Do Your Thing for Children in Need 2017!

We love seeing all of your fundraising events in your yearbook, and the photos make for such fun and colourful pages!

Whether you’re holding a bake sale, a sponsored silence or maybe the school are holding a non-uniform day, be sure to take a few photos so you can make a funky collage in your yearbook.

If you haven’t got many photos to fill your page why not get a budding reporter to write a summary of the day? This is a great way of filling up space and getting students involved with the yearbook process!

Terrific TV Trend Pages

When thinking about the trends that were popular during your time at school, it is so easy to overlook TV shows! Whether it’s Game of Thrones or Stranger Things, there’s no doubt that at some point the common room has been discussing the latest cliffhanger or shock ending.

Why not include these shows in your yearbook? We’ve come up with a fun few of ways to create TV-themed pages within your book. Tell us what you think on Twitter and Facebook.

Making a text-heavy yearbook page

Having a page full of text doesn’t have to look boring!

Many schools decide to include a few text-heavy pages in their yearbook for many different reasons – it could be a welcome letter from the editor, a farewell speech from the Head of Year, or perhaps a summary of the school year from a teacher or pupil.

We’ve come up with a few different ways to put all the text on the page that you need, while making it easy to read. We’ve even included font suggestions for you!

Using blank spaces effectively in your profile pages!

When you start designing your profile pages you may soon find that you have an odd amount of profiles that will not fit on the page neatly.

Rather than leave a single profile on it’s own page, we’ve got some great ideas to help you use the space on the page effectively.

Here’s our AYB profile page – as you can see poor Jeni is left all on her own on the right hand page! We don’t like lonely profiles so let’s do something about this!1

Deleting and shifting profile spaces

Let’s shift all of the profiles along by a couple of spaces so Jeni has some friends!

The most important thing to remember is that deleting a profile space on the page doesn’t mean you are deleting a person’s profile! Their information will automatically shift along to the next profile slot.

I want to add a title where Becky’s profile currently is – so I’ll need to delete that profile space.

Voila! Now just do the same to any other profile spots you want to be deleted.

I’ve decided to add a title and group picture to fill the remaining space on the page – but it is entirely up to you!

Using a background on your pages is such an easy way of personalising your book, and whether you are wanting a subtle pastel background, or something a bit more vibrant, we have the perfect one for you.

Be sure to keep an eye out for more new backgrounds later on in the school year too! And if you don’t see anything you like the look of speak to your yearbook coordinator – they’ll definitely be able to help you find something.

Creative contents pages

While adding the finishing touches to your profile and collage pages it is easy to get swept up in the creation process and before you know it your print deadline is approaching.

The first page anyone will see once they’ve opened their shiny new yearbook is page one (obviously…) so it’s definitely worth putting a little thought in to using the page wisely.

A notebook-themed background can provide a simple yet effective base for a contents page. Add in a hand-written font such as Cedarville Cursive and you’ve upgraded your contents page in less than 10 minutes!

For a subtle, pretty contents page like our ‘Rainy Day’ example all you need is a couple of PNGs and a matching background. Or go for a gallery effect by browsing through our frame PNGs and selecting a couple to box your page names.

If you’ve got plenty of pages to play around with you could always have spread your contents over two pages. We’ve gone for a video game style page with a fun intro to set the tone of the book. Use your imagination to come up with different themes that could carry on throughout the whole book.
