For a number of years now our school has used a local printer for our school yearbooks. The quality has been, in my opinion, not what it should/could be. Does anybody care to share where they get their yearbooks printed? I especially want to hear if you use an online source that produces affordable and quality work. Or maybe you have another creative idea around what you do for yearbooks? Thanks!

We’re happy with school annual. We get a 28 page 8.5 x 11 full color, softcover yearbook for less than $10 a copy. Their online editor works well.

We also use School Annual and are very impressed. We make our pages in Microsoft PowerPoint then use a pdf printer to produce high quality PDFs which we submit.

Darrel, how did you manage to get a price like that?
We are currently using School Annual. Previously we used Rememberme, which was cheap (~$5/book), but the durability was a bit poor.
With School Annual we are paying $15/book, plus the minimum order is 30, which is a few too many for us, but I think the quality is worth it.

I guess we did a bit of negotiation.We were threatening to leave. They won us back. We get around 50 books.

Darrell we design our own yearbook, save it at a PDF and have CPC in Harrisonburg print it for us. It is full color, 56 pages long; and we are purchasing them for just under $10. I am very happy with the quality of the books and the printing.

Our school uses Jostens. The quality is excellent, and the cost is about $15 each. I don’t have anything to do with the process, but it seems to go smoothly with the online editor and everything.
At the school where I used to teach we started from scratch with desktop publishing software and had a local print shop do the printing and binding from a PDF. This was a lot of work, and it took some trial and error to find a good print shop, but I think it was a superior learning experience for students.
