Can I create my ad online even if some of the photos I want to use are paper photos instead of digital?
Yes, you can create your ad online and submit the digital photos through the website, then mail the paper photos to Jostens at the address indicated on the order form and shown on the website. Mailed photos should be no larger than 8 x 10.
Should I send in original photos?
Jostens will make every effort to return all photos sent in; however, they don’t recommend sending your only copy of a priceless family photo.
How are the ad prices determined, and what is the money used for?
Ad prices are determined by St. Junipero Serra Catholic School. The revenue from Recognition Ads helps Serra support the yearbook and to keep it affordable for everyone.
How are the ad deadlines determined?
The ad deadlines are set by St. Junipero Serra, based on the production schedule for the yearbook.
What should I say in my ad?
The most effective ads reflect a balance between words and pictures. Ad text can consist of personal messages, inspiring quotations, prayers and/or passages from poetry. Samples of messages used in other ads may be viewed at the Jostens website at JostensAdService.com.
I already created my own ad as an electronic file - do I have to use one of their templates?
No, if you have already created your own file in one of the accepted digital formats, when designing your ad online, select the ‘full page’ template and upload your single image.
Can I send my materials to the school?
No, please do not send your materials to the school. St. Junipero Serra has selected Jostens to assist with our ad program.
