Singular Entity Account Types vs Group Account Types: If you need to use or mention multiple names in yearbooks, certificates and account names, you should use one of the Group Account Types such as Collective, Partnership, Cooperation, Alliance, Collaboration or Consortium that allows group entries and multiple entities. It is important for you to know and understand that if you do not intend to have multiple entity names listed as part of your account type and yearbook page, then it does not make sense to use Group Account types since Group Account Types are more expensive. Using Singular Entity Account Types, such as Agency, Young, Professional, Academics, Media, Government, Enterprise, Non-Profit, Start-up or Young, you can still list up to two team members at the team-members section of your designs. The difference between Singular Entity Account Types and Group Account Types is that Group Account Types will allow you to list multiple, up to three (3) entity names in yearbook pages, for the account name and for designer rankings while the Singular Entity Account Types will only allow up to one (1) entity name for account name, designer rankings and yearbook page. Furthermore, Group Account Types allows you to list more team members for your design as indicated below.
