Interested in a Yearbook Ad?

Deadline to purchase a 2017 yearbook ad is December, 30th, 2016.  However, late purchases will be accepted until January 16th so long as space is available.

Ad space is limited and is available on a first come first served basis.  No ads will be sold after all available space is used regardless of the date.

Ads are being sold online at www.Balfour.com.  You may purchase and design your ad by using their site.  No ads will be accepted at OMMS.  Only online sales will be accepted this year.

Personal and commercial ads are being accepted.

**Note**
We have the right to refuse ads or ask for ad revisions due to content deemed inappropriate for a school setting.

Ad sizes and prices:

  • Business card size = $35.00
  • 1/4 Page = $90.00

Suggestion – If you do not see a layout that suits your needs you may design your ad using a program like Photoshop, Power Point, Publisher, or similar program.  Once finished with the design save it and then also save it as a .jpeg or .tiff file for uploading into the ad space.

Here are the Ad Builder instructions.

Yearbook Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:  Since yearbooks were not sold at registration how do I buy a book?
A:  Yearbooks are being sold online at www.Balfour.com The deadline to reserve a yearbook for $38.00 is November 30th, 2016.  

After that date (Nov. 30th) the price will increase to $40.00 and books will continue to be sold until the final deadline of December 30th. 

After December 30th, 2016 yearbooks will no longer be sold at www.Balfour.com.  

**Note**
It is possible to make partial yearbook payments online if that will help you budget for a yearbook purchase.

If an online yearbook purchase is not an option checks may be sent to the office to the attention of Mrs. Graham.  Be sure the student’s name is on the check and/or envelope.  

Q:  I did not reserve a yearbook at all.  Will I still be able to buy one in May?
A:  There might be a limited number of yearbooks available for purchase in May.  They will be sold on a first come first served basis.  It is possible we will sell our allotment before May and not have extra books to sell.  The cost will be $40.00 if books are available.

Q:  I am not called by my first name.  Can I have my name changed in the yearbook?
A:  If your parents send in a request to have your name listed as something other than your first name we will try to honor the request.  However, we make no guarantees as to the change.

Q:  When will we receive our yearbooks?
A:  Yearbooks will be given out in May just before school is out for summer.
