Designing Your Own Ad
Senior ads measure:
- half page 8.17"x 5.25"
- full page 8.17" x 11
To submit your own design, save file as JPEG, TIFF or PNG format, select the single image layout in the Jostens online editor and upload your image to fit.
How do I zoom/crop/reposition my photo once it’s placed in a photo box?
Once a photo has been placed in a photo box, you may zoom and crop a photo by using the magnifying glass icon found on the photo control bar (located directly above your placed photo). You can also reposition a photo within a photo box by clicking and dragging the placed photo to your new desired position
How do I remove an image from my layout?
You can remove a photo from your layout by selecting the photo and clicking on the button marked 'X' found on the photo control bar (located directly above your placed photo).
I got an error message saying I had exceeded the text limit of the text box. What should I do?
The Ad Designer reduces the font size as you type to allow the maximum amount of text to fit in the allotted area. If you get a text limit message, you must use the delete or backspace key to delete some text since the font size has already been reduced as much as possible.
Can I change my ad size and/or layout without losing my photos and text?
Yes. If you choose a different size and layout during your design session, your text and photos will fit into the new selected layout without losing your work.
After I submit and pay for my ad, can I go back and make edits?
No. You are not able to make additional edits once you have paid and submitted your ad. Please proof your work carefully before purchasing your ad.
