Did you know that free certificate templates can help you print great award certificates from your home, school or office? Printing your own awards is a cost-effective way of showing your appreciation for students or employees. Geographics certificates come with an extensive collection of free downloadable certificate templates which you can open and edit in MS Word.
To print the best awards you can make from your home or office, you will first need some printable certificates. Printable certificates of the highest quality are usually made from fine paper in a parchment, ivory, or opaque white color. They also feature border designs with very intricate detail; printable certificate designs come in many colors and may also include decorative foil patterns or embossing.
Particularly when shopping online, you can find full-sized as well as 2UP and 3UP certificates which have two and three certificates per sheet respectively. Full-size printable certificates are the standard paper size of 8.5”x11”. Mini 2UP and the 3UP gift certificates are great for elementary, kindergarten, or preschool students as well as for employee of the month and similar awards. Check out school and sports certificates to find designs for specific sports and school subjects that kids will love to receive.
Using a free template with your certificate is the key to saving time on the design process. Many design programs are costly and take time to learn. Geographics makes it easy by offering free MS word certificate templates.
