Dates & Deadline Overview

There are two deadlines available to the school.

Custom Page Deadline:

Parent & Students buying and customizing personal pages will ONLY see this deadline.  This is the date their books need to be purchased by, their custom pages completed and their custom pages set to Print Ready.  Purchases made after this date are still allowed, however they may be a shipping fee applied to have it shipped directly to their home if we are unable to include it in the bulk order.  This date is defaulted to a couple of weeks before the All Pages deadline for the following reasons:

1. It allows school to have time to review all the custom pages.

2. It allows you to provide a deadline extension if you want to give your parents/students more time for those that procrastinate to the last minutes (aka: most everyone!)

Chief Editors can change this date to any date they'd like up to and including the All Pages Deadline date.

All Pages Deadline:

Chief & Staff Editors that are working on the core book see this deadline.  This is the final date for core book edits to be made to receive your book by your delivery date.  ALL payments need to be received by this date to be included in the bulk order with free shipping.

If you need more time Chief Editors can extend your own date as much as you need, but do note you delivery date will also extend by the same amount.

Delivery Date:

Latest date when your books will be guaranteed delivered to your door.  4 weeks after All Pages Deadline.  Chief Editors can see all the important dates and deadlines any time from your Dashboard.

 

If you change your All Pages Print Ready deadline your delivery date will be automatically adjust out 4 weeks from your new date.  The delivery date is the latest date your books will arrive.

    But if we pay for expedited shipping it will arrive before 4 weeks?

    Correct Gwen! During your core book print ready process you'll see the options and dates for expedited shipping.

    I cannot get to the book ready page. Can I really extend this out to 10 business days before I need it if I pay for expedited UPS shipping?

    Yes, you can get down to 10 business days with paying for overnight shipping.

    If I have it set that all books are shipped to the home, books do not ship out until we set the book as print ready, but books will arrive to homes no later than the delivery date set in my dashboard?

    Our deadline is April 20....which means any activities from May/June can't be on our personal pages. Is it possible to submit after this date ....I'll pay for shipping. Just would like to incorporate these months in my daughter's book. thanks

    Hi Patricia - Since you have purchased a book before the deadline it will be printed for you and shipped to the school with the bulk shipment. You can cancel this order and wait to purchase a book until after the deadline giving you more time to add special memories to the custom pages. When you are done with the pages you can set them to print ready and purchase the book. Shipping is charged on all after deadline orders.

    I am waiting on one image to upload and place. I am not sure if I have already missed the deadline. Can you tell me what it is and what is my drop dead date for submitting and receiving the book with the rest of the school?

    Hi :) Our school will be purchasing the books in a bulk order. We don't think we are going to meet our current print ready deadline. What will happen if we do the "buy now" method and pay for books and then add more pages after the purchase but before the book is print ready?

    Hi Elisabeth - Once you determine when you will have the book ready to set to print ready you can change the All Pages Print Ready Date in your Dashboard. It is best that you decide on the correct page count before you place your orders. That way the book will reflect the correct price. You just need to have all of your orders placed before you set the book to print ready.

    Don't mean to be a stickler... but Maria asked if the deadline means 11:59 pm, but the answer came back as Midnight local time. So if the deadline is June 1st at midnight, that means the book needs to be set to print ready May 31st no later than 11:59pm. Or did Aaron mean the deadline is midnight the following day so that one would have all day on June 1st to make the yearbook print ready?

    Nevermind... I saw an answer on another post saying that you have until 11:59PM on the date of the deadline. So a June 1st deadline would have until 11:59PM on June 1st.
