Hey everyone, how are you getting on?! Many of you are starting to talk about yearbook photos at the moment so I wanted to deliver a special gift for you to enjoy. We’ve made a fun photobooth prop printable set for you to use as you wish. Whether you want to spice up your profiles, create a fun photobooth collage or let your teachers show their fun side, all you need to do is download and print the prop set onto some card and attach to some wooden skewers or straws.

Our risk-free buy back scheme!

SHOP (1)

So on top of our awesomely low prices, we’re also introducing a risk-free buyback scheme – the first of its kind here in the UK!!! Around 50% of customers last year loved their books so much they wanted more copies, so we’ve introduced a better process for this moving forwards….

libraryBecause we work with a large industrial scale printers, ordering just a single book post-print can be super expensive (£80 in fact)!  And if you’ve ordered a premium book, we need a minimum of 8 additional orders to do a secondary print run. The new buy back scheme allows you to add 10% more books to your order at the checkout and confirmation stage. We’ll then add this cost to your final invoice so no upfront fees to worry about!

We trialed this scheme in 2016 and found that all the spare copies ordered were in fact sold to people who wished they had ordered a book once they saw the final product. It’s the case every year which is what compelled us to introduce this scheme in the first place. We’re pretty positive that after all of your hard work you will have requests for further prints but if you don’t need the spares, you can simply return them to us within a month of delivery and we’ll knock the cost off your final bill again- simple right🙂 What’s more you can accept payments straight away and you can even set your own prices for the spares if you’d like to charge a little more for missing the original deadline or for school fundraising.

As this is new for 2017, do let us know if you have any questions at all about this process and our support team will be happy to help🙂

Amazing alphabets

lettering

In 2016, I noticed many of you using text boxes to create form intro pages but limitations on font size were restricting the possibilities. Without further ado, lets kick start the new yearbook season with some shiny new goodies to address this!

alphabetsmockup

You may have spotted a new selection of PNG images available in your graphics and clipart area which can be found when you click onto the Pics icon on the left of your screen. This year we’ve added a new label to this area for alphabets to help you make dynamic title pages and loads more. Handpicked by our designer, these new PNGs can be built seamlessly into your designs for professional and artistic results🙂 Hooray! You can make them as large as you need, rotate them and layer them with other components on your page. I’ll be making some example pages using these fab new additions shortly so be sure to follow our Pinterest and Facebook feeds for these!
