Schools have had long relationships with school yearbook companies. No surprising since up until now all yearbooks have been created by yearbook companies that produce traditional, paper yearbooks. Theirs is a complex relationship where schools are required to not just involve themselves financially and contractually with the school yearbook companies but in the actual process of creation, production, distribution and even storage.
So, the onus on the school is considerable. This takes away from the time that they could be spending in doing what they do best, which is to educate their students.
The traditional school yearbook companies come with their own set of issues. Not only are their yearbooks difficult to produce and distribute, they are difficult to store. Plus they cost a considerable amount for both the school—which has to deal with unsold inventory—and the parents, who have to sometimes pay for more than one child per year.
And then there is the issue of all that paper used to produce these heavy school yearbooks. Every year, school yearbook companies kill trees by printing yearbooks, thus making them unfriendly to the environment. Besides all this, after a few years, the pictures may fade, dulling not just the photos but the memories.
