Protect the Memories
A 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.

Before taking on the responsibilities of the yearbook class, I was fortunate to attend a True Colors® seminar on personality typing that was offered by my yearbook rep.
Other than yearbook sales, the best income source for the yearbook budget is the sale of advertising. In addition to senior parent ads and student friendship ads, the business community tends to be a great supporter of student activities, including yearbook.
