorite events that I covered this year was when the special education students taught the Spanish 3 class how Day of the Dead works. They showed them how to make sugar skulls and they taught them about people that were special to them that had passed away. It was really a unique thing to cover, it was really inspiring.
So this year, we kind of focused on doing more personable stories instead of just basic general questions that anyone could answer. So we sought out students who had unique difficulties in their life, and we did a whole double-page spread on 44 different high schoolers, one who had leukemia, kidney failure, alopecia, and they all kind of just shared their story. And it was just a personal quote from them, so everything was coming from their own voice.
As you go throughout this school year and you're building out your yearbook, I challenge you to think about the purpose of it. Think about the why, why is it important? Why does this book matter? I truly believe the more that you include people, as many activities, as many students, and as many teachers as you possibly can, the more value that this book is going to have. I've seen firsthand the impact that inclusion can have on a school. During my high school years, for the most part, I was in a clique. I was just kind of a cocky athlete. And I know for a lot of you, the yearbook class can get looked at like it's a clique. But my senior year, I made a choice. I made a choice to be more inclusive. I started hanging out with kids that most people walked past. It not only changed my life and the lives of other students, but it changed the culture and climate of my school. And that's the same opportunity you have with this yearbook. I guarantee you there are kids who walk the halls at your school every single day who feel like they don't fit in, they don't feel like they're gonna make it in this yearbook. How you think about those kids and how hard you work to make sure that they're included in this yearbook not only says a lot about you, but it says a lot about the culture of your school and your yearbook class. So my challenge for you is, who are those kids who don't think they're going to make it in this book? And what are ways that you guys can work really hard to make sure that they feel like they're a part of this thing, to make sure they feel like they're included?
I think it means a lot when people get their book and know that they are in it because it shows that they made an impact in the school. Whenever the yearbook comes out, the line to get the yearbooks is always super long. And right as soon as people get it, you can see how excited they are to run to the cafeteria, open the yearbook, find themselves, find their friends, see the whole entire year in review. I think when students get their yearbook and they see their picture in it, it makes them feel like they're a part of the school and it feels loved, you know? That's the best part. I'll be in your book.
I remember when I was in the seventh grade before I was in the yearbook, and my whole middle school, I was never in the book. And it was kind of defeating to know that you went through the whole year, you see all your friends in it, and it just kind of seems like you didn't make it through the school. So it just kind of shows that you had a place in high school. Everybody is in the yearbook at least once just for their portrait. But that's not a special thing because everybody's in the yearbook for that. I feel like when you're in the yearbook for other stuff, it feels good. So what we do is we design our book around coverage, and we set a goal to have 50 percent of the students in there at least three times so that they're just shown throughout. And that our students actually show an interest in the book, knowing that they're in it. Our goal is to get about 50 percent of students in the yearbook three or more times, but we obviously try and go above and beyond because the more, the better.
Honestly, we want different grades, diversity in students, and really strive for good content to cover the hard-to-capture kids in the yearbook. It's easier to, like, when there's a big event, to find them and take pictures of them and ask them to take pictures with their friends. It's really important to those kids, especially that when they get the yearbook at the end of the year, they're in it. Whether they talk a lot in class or not, they still probably have some really cool things that they do outside of school that they would love to be featured and loved to be known for. You have to not just interview your friends or people that you know, not just go to the popular school events. You have to put yourself out there and try to find people you've never talked to before to get them in the yearbook.
When I design the pages, I try to at least get 25 pictures on each of our regular week spreads, just so we know that there will be students throughout it. But also big pictures that we can have multiple kids in. And on top of that, we try to add quotes to art folios on the bottom of every page so we can get those students who don't want their pictures taken to also be covered throughout the book. A good way to get a lot of good coverage is with a lot of group photos. So, like in this spread, we have a lot of group photos of people. So it's easier to get a lot of pictures of people.
Some tips for getting your coverage: I really pay attention to the coverage report because it does give you the whole list of all the students in the school and how many times they've been in the yearbook. It's really cool because you can see the list of the whole school and all of their names, and it shows you how many times they've been in the yearbook. It's super helpful because you can know, like, Oh, this person has only been in there twice, we need to get them at least once more, or This person's been in there 20 times, oh my gosh, we have to cut back on them a bit. You have to go to lots of different events at the school, like club games, plays, orchestra concerts, because different people are at each of those events. And so to get what people are interested in and to find different people, you have to go to all different kinds of events.
I hope you guys understand the amazing opportunity that you have in front of you to develop new skills, make students feel included, and create a book that you're gonna be able to look back on decades from now and feel incredibly proud of. So, I hope you guys have a ton of fun this school year
101 Content Ideas For Your Yearbook
Hello yearbookers! Welcome to YearbooksLive, the podcast for yearbook teams to learn everything they need to know about the yearbook business. I'm your host, your coach, your teacher, JP, coming to you from sunny South Florida. I'm outside today, a little bit different. It's a nice day outside here in Florida, probably in the mid-70s. Not sure where it is or what the temperatures are where you're at, but it's beautiful out here, so I decided to come outside today.
Today, I'm going to talk to you a little bit about what content you can add to your yearbook this year. It's a little bit of a different year, and you might not have students in school. You might have some students in school. You might not be able to have a photographer come into the school setting. You might not have any events. There's all kinds of reasons why content may be a problem this year, but I'm going to give you 101 content ideas to include in your yearbook. So sit back, relax, and let's get into it.
The last time we spoke about this topic, I gave you 19 ideas. That was when this whole COVID thing was going on, and it was first starting. Today, I'm going to point you to a PDF where you can get 101 content ideas, all kinds of different ideas that you can include in your book. Like I said, you may not have students in the school this year. You may have partial students. You may not have events. You may not have photos. You may not have a photographer, so you can't get portraits in the book. There's all kinds of content issues this year, and we realized that. So we created this PDF that's going to give you 101 ideas. I'm going to point you to that PDF here on this video. Don't forget, if you're listening to this on a podcast, go to YearbooksLive.com. Make sure you check it out. There's a lot of video content on there. We are a very visual podcast slash YouTube channel. So I want to make sure you go to YearbooksLive.com, watch these videos. It'll link you to everything. We'll try to put the link under here on the podcast as well so that you can see it right on the YearbooksLive website. So, our YearbooksLive is our sister company where a lot of this content is generated from, so you'll find a lot of this information there. There's other videos there as well that I think you'll like. Please tell your friends, help us get the word out. I would really appreciate it.
I'm going to go ahead and read you a couple from the PDF. I'm going to read you a couple of ideas that you can use for content in your book. It'll fill up a bunch of pages in your book with really cool, unique content that you probably have not seen before, that your students haven't seen before, that'll make this a really unique yearbook. This is still a really great year to do a yearbook because it will be a yearbook that these students have never seen before and they will never see again.
Just an example, you could do things in the book like What's your room like? You can ask students to take a picture of their room. You could do their favorite pets, pictures with pets. You can do things like your favorite virtual class where they take pictures in their virtual class while they're actually online, or what it's like in PE or our homeschooled PE or virtual art class, virtual music class. You can make sure you include all of that new vocabulary. We learned a lot of new vocabulary this year. We learned about the vaccine, the mRNA vaccine. New vocabulary to include in there would be obviously COVID-19, or all kinds of words that we've learned this year related to COVID-19. So all of that new vocabulary, you can include in your yearbook, which is really cool. Another really cool idea right now is distance learning superlatives. So you could put superlatives in there, things like best dressed on Zoom, the coolest home desk, best digital classroom, messiest room on Zoom, most likely to carry hand sanitizer in their pocket, most likely to cure COVID. So you could do all these really cool, fun superlatives as well. COVID acts of kindness, if you guys have gone and helped out at a food bank or to distribute food and you have students that have done that, you can make sure you have photos in there of those events. That would be really important.
So there's all kinds of stuff, like I said, I can go on and on and on. There's 101 ideas that you can download at YearbooksLive.com/distance-learning-yearbooks, and we will put that on here today for you. This could, like I said, be a really fun, unique, and cool yearbook that I really, really encourage everybody to go ahead and try to get finished. A lot of new content ideas, like I said, that you've never seen before, the kids have never seen before. This is going to be a fun one. It's just as important as any other year. There is nothing like it, and we highly recommend again that you try to finish this book, do whatever you can to get the content in there. All kinds of photos and ads that you can add this year that you might have never done before. So just go ahead, consider getting this content in the book and get this yearbook complete. As much as we would like, if we forget to, you know, we'd love to forget 2020. In 10 years, it'd be great to look back and say, Hey, remember when that happened? Remember when we had to wear a mask? Remember when we couldn't leave our house? Remember when you couldn't sit more than four or five people at a restaurant? There's all kinds of things that you can remember and include in that yearbook, and we encourage you to do so.
If you have any questions, you can always reach me at [email protected]. Again, subscribe to this channel, tell your friends, tell other yearbook advisors, tell yearbook classes, anybody you can. You can find us on most places where you can find your podcast, YouTube as well, again, at YearbooksLive.com.

Welcome to Cheap Yearbooks! Our books are perfect for those on a budget. They are softcover and bound using perfect binding, unless the book is thin, in which case we use staple binding. The pages are a combination of black and white and color, with the black and white pages helping to keep the price down. The size of the books is eight and a half by eleven, and we always try to bleed the cover to make it look as best as possible. If we can't bleed it, there will be a white border around the edge. The perfect binding holds the pages in the book very well, and it is durable.
We encourage creativity when it comes to the covers, as schools often come up with unique designs. The binding even has a crimp line, which adds a nice touch. If you prefer, we also offer hardcover options. The hardcover is color laminated and printed onto board. Keep in mind that hardcover books tend to be slightly more expensive, but we will always provide a quote for it if you request it. The production time for hardcover books is approximately two weeks longer than for softcover books.
