As schools close their doors for the summer months, one might assume that yearbook companies get a rest too. But that's not the case with the nation's top yearbook companies. The summer months are filled with initiatives, planning events, reflection, updating materials, and more.
"The summer months are actually an incredibly busy time for us," reveals Entourage Yearbooks Director, Ellen Dobro. "We use July and August to update all of our yearbook materials for our customers." Entourage Yearbooks is dedicated to moving into the new school year with new templates, clip art, backgrounds, and other yearbook materials that reflect the latest graphic design trends and technology.
Other top yearbook companies like Jostens and Herff Jones host several summer planning events for teachers and students to attend. These workshops help yearbook staff members learn about new industry trends and gives them a head start in planning their theme for the next year. Some yearbook companies, like Entourage Yearbooks, even host online summer workshops and training sessions.
"One of the more valuable summer projects for us is reflecting on the past year, gathering feedback from our customers, and making changes and updates accordingly," says Dobro of Entourage Yearbooks. "We're committed to making sure that we give our customers the best customer experience possible, so it's really important to us to respond to the feedback that our customers give us.
The summer months also give yearbook companies a great time for perfecting and launching new yearbook technologies. Many top yearbook companies have introduced new technologies into the yearbook arena over the past several years like Smartphone apps, advances in online yearbook software, and integration with popular websites like Instagram and Facebook.
"This year we're focusing on making our online yearbook software even easier and faster with more creative options," says Entourage Yearbooks Web Team Manager, Nicole Rossi. "We're going to be testing and launching a lot of new exciting material over the next several months. "
Lastly, almost all of the top yearbook companies are still making yearbooks through the summer months. There are a lot of schools who don't finish their books before the end of the school year, or just prefer to have their books deliver in the Fall. The top yearbook companies are equipped to support yearbook customers through the entire summer and continue to deliver yearbooks year round.
