In a Facebook yearbook adviser group, I ran across the question: I’m confused by Treering users saying they can customize two pages for free. Don’t you start with an entire book of blank pages? Well, yes. And parents get their own two blank pages. And advisers can add in recognition ads. And… why don’t we break things down together?
Your Yearbook Your Way
We have hundreds of blogs on how to design a yearbook from scratch and how to use auto-layout features. Let’s focus on the two areas that are student-centric; we are equally concerned about giving schools the ability to capture their story each year, while also providing students with the tools to tell theirs.
Custom Pages: Personalized School Yearbooks
Custom pages are two free pages that are only printed in a student’s unique copy of the yearbook. This is just one way Treering aims to create a more inclusive yearbook for schools.
Treering’s personalized pages provide every student—for free—the opportunity to tell their story of the year.
Senior Ads: Parents Celebrating Students
When it comes to school yearbooks, whether it’s 5th grade, or senior year, promoting and graduating students deserve special recognition. That’s why schools have traditionally offered optional, for purchase senior ads in the yearbook. These ads appear in every single copy of the yearbook and they create an excellent way for parents to celebrate their graduating student and do it with the school community.
Revenue from ads can be used to upgrade yearbook equipment and fund celebrations throughout the year.
The Case for Offering Both
You might be asking, “May I offer both?” That’s a big yes, and here’s why: proud parents will always want to share with the entire school how thrilled they are to see their student’s achievements. Traditional graduate ads in school yearbooks handle the job.
Meanwhile, thanks in no small part to all things social, students expect the ability to memorialize their very best moments, memories, and photos from throughout the year. Graduating seniors shouldn’t be the only ones. All students, from all grades deserve a home for their memories.
