School Yearbooks
Cover & Binding Options


The pressed foil design fits in an area 15cm wide x 20cm high on the front of the cover.

Most schools use their crest along with the educational years within the design. You should be able to obtain a copy of the school crest or you can create your own artwork!

Your design needs to be high quality solid black & white (no shades of grey, colour or pixelation) full size digital copy or high quality print of the school crest or design you want to use.

When creating your own cover design, please keep it as simple as possible. A solid black and white line art drawing will work the best.
