ANSWERS! ANSWERS! ANSWERS!

1)  Do I have to have my Senior Portrait taken at Lifetouch Studios?

Yes. Lifetouch is our official school photographer and your yearbook proof must come from them. You do not need to travel to Melrose if you have your portrait done over the Summer or in the early Autumn when they visit WHS. Lifetouch has many options for Senior Portraits--the sitting fee is $50.00. Your Senior yearbook photo must have a neutral or natural background. If you are unhappy with your photos for any reason, you are not obligated to pay for any additional prints.  Please call (781) 662-9448 if you have questions about your appointment or sitting options.

2.) It's the last week in January and I forgot to order my Senior Yearbook, is it too late?

Although you did miss the order deadline, we order a book for all members of the Senior class.

3.) I want to buy a Senior Family Ad, what do I need to do?

All you need to do is visit a local photo center and create the image(s) and text you want in the publication.  Some individuals elect to use a photo layout applications they are familiar with, such as those made available at photo centers for the purpose of creating Holiday Photo Greetings or photo collages. Payment should be made through the WPS payment site.  Once payment is submitted, simply email your photo-ready materials to vinae@wellesleyps.org and the Yearbook staff will create your child's ad space.  

4.) How much does the yearbook cost and when is the order deadline?

No book orders are accepted after 1/31/17 however, we usually have books available for purchase once the books are delivered in June. 

5.) When is the deadline for 2016 Senior Ads?

All ad orders and materials are due BEFORE 12/06/16 

 Cost for Family Ads are:

              1/4 page $65.00

              1/2 page $125.00

              Full Page $250.00

The YB staff can accept most types of document formats (.doc, .ppt, .pdf. .jpg) however the images that have the best print outcomes are usually those saved in .jpg format with 300+ dpi.  Black and white, sepia or full-color photos work equally well for ads.  Please be selective about the images you wish to include in your ad (special childhood images are recommended).  Images that are deemed inappropriate for a community publication will not be included in the yearbook.  In other words, we ask that you save any questionable images for your personal Facebook page or family album.

If we receive an attachment that we can not open or read, we will email you and request the materials be sent in a different format.

6) The ad order deadline has passed...will I still be able to place a senior ad?

While we are able to accept ads past the deadline, we can not guarantee space for your ad. We reserve a certain amount of pages for family ads, and once those pages are filled, we will no longer accept ad submissions.    

7.) I am not happy with my child's portrait. Does it have to be in the yearbook?

No, it is your choice whether or not to allow your child's portrait in the book. If you wish to remove the image, please email vinae@wellesleyps.org and the image will be replaced with a thematic icon for this year's edition.

8.) When if I forgot to pick up my yearbook?

All remaining books are left in the WHS main office in June.
