Serving the San Diego Area since 2007
Darla has been serving the San Diego and Temecula area schools since 2007 and enjoys working with schools to help them create and preserve their memories.
Darla’s goal is to provide extensive customer service in all areas related to yearbook from design, curriculum, technology training, and marketing strategies. She is devoted to providing quick responses and the best possible resources for her staffs, advisers, and administrators. She understands the demands of advising a yearbook and balancing other obligations, and is committed to making your life easier, more time efficient, and more manageable.
Darla cares about my students
At first, I was worried about taking over yearbook, but Darla wasn’t just about the sale, she cared about my students and capturing their memories forever. She is a perfect trainer & therapist who listens to you rant after late night deadlines or helps find the financial route to give your book that special something. Jostens is a great company but a great company is only great because of the people who are a part of it. Darla makes Jostens great.

Darla empowers my staff!
Yearbook changed my life in high school, I learned many real world skills, 20 years later I was asked to teach yearbook and called Jostens. Darla showed me the ease of designing with YTO. She invests her time and enthusiasm into empowering my staff. She adds laughter into the pressure-packed newsroom. Her responses are always lightening quick. The Jostens difference is a people-first business model; I especially feel that working with Darla.

We are fortunate to work with Darla
We are fortunate to work with Jostens and Darla. The words, “going above and beyond” only begin to touch on the service provided by Darla. She always responds quickly and trains us on all new features of Yearbook Avenue; she is my go-to problem solver, and above all a kind-hearted and caring friend. Year after year, through tough times and personal crisis, she has been there for my school, my class, and me, to produce award-winning yearbooks. I cannot say enough good things about Darla Berkel.
