Frank, I agree.

The Yearbook market will change. It is still tied to long-standing agreements and content (they capture photos) and create content. I believe you have to help the students, staff or other volunteers on capture and creation. Regardless, it will be increasingly printed digitally. The ability to create your version of the book will make it even more attractive.

Frank, I agree as well.

In fact I even have proof . . . I graduated from RIT in '08 but before I left I worked 2 years on a project called 'Timleine.' It was RIT's revival of a yearbook. We captured events throughout the entire year and then put the book up online for students to order. Orders were sent to a local digital print shop and printed On-demand using iGen Technology.

Frank. Did you see the TV clip about the London riots and the commentator noted that the only shop not looted in one particular block, was the bookstore. I guess books weren't on their shopping (looting) lists.
