Monarch by Jostens
The latest, best-in-class yearbook software utilizing
Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Bridge
Adobe. Anywhere. Anytime.
Professional Power All From Your Browser
WORK FROM ANYWHERE
Monarch provides full-feature access to Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Bridge in one simple solution from any computer with a broadband connection at any time of day.
Since everything is in the cloud, schools don’t have to worry about installation or purchasing costly upgrades. Monarch is backed up nightly and every file on the Team drive is accessible for seven days, even if accidentally deleted or overwritten.
Monarch is secure and logins are trackable. Users login via Yearbook Avenue with a username and password controlled by the adviser. Logins can be easily removed.
EASY PORTRAIT EDITOR
Monarch makes it easy to import a student text file to ensure all names are present and to help identify missing portraits. You can even choose to skip “No Photo Available” portraits and place all “not pictured” names automatically at the end of the grade.
Use Caption Perfect to identify people in group photos. The portrait image pops up when you hover over a name to ensure the correct name is used. Plus, you’ll never have a misspelled name: Katelyn or Caitlyn? Never guess again.
Peace of Mind
When you run Prepare for Submission to submit a spread, PFS checks for over 400 potentially offensive words that may be included in the text on a spread. Never have an oops! in your book again.
Fast & Easy Uploads
Upload photos directly from Google Drive™ into your Jostens creation platform.
Monarch is educator friendly.
It’s becoming harder and harder for educators to maintain Adobe InDesign in their classroom. Using Monarch has eliminated all those worries.

I love Monarch!
There are just so many benefits to using Monarch with the yearbook, and adding my newspaper staff to the mix grows the value of the program exponentially.
— Nora Neff, Adviser
Mill Creek High School [GA]
Monarch is an amazing, positive experience.
While known among my friends as a technology skeptic, the experience we’ve had with Monarch has been so positive. My students appreciate easy access to Photoshop and love how easy it is to submit pages and proofs.
