Submissions for Baby Advertisements in the 2022 Clarion Yearbook are now closed. If you have any questions please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hello, parents of Messiah’s class of 2022! To commemorate your senior’s graduation from Messiah University, The Pulse would like to offer you the opportunity to congratulate your child by advertising in the 2022 Clarion Yearbook. Each year, the Clarion reserves a section of the yearbook for you to publish words of blessing and encouragement for your graduate, as well as any favorite baby photos. Yearbooks are free for each graduating senior, so this is a great opportunity to let your graduate know how proud you are of them! If you would like to purchase an ad, you can complete this process on Balfour.com.
How to purchase and submit a Baby Ad:
- Visit Balfour.com, and search for Messiah University or click here to be taken to Messiah University’s page directly.
- Shop ‘Yearbook Products and Ads’ and purchase the ad size you want.
- Create an account on Balfour.com
- Look for an email within 1 business day confirming your Ad Space is available.
- Log into your Balfour.com account and look under MY ORDERS to upload your images and message.
- When you’re ready, choose ‘Submit your Ad’ to share the content with the yearbook staff
There are three necessary things we will need in order for you to reserve an ad:
- Your photo(s) – We ask that you upload no more than three photos. If you scan the photos, we prefer that they are in JPEG format at a high resolution – 300 dpi is preferred. We strongly suggest you have your photos scanned at a professional photo center such as CVS or Wal-Mart, or on a high-quality home printer scanner, and uploaded to Balfour.com.
- Your preferred message – the length of these messages averages about 60-70 words for the quarter-page ads, but the length is flexible and can obviously be longer for half or full-page ads, or could be short and sweet! An encouraging Bible verse is always a good choice.
- Payment – Pricing for the ads begins at $35.00 for a quarter page, $65.00 for a half-page, and $120.00 for a full page. You can purchase the ads through Balfour.com.
The final deadline for submitting baby ads will be February 28, 2022.
