As a parent, it is a rare opportunity that you can express to your child the extent of your love, pride and joy. The next best thing is a yearbook Recognition Ad where you can write a personal message and include a special photograph. You will need to get online to create your Recognition Ad. Please follow the steps below....


Step 1 - Go to and type in “Fort Zumwalt West Middle” (make sure it does not accidentally grab “high school”)

Step 2 - Click on “Yearbook”

Step 3 - Click on “Yearbook Ads” on the left side of page

Step 4 - Click on the image that has 1/8 Page Recognition Ad – Create online $25.00

Step 5 - Click on “Please log in to build an ad”

Step 6 - Click on “Create an account” and create an account

Step 7 - Click on the blue banner at the top that has Fort Zumwalt West Middle School on it

Step 8 - Repeat Step 2 through Step 4

Step 9 - Under Build New Ad, type your child’s first and last name and then click ”Create New Ad”

Step 10 - Then, follow the instructions and load your photo etc. Images should be at least 300 DPI at full size and less                    than 8 MB per image



§  Images should be at least 300 DPI at full size and less than 8 MB per image. Images in JPG/JPEG or PNG

formats are suitable for use. Cell phone images are typically too small to reproduce in print.


§  After you upload your image to your gallery, you can drag and drop it to the desired frame.


§  After placing the image, click on the photo to bring up the editing tools. The buttons allow you to adjust a photo’s position, zoom in or out, and add a border.


§  If an image becomes too small, you will see a YELLOW warning that the image may look grainy when it

prints. If you see a RED warning, your picture cannot be used because it does not meet the print


§  When adding text, you can edit the style of text from the Text Tools box.

§  Make sure you click “Save Ad” when you are finished.

§  Click “Add to Cart” in order for your Recognition Ad to be place in the yearbook.
