Traditional Certificates

Traditional Certificate With Lines – Write by hand on the lines.

Traditional Certificate Fillable – Type your text in Adobe Reader and print.

I found a really good sale on certificate paper, the kind with a traditional border where you write or type your own wording. You can buy it on Amazon or any office supply store.

I made 2 versions of a template for you. One has lines for writing by hand, and the other uses Adobe Reader to type in your preferred words.

These are very traditional looking certificates, so you can use them with older students and even adults. They are great for teachers who don’t have a color printer.

The “fillable” certificate has blue fields in Adobe Reader that appear if you click your cursor in the correct area. After selecting the field, your cursor will show you where to type your information. Adobe Reader doesn’t allow you to use your own fonts or to resize the fonts  at the time of this post.

I certainly hope I haven’t made any mistakes this time! If you find any, please let me know right away! Thanks!

    Thank you, Susan. I just remembered a little while ago that I had not filled out certificates for tonights recital as I have been out of town and this week has been a whirlwind. The thought of doing them by hand was daunting. While looking through my studio emails for some other information, I saw your post and was able to add the information to personalize each one and I am done! I used some paper with a music border that I had, and I slipped each one into a clear sheet protector. Thank you for saving me today!

    Is there any way of removing the “Page 1” that shows up on the certificate when you go to print it? Thanks.

    • Susan Paradis

      If you see a page number, we are happy to report the page number does not show up on the printed certificate!

    These look great, Susan. Thank you for your hard work and sharing these versatile forms.

      You’re welcome Diane. Sometimes we just want something simple in black and white!
