February Yearbook Checklist

February Yearbook Checklist

Feb 12th 2018

Brrrr....it's cold outside (at least here in northwest Wisconsin)!  Sounds like the perfect time to spend indoors working on your yearbook;)  Maybe with some hot cocoa in hand?!  We've got your February adviser checklist to make sure you're on the right path. If you're looking for more high-school curriculum resources, have no fear. Check out our high-school yearbook curriculum ideas elsewhere on the blog!

  • Have teachers review their panel pages for correct names and faces.  We recommend either requesting a PDF proof and printing out/sharing with your teachers or sending a screenshot of the individual pages.  To take a screenshot, just Press Ctrl+PrtScn on a PC or Shift-Command-3 on a Mac, save as a .jpg or .png file, and attach in an email to the teacher to review.
  • Incorporate your theme throughout your book.  Now that all of the images and text are in place, the fun begins!  Take some time adding unique elements and graphics to spread your theme beyond the cover.
  • Keep those photos coming in!  Create a Dropbox account, send out "another" email, and continue to search for more pictures of the year.  After all, they are the most important part of the yearbook!
  • Begin advertising with posters, flyers, and emails.  You should have received your free marketing kit already (if not, just ask us!).  Hang those posters and send out those flyers to begin pre-selling your yearbook.  If you need more, feel free to download from our website!
  • Set up your online store with Blossom.  If you're designing directly on our website, set up your book price on the Dashboard, send out the Online order flyer with your book code (also on the dashboard), and watch the orders roll in on the Orders page!  If you're designing offline but still want to allow parents to submit orders on our website, just let us know.  We'll be happy to set you up with a free online store.

Finally, contact your Design Specialist or Account Manager with any questions! We're always happy to help!
