Our School Yearbook Order Process
1. Book It In
Whether you are creating your school leavers yearbook Online in our Design Software or Offline in a DTP package please email us at email@example.com to let us know your required delivery date so we can book you into our Production Schedule.
2a. Sending Artwork if Designing Offline
If you are creating your yearbook in InDesign, Publisher or Powerpoint, please send us your yearbook via https://askprint.wetransfer.com
Please send your Cover and Inside Pages as separate files.
For the inside pages ideally we require high resolution print ready PDFs with 3mm bleed output as single pages (NOT SPREADS), so if an A4 Yearbook the PDF needs to be 216mm x 303mm. We can however also take packaged InDesign files or Publisher and Powerpoint files.
We DO NOT print on the inside front cover, so the first page (page 1) should be right spread, page 2 left spread etc.
If you advise the number of pages we can send you the spine width and cover spread specification (or an InDesign template). We advise you send us the packaged InDesign, Publisher or Powerpoint files of your cover. If sending the cover as a PDF it needs to be as a spread including the spine with 5mm bleed for softback covers and 15mm bleed/cover wrap for hardback covers.
2b. Sending Artwork if Designing in our online Design Software
If you are creating your yearbook in our online software once you have finished your book you need to process it by purchasing it and running it through our Shopping Basket.
At checkout payment stage 4 there is the option to either pay by Credit/Debit card or to choose the Please Invoice us to Pay Later option where we invoice you for payment.
Our system creates a print ready PDF file, which we send to you via https://askprint.wetransfer.com for you to approve along with instructions and information.
3. Your Printed Proof
If time allows and you are ordering 20 or more yearbooks we send you a printed proof so you can check your yearbook over before we print the full batch. To get your Printed Proof and to allow time to edit after seeing it, please aim to complete your design 1 month before you need your printed yearbooks delivered.
4. Final Edits
After carefully reviewing your printed proof either provide us revised artwork of any changes, or advise the edits for us to make to your online design project.
5. Print Quantity
At this stage please confirm your final print quantity, delivery address and required delivery date.
If you have not paid already online, we will invoice you at this stage for payment before we proceed to print.
7. We print and dispatch
We now print, bind and dispatch your yearbooks.
