Yearbook Size & Material Options

Before starting any kind of design or content work, make sure that the dimensions and the material the book is to be created with are finalized. This will make the proofing and printing process much easier throughout the creation of the book.

Gather Content

Much of the work for a yearbook lies in gathering and creating content. Documenting all students, staff, and team members within your organization is something you should prioritize before spending too many resources on design. Design and theme can be built concurrently with content gathering to make the most of your limited production time.
