Article: Fox News 10 - TreeRing Lets Students Customize Yearbooks


MESA - Yearbooks are a great way to look back on school memories, but some kids have very few pictures of themselves in them.

Now, there's a solution -- customized yearbooks.
A Bay-area business called "Tree Ring" allows parents and students to go online, add their own personal photos, and create their own yearbook pages.
Tuesday, that company showed off their stuff at Red Mountain Ranch Elementary in Mesa. Every year, students will get a traditional school yearbook, but they will also be able to print their personalized pages and add them to their yearbook.
"The yearbook traditionally has been about the school during the time that you were there, and there's no reason it can't be about you while you are there," says Aaron Greco, co-founder of Tree Ring yearbooks.
"I think its really cool that I get to put whatever I want in there and pictures of my little brother and my friends so I can remember what I did that year," says student Megan Siblui.
Tree Ring uses digital technology to print each student's custom version.  Watch the video
