Submitting Online Yearbook Orders

Submitting Online Yearbook Orders


Did you pre-sell all of your yearbooks via the online Storefront? If so, please follow the steps below to complete your yearbook order.

 

Before you release your yearbook to production please make sure you have locked all pages. This will cause a proof to be generated and emailed to you for review.

  1. From Creator Studio’s home screen, navigate to the "Sell" tab. Under each store listed are the books for sale in that store. Find the book you want to submit to production and click “Manage Sales” next to its name.


  2. On the bottom right, click “Confirm you have approved the proof…” This will not appear if you have not yet locked all your pages.

If you have not already done so, check your email to and review your digital proof. Once you are satisfied with the proof, click the checkbox indicating that you have reviewed and approved the yearbook for printing.

Click “Continue”
 

  1. Click the “Submit to Production” button to release your order into print production. 

Note: If you haven’t placed a pre-order for your personal copy, do so prior to this step.

Note: If you are submitting to production prior to the order deadline you set for your store, you will receive a warning. This is the date shown to customers to have their orders completed by. If you submit to production too early, then these customers may miss their chance to order.  Same is true if you have offered personalized pages. Customers with personalized pages have until the order deadline to complete and finalize their pages. 
 

  1. Review your order for accuracy and upgrade shipping (if applicable) by clicking the blue "Change" link


 
  1. If you have earned a profit from your online sales, you’ll be asked what you want to do with this profit. Indicate if you want a Voucher Code, a check sent to the financial contact, or if you want to donate your profit to the Yearbooks for Everyone Fund.

If you owe payment for your order, you will be asked if you want to pay online or have an invoice sent to the financial contact. If you choose to pay online, you’ll submit payment on the last step before submitting your order.
