Many parents in our area purchase a space in the yearbook for their senior- a “grad ad”. In it they include pictures from their senior session, childhood photos, and some words of advice for their graduate. In most cases, parents submit some digital photos and a few sentences to the yearbook staff. The yearbook students will put together something simple and unfortunately, something boring for the grad ad.
Criativo Photography here to change all that! If you have or are planning on purchasing a grad ad space for your senior, consider letting a professional design it! We’ll make sure your child loves looking at it and showing it off!
You can see some of our designs below that you can choose from. We are also happy to custom design one for you based on the images you provide. We can design a grad ad as a full page, 1/2 page, or 1/4 page. All designs are $100. To get started, you’ll need to purchase a Grad Ad Design here: http://criativo.shootproof.com/grad-ads. Please choose a design and size you would like. Once it is purchased, I will contact you to get more information about the pictures and wording you would like.
Grad Ad Yearbook Design FAQs:
If we purchase a grad ad design, what is the process?
1- First you need to purchase a design so I know you’re interested and the money part is taken care of: http://criativo.shootproof.com/grad-ads
2- I will send you a form to fill out that asks you to download the images you’d like to use, the wording you would like to use, your school’s due date, etc.
3- Once I receive that form and the images, I will have a draft to you within a week.
4- This is your first chance to tell me what you love about it and what you would like changed.
5- I will make the necessary changes and email it back to you.
6- This is your second and final chance to tell me what else you would like changed.
7- After making the final changes, I will email you the high resolution copy to submit to your school.
Will my design look exactly like your sample?
No way! Once I receive your images, I will arrange them in a way that is visually pleasing. I will change the colors to match the images. I can change fonts and different elements. I will never give an identical final product to two people!
How soon do I need to order it and get all the information to you?
Designing and revisions usually take about two weeks, so please purchase a grad ad here: http://criativo.shootproof.com/grad-ads and be ready to fill out the form I send you at least THREE weeks before your ad is due to your school.
What if I don’t love any of the designs you have?
No problem, these are just a few grad ads designs I’ve recently created. Purchase the white “custom design” layout and I’ll work with you to make a design you love!
Can you design my ad even if we used a different photographer for senior portraits?
Absolutely, as long as you have a print release and digital copies of your senior images you would like to use. I cannot used scan images without your photographer’s permission.
How does the design get to the school?
When the final design is complete, I will email you a high resolution file of it. Then you can submit it to your school the way they prefer. Most schools just have you email it to the yearbook advisor.
Let me know if I can answer any other questions. I look forward to working on your yearbook designs soon!
