We offer easy ways to help you fund the cost of your school yearbooks! One way of funding your yearbook with Picture This Yerabooks is by selling advertising. Two of the best options are personal ads for family members who would like to congratulate their students and commercial ads for local businesses who lend their support. Local businesses usually welcome an opportunity to support the educational institutions in their communities. Selling advertising does require someone on the school's part to send out letters to potential advertisers and to collect business info, such as logos, but it can also be a very effective way of financing the book. For more information on advertising, contact us.
