Tips on Making a Certificate

1
If you want to print a certificate you’ve made in Crello—nothing stops you! Keep in mind that the printed certificate will look as good as it looks on your computer if printed on quality paper with quality ink.
2
Finished a language course with excellence? Laminate your printed certificate for durability or frame it to hang on the wall. However, it’s not recommended to do this with important documentation that, for instance, verifies your identity. It’s better to keep it in a neat dark place so that all security marks and the paper itself are protected from direct sunlight and therefore are preserved in a good state for many years.
3
It’s easy to make a design with specific requirements in Crello. You don’t always need to pick a template to access the artboard and start creating. Enter custom dimensions on the homepage to make a design of the size you need. You can resize an already-existing design too.

Want to create your own certificate from scratch but don’t know where to start from? Just browse the templates we already have in our Design Ideas section, get inspired, and then go create your own design.

FAQ

How do I resize my design?

Resizing your design is super-easy. While on the artboard, find the Resize button on the upper right corner. Then pick the size you need and after your design is resized, move objects around to place them neatly according to the new dimensions.

I can’t find a template that fits my needs, what should I do?

First of all, do not worry! Secondly, just create a design from scratch. Pick the format so that Crello opens an artboard with the canvas of the needed size. Then, browse our media library on the left side of the screen to find the background, pictures, and design objects for your design or upload your own. Place objects on the artboard and tweak with the help of the tools on the upper subheader.

How to transform design objects?

Objects tab in the menu on the left contains various elements for making your designs more individual. These are shapes, lines, borders, icons, etc. To add a new object to your design, please choose a suitable element on the left and click on it or drag it on the canvas. Use the Delete button in the editor or the Backspace button on your keyboard or just drag the object beyond the artboard to remove it. Note that illustrations and icons can have more than just one color, and such a feature lets you modify colors up to your needs provided that there are no more than 4 colors used.

How do I add accents or umlauts to my text?

To add special symbols to your text, click on the text block and then click on the A button on the left side of the subheader to see all text editing options. Find the Special Symbols button and choose the ones you need from a drop-down list.

We made sure you don’t need to perform a lot of actions to make stunning designs. Just choose a layout to start from.
