    I want to order my student a yearbook. How do I? 

     Orders for the 2023 Yearbook begin July 1, 2022
    Go to the HerffJones yearbook order center at

    Click on the "Buy a Yearbook" button and use our Order Number #16449 to order a yearbook directly from our publishing company. 
    *The yearbook sells out almost every year. We suggest you order one in quarter 1 to guarantee your student receives one. In 2021, we sold out quickly. In March 2022, we sold out even faster. Several people did not get books because they didn't preorder. Please do not let that happen to you.

    Yearbooks are sold out. Can you just order some more? 

    I cannot buy more books than are printed. This is not a print on demand. We sell books from July 1 until we are sold out. We send multiple emails from school & from the publisher to remind families. I'm sorry, you did not preorder. There aren't any more.

    What if I pay extra? Can I get just one more book, even if they're sold out?

    To run a reprint of the yearbook, the book is $400 each for a minimum of 20 books & if there were a second run every single book would need to be prepaid in full.

    I didn't order prints for my student, may I do that still?

    Yep. Call (480) 830-5667 to order.

    There is an error in the book. This could be misidentified photo, misspelling, or inaccurate information. I just noticed it in the yearbook. What can I do about it?

    I'm sorry. This is a student run publication. Our yearbook staff builds the entire book by themselves. There will be errors. I suggest your student sign up for yearbook next year and come help us make the book even better!

    How much is the book? 

    The price changes through the year. There is an orietnation pricing early in the year. During first quarter books are $30 ,second quarter $40, third quarter until books sell out $45. Books do sell quickly so please be sure to order soon!

    Why are these books so expensive? Last year it was XXXX and when I was in middle school it was XXXX cheaper.

    I hear you there! I don't disagree, but print a high quality book costs money. We are a full color book (black and white is cheaper and maybe what you remember). There was a high demand for books last year and due to cost of supplies we needed to raise the price. We do not make a profit on this book. We pretty much break even each year from our starting price. 

    If your question is not here, please let me know. This is a living document.
