It's your year... make it a Classic!

Fabulous yearbooks for Australian schools, colleges and organisations.

The Yearbook Process

Yearbook coordinators know that producing a yearbook takes a lot of time and care! Selecting your photos and gathering your stories are, in themselves, a significant undertaking. Once you have submitted your yearbook content to us, we aim to make the design and production phase of the project enjoyable and easy for you. 

We will establish a design you love before we build the book. Then we will lay out every page with care and attention to detail. We aim to have each page as perfect as possible from the first proof, so the only corrections you need to make are minor ones. We know that you have spent a great deal of time and effort on the project already. Now you can sit back and enjoy seeing your text and pictures transformed into a publication you can be proud of! We aim to make the whole process smooth sailing for hard-working teachers!

We look forward to doing business with you. We would love to help you make this year a Classic!

Getting to know you

To begin, we need to know what kind of yearbook you have in mind. We will send you an invitation package with a postpaid satchel and a questionnaire to help us understand what you would like.

The postpaid satchel is for you to return the questionnaire to us, along with a copy of your last yearbook. 

All of this information helps us to understand your tastes, budget and needs, so we can provide you with an accurate proposal. When your school receives the proposal, read it through carefully to make sure that everything you want is included in it.

When you are happy with the proposal, you can accept it by signing the “Acceptance of proposal” and sending it back to us.

We can then discuss what you would like us to do, and you can give us the text and images for the cover and a couple of inside spreads. 

We will then create 3 design layouts for you.

Usually one of these preliminary designs will be ideal. You can go with one as is, or continue to refine the design until you are happy with it. Once we have established a design you love, we can begin to build your book! 

Building your book

You can give us all your content at once, or send it bit by bit as the content becomes ready. While a bit of text and the occasional photo might be OK to send by email, bulk content will require a file transfer program. Popular file transfer programs include Dropbox, WeTransfer and Hightail. You can use any file transfer program of your choice, or if you prefer, you can use FTP or post us a USB or CD.

Proof Reading: Nobody can see mistakes until something is printed!
Print out your running proofs to check them. Black and white laser prints are great for this. Mark your corrections up with a pen. 
Then scan it and send it back to us, or phone your corrections through. It’s as simple as that. 

When you are satisfied that your book is ready to print, send us an email saying that the artwork is approved. 

Final proofs

When your artwork is approved, we will send you a final artwork PDF proof. When you are satisfied it is perfect, send us an email saying “OK to print”.

When the final artwork proof is approved, Classic, your yearbook goes into the prepress phase.

The artwork for your yearbook is introduced into the printing system. A refined printer’s proof will be sent to you. Check each page against your final artwork proof, to make sure that nothing has changed in the transition.

Once you have approved your printer's proofs, your yearbook will go to press. 

Printing, binding and finishing

Printing, binding and finishing will take approximately four weeks.
