    Protect the Memories

    Protect the MemoriesA lot went into creating your yearbook — taking pictures, writing copy, designing pages — you get the idea. Once they’ve been printed and bound, taking care of the book so the memories will truly last for many lifetimes — imagine passing it down to your children and grandchildren so they can laugh at the funny styles and see you in your prime — is just as important.

    Several things will help preserve the book

    • Store the book on a shelf where it can be referenced by family instead of in a humid basement or attic.
    • Dust covers are an excellent way to keep a beautiful yearbook, beautiful. They protect the cover from stains, spillage or scratches, and be purchased with your yearbook.
    • Personalization is a smart option for any yearbook buyer. There are hundreds of yearbooks circulating through the school after distribution day — make sure your student’s doesn’t get lost in the mix by opting to personalize their cover. Contact your school’s yearbook adviser to see if they offer this option.
