Baby Ads/Buddy Pictures
Baby Ads and Buddy Pictures - Seniors Only
Baby ads and buddy pictures are ways to make the book even more special for seniors. Because these are additional pages printed only for those who choose to participate, there is an additional charge. You do not need to purchase a book in order to place an ad or picture.
Baby ads include a favorite picture and written message from family members or loved ones. The messages can be handwritten or typed, but they must fit in the allotted space. If you wish to write the message by hand, be sure to stay within the margins of the box. In the examples to the right, you will see one that looks great and one with a cute baby and great personal message that maybe could've been re-written.
Make messages personal and unique to your graduate! We tend to see a lot of similar messages, and students routinely report that they mean more when they are special to them.
Writing by hand makes it more personal, but typing is neater and might be best for readability. It's entirely up to you, though most typically choose handwritten. For this year's layout, the pictures may be EITHER horizontal or vertical in nature. The space will be approximately 2" x 1.5". Students will crop images if necessary to best fit the space. Space for the messages is the same size as it appears on the form. Please stay inside the margins for best effect.
Sample space for messages is on the order form. Family and/or friends can write the message directly on the form and it will be scanned once payment is submitted. If you would like us to type it, please keep the message under 50 words due to space considerations. Write neatly to avoid mistakes.
Baby ads are $40. Order forms/space for messages.
Submit baby pictures here. IMPORTANT!!!! You MUST label the picture file with the student's name. There's no way for a staff member to match a baby picture to a proper student. The website will also ask you for the name, but the file gets separated from that form later, so it's very important.
Pictures must be submitted online. Both iPhone and Android offer free scanner apps that work well for old photographs if need be.
Buddy pictures are pictures of graduates with each other from through the years, usually from when they were younger. It’s a great opportunity to get a favorite pic of multiple graduates. Seniors and families often chip in with their friends and share the cost to place a picture.
Because there will be more than one person in these photos, there is a small extra step. We need ALL the names of those featured in the picture. Upload as you would senior pics or baby pics at the same location. Then fill out this quick form so we can match the names:
