Please investigate a company called School Annual Publishing company. It was easy, fun, affordable. We got a 44 page all-color book with a custom designed softcover for only $17/book. We are a small school and publish the yearbook for our outgoing 5th graders only. Check out:

I'm just curious, what are some of the companies you are using? We have sold prepaid yearbooks for $15 and they have lost money each year. I don't understand how that works, plus the parents are not happy with the soft cover and color pictures. They preferred a hard cover (and because of the price) black and white picutres.

HI Dianne and anyone else willing to share digital examples of yearbooks. I have done the yearbook for a couple of years, but am looking for new ideas/ways to jazz it up. This is for a pre-k, so not too intensive, but I'd still love to see what others have done. If you're willing, please send suggestions or PDFs to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our school yearbook is a huge hit!! Almost all of the students buy one and all the staff does. Lots of pictures are sent in for the yearbook and sometimes it's hard too pick!! We sell our yearbook at cost. This year when we talked of not doing one, some new parents felt it took away from high school yearbooks, everyone was very sad!! So we are doing a yearbook again!!! Two of the three k-5 schools in our district do a yearbook, one does not. But they may next year!!

The yearbook company is offering 80 pages in their quote, I think that is an awful lot of content for 40 students. :eek:

That IS a lot of pages to have to fill, and it's going to take a lot of time. Our yearbook this year was 36 pages and we have 330 students. We did one page for each classroom except preschool,the morning class had one page and the afternoon had another, and after doing the sports and academic teams, choir and orchestra we had 6 "scrapbook" pages. Oh, and a memorial page that was the hardest thing I have ever done. :(

I'm thinking that if you reduced the number of pages, then you wouldn't have to raise funds...I'm guessing to cover the cost???
