Developing unique layouts for every page is a daunting task, but Entourage has a wealth of templates to ease the load. Browse through categories like Sports, Artistic, Tropical Madness, and more to find the perfect template to make every page pop.
This probably isn’t news to most yearbook advisors and coordinators, but using software like InDesign or Acrobat is critical to creating a professional quality yearbook. If you aren’t familiar with the advanced and often complex options these programs offer, don’t fear! Entourage Yearbooks has developed EDOnline, a software specifically designed for yearbook creation. EDOnline automatically integrates with all Entourage templates and comes with a huge bank of fonts, layouts, and tools to help you get stuff done. Additionally, EDOnline is a totally web-based software that you can use from almost any device! You can even share your progress with others and grab photos with EDOnline’s social media integration. Whether you use EDOnline or another design software, make sure to experiment and play around with the tools available. You never know where the next great idea will come from!
Above all else, creating a yearbook is about saving treasured memories and giving students and family a time capsule they can use to look back on their fondest days of school. So have fun! The memories of making it can be just as wonderful as the memories it stores.
