Yearbook printing technology is not only reducing turnaround times and creating more visually appealing products, but many yearbook publishing companies can use new technologies to save on costs for both the company and the client.
According to the production manager at Entourage Yearbooks, Edward Jo, “A door to door yearbook salesman model is inefficient. Internet online conferencing and remote desktop makes this position unnecessary. With a traveling yearbook rep, the school would have to call or email them for help, and then wait for them to drive out to the school. With the Entourage method, no matter where you are located, we can begin tech support help instantly as long as you have an internet connection.”
The Entourage Yearbooks business model is the preferred model since an estimated 20-30% of costs will be allocated to pay for the door to door sales rep. The Entourage model reduces costs with virtual technologies that allow for instant access within minutes. These savings are then passed down to the customer, making for more competitive pricing.
Entourage Yearbooks is doing what many businesses in America are doing today, using the Internet to streamline systems to be more productive. Jo added, “A yearbook sales rep who has a large territory may take several days before he or she can make a trip to a school that is requesting help. Time and money is wasted in these few days. We can help within minutes and keep production rolling for the fastest turnaround times in the industry.”
Entourage Yearbooks has also recently announced that they have made the leap to an entirely digital printing format. Digital print technology offers some of the highest quality imagery and resolution available in the industry today and the fastest turnaround times. With digital printing, customers can expect turnaround times to be as short as 2-3 weeks. Digital printing is also perfect for short runs, so schools aren’t forced to order additional books just to get a more competitive price.

A high school yearbook is supposed to capture all of the fun events and memories for each class. But for some, many memories go unpublished. Why? Because most yearbook companies require an entire semester to design and print school yearbooks, which means in order to have the completed product finished in time for the end of the year, print production needs to begin a few months early.
Entourage Yearbooks are the exception to the rule. The people at Entourage know that students want to look back on end-of-year events, namely Prom, and remember the fun and excitement. That’s why Entourage can have school yearbooks printed in as little as three weeks! That means an extra month of memories and photos will be included for students.
Advancements in yearbook publishing software and interactive design tools make it possible for Entourage to boast a 3 week turnaround time. Entourage is a pioneer in using the latest technology to provide real-time support to their customers. Instead of waiting for a representative to swing by the school, Entourage account managers can simply link their computer to a student’s for instant tech support, software training, webinars, or to just share in the progress of the yearbook.
Entourage Yearbooks also provides schools with cutting edge yearbook publishing software. The software offers an easy way to design and organize any yearbook project creating a complete yearbook layout in minutes. Their goal is to help students create a quality product in a fun and easy way.
Entourage Yearbooks offers four custom designed yearbook creation programs to help students through the yearbook designing process:
Students can also choose from a variety of fonts, templates and theme ideas to customize the yearbook to their style.
