On Nov. 11, Centennial’s Eyrie team began accepting orders for yearbooks and senior ads. For the 2013-2014 school year, the Eyrie team is cutting out hard copy photos and converting their production process to a completely digital one. This shift opens the doors to a new, easier way for parents and students to order their yearbooks and create their ads.
By cutting out hard copy orders, the yearbook team is able to spend their time focused on making the best book possible, as well as preventing any orders from being lost. Digitizing ad orders also means parents don’t have to come to the school to pick up their photos at the end of the year.
“You can upload all your pictures online, which is really easy because you don’t have to come pick up your pictures,” said Abigail McManus, senior and Marketing Director of the yearbook.
According to Production Manager and senior Maddie Albornoz, the process for creating ads online should prove to be easier for everyone.
“Log on, use the access code 5591 and press ‘Create Ads,’” said Albornoz. “Everything from there should have a step-by-step direction.”
In order to buy a yearbook or to create an ad, students and family members have to go to yearbookordercenter.com, using Centennial’s access code, 5591. From there, users can easily navigate to the correct window for ordering a yearbook, uploading photos or buying an ad. The deadline for senior ads this year is January 31, 2014. Yearbook sales will continue through early spring.
Going digital is not the only change to this year’s yearbook; according to McManus, students can also personalize their yearbook with a nameplate on the inside of the front cover, a dust jacket or autograph pages.
