The only software we support is the free version of Adobe Reader. The PDF file should work flawlessly with the latest version of that program:
Can I print use regular paper for
Yes, the certificates are ornate enough that you do not need special certificate paper to make them look nice. Regular paper will work fine, although you may want to use a thicker paper or glossy stock to make the certificate look more professional and last longer.
Can I print the certificates on my
Yes, you can print these certificates on any regular printer. Printing them in color will definitely make them look more professional, though. If your office does not have a color printer, take the PDF to a local Kinkos or office supply store with a color copier. To avoid printing the entire PDF, write down the page numbers you want them to print ahead of time.
Do I need to scale the certificates
No, if you are given an option for page scaling in your print dialog box, choose "None" (see illustration below). The certificates are designed with plenty of border space. If you choose other scaling options, the certificates will not print correctly and may appear with a black border around them.
How do I type onto the certificate?
You can type directly into the certificates using the latest FREE version of Adobe Reader. You can also change the font style for the editable form fields (recipient name, date, presenter name). If you do not see the "Form Field Text Properties" menu, choose "View > Toolbars > Properties" in the Adobe Reader menu and then click on any form field.
How do I create my own funny awards?
You can type directly into the certificates using the latest FREE version of Adobe Reader. If you want more design flexibility and font options, there is another two-step process you can use. First print the blank templates you want from the awards PDF. Then type the areas where there are blanks on the certificates in a Word document and print the document onto the certificates. It's the same process you would use to print a Word document on your pre-printed company letterhead. I've created a Word document you can try. As always with Word, you may have to move things around a bit to get it to work for you. And be sure you set your printer to print the Word document "landscape".

There is a small plus sign
printing on my certificates next to the name field. What do I do?
You'll need to adjust your preferences in Adobe Reader. To open the Preferences dialog box, choose Edit > Preferences (Windows/UNIX) or Reader > Preferences (Mac OS), and then select Forms on the left. Uncheck "Show Text Field Overflow Indicator" and the plus sign will no longer appear.
Can I make changes to the PDF
Using the latest FREE version of Adobe Reader, you can open the PDF, type into the editable form fields (name, date, presenter), and print as many as you like. In "Funny Awards Certificates" only, you can also modify the award title and reason for award. However, the PDF is "secured" to prevent unauthorized changes. To test the functionality you need, be sure to try out a sample PDF before purchasing.
How can I copy and paste the
certificates into PowerPoint?
There are several easy methods for copying and pasting the awards into PowerPoint or other applications. Try the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard. If you hold down the ALT key (on Windows) while hitting Print Screen, you will select just the open window. Paste the certificate into PowerPoint and use the crop tool to make any adjustments. If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, there is a great free tool already installed called "Snipping Tool" (most likely under Start > All Program > Accessories). This free screen capture tool is perfect for copying and pasting the certificates. If you need a more robust screen capture tool, I highly recommend Snagit by Techsmith.
Is there a hard copy of the
No, we designed the certificates in PDF format so that you only have to print the awards you need. We are a green, eco-friendly company and like to minimize paper use. For ease of picking awards, first print the list of awards (table of contents). Write notes next to the awards you want to print, and only print those pages. You'll save trees and money!
