A package for the mysterious “Yearbook Time Machine” arrives…
Seeing the sunset from our office window we took to the roof of the building, camera at the ready, only to find we’d missed the best bit and locked ourselves out.
Tom just walked back from Brick Lane with this massive piece of cardboard… we’re about to make THE WORLD’S BIGGEST YEARBOOK!!!!
Articles are a fantastic memory-sharing resource for your yearbook.
The important thing to remember is that, ultimately, photographs can tell as much of a story as text so you don’t always need to write huge chunks of prose. A short, snappy, relevant amount of text is far more enjoyable to read than a great essay. Besides, you’ve probably had enough of essays! Keeping your text limit to between 150-300 words is the optimum readability for an article. Of course, it can be even shorter.
Here’s an article I wrote, as an example. It outlines the basic what, where, when, and has specific descriptive details but the main text body is only 174 words long. It follows the short, snappy model that ensures the readability of an article. After all, you write them to be read.
Oh, and choosing photographs that relate to text helps communicate the article’s message. If you want to include extra photos, you can always make a partner montage page.
Many yearbook committees will soon be deciding on how their yearbook should look, so we’ve decided to explain a little more about the design of our profile pages.
The profile pages are one of the most important components, if not the most important component, of your yearbook. With Yearbook Machine you choose a design style for your profile pages, which becomes a uniform look throughout your yearbook. This means that you don’t just have to have a traditional design, although they do look very nice.
We pride ourselves on being able to offer beautiful designs that contribute towards a truly stylish yearbook. We’ve many designs to choose from, and we’re sure we can find something that works for you.
As our website explains, we offer half, full, and double page profile pages. We have a number of designs for each, all of which consider the correct balance between images and text.
