A note about reprints and some lovely comments from our customers!

feedback2014

A lot of you are now having your books delivered and whilst everybody is celebrating the arrival of their lovely new yearbook, there are often a few people who regret not ordering their own copy! Whilst we can do an additional print run for you after the original order has arrived, these do tend to be more expensive so really push for sales before your print deadline! Often staff members like a copy to remember you by or for the schools records so don’t forget to ask them too 😀 Around 30% of the people we work with order additional copies after the first print run so try to get ahead of the game and perhaps order a few extra copies as spares!

We’ve had some wonderful feedback from those of you with early deliveries so we were keen to share this with you all! You might also find some inspiration from the awesome covers that Lee has created this year 😀

CV Skills – How to make your yearbook work for you

girl_j1a

Just this morning I was chatting to a student who had started a project with an ulterior motive in mind. She wasn’t making it purely for the memories (it’s a nice little bonus though) but as a means to fulfilling an academic project 🙂 Courses such as the AQA Baccalaureate include an extended project which lends itself perfectly to modern day yearbooking – you choose a project, research, manage and evaluate the process once completed – awesome right?! So with this in mind, we thought we’d discuss the benefits of being a yearbook editor in relation to your studies.

In some cases, such as the example above, the relationship is evident straight from the start but you might not have considered the CV boosting skills that are part and parcel with being a yearbook editor. Many of you will be facing interviews for college and university soon and why not share your experiences! By being part of the yearbook team you’ll gain:

  • Organisational/Time management skills
  • Project Management skills
  • Research skills as you source photos and other content
  • Design skills
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Proof-reading skills

and many more! So if you’re intrigued about how your yearbook can work for you, or if you’re a member of staff interested in the academic benefits discussed, just get in touch. We’re always delighted to answer any questions you may have 🙂  Reach us on 01223 503259 or pop an email over to us at hi@allyearbooks.co.uk

Happy 2013 customers

“Making the yearbooks was a fantastic experience – made easy thanks to AllYearbooks, the process is really streamlined. The team is incredibly helpful – if I had any problems I could get in touch with them and they’d help me find a solution. The books themselves are great, really professional and shiny!”
Callum McCutcheon, Student, Robinson College, Cambridge (University)

“I’d like to thank you for creating and delivering (to deadline) our yearbooks. They look fantastic! We are so pleased 🙂 Working with all members of your company has been a unique experience, where nothing was ever too much trouble and everyone was always willing to go the extra mile! We can’t wait to work with you next year! Our year 10 prefects have already started to gather photos and aim to ‘beat’ this year’s book”
Ms Bertrand, Teacher, St Gabriel’s College (Year 11)

“Thank you so much for your support! You have created an awesome book here, with the help of a few others – generally fault free and well constructed if I do say so myself! The collages are excellent and bring together what a great year group the class of 2008 were, and the cover looks amazing (Great job design team!). Unfortunately I have run out of superlatives to thank you, but I think you get the idea, it’s been a pleasure!”
Mr Atkins, Teacher, Angmering School (Year 11)

“Thank you AllYearbooks for a fabulous yearbook that our year 6’s will treasure forever. I thoroughly enjoyed creating the yearbook, the instructions are clear and straightforward. The team at AllYearbooks are fantastic, they helped every step of the way and made the process extremely simple.”
Ms Willocks, Parent, St Anne’s Banstead (Primary)

“Making a yearbook couldn’t have been easier thanks to AllYearbooks. Collating student profile information and photos was relatively hassle free thanks to the wonderful online system. The variety of artwork is modern and easily tailored to create a fun and professional looking final book. Everyone I spoke to at AllYearbooks was extremely helpful and understanding – I would highly recommend their services and will definitely be using them next year!”
Ms Kovacevic, Staff, Stratford-upon-Avon School (Year 11)

“The yearbooks are fabulous!! They look very professional and we have had a number of positive comments about the quality of the product and that it supersedes any we have had before. Our head teacher was very impressed! The process was so straight forward and having it online I was able to work on the book on the go with my tablet or my phone. The support from the team was excellent, nothing was ever too much to do and I always had quick responses to my questions with the online chat feature. Thank you so much for all the support in creating a wonderful yearbook that will last throughout the years as a cherished memory for our staff and students.”
Ms McEvoy, Teacher, Alec Hunter Humanities College (Year 11)

“We used Allyearbooks for our Sixth Form for 2012/2013, and we were very impressed. They updated their online system just before we started, and we were pleased to say that everything was easy to use. We had reservations about the complexities of getting students to sign in, but it was extremely simple and we got a lot of positive feedback from students. Perhaps the thing that we were most impressed with however was the quality of the books when they came – there were no mistakes, the designs and colours were vibrant, and every single book was perfect. We loved how easily we could communicate with the AllYearbooks team and how they tended to our every design detail. They made our designs come to life, and we are very happy!! Could not recommend them more!”
S Patel and D Thanki, Students, Beauchamp College (Year 13)

“The yearbooks are absolutely beautiful and we are so pleased with how they turned out, everybody loved them! Thank you so much for putting up with us over the last few months, we really do appreciate all the hard work you and your team put in and are extremely grateful to everyone involved. They really do look so professional and we will absolutely be recommending you to the year below.”
A Shilson and J Froggatt, Students, Parkside Community College (Year 11)

“I have worked with Allyearbooks for three years now. At first the yearbook seemed daunting in terms of workload but Becky took me through each stage with real care and understanding and has done so every year since. There is always lots of support, help and creative advice at hand and the books look fantastic. Boys, staff and parents love them!”
Mr Gordon, Teacher, Dulwich Preparatory School (Junior)
