Interested in a Yearbook Ad?
The original 12/31/17 ad deadline has been extended to January 15th unless all ad space has been sold before then. It might take 24 hours for the change to appear on the Balfour site, so you may need to check back in a few hours if it is not yet working.
Deadline to purchase a yearbook ad (personal or commercial) for the 2018 yearbook WAS December, 31st, 2017. New date is 1/15/2018 - unless all ad space is sold before that date.
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.
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
- 1/2 Page = $130.00
- Full Page = $220.00
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.
If you have questions about ad purchases you may contact Jane Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yearbook Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Yearbooks were sold at registration this summer, but I did not buy one. How can I buy a yearbook?
A: There are three options for buying a book.
- Yearbooks are being sold online at www.Balfour.com The deadline to buy a yearbook is January 12th, 2018. After January 12th, 2018 yearbooks will no longer be sold at www.Balfour.com. You will need to contact J. Graham to see if books are still available.

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.
