Buying a Senior Ad

Here in the CHS yearbook room we love celebrating seniors!

What Are Senior Ads?

Senior ads (the last 60 pages or so of the yearbook) are a great way to celebrate all the hard work your student has put into the last 13 years of school and congratulate them on a job well done.

Due Date and Cost

Ads are currently on sale until Nov. 15 and prices start as low as $45.  All ads have space for pictures and dedications.

If you complete, pay for, and submit your ad by Oct. 31 you can save $5-$20 (savings based on ad size).

Current Prices-

1/8 page- $45

1/4 page- $90

1/2 page- $185

Full page- $280

How Do I Make My Ad?

All ads must be created online through our ad creation site.  You can access the site here.

You will need to enter our school access code which is 16404.  Once you confirm that you are accessing Carlsbad High School’s site, you will reach the sale page.

Follow the link that says Buy a Yearbook Ad and follow the steps to start creating your ad. Underneath the buy your ad link is a video tutorial link and here are additional detailed directions to help you out.  

I Need Some Help- This Thing is Tricky

If you need help creating your ad, we will have a parent ad workshop in room 3104 on Saturday, Oct. 14 from 11-4.

Please bring your pictures, your dedication, and your credit/debit card and we will help you through the process.  It is easiest if you bring your pictures in a digital format (digital pictures or scanned photos) but we can also help you scan your photos.


Can you save me a space? Unfortunately, due to restrictions from the plant, we can’t save spots in the yearbook for ads. We can only guarantee you an ad spot in the yearbook if you complete, pay for, and submit your ad digitally by Nov. 15. Additionally, you cannot pay for your ad before it is complete.  All ads must be completed by Nov. 15.

What if I missed the deadline? After Nov. 15, we will sell ads on a first come-first served basis IF any space is still available as we cannot change our page count with the printer after Nov. 15. We cannot guarantee there will be any ad space available to purchase after Nov. 15.

Can I design my own layout? Yes, you can!  Design your page on your choice or programs and save it as a jpeg.  Then follow the directions to create your ad and upload your own design as a photo.  Select the layout in your selected size that looks like one big photo box and drop your design into the box.  Please email if you need the dimensions.
