Main stages of the yearbook process

We will create design concepts based on your Pinterest boards and design brief. Give us your feedback and we refine until it is just right.

03 Supply content & page plan

Using our yearbook management software create your page plan and allocate staff to the articles.

Customised Yearbooks FAQ

  • There are no hidden costs with YOLO and we will make sure to be as transparent as possible throughout your project. You will receive a project estimate prior to commencing, and this price will only change if there is an increase/decrease in book quantity or page count.

  • With ‘Designed by YOLO’, after sending all material to YOLO, it will take 8 weeks for your books to be ready for delivery. This 8 week period includes printing as well as all layout and proofing rounds. It is a good idea to begin your initial yearbook planning early in the school year. This gives you time to gather content and think about design so that it is not a mad rush in Term 4!

  • On receiving your desired delivery date, we will work out a production timeline and send these to you. This timeline includes some flexibility for date dependant material such as prize giving. As long as you adhere to your deadlines and send in all required material, YOLO will be able to meet your delivery date without a problem.
