Bringing Yearbooks Into the 21st Century

TreeRing creates yearbooks for the Internet generation. The Silicon Valley, CA.-based technology company is providing a new approach to the two hundred plus year old yearbook industry.

TreeRing takes advantage of the latest technology in just-in-time digital printing that allows for efficient, extremely high quality printing of one to one items, and the collaborative power of online social networks to create personalized printed yearbooks that commemorate each child's unique school experience. The process reduces the yearbook creation and financial burden for schools and invests in our planet's future by planting a tree for every yearbook printed.

Making a Difference for Students, Schools, & the Planet

TreeRing's goals are to: (1) create personalized yearbooks that commemorate each child's unique school experience, (2) eliminate the financial cost of yearbooks for schools and (3) invest in our planet's future by planting a tree for every book we print.

Why Did We Name
it TreeRing?

Rings from a mature tree Rings from a
mature tree

TreeRing was inspired by the concentric rings in the cross-section of an ancient redwood tree that signify years of growth. Similarly, TreeRing is attempting to capture the memories, accomplishments, and activities of each student's life so that years from now they'll look back at their TreeRing yearbook and remember all of their great times they had each year.
