Yearbook Inc. was founded in 1992, when Michael Nahabet's publishing organization produced one of the first ever fully digital yearbooks. Using a combination of desktop scanners, Pagemaker software, and direct digital negatives, the team accomplished a major feat for the times.
"Yearbook advisors we met were constantly complaining of the lack of choice and flexibility, along with the terrible service provided by the traditional publishing companies," says Michael. "We wanted to build a service-oriented enterprise where our activities were highly integrated with those of the yearbook advisor and the students, and make the geographical vicinity of the school to our centrally located Glendale offices a prerequisite."
Yearbook Inc.'s success is due to our profound commitment to providing genuine, joyful and effective service.

With 20 years of experience in the publishing business, Seta wears many hats at Yearbook Inc.—from administration to training students and advisors to production and design. She is known for her meticulous approach to detail in every yearbook project. Most of all, Seta enjoys helping students communicate their vision artistically.
Outside of Yearbook Inc., you can find Seta volunteering as an organizer for annual festivities at Nor Serount Cultural Association, traveling in Europe, or listening to latin music.
Fimi is one of the most loved and admired representatives of Yearbook Inc. She loves working with students to develop their creative ideas and passes on her professional skill set to fledgling editors. Her enthusiasm and energy is highly contagious. Fimi is deeply committed to the success and timeliness of every yearbook—as shown every time she chases a FedEx or UPS truck down in high heels!
When she's not at work, Fimi enjoys volunteering at the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry and, since she also grew up playing violin in her native Bulgaria, adores listening to her favorite classical pieces.
