How Quality Yearbook Printing Can Make your School or Uni Memories Last Forever

School Yearbook Printing Services – Eternalise each year’s memories and achievements with beautiful designs

How often do we save our treasured photos on hard drives or in the cloud never to be seen again? Yearbook printing is a thoughtful and beautiful way to eternalise the year’s memories and achievements.

  • School sports carnivals
  • Literature awards
  • Eisteddfods
  • Birthday parties
  • Dress up days
  • Graduation
  • Teachers

Give a yearbook as a gift or keep as a memento for your child to look back on each year. Yearbooks are perfect for giving or keeping for yourself to celebrate university graduation.

We can help with designs and ideas via our art templates or contacting our friendly team. Do you want to get started straight away? Go to our product page and order your yearbooks online.

Print Today and Keep for a Lifetime

For some of us, getting camera films developed was as normal as ‘syncing’ and ‘back up’. Then, we got to organise our photos into photo albums, give as gifts and put on the wall. Do you remember taking out photo albums and reminiscing over old hairstyles, holiday spots and seeing how the children have grown? They’re also a great source of entertainment when a teenage daughter brings her boyfriend home! “Oh mum, don’t bring out the photo albums again!”

Jokes aside, the nostalgia shared as each page of the yearbook is turned can’t be beaten.

What Kind of Paper is Best for Yearbook Printing?

When you make a purchase, you want it to last. Many things nowadays are manufactured to last only short periods (forcing further purchases). When it comes to keepsakes, gifts and memories, the last thing you want is to replace them.

We recommend quality commercial printing paper that is acid-free and has proven to last the test of time. We recommend Sovereign Silk paper. It is a versatile, coated paper that is reliable and high quality.

Imagine leaving yearbooks and memory books for your children and their children? What a beautiful time capsule and a great way to share with them their family history.

School Yearbook Cost

Advancements in printing technology mean no longer ordering thousands of copies to place an order. Custom print yearbooks in lots as small as 5.

5 Tips to Help with School Yearbook Printing – Get Organised and Have Fun!

1) Upload your photos to Google Drive to make sharing and collaboration easy.

2) Either jump straight in to filling out templates or draw out a rough plan on paper of how you’d like everything set out. Either way, don’t stress. Putting yearbooks together is easy once you get started. We can help you at any point along the way as well!

3) Collate group photos and the names of those pictured. You could re-name these, so they are in the order you’d like them to appear. You can also make notes of what pages you’d like them to appear on, for example pages 2-4 so group photos are first in the yearbook after the title page.

4) Not sure how many photos you can fit per page? Either talk to us or open a blank Word document and insert pictures. In Word, resize photographs to see how many you may be able to fit on each page.

5) Want to call in a graphic designer? No worries. We have graphic design extraordinaires ready to turn your year of memories into a yearbook of memories to keep forever.

A simple way to go about yearbook printing is to choose a template, organise your photographs and send them over to us. Layout design, pictures and any text you want can all be collated and printed in a jiffy!

We can’t wait to be a part of materialising the year in a beautiful yearbook keepsake! Just give us a call so we can help you get started, or to give you the quote you are searching for.

 

Printed catalgoues – still in

Print marketing  – have you seen IKEA’s bookbook ad?

Last year the furniture giant (who also happen to use direct mail for promotions), produced a video promoting their own new print catalogue. Not ones to waste an opportunity, they also take a playful swipe at the way high tecchies promote their products.

We think you might enjoy this cheeky approach to direct marketing using print. It’s beautifully done. Even if it makes you smile, don’t miss the not so hidden truth in their promo. There is a reason IKEA continue to print their catalogues in many languages all over the world and send 3-dimensional catalogues through the mail. They work!

Combined with their online catalogue, it’s a recipe for sales and marketing success.

Ikea is one of many successful iconic companies to provide their customers with printed catalogues. They join well known brands like Avon, JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.

The need to engage customers via print is unlikely to go away any time soon even if the economy takes a downward turn. As more product offerings become similar, printed catalogues and their content will grow as a means of differentiating brands and sustaining existing customer relationships.

Printing catalogues may seem a bit old school, but their physical capabilities and brand building potential are a proven staple in retailers’ marketing tool boxes and customers’ mail boxes.

This ad was first shown over a year ago. Sit back for a few minutes and enjoy!

Introducing the purpose orientated worker

This week’s Mindful Monday is a little different. We talk about Work and Purpose. It’s a post inspired by U.S based Imperative who recently released their 2015 Workforce Purpose Index. It makes for a fascinating read and although the study is U.S centric there are some insights that are very relevant for the Australian workforce.

According to the study workers with a purpose orientation are the most valuable and highest potential segment of the workforce regardless of industry or role. These Purpose orientated workers not only seek out purpose in their work, they create it and, as a result, out perform the rest of the workforce.  They work and thrive in every industry and role from accountants at professional service firms to the farmers growing our food to the designers at creative agencies.  According to Imperative, purpose driven workers are the foundation for successful organisations, a thriving economy, and a healthy society overall. On every measure, purpose orientated workers have better outcomes than their peers: 20% longer expected tenure, 50% more likely in leadership positions, 47% more likely to be promoters of their employers and 64% higher levels of fulfilment in their work.

To understand the significance of these figures let’s look at what work orientation is. According to Imperative it is a psychological pre-disposition to the role of work in life. It is a stable mindset throughout one’s career that transcends a specific job or employer. Some people see work in their lives as solely a source of income or status. Others are orientated to see work as primarily about purpose – personal fulfilment and helping other people.

As I have been re-imagining the purpose of Absolute Colour moving forward, I’ve focused on making our team and clients ‘be outstanding’. It’s an expression that we ‘walk the talk’. It’s really all about purpose. Yes, we produce wonderful print collateral in innovative and creative ways. But it is the pleasure I get in working with clients to deliver results that amaze and the joy that our regular roundtable meetups brings and that inspires me on many levels. It is about working in Colour. It is about encouraging people to be the best they can be. We all have a tremendous opportunity before us to define the success of our workforce by more than low unemployment rates, salaries and engagement. It is about people, the number of members of our community who are purpose orientated. We should be empowering our teams to tailor their work to build strong relationships, make a meaningful impact, and grow perosnally and professionally. I’d love to hear your thoughts?

What is High End Printing?

This blog post is unashamedly about what we do here at Absolute Colour. Too often I hear from people that yes, they know all about printing…. But like all industries printing has been dramatically disrupted. New technologies abound. Keeping abreast of printing innovation takes time and we at Absolute Colour are totally committed to ensuring our clients get and, indeed deliver campaigns that exceed their expectations.

So what is high end printing? High-end printing allows you to use print techniques and options that include a variety of special materials, techniques, and finishes. This allows you to make your printed items unique. Sure it is a little more expensive and does take a little longer to produce but if it is results you want this option should be considered. You only have to think about the number of unsolicited print items you still get in your mailbox that lack print creativity to distinguish the difference.. They get trashed pretty quickly don’t they, so taking the time to think about innovative and high end print items at the outset, often can be the difference between a great campaign and one that frankly doesn’t work.

In other words, it is vital you add print to your marketing mix but you must think like all cmmunication channels abour your goals at the outset. For example, I even know of digital companies that use print as their primary communication channel. Why? Because it is an innovative twist to what they do and of course because of the emotional bond that is created by touching and feeling their communication. This is then heavily reinforced through clever digital communication.

 

High end printing techniques can include:

  • Luxurious paper stock
  • Embossing
  • Foil stamping
  • UV coating
  • Die-cut
  • Metallic inks

If you want your mailer or marketing collateral to stand out and get attention then using foil and embossing will definitely do this. These specialized techniques add a completely new level of sophistication to your mailer.

 

Absolute Colour Launches Merry Mindful Christmas Colouring Gifts

Life can get pretty crazy during the festive season so this year we wanted to help our customers to send a special message to their staff, suppliers, customers and more. Instead of the traditional Christmas client gift or card, Absolute Colour offers an innovative Christmas Gift, known as the Merry Mindful Christmas Colouring Gift. The gifts include:

  • 6 mindful colouring cards plus a small packet of colouring pencils able to be inserted into a printed pillow envelope
  • Message: Have a Mindful Festive Season or Have a Mindful Christmas.
  • For orders over 100 gifts the messages can be customised with your own corporate messages and logo. Prices start at $9.95 per unit, discounts for volume orders over 100.

Five Ways to Wellbeing

Happy Monday everyone. For today’s Monday motivation I thought we would look at wellbeing.

Here are five fundamental components of well-being that have been documented by the New Economic Forum

  1. Connect to people around you – be present.
  2. Being active – go for a walk, play a game.
  3. Take notice – be curious about what goes on around you.
  4. Keep learning – try something new.
  5. Give – do something nice for a friend or a stranger.

Do you notice how doing any or all of these thinsg improves you sense of wellbeing? Would love to have your thoughts.

MIndful Monday: MIndful Conversation

At Absolute Colour we have a focus on working to deliver outstanding results for all of our clients. That requires focus and it requires all of our team to practice mindfulness. For us it is about really listening to the challenge our clients present to us and working hard behind the scenes to deliver the best and most creative solutions.

So today I thought we would share an exercise about mindful conversation.

As we all know an important skill for any relationship is the act of mindful conversation. Often we can ask questions without really listening to the answer, or perhaps gives answers without actually thinking of what we are saying. Try this today:

Make an effort to really consciously listen annd speak throughout the day. For example when you are talking to a colleague today and ask how their weekend was, really listen to their answer and respond accordingly. Go about your day focusing on Being Oustanding!

Print: Think Outside of The Square For Innovative Print Campaigns

We have been talking a lot about innovative solutions for print campaigns. In our experience at Absolute Colour, they are only limited by a client’s imagination.

Here are some great examples of what you can do with print:

  1. OPSM, to raise awareness of children’s eye health and improve the visison of children across Australia, released their ‘OPSM ‘Penny the Pirate’ campaign. A free children’s book, supported with an app, which integrated eye screenings into the story.
  2. A Canadian ad agency has produced a door drop designed to appeal to cats. Yes, that is right, the cat of the house. The direct mail piece promoting Bulk Cat Litter Warehouse was covered in concentrated catnip, so that the cat of the house would start fondling the flier as soon as it came through the door.
  3. Wonderbra launched a magazine centrefold cleavage with a toggle to pull the pages closer giving the woman’s breats a ‘lift’ as the pages are pulled together. The campaign was released throughout several magazines and supported by outdoor media billboards across the United Kingdom.
  4. A Japanese newspaper has developed an augmented reality app that changes articles for adults into features for children. The child friendly version features simplified language and cartoon animation on all articles, from politics to social problems.
  5. Kit Kat launched Wi-Fi free zones in Amsterdam to help people ‘have a break’ from updates, emails and other digital noise. The zones block internet access within a five metre radius and encourage people to enjoy a good magazine or book instead.
  6. Microsoft placed a Wi-Fi enabled print advertisement in a special edition of Forbes to promote its Office 365 software, providing free internet to those who kept the magazine with them. Once activated, the router embedded within the pages provided users with 15 days of free internet, which could be used by up to five devices simultaneously.
  7. Johnson & Johnson have produced a print advertisement infused with the scent of baby powder. Designed to appeal to mothers, the full page ad was taken out in a number of Indain newspapers including The Time of India.
