How it works

We'll need to have a file that we can print from. 

Simply work out the total number of prints you would like, any options, and Add to Basket. 

During checkout, you'll be prompted to upload your file, and you'll be able to write any special instructions to us there. 

We don't print anything automatically. We'll check your order, make sure we understand it, and email you a PDF proof for you to approve first. This will show the final layout as it would print, and allows you to check for any mistakes. 

Once you approve your PDF proof, we'll get started and email you once we've finished. 

File Types

  • If you want plain certificates, then we need a 1 page file.
  • If you want personalised certificates, then we need a multiple files (1 name per page), or 1 combined multi-page file. 
  • Our ideal file type is a PDF saved with 'press quality' settings, set up with cropmarks and 3mm bleed. This allows us to print edge-to-edge.
    Please see our artwork guide on how to create one of these from Canva or Adobe software. 
  • We also accept JPEG, TIFF, Microsoft Word / Powerpoint / Publisher, and we can resize your file for you. 
  • We'll always check your file send you a PDF proof to approve before printing. 

Specifications

  • Uncoated card is a bond paper, with a plain natural 'paper' finish. This is the best choice for writing on, as it's suitable for all types of ink (eg fountain pens). 
  • Coated Silk card is smooth and white, with a slight finish to it, which some people prefer. It can be written on with a biro pen or marker pen. 
  • 250gsm uncoated is our standard choice for certificates, as it's thick, high quality and can be written on easily if needed. 
  • 160gsm is fine for simple certificates on thin card, and 350gsm is for premium certificates. 
  • All our paper is FSC-certified, from mixed and renewable resources. 
  • All certificates are printed in full colour and at excellent quality. The prices are the same even if your design is black & white only.

Paper Sizes

  • A4: 297 x 210mm
  • A5: 210 x 148mm (half of A4)

We don't print custom sizes, we may be able to resize your file to the nearest standard size. 

Turnaround

  • Production time starts once you have approved a PDF proof. 
  • Delivery is typically 1 working day, but can vary depending on where you are in the UK.
