- Decide the number of pages you want to budget for your yearbook
- Establish the content pages that you wish to include – maybe carry out some online research for ideas.
- Ensure you have good quality images
- Research your content and use well written copy
- Research the style of cover and binding options that best suit the school yearbook concept you have in mind
- Investigate the best type of paper to use for both the cover and internal pages
School Yearbook Print Finishing
Silk Paper – has a soft feel which can be considered more of a fabric than your traditional paper. It has a luxurious feel to touch. Silk paper produces a coating somewhere between a matte and glossy finish.
Gloss Paper – often considered prestigious and reflecting higher quality; it’s great for pieces with a lot of photographs or artwork. While it is ideal for photos and illustrations, if there is a extensive text in your brochure, it might not be fitting since a glossy stock can produce a glare that makes reading more difficult.
Uncoated Paper – this has a natural-looking, organic texture that reflects a low key, eco-friendly persona. It projects a message of attainability. Because there is no coating, there is also no glare – so this is definitely the best choice if your catalogue is heavy on text.
Perfect binding – Pages and cover are glued together at the spine for a strong yet flexible finish. This is usually the most common option for catalogues with a higher page count.
Saddle stitch binding– Pages are gathered together one inside the other and stapled through the fold line. A popular choice for smaller specific campaign or product launch catalogues.
Wire binding – A less common choice for catalogue binding but nonetheless a valuable option for many publications. Will open completely flat on a desk and are great for durability in workshops or showrooms.
In addition to deciding on the range of content to include in your yearbook, you will also need to decide on what styles of finishing are appropriate for your finalised book. We touched upon paper types and binding in the closing two bullets above and when you are selecting your printing services, these are components that you should expect to discuss. As a guide, here are some of the options that will be available to you as part of a conversation around print finishing:
