How to Create Your Senior Ad
STEP 1: Judging by the number and shape of the photos you select, choose one of our ten
pre-made layouts or choose to make the whole ad on your own.
If you are designing your own ad, the ad space is 8 1/6 inches wide by 5 inches high or any
ratio of that. (Pica Dimensions: 49p0 wide by 30p high, Points or Pixels: 588 by 360). Please
make sure to use these dimensions.
STEP 2: Decide if you are going to submit digital or paper images. Please make sure that all
digital images are in the highest resolution available. Print publications, such as yearbook,
require high resolution images.
Do NOT download photos from social media as they are very low resolution and we will NOT
STEP 3: 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, but NOT more. If there is no space for text on the
template you choose, we cannot include it in the ad.
Note: Character count includes letters, punctuation, and spacing, not individual words.

Creating the Ad Yourself:
1. Please email the completed ad to us at email@example.com. We can accept any Adobe format, but we will not be able to use documents created on Pages or PDF documents so please do not send them. You MUST include your child’s name in the ad, we will not do it for you.
How do I Submit the Ad?

number written legibly on the front. You have three options on how you would like to deliver it to us:
PLEASE NOTE: Submitting pictures and text electronically makes things run more efficiently
and you will not have to pick anything up when the ads are finished. It is you and your child’s
responsibility to pick up your photos after spring break if you dropped them off. We
recommend you use one of our templates, but you are welcome to create your own as well. If
you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com
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 that the template contains, we will have to use our best judgment to decide which
picture 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. Our senior ads editors will take care of that for you. Please be sure to
submit HIGH QUALITY images. No pictured downloaded from Facebook or any social media
websites will be used. If you send from a smartphone, be sure to send the highest resolution
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 can provide digital proofs for an additional $10. If you would like to see a proof before
the ad is in the yearbook, you may purchase a proof on the ORDERING INFORMATION page and
we will email the proof to you.
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 (November 24th). After that
deadline, changes can only be made if you purchased a proof of your ad.
I’m still waiting for senior pictures to come in. What do I do?
You can contact the photographer and ask them for a proof copy that you can submit for senior
ads. If you really would like the senior picture in the ad, but it won’t be available until after the
submission deadline, you can purchase a proof for your ad ($10) and submit a placeholder
photo to us by the first deadline. Then, once you get your senior pictures, you can send it to us
and we will replace the placeholder photo.
Can I purchase an ad for a group of people?
Yes. You may purchase an ad for groups of people (ex: groups of friends, sports teams, etc.). We
will bill only one person, so the group must organize finances accordingly. 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 not make headings with
special sayings (ex: “Friend’s Forever”, “JD, PK, RG”, etc.). The heading will only list full names
given to us. Senior ads for sports teams (ex: Girl’s Varsity Volleyball, Track and Field) will be
titled by sport in alphabetical order.
Can I purchase an ad for siblings?
Yes. 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 – both are acceptable). Whether you are only submitting
pictures to be put in a template or making your ad completely on your own, you do not need to
include your child’s name in large letters anywhere on the ad. 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, then you MUST include your child’s name.
What form of payments do you accept?
We accept personal checks, cards, and cash. Checks should be made out to CCA ASB. Credit
card payments must be made through the ASB Webstore. If writing a check, please write your
student’s first and last name and school ID number on the memo line to help us credit your
account properly. Cash and check payments must be turned into the CCA Finance Office
