Certificate Border PNG

The downloadable borders are in png format and in most of the border templates, the content within the border is transparent which enables you to easily insert content into the border. Click on the cloud icon to download it as a PNG image.

Printable Borders

If you want to print the border as is then download it as a PDF file (the folded page icon). You can print directly from the app (the printer icon) or save the PDF on your PC and print it from that location.

Certificate Border

If you are using the border templates to create a certificate then click on “customize” and edit the text. If you don’t want a certificate border but just a plain empty border then you can print the empty border only. If you open the certificate and see dummy text it will print if you print as-is. Click on the little x to delete the text.

Other Uses for these Free Borders

Our certificate maker is very versatile and can be used for other purposes as well. Since all text can be edited you can write whatever you want within the border and you can even upload your own photos and logos to create anything you want with these free borders.
