A blast from the past
Memories fade and, as certain social media platforms, social media can disappear without a trace as well. But print stands the test of time, and there are few memories more precious than those from our school days. As a way of preserving them, yearbooks and school magazines remain vital to connecting past with present.
Of course, yearbooks and magazines – together with other educational collateral such as pamphlets and guides – must set a much higher standard of quality than ephemeral printed material. Embossing, professional typesetting, high colour accuracy, quality bindings, and more will help to enhance both their emotional impact and longevity.
To achieve this, outsourcing of their magazine production is seen by many schools as the only viable option. But the sales markups and long turnaround times of external print shops – especially during graduation periods and other peak times – can cause their own challenges.
Fortunately, the latest digital document production technology offers a compelling and economical alternative to premium print outsourcing. From design and layout to printing, binding and distribution, it can handle the full workflow of any educational publishing task with ease.
