The last day to buy a Senior Recognition Ad is December 20, 2019.
Family, friends and other loved ones all have the opportunity to show appreciation for their 2019 senior by purchasing a Senior Recognition Ad in the WHS yearbook. Senior Recognition Ad layouts are pre-designed based on professional designs and provide buyers the chance to submit special photos and personalized dedication text for their student. For more specific information and ordering Senior Recognition Ads, please ___________. Please remember to save a copy of your receipt for proof of purchase and in case there are any other issues with the ad. If you have any specific questions regarding senior ads or need further clarification, please feel free to contact Jostens.
A variety of sizes and prices are available to best suit the needs of a vast majority of buyers. In addition to the variety of sizes, multiple layout designs are available. Each size and layout design varies in the amount of photos and word count. Please know that all fonts, colors, graphics, and page background will be at the yearbook staff's discretion but will not alter the ad in any way.
TIPS for creating your best ad:
- Your photos will look and fit better if your photo is the same orientation as the picture box (horizontal vs. vertical orientation).
- Use clear, high-resolution photos. If your photo is blurry, it will be blurry in your ad.
- Choose photos from every moment of your student's life and pair them with a heartfelt message.
- Use the cropping tools on the website to crop out unnecessary background and focus on your student.
