HIGH-SCHOOLERS CAN PERSONALIZE YEARBOOKS WITH FACEBOOK PICTURES
By Leah Gonzalez
Yearbooks are a long-time tradition, but they can be quite costly for schools. Startup company TreeRing helps schools cut down on those costs by providing personalized yearbooks that are printed on demand for students.
TreeRing lets schools save money by requiring no minimum orders and no financial commitment from schools. Parents or students purchase the yearbook directly from TreeRing and TreeRing will only print what is purchased so there are no leftover yearbooks.
Parents and students over 13 can also personalize their own yearbook pages. Students can choose their own photos for their pages and even ask friends to create custom messages for them online. Their custom pages will only appear on their yearbook.
TreeRing’s web-based yearbook builder is easy to use and lets users save their pages to the cloud so schools and students don’t have to worry about back-ups. The software also allows online sharing of photos to make it easy for anyone to submit a photo for the yearbook.
TreeRing prints its yearbooks on recycled paper and also plants a tree for every yearbook printed. The company currently serves about 2,000 schools from all over the country and estimates to produce about 200,000 yearbooks this year. READ MORE
