Yearbooks: Content, Photos, etc.

Which option is easiest to create my yearbook?

All of our yearbook creation options are really easy, and they are all explained on our How It Works page. However, we do think that our Professionally Designed Service is the easiest way to create your yearbook. We do all of the design work for you, at no extra cost.

Are all data and photographs uploaded online secure?

We ensure that we stick to the strict child protection laws regarding data and photographs containing children, and all of your photographs are stored on our secure server.

Can I use photographs taken by an external photographer?

If you own the copyright of the photo then they are fine to use. If the photographer/company do, it is best to ask permission from them before you add them to your yearbook. Most photographers will allow you to use them for free; some may incur a small charge.

Why do my photos look blurry?

It may be tempting to simply grab images from your school’s Facebook page or website ‐ but do so with caution ‐ it could be a specific size, too small for your yearbook page, and will therefore stretch and become pixelated.

Similarly, if the images dpi (dots per inch) is too low, the image quality will suffer. We’ve seen firsthand yearbooks with blurry/ low-quality images because they haven’t been high enough and its but a downer on things. We recommend your images have a DPI minimum of 300 to ensure a wonderful print quality.

Always check the photos in your proof before committing to print!

What are the binding options?

We offer three types of binding options for you:

  • Perfect Bound
  • Stitched
  • Hardback

Most commonly, we use (and recommend) perfect bound, which is also known as paperback – but the cover is of a thicker density and weight than the pages inside. Stitched is very similar, but is for fewer pages, with a more ‘rounded’ finish. We also offer a hardback option for those who want their yearbooks to be more durable. For more information, you can take a look at our Binding Options page.
