As your yearbook delivery date approaches, here is some information that help get a head start on your yearbook distribution.
Your books will arrive packed in sturdy kraft boxes sealed with reinforced tape.
Each box will be labeled to indicate which box it is in the total quantity (i.e. 1 of 3) and the total number of books inside. Boxes that contain personalized yearbooks will always begin with Box #1 and will be labeled PERSONALIZED YEARBOOKS.
Your boxes will be packed with kraft paper and will contain a packing slip detailing the contents of each box.
Inside each box, you will find a packing slip containing information on the books inside.
To view your entire order list, you may download it from either the order confirmation email you received from us after placing your order OR from the shipping confirmation email that is sent when your yearbooks leave our printing facility.
Each book will be individually shrinkwrapped and labeled with an easily-removable bar code sticker.
Each personalized book will be labeled with the recipient's name and order number.
Because all non-personalized yearbooks are the same, they are not individually labeled by name.
There are a variety of methods to passing out yearbooks, but here are a few tips that we recommend:
- Download your spreadsheet and sort the list by the Personalized column, then by Grade/Homeroom. (Click here for PC Excel tutorial; Click here for Mac Excel tutorial)
- Each personalized book is labeled with the recipient’s name. Sort these books by class, grade or whatever category works best for you and pass them out accordingly. Make sure to mark the student's name off your list as they are distributed.
- Since all non-personalized books are the same, there is no need to sort them by recipient name. Reference your list to see if the student ordered a hardcover or softcover and pass out accordingly. Make sure to mark the student's name off your list as they are distributed.
