All the hard work that your yearbook staff has put into this year’s book – now comes the fun part.
For schools that receive their yearbooks in the spring, it’s only a few weeks away from those boxes of yearbooks being delivered to school. That means your Distribution Day event needs to be planned out.
There are several things to keep track of when getting your Distribution Day organized. That’s why Walsworth Yearbooks provides a ton of awesome content, all centered around Distribution Day, to get you ready.
First, start off by listening to the replay of our webinar, “Yearbook Distribution: Distributing Your Love Letter to the School,” which was hosted by Walsworth’s Mike Taylor, CJE, and Lisa Wallace, yearbook adviser at Fort Worth Country Day School in Fort Worth, Texas. Taylor and Wallace outlined ways you can promote your distribution event and everything you need to keep track of.
Next, download our eBook, Distribution Day: The Big Reveal. This free PDF covers all the dos and don’ts of Distribution Day for your staff and will ensure it’s a great experience for everyone.
But that isn’t all…
- In the most recent issue of Idea File magazine, Silver Creek High School adviser Erica King wrote a piece about how her staff has turned yearbook distribution from a chore into a fun, festive occasion. It’s filled with great ideas.
- This classic article from Idea File magazine, written by award-winning adviser Susan Massy from Shawnee Mission Northwest High School, covers a lot of important details for making your distribution day smoother.
- Many schools make sure that distribution day is a “Big Event” that draws a big crowd. There are various ways you can promote the day with a signing party, and this post provides some examples of how schools have done it.
Speaking of “big” events, that’s exactly what Walsworth wants your yearbook distribution party to be and we’re willing to back it up with support. You can order our Big Event materials at walsworthyearbooks.com/bigevent and use them to promote your Distribution Day signing party. Posters, fliers, backstage fliers, customizable tickets – all with our “Big Event” look.
Hopefully you have everything you need to plan the best Distribution Day ever. Good luck!
