Certificates for Recognition

Please read below as it is short and provides very useful information.

A quality certificate is a great way to recognize someone or to nice way to show what you or someone has done in scouting.  Below are a number of certificates that I am glad to personalize for you.  So if you don't find what you want, please ask as I gladly will help you.  The actual sizes are 8.5" x 11".

My most popular certificates are the "Early Scout Certificates" (#7) with the American flag.  I am glad to make any changes to meet your needs.  All you have to do is make a request.  For example, Wood Badgers sometimes want the British flag.  The second most popular are the Baden-Powell Eagle Scout certificates.

I can also include Spanish (Espaņol) wording as long as I have a good clear document to work with.  Any of the special marks needed for the Spanish language are available to me.

The certificates are printed on "card stock White" or "Ivory Granite" paper and I can assure you that you will be pleased with the quality.  Because of printer limitations, there will be about two tenths of an inch around the edge that will not be printed on.  Any frame will cover this.  The Hoover, Roosevelt and Baden-Powell certificates can be printed as 8" x 10" with no border if requested.

It is important that you provide me any adjustments in wording you want, the titles of the people you want to sign the certificate, the date you want and any other information appropriate to the certificate.

The cost of certificates is $5 or $6 based upon the volume of ink used to print.  You can download an XLS Order Form for certificates.  These are not meant to replace official BSA certificates; they are intended to add enjoyment when recognizing others.

Questions?  Please use my contact page.

None of these certificates are official.  Most are very old BSA or British scout certificates that I have had fun creating.  They have been designed to make presentations a little more fun and I am always glad to modify them to meet your needs at no extra cost.

You can see examples of special order certificates on my "examples" web page.
