Made to Order

Our certificate frames center around the 8 1/2 x 11 page. Dictated by the digital age, the piece of paper we all know and love will forever shape the proportions of our products. We do offer frames to fit the traditional 8 x 10 certificate size, but 8 1/2 x 11 far out-paces the 8 x 10 / A4 tradition.

With size in mind, the options are limitless for certificate design. I wish more companies or organizations would think about vertical orientation, layering color graphics and including foils in their printed certificate shells. Foil accents can feed through your office printer. And color reinforces your brand as a symbol for team.

Another consideration is variable data printing which is common-place for large volume certificate reproduction. A simple spread sheet organization of names and inscriptions can give you the personal wording worthy of each of your certificates.

Here is a link to variable data printing if you are interested in learning more.
