With your theme decided, it’s time to think about options that will make your book shine. From laser cut covers or endsheets to adding a gatefold inside, your options are virtually endless. Here are a few ways schools added a fab factor to their 2019 yearbooks. Now it’s your turn; let your imagination run wild!…
Let’s say students went wild at the school Talent Show for a rock band of four junior girls who only formed their group three months ago. Your staff has photos from the show for the yearbook, but they would like to profile the band and include photos from their practices at home. That’s even easier with Walsworth’s newest mobile app, Yearbook Snap.
The yearbook signing party has always been one of the most valuable parts of the yearbook experience. Now that experience just got even better.
Most students and parents own cell phones, many of them smartphones with cameras capable of taking amazing photos. Think of all those cameras clicking away at sporting events, dances, club meetings, vacations, restaurants and all the myriad of places that students go. Sometimes if you want something, all you have to do is ask. And Walsworth’s Community Upload lets you do just that.
Imagine being able to pick up your yearbook with the mascot on the cover, scan it with an app on your smartphone and watch that mascot jump to life in an animation. Does it seem far-fetched and far off? It is not, thanks to Walsworth’s exclusive new Yearbook 3D mobile app.
A yearbook should be created for more than the eye. The book should feel good in a reader’s hands, and make them want to pick it up, touch it, hold it and open it. When you think about the theme and direction of your yearbook, think not only of the design on the cover, but how materials and applications can convey that theme.
When you think about how you want to include additional coverage in your yearbook, consider the importance of posterity – whether it is important that the information be delivered in a permanent format.
At distribution, when you hand out yearbooks, the students say “wow” as they see the cover. What if they said “wow” a second time, once they hold the book in their hands?
