Yearbook Distribution Day

YBK Day

Make it the best day of the year

After all of the work you’ve put into making your yearbook amazing, it’s rewarding for your staff — and for the entire school community — to make distribution day special. YBK Day takes many different forms based on the school and when the book is distributed. Start planning early to make the day go off without a hitch.

“Last year’s yearbook distribution was the largest attended event on campus. We made sure to get every club and organization involved. It really became a thing that everyone talked about for weeks. We’re turning 100 this year so we are planning something bigger, better. Just wait!”

Dr. Melissa Tingle
Piedmont College Yearbook Adviser

“I wanted to bring back the excitement of receiving the yearbook in a fun atmosphere. This event has also increased our sales tremendously. This past year we had a waiting list of over 60 people trying to purchase a book. I have had students come to me after the party asking if we had more copies for sale because they wanted to see themselves.”
