Senior Ads - Your Chance to Send a Lasting Message To Your Senior


As per tradition, a number of pages in the reference section of the DVHS yearbook are dedicated to senior ads. This year is no different. There are three different sized ads you can purchase:

Ads are sold via the DVHS webstore which can be reached from a link off of the "DVHS Homepage." You can go directly to the webstore at "DVHS Webstore." Or you can link directly to the senior yearbook ads page on the webstore by clicking "Senior Yearbook Ads."


IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING AD PRIORITY:

Early in the school year the yearbook printing company requires the DVHS yearbook staff commit to a set number of pages allocated for senior ads. Once those pages are filled, any senior ads not completed (all photos, text, and layout information provided to the yearbook staff as per the instructions) will not be able to be included in the yearbook. In such cases, the yearbook staff will return the money paid for the ads. To be clear, priority for being included in the yearbook is in the order of completion of ads, not when they were purchased. There is plenty of room allocated, but it is wise to get ads completed as soon as possible.

    ALL AD CONTENT MUST BE SUBMITTED PRIOR TO SUNDAY MARCH 1, BUT DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE AS THAT LEAVES LITTLE TIME FOR CREATING THE AD AND LITTLE OR NO TIME FOR EDITING/REVISING THE AD. ANYONE SUBMITTING PHOTOS AND TEXT COPY AFTER FEBRUARY 15 MAY NOT BE ABLE TO REQUEST REVISIONS TO YOUR AD DESIGN.


INSTRUCTIONS FOR AD CREATION - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

The preferred way to create an ad is by following these steps:

  1. Order an ad in the size of your choice from the "DVHS webstore."
  2. Get an idea of how many photos and how much text will fit within an ad of the size you have chosen by viewing ad layouts from this website or take a look at last year's yearbook. This year's ads will be created in a different style consistent with the theme and styles in this year's yearbook as shown on the sample ad layout pages located at 1/8 page ads, 1/4 page ads, and 1/2 page ads.
  3. Write the text for your ad and assemble the correct number of images for the ad size you have purchased.
  4. Once you have completed steps 1-3, you are ready to proceed to the short Google form which will prompt you for all the pertinent information about your ad. You will need to be prepared with all the following:
    • your text copy for the ad (after carefully proofreading it) as you wish it to be published (in its final form)
    • the ad size
    • the number of photos you wish to appear in your ad
    • your name, phone number, and email address to use so we can email you a proof prior to publishing.
    • Now you are ready to go to the Google form at: http://goo.gl/forms/7Fa8uzUi87.
  5. The last thing you will need to do is submit your electronic images. You will want to make copies of each of the original image files and then rename the copies in order of importance. If possible, please name them in order using the file naming format: fullstudentname-1 (keeping the original file name extension such as fullstudentname-1.jpg). The numbers at the end of each of the file names you submit should be in the order of importance with 1 being the most important. Your images files should be high resolution jpg files if possible. Once you have prepared your files, you are ready to submit them electronically by going to: http://www.hjeshare.com - and enter the Dougherty Valley High school ID# 12540.
  6. Watch your email (it may take a couple of weeks) for a proof of your ad, and reply to us as soon as possible with confirmation of your acceptance, or let us know if there is anything you'd like altered. ONCE YOU SEND YOUR ACCEPTANCE AND THE YEARBOOK STAFF SUBMITS THE AD TO THE PRINTING COMPANY, IT CAN NO LONGER BE EDITED, SO BE CERTAIN EVERYTHING IS HOW YOU WANT IT TO BE PRIOR TO ISSUING YOUR ACCPTANCE EMAIL.


HELPFUL POINTERS!
