Making a yearbook can be a tough commitment for schools on a budget. When it comes to money, the stresses of dealing with the unknown can be reason enough to shy away from a yearbook project.
Entourage Yearbooks understands this burden, and has therefore found a way for schools to breathe a sigh of relief when it comes to starting a yearbook program. Rather than dealing with the burden yourself, why not let our yearbook company help take the weight off?
Entourage’s Yearbook Champion Program is a no-risk yearbook program that offers special pricing for schools on a budget. Since it can sometimes be tough to commit to selling a set number of yearbooks, Entourage offers a flat rate for Yearbook Champions. This means that whether you sell one book, 20 books, or even 100 books, you can secure a flat rate per book.
This yearbook program allows you to create a quality yearbook without having to run the risk of spending extra money on unused books. In this way, you can focus on meeting your yearbook requirements and deadlines, and leave the financial stresses behind.
For only $200, you can sign up and receive your yearbook software, along with access to your digital yearbook kit, webinars, personal yearbook website, and online sales.
In turn, your online yearbook will be stored for two years. This, along with your Yearbook as a Small Business guide, will allow for additional yearbook sales.
When starting your yearbook program with Entourage, your yearbook kit will include the exclusive Yearbook as a Small Business guide. This guide teaches you how to organize your yearbook staff in order to manage the planning, marketing, and sales of your yearbook. It teaches you how to reach out and keep your students excited about their yearbooks. This can be a big help when looking to raise money for next year’s yearbooks.
Your account manager is always here for you to assist with design and tech support, and any additional help you might need with your yearbook software. Whether it’s a financial concern, a design issue, or a simple unloading, never hesitate to contact your Account Manager for help.
Entourage Yearbooks works with elementary, middle, and high schools to create yearbook programs for schools of all sizes and financial backgrounds.

A yearbook project can often challenge its committee members. Whether it’s a PTA meeting or a second job, there are always other responsibilities that fill up our schedules pretty quickly.
Many yearbook companies are finding ways to use online technologies to allow yearbook committees to work together. Entourage Yearbooks, a company that prides itself in its use of online tools, has figured out how you can benefit:
Learning Together: Webinars
Online meetings and conferences enable yearbook committee members to attend software training sessions together. Besides being able to simultaneously view ways to make your yearbook project better, it is fun to bond over learning and sharing something as a group.
Sharing Information: Personal Website
Rather than assigning one person to manage a yearbook, why not get more people involved? Online tools enable multiple committee members to log in to their school’s account to keep track of deadlines, manage yearbook sales, and upload photographs. Account Administrators can then select these photographs immediately and begin dropping them into their yearbook software.
Never Missing a Moment: Digital Proofs
Certain events like Prom come very late in the year. Since it is difficult to push completion deadlines, events like these are often left out of yearbooks. With tools like digital proofs, you can upload pictures from Prom, submit your pages, and instantly request a set of digital proofs. This can cut weeks from your project timeline.
Saving Money: Customer Login
Online tools can help cut costs of travel and postage, leaving yearbook committees with money in their budget for other projects and events. This can relieve financial stresses and put the committee in a much better mood.
Connecting to your Yearbook Company: Online Consultants
Online tools make for a faster connection to your yearbook company; they allow billers, tech support, and creative and design consultants to be there for you immediately through webinars and online conferencing. You can share your computer screen and talk about your project the second a question arises. You can also access videos with hints and tricks that your yearbook company will most likely update regularly.
“Excellent customer service!! My account manager answered my every question (and there were a lot of them) and bent over backwards to make sure we had a positive experience. We were thrilled with Entourage.” -Waymakers
Selling Yearbooks Online: Online Yearbook Sales
Online Yearbook sales make for a very easy way for students and teachers to purchase yearbooks. This gives an opportunity to build more excitement around the yearbook project while being able to log in and out of their school’s account as they please.
Entourage Yearbooks is continuously finding new ways to bring technology into the yearbook process. Since design, production, and sales are managed online, yearbook committees are not only allowed instant access and support; they are allowed more time and energy to share this very exciting process.
