We have had numerous requests here at Teachnet.Com for a library of downloadable, printable certificates and awards. As we work towards creating such a library of PDF files and blacklines for you to use, we now make our first contribution to the library online. If you would like to suggest an addition to the library, please email us.

Printing

The files below are all PDFs (portable document formats) and can be viewed and printed at high-resolution using Adobe Acrobat. Acrobat is FREE for download (Mac & PC) at http://www.adobe.com.

Gold Foil
For the illusion of a professional foil stamped border or name, you might think you have to send the job to a printer. Not so fast! Gold foil and seals can turn an ordinary certificate into something truly extraordinary.

You can order laser foil from Paper Access or visit your local Staples, Office Max, or other business and paper supply store. The foil uses the heat of the fuser in your laser printer or copier to adhere to the black toner on the certificate. For instructions (with pictures), visit paperaccess.com.

PaperDirect also offers a complete line of paper, certificates, seals and more. Check out their product selection or request a catalog.

This Certificate of Achievement is 8.5 x 11 inches and has lines to fill in: the recipient, what the award is for, and who the award is awarded by. Set up your computer to print the information on the certificate, type it in with a typewriter, or hand letter the certificate yourself. The gold foil process mentioned above works great on this one.

Give with glue sticks (if you dare) so they can attach pictures next to their friends' signatures and farewell wishes.
