Purchasing a Yearbook
Yearbooks can only be purchased through our publisher’s website: www.balfour.com. Yearbooks do increase in price as the year continues, so order early for the best price. For the past four years, we have sold out of yearbooks by the end of the year; we cannot guarantee yearbooks will still be available at yearbook distribution during Spring Fling, so we recommend ordering early. Yearbook Pricing: Yearbooks are $80 from June 1 - November 30. Yearbooks are $85 from December 1 - May 12. If additional books are available after that time, they will be for sale at Spring Fling yearbook distribution for $85 cash or check on a first come, first served basis. If you have questions regarding a yearbook purchase, feel free to email the yearbook staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us at 763-389-7252.
It's already time to start thinking about senior photos! Unlike in underclassmen years where students had their yearbook photo taken only by the school photographer, seniors have the option of submitting a senior photo. If you are not planning to have senior pictures taken or will not have them taken before the deadline (more information below), seniors do have the option of using their Jostens photo as their senior photo submission. The photos taken by the school photographer will be automatically submitted to the yearbook staff. If we do not receive a senior photo submission by the deadline, we will use the student’s Jostens photo, if available. If your student is having his/her senior photos taken by a photographer, confirm with your photographer whether he/she will be submitting that photo for you. Recommended DPI is 600 if your photographer asks.
The senior photo requirements have stayed the same as previous years. We are discouraging black and white photos for aesthetic purposes as the book is printed in full color. The photo layouts are vertical. Props, as well as pets or other individuals, are not allowed in photos. Vertical headshots (shoulders and up) are required. Full body shots are not accepted. Princeton High School Yearbook staff has the right to not include photos that do not meet this criterion.
Senior salutes are also being accepted. A senior salute includes a baby photo and a note from a loved one to your senior. Each salute is $30 and can be purchased and designed online (www.balfour.com); it might be labeled as ⅛ page advertisement on their website. You are able to purchase multiple salutes if desired. Salutes will be printed exactly as you design them on the website. Be sure what you submit is what you want to print; the yearbook staff is not able to alter or edit these submissions. The yearbook staff reserves the right to decline ads that do not meet school guidelines. If you have questions when designing your senior salute, contact Balfour customer support at 1-800-225-3687. Please note that, after purchasing your senior salute, it may take up to 24 hours for Balfour to send you an email with a link to edit/design your salute.
The deadline for both senior photos and senior salutes is Wednesday, November 23, 2022. We will not be able to include photos or salutes submitted after that time. Senior salutes can only be purchased and designed online at www.balfour.com. Senior photos can be emailed to email@example.com.
Have Photos to Submit?
If you have photographs from sports or extracurricular activities, feel free to email them to us! While we cannot guarantee they will be used in the yearbook, we welcome all photo submissions. Email all photo submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Alumni: Looking for Old Yearbooks?
We do have yearbooks from previous years available for purchase. These are high-school level books only. We do NOT have access to old middle school books. Email the yearbook staff at email@example.com for pricing and availability.
