Print Only Service – What are the possibilities?
If the idea of learning a new software for your yearbook design is daunting, why not use something that you’re already familiar with? Here at SPC Yearbooks, we welcome designs created in other softwares, and exported as a PDF file, or JPG and uploaded to Yearbook Hub (our online creator). In fact, you may already have done the design and just want to get it printed.
The Print Only Service allows the creative members of the year group to express their talent using a software which you are already comfortable with to ensure that you get your yearbook looking as individual and artistic as you like.
To create a Print Only yearbook, simply design the yearbook in a software you know well – such as Quark XPress, Microsoft Publisher, Adobe Indesign, Microsoft Word etc – and submit to us your print ready files in PDF format once it has been completed. Easy peasy!
The best way to submit your files to SPC would be to use our online file transfer service.
Just to give you peace of mind, whether you are a design novice or a fully fledged graphic artist extraordinaire, once you’ve chosen to use our yearbook printing service you’ll be sent all the information you need to make sure that your pages turn out perfectly – such as page margins and guideline dimensions. It is important to use these guidelines throughout the book so that you don’t lose any images or artwork within the binding or around the edge of the book. Please note that we cannot edit or change any of your submitted files once we have received them in PDF format. If you are having problems with your chosen software, please get in touch with your Yearbook Specialist straight away so that we can help you to resolve the issue.
All you then need to do is to make sure that you thoroughly check through your files before you submit them and the hard work is over – phew! Sit back, relax and wait for your yearbook proof to arrive. You will then have the chance to proofread and make any amendments you need to make and submit your new amended files in exactly the same way as you did before. Piece of cake!
