Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to produce a Yearbook?
That depends on several factors including how quickly you get all your copy in to us, but generally it could be anything from 2-3 weeks onwards.
What happens if we're late with our copy?
If your copy is very late, it can affect your delivery date, although we do try to work miracles and will always do our best to keep you on schedule.
Do we have to use the supplied templates?
You don't have to use the supplied templates but any pages you've prepared yourself should be sized correctly at 210mm wide by 297mm high. If you're using MS Publisher, Powerpoint or adobe InDesign then we supply blank templates already set to the correct sizes to get you started.
Hardy's are putting the content together for us, how should I send all the photos and comments?
Save the content for each page into a folder named according to the page number it will occupy in the yearbook i.e 'Page 01', 'Page 02' etc. Then upload it to the Yearbook Cloud Service. If you are unsure what to do, just give us a call on the number at the top of this page, we're always happy to help.
Do we have to use your fonts?
You should use the fonts that we supply or if using your own, make sure you save your completed work as a PDF file and send that to us with your completed template and the fonts used.
I've had my first proof, but I want to change some photos and text, can I still do this?
Of course you can, use the amendments form or upload your content to the Yearbook Cloud Service. We do advise however that major changes near the end of the yearbook process may affect your deadline.
I've collected all the deposits, do you want the individual cheques I've got or just one from the school?
Just one cheque from the school please.
Do I need to keep a backup copy of all the yearbook content?
Yes, please back up everything you send us, either to disc or on a hard drive at school.
How much does a school leavers' yearbook cost?

How much help do we get from Hardy's?
The first thing that will happen when you make an enquiry is that one of our support staff will contact you to discuss your requirements. If you are happy to go straight ahead then a full production pack will be sent to you via post. Within the production pack you will receive a Production Guide and access to your Cloud Service Folder containing all our yearbook templates and resources to get you started and details on how to upload your completed content. Our staff are here to provide you with friendly informed guidance and support every step of the way, we're available for direct telephone or on-line chat support during normal office hours or you can email us any time.
We sent you original photos for scanning, will you return these?
Yes, we send all your original copy back to you at the end of the production process.
What do we do if we have to cancel the project?
Please contact us as soon as possible. If in exceptional circumstances you need to cancel your order, then depending on the reason and the amount of work already undertaken by us, you may receive a refund of your deposit where paid.
