1 The Ultimate Guide to SCHOOL YEARBOOKS A complete guide to planning and creating your yearbook PLAN. CREATE. PRINT.

2 Dear Yearbook Planner We know how hard producing a yearbook can be. That s why we have developed this comprehensive booklet to make the process easier. This guide walks you through the entire process of creating a yearbook from planning, to creating, to printing. To help you plan the contents of your yearbook, we ve included a number of guides, checklists, and frameworks. Our experienced designers have created countless yearbooks and share their secrets and top tips throughout the guide. Our experience and processes make it as simple as it gets and our friendly team is always on hand to give advice where needed. The Emroy Team 2 Need advice? Call us on

3 Quick Tips Organise your team Who is going to be involved, and what will they do? This is the very first question you must answer. How you structure your team depends on your school. For example, a large school with lots of students will need a larger team than a smaller school will, to cover everyone. We recommend splitting up the team into smaller, specialised groups. These groups should be defined by the task (i.e. proofing, photography, design) rather than by section. This will promote consistency and allow team members to contribute holistically to the entire yearbook instead of being confined to single sections. However, it is important that each department has someone who will proof the content prior to it being submitted to the yearbook team to ensure specific details such as names and photo captions are accurate. Managing deadlines Our experience with school yearbooks tells us that the single most important consideration is deadline management. But it doesn t need to be so daunting! Effective deadline management actually involves a large number of small, reachable deadlines instead of one major deadline (i.e. the final print deadline). Small and frequent deadlines improve motivation and result in less stress for everyone involved. Be realistic and allow extra time for delays on page 4 we have included a guide to plan the major deadlines. It is generally best to work backwards from the delivery date. Be sure to allow plenty of time for revisions because this is normally the lengthiest part of the process. HINT: Have handy a school calendar of events to avoid when planning deadlines. This prevents deadlines coinciding with busy periods or during holidays. The role of the Yearbook Planner The Yearbook Planner is the coordinator of the entire project. He or she may or may not engage in actual content creation, but rather act as overseer of the project. The Yearbook Planner should consult with the yearbook team, but is ultimately responsible to make decisions such as team composition, who is responsible for what, and when deadlines must be met. A critical skill in this role is the ability to delegate tasks to other members in the team do not make the mistake of completing the majority of the work yourself as this will only result in delays and undue stress for everyone involved. Plan ahead what is on every page You will need to develop a page ladder that shows what is on every page of the yearbook. This will assist with the following: 4 Determining how many pages to allow each department/section (use last year s yearbook as a guideline) 4 Organising the sequence of your sections 4 Providing a checklist to ensure you haven t missed a section during proofing or 3

6 Spread /Section Checklist Yearbook Example 4 Good use of grid 4 Strong theme 4 Consistent layout Follow this checklist to ensure the content being submitted is design- ready. Are all pictures high quality (clear and focused)? Do all photos have clear captions and people are identified? Does headline match font requirements? If a story is on layout, is it well written and free of mistakes? Has the text been proofread by someone else? Do you have permission to use the supplied photos? Do the photos and text fit within your allocated page space? Have you provided an overall description of your department rather than focusing on a single event? (if applicable) 6 Need advice? Call us on

7 Final Proofing Checklist Design/Layout Does design reflect the overall theme for the year and is it consistent with brand guidelines? Are images relevant, well-planned, consistent and used for a purpose other than decoration? Check the page numbers are consecutive and match up with the contents page. Does every spread have a centre of visual interest, probably a dominant photo that is at least twice as large as other photos on the page? Do designs incorporate column layout to make it easy for the viewer to flow through the page? If not, is the design clear and easy for the viewer to use? Are all the fonts consistent with the style guide? Check all the titles, subtitles and body text area for consistency of width, size leading and typeface. Has all blank space been kept to the outside edges of the page or been incorporated to create consistency? Is there blank space used consistently in each section? Is inner space consistent between sections? Are all the elements within the defined margins? Does picture/copy placement vary from spread to spread? Is the body type in black and white everywhere possible? Is type kept out of the gutter (i.e. 15mm on each side of the fold)? Does every spread contain a combination of horizontal and vertical photographs? Are all photos kept consistent colour-wise? Avoid mixing colour photos with black and white photos. Is chunking used to group information and allow for white space, so that the page avoids becoming cluttered and busy? Pre-Print Checklist Is your artwork set up correctly (A4, Facing Pages on, 15mm margins, 3mm bleed, text not outlined)? Package your file by going to to File > Package. This brings together all of the linked fonts and images. If any links are missing (indicated by a yellow triangle), relink them. This is only relevant if you are using Adobe InDesign. If you have not designed your yearbook using InDesign, have you supplied us with your images, fonts and any other links that may not be embedded in the PDF? Are all the images high resolution (300dpi)? Images that are less than 300dpi may print pixelated - speak to an Emroy team member if you need assistance with this. Colour mode - It is important to ensure all files are supplied in CMYK. This includes converting pantone colours to CMYK (unless your job is a speciality pantone print). or 7

8 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Q: Is one piece of paper counted as one or two pages? A: Two. Each side of a sheet of paper is counted as one page, like page numbers in a book. Q. We re thinking of a more local printer. Good idea? A: We specialise in yearbooks, your local printer won t. Their prices may be lower (though often they re higher due to our economies of scale) but they will only do the printing, not the full service. With us you get access to our experienced yearbook specialist team who can assist you with design, layout and can even come out to you. Q: How long does it take? A: We have improved our print and delivery times this year less than 13 days turnaround including delivery for most yearbooks.
