    A. Yes, you may request 2 ads and they will be placed side by side in the yearbook.


    Q. What if I want more pictures in a senior ad than is recommended?

    A. We understand it is hard to choose pictures, but the more pictures you have the more cluttered the page looks.

    We recommend NO MORE than 18 to 20 photos.


    Q. Can I layout the ad at home on a piece of paper indicating where the pictures and the message may go?

    A.  That is a great idea, you can also look at past yearbooks to get an idea of the style you may like

    for us to re-create.


    Q. Can I complete the ad on the computer and turn it in as a finished product?

    A. Yes, but it must be 8.5 X 11 size, JPEG pictures only, and the pictures must be 300 DPI. It is best to get the

    yearbook staff to create the ad,  because we have the software and have the exact dimensions.
