Yearbook structure


Page ladder

Next up, we’ll cover the yearbook structure. In this section, you’ll share with us the structure this edition should follow and how strictly you’d like us to enforce that structure.


Chapter title pages

Title pages assist in navigation, clearly defining new sections of the yearbook and help give your yearbook a more premium look and feel. Would you like chapter title pages included?


How strict would you like us to be with page allocation?

Often, with yearbooks, there is flexibility with page allocation. For example, if a section is allocated four pages, but too much content has been supplied, and it needs six pages, how would you like us to proceed:

Design direction

This section will briefly cover the design direction you would like the yearbook to take. We’ll just cover some basics for now, as we’ll schedule a follow-up call to discuss the design in more depth.


How would you like us to manage the number of images supplied?

Typically, with yearbooks, if a section includes five images, we recommend supplying a few additional images in case one or two of the images provided aren’t suitable. This prevents additional back and forth and speeds up the overall design of the yearbook. How would you like imagery managed?


How would you like us to manage the number of images supplied?

In an ideal world, all imagery would be from professional photographers. However, with yearbooks, that’s rarely the case. Our designers will typically try and do their best with supplied imagery by default. For example, if an image is of low resolution, we will ensure it’s small so the low quality isn’t noticeable. Our designers will make minor adjustments, such as converting to the correct colour format. How would you like us to manage image quality?

Content and imagery supply

Here, we’ll grab some details from you on how the content and imagery will be supplied. That way, we can ensure we’re set up and ready from our end!


How will the content and imagery be supplied to Emroy?

* This is an optional add-on to make managing your yearbook a breeze. If you select this option and it’s not included in your quote, one of our team will discuss it further.


What method would you prefer files to be shared with Emroy?
