Who is Multimedia Technology?

Founded in 1989 as a video yearbook franchise, our Group has grown to a one-of-a-kind, independent, full-service yearbook publishing company producing high school and university yearbooks across the country. Our mission is… “to help capture the maturing moments in the lives of students.” We began doing business using the traditional model –representing just one yearbook printing company. One day we discovered that most yearbook companies also offer commercial book printing services in the plant “across the street.” Then we discovered the BIG SECRET - the cost to print a yearbook in the commercial plant can be 50-60% less!
