What’s in a Senior Ad?
Parents may choose to congratulate their graduating senior with a half page ad in the yearbook. We have four pre-designed templates that include a variety of photo options to go with your words of congratulations. There is also an option to design your own half page ad.
You may submit digital or paper images of your graduating student. Please make sure that all digital images are in the highest resolution available. Print publications, such as yearbook, require high resolution images.
Write out any text that you wish to include in the ad. You may write less than the character count that applies to your ad template, but not more. If there is no space for more text on the template you choose, we cannot include it in the ad. Note: Character count includes letters, punctuation, and spacing - not word count.
Template 1: 500 characters
Template 2: 450 characters
Template 3: 450 characters
Template 4: 800 characters
* Template examples are below.
Creating the Ad Yourself
If you are designing your own ad, the allotted space is 8 1/6 inches wide by 5 inches high. (Pica Dimensions: 49p wide by 30p high, Points or Pixel Dimensions: 588 by 360).
We can accept any Adobe format, but we will not be able to use documents created on Pages or PDF documents. You must include your child’s name in the ad. Please email the completed ad to us at email@example.com.
How do I submit the ad?
If you are submitting digital images or a self-designed ad...
What about using physical photos?
Place all items in a 9x12 manila envelope with your student’s first and last name and ID number written legibly on the front and deliver to CCA’s reception desk to the attention of Yearbook: Travasos. Students may deliver to the Yearbook room (F206).
Be sure to include all photos and a typed note with any text that you wish to be included in the message of the ad. On the back of each photo, write your student’s first and last name and indicate which box you would like it to go in for your chosen template. (Ex: If you would like a picture to go in box 4, write “John Smith – Picture 4” on the back.)
PLEASE NOTE: Submitting pictures and text electronically is easier for our student designers and also keeps your precious memories secure in your own home. If you do submit physical photos, it is you and your child’s responsibility to pick up your photos after spring break as they will not be returned otherwise. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
More Frequently Asked Questions
How many pictures should I put in the ad?
You need to include as many pictures as the template you select requires. If you give us more
pictures than the template contains, we will have to use our best judgment to decide which
picture(s) not to include.
If I am designing my own ad, how many pictures can I include?
It is up to you how many pictures you would like to use. However, beware that the ad may end
up looking messy or the photos may be too small to see if there are too many. More pictures =
Do I need to reduce or enlarge the pictures I am giving you?
No, you do not need to adjust the size. Our senior ads editors will take care of that for you. Please be sure to submit HIGH QUALITY images. Pictures downloaded from Facebook or any social media websites may not be used if the quality is poor. If you send from a smartphone, be sure to send the highest resolution possible.
Can I use black and white pictures?
All senior ads are printed in color. If you would like to include black and white pictures in the
ad, you must change them to black and white yourself before sending us the pictures.
Can I use a piece of artwork in my ad?
Due to copyright laws, only original artwork can be reprinted. If you use a copyrighted image,
(such as a Nike symbol, famous artwork, Mickey Mouse, etc.) we will not be able to print it.
If I submit physical pictures, when will my pictures be returned?
Students can come to the yearbook room F206 any time after Spring Break to pick up their
pictures. If photos are not picked up by the end of the year, they will be discarded.
Can I see a proof of my ad?
Yes, we will provide a digital proof by email. Please check carefully for incorrect spelling or editing in your ad. You will then reply via email with your approval.
After I submit my ad, can I substitute a picture at a later date?
Changes may be made to your ad before the final deadline (December 21st).
Can I purchase an ad for a group of people?
You may purchase an ad for groups of people, like friends, sports teams, etc.. We
will bill only one person, so the group must organize financial arrangements independently. When purchasing a group ad, please specify the order in which you wish the names to appear on the heading, which can be done on the ORDERING INFORMATION page. We will only use names, not special sayings (ex: “Friends Forever”, “JD, PK, RG”, etc.). The heading will only list the full names given to us. Senior ads for sports teams (ex: Women’s Varsity Volleyball, Track and Field) will be titled by sport in alphabetical order. Please note that all group ads will be placed after individual ads in this section.
Can I purchase an ad for siblings?
One ad can be purchased for twins/siblings graduating in the same class. All names of the
siblings will appear on the ad.
What name should I put on my child’s ad?
Your child’s first and last name must be included on the ad, regardless of whether you use a
nickname or a shortened name. You may include a middle name, but it is optional. It is your
decision if you want to use the legal or a shortened nickname that your child goes by (ex:
Theodore Brown vs. Ted Brown – either is acceptable). All Senior ads will automatically
include the student’s name at the top of their ad on the page, unless you are creating your own ad, in which case you must include your child’s name.
What form of payments do you accept?
The CCA Finance Office accepts personal checks, credit cards, and cash. Checks should be made out to CCA ASB. Credit card payments must be made through the ASB Webstore. Cash and check payments must be turned in to the CCA Finance Office by October 10th.
