Make a copy, create your November plan with your staff and send us yours at ybk@herffjones.com. Be sure to check out the Ideas and Activities tab.

Don’t miss this (sneak peek, photography, student event) in your (school name) yearbook!

A friendly reminder to keep all posts and sounds school appropriate. Check with your adviser if you have any questions on your content!

FIND THAT TAPE!

OCT. 24-28

Grab your sales posters and flyers from your marketing kit or make your own! Post them all over your school. Let’s see your creativity. Where are your high-traffic areas? What about bathroom stalls? Hallway bulletin boards? Your main office? The front door of your school? Don’t forget yard signs and banners on fences! Show us where you have them placed by sending us yours at ybk@herffjones.com

You can find great products and restock your supply on our Shop page. And, who also doesn’t love a good staff t-shirt to help promote as well?!

GAME ON! SELL THOSE BOOKS.

AND YOU WERE GOING TO DO IT ANYWAY, RIGHT?! We are so excited to see your entries (and to see your book sales fly)! Sign up today for the Book Sales Blitz and change the way you sell this year.
