Setting deadlines early in the year will reduce stress and give you enough time to create a fantastic yearbook! So take a moment to plan. Tip! First, set your delivery date (at the bottom of this page), for example 1/11/2011, then set your editor’s deadline one month before hand, for example 1/10/2011. Continue working your way up the page.
- Before your trial account expires, ensure your order form and deposit have been sent to Fusion Books
- Before your content deadline, ensure all contents and photos for your yearbook have been collected. Make this deadline as early in the year as possible to enable ample time to design and proof your yearbook.
- Before your design deadline, ensure your yearbook cover is complete. The design for your yearbook pages is complete (special events that occur later on in the year, may need a separate deadline)
Allow at least two weeks for staff and student feedback. Before your proofing deadline, ensure:
- Your home-room teachers have checked over the spelling of students’ names and signed-off
- Every person who contributed to your yearbook should have signed-off on their contribution in the final yearbook
- Your Principal has looked at your complete yearbook, made any changes required and signed-off
Prior to your Editor’s deadline, ensure:
- All the pages in your yearbook have been proofed and ‘signed-off’
- You have sent “Permission to Print” to Fusion Books
- You have paid your Pre-Printing Payment (60%)
On this date your beautiful yearbooks will arrive at your school. Before setting this date determine when you need your yearbooks. Do you need them for your graduation ceremony or a special school assembly? It is often a great idea to set your Delivery Date a week prior to your special event, so you can have them sitting at your school stress-free!
