Coming Up With The Perfect Yearbook Quote

Coming up with the perfect yearbook quote was never going to be easy, which is why we’ve decided to give you a few tips!

Humour

Funny yearbook quotes are always a great finishing touch to a yearbook page. You could draw on a funny story from your time at school or try to come up with a witty one-liner (don’t worry we have some examples at the end of this post).

Confidence

Your school yearbook will be something that you look back on in years to come, so you’ll want to make sure that it does actually reflect who you were at the time. Having the confidence to be yourself is key, so try making your yearbook quote memorable and reflective of you. Remember, your yearbook page is really for you, so you can be as ambitious, confident and original as you like – you are your harshest critic after all.

When all else fails

The perfect yearbook quote doesn’t necessarily need to be your own quote. There’s nothing wrong with taking inspiration from a favourite film character, musician or author that captures the feelings you want to convey.

Some of our favourites…

Here are some of our favourite yearbook quotes from over the years. Whether funny, witty, confident or downright strange, it’s your quote so you can be as creative as you like!

Yearbook Process in 5 Easy Steps

Here at Boomerang, we like to think we know a thing or two about the  yearbook process. So we’re going to share a few of our secrets with you while you’re in that proactive, ‘back to school’ frame of mind. There are all sorts of things to consider when it comes to making a successful yearbook and they’ve been condensed into this handy list for you:

1. Form a yearbook committee

avengers

This is probably the most important part of the process and not enough students do it. Once you’ve cleared everything with your teacher, find out which students are interested in helping to produce the yearbook and get together after school or in a lunchtime. Committees are great because you can divide up the tasks & roles meaning that everything gets done quicker and more efficiently.

You can have as many people as you like on the committee but we would suggest keeping the numbers to a max. of 10 just to stop things from getting confused. Others may want to chip in but it’s good idea to have a core group to keep everything organised.

2. Decide on content

gatsby

So now you know who’s going to be organising the yearbook, you have some decisions to make. This part can get slightly tricky as people will have different ideas on what needs to be included. In your first meeting, try and put as many ideas down on paper and then discuss. It can help to come up with say, 3 or 4 things that you definitely want to be in there e.g. student profiles, teacher awards, memorable events, etc. and then go from there. The main thing is that you include the school memories that you want to remember in years to come.

3. Choose a yearbook provider (carefully)

Finding the right company is vital and it’s important that you don’t just choose the first and cheapest site that you come across. You need to make sure that your provider has all the tools to make your student yearbook a success.

Things to look out for include: help and guidance throughout the process, sample yearbook packs, an easy design/editing process and of course affordability & quality.

4. Don’t forget deadlines & proofing

one does not simply

Pretty self-explanatory. Make sure you’re clear on all the deadlines – note them down somewhere so you don’t forget! Proofing is key too, Boomerang will proofread each page but doing your best to eliminate mistakes beforehand will make the process much speedier.

5. Spread the word!

There’s no point putting in the hard yards to create the perfect yearbook if no one knows about it. Make sure you publicise it so that everyone who wants to, has plenty of time to contribute to and purchase one.

Best of luck!
