- Search receipts in your email.
Q: Are there more yearbooks from the previous years?
Yearbook samples are kept at the front office. The last few copies of 17-18 and 18-19 Jostens yearbooks are available to purchase here. Please forward a copy of your receipt to yearbook advisors at email@example.com . (Note to our alumni: Unfortunately, Jostens is unable to print any historical issues. Nor can they share ePubs.)
Q: How do I upload awesome pictures of my children taken from ROE activities and events?
Through Balfour App on your phone [Apple Store] [Google Play] (Project No. 014718.) Please tag each picture with kids’ name(s), grades, event/activity, and other details. Our helpers only know a handful of kids. These annotations will guide us to place your pictures onto the right page.
We value high-resolution pictures taken through professional cameras. Please upload them at http://images.balfour.com (Project No. 014718, Password not required). Again, please annotate them with details.
The yearbook editors will review all photos and determine final yearbook content. We cannot guarantee that all submissions will be used in the book.
Q: Can I email in my pictures?
No. Pictures are collected through the Balfour App or online program only to be indexed in Balfour image database directly.
Q: Can I have only namestamping with my yearbook? I don’t need any icons.
Yes, please choose “Yearbook Only” and Option “Name Stamp Line 1”.
