Yearbook Service & Technology

At Friesens, we’re not just printing your yearbooks, we’re helping you design them so they’re a true reflection of your school, students, and faculty. With our Connect Me, BuildIt and DesignIt tools combined with access to industry-standard design software like Adobe Express, the only limit is your imagination! With our Online Classroom, students have access to lots of resources full of tips, ideas, and educational blogs on topics such as content creation, design and layout, photography and more. There’s also Friesens-hosted workshops and seminars throughout the year, both online and in-person. And if you can’t figure something out, our service team is here to guide you along the right path.


ConnectMe is where it all starts. This is your online management portal, and it’s one of the most advanced online yearbook management systems in the industry. In ConnectMe, you can do almost anything! With BuildIt and DesignIt, design pages from scratch or use one of our award-winning design templates. Visit our Online Classroom to learn best practices for photography, writing, yearbook organization, sales and marketing and more. ConnectMe also helps you keep track of your timetable and goals; everything you need is right at your fingertips. You don’t need to worry about security either; your account is locked up tight to protect student content.

Did You Know…?

Letters that are not capitalized are called “lower case” because in the early letterpress printing days, those moveable-type letters were commonly kept in the lower drawers of the type case.
