A yearbook staff shares their QR code success story

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

If you haven’t yet done so, you should head over to the Idea File area and read our feature article on QR codes. They’re becoming a popular trend with yearbooks, and a ton of staffs are gonna be putting them in the book this year.

Several staffs experimented with putting QRCs in the yearbook last year, and they’re now seeing the results.

Adviser Jim Roller and the Fort Dorchester yearbook staff were one of those groups that took a stab at QR codes last year, and he wrote about the experience extensively. There’s a lot of good information here.

Do you plan on using QR codes in the yearbook this year?
