Certificates

SORT BY:
Certificates make it easy to acknowledge the hard work and accomplishments of others. Available in a variety of styles and designs, there’s an option suitable for every occasion. Staples® carries a wide selection of office supplies, including certificate paper, ribbons, and lapel pins to help you create custom awards to recognize and encourage students and colleagues' current and future successes.

Choose From Pre-printed or Blank Certificates
Award documents are available in both fill-in-the-blank and custom creation options. Pre-printed papers often feature general titles at the top, such as a certificate of participation, appreciation, or recognition, followed by several blank lines that allow you to quickly write in names, dates, and other pertinent information. Blank forms often feature a decorative border and wide open space in the center, allowing users to create custom awards for special occasions and programs that contain specific information exclusive to that event. Both are crafted from heavy weight paper that gives the awards an overall professional look and feel.

Printer Friendly Certificate Paper Makes it Easy to Create Custom Awards
Purchasing printer award paper allows you to easily create special documents to acknowledge the hard work of others from the convenience of the home or office. You simply need a computer and a printer to produce stylized sheets that recognizes the accomplishments of your students, colleagues, or participants. Many brands offer paper that works with common home and office machines, including both inkjet and laser printers. The paper is also typically acid and lignin free, reducing fading to help preserve its appearance over time.

What Colors Do Certificates Come In?
Typically awards paper features either a plan white or parchment colored background, making the words on top easy to read. Some have a faint pattern that is legible under both handwriting and print. Many trophies come with a decorative border that frames the interior contents. Borders are available in a multitude of shapes, designs, and colors. Choose from matte or metallic options to suit the feel and branding of an event. Other decorative accents like seals are also available, which are usually made of foil and pressed on the page before packaging.

How Many Certificates Are in a Pack?
Paper is sold in many different packaging options to suit different printing needs. Smaller packs range in size from 12 to 18 sheets of paper. Mid-sized packs often come with around 50 sheets of paper and some of the largest options include 100 or more sheets in a single stack. Keep multiple packages of this type of paper on hand to always be prepared to print an award at a moment's notice. The different sizing options make it simple to pick up the right amount of paper for any job.

How Big Are Certificates?
Most certificates are printed on standard 8.5 x 11 inch paper. This size fits easily in many home and office printers and is easy to handle. It is also fits in most standard award holders, sold separately, which gives the documents an official look and feel and makes it easy for recipients to display them. If you are a teacher, consider adding new certificates to your school supplies list to keep your students motivated throughout the year.
