A certificate of appreciation is a great way to let someone know you appreciate their time, effort, gesture or contribution. Its costs practically nothing (all of our award certificates are free) and conveys your message in a fun manner.

Make sure that the certificate of appreciation is appropriate for the occasion

There are many different reasons to award someone with a certificate of appreciation and the actual certificate should be adapted accordingly. For example, if you are giving it to a child to appreciate her behavior then the certificate can be fun and colorful. On the other hand, if you are awarding it to a staff member on behalf of a company then the certificate should be more formal and could include the company’s logo. We offer free printable certificates of appreciation to which you can add your company’s logo or school’s symbol.

Personalize the certificate – add your own photo, logo or symbol

Once you have downloaded the certificate of appreciation template add the relevant details to personalize it – the recipient’s name, the date, reason for the award, title of the organization or person giving the award.

You can either use a certificate that is pretty much ready besides the recipient’s name or you can use a blank certificate template and insert your own text. This gives you more flexibility but is also slightly more work.

Have the certificate framed and/or use good quality paper

If you are creating the certificate for a formal occasion then be sure to print it on good quality paper.  If you have it framed it will look even more impressive. A frame doesn’t even have to cost that much.

If you didn’t find the perfect certificate on this page then please feel free to look around the site. We offer hundreds of different printable certificate templates and most of them can be used for multiple purposes and/or adapted for any occasion.
