unDraw Clip Art Added

A few weeks ago I stumbled upon the unDraw clip art collection by Katerina Limpitsouni. «A constantly updated collection of beautiful svg images that you can use completely free and without attribution.» The nice images caught my eye but also the MIT license that she is using, which allows the us to incorporate them into the Certificate Creator! I’ve spent the last couple of weeks preparing the files and putting them into the system. I’m happy to announce we have brought in 100+ unDraw images that are ready to use for your certificates and awards. The unDraw library can be found in it’s own category in the Clip Art section. Select unDraw.co from the category drop-down.

The unDraw images (.svg or .png formats) can be download right from the unDraw site to use in your presentations and other projects.

I’d like to see how the unDraw images can be used in your certificates so be sure to share your certificates.

You will find these and other certificates in the system ready for you to customize and print!

Sharing Certificates

Brand new in version 4.1 is the ability to share your own creations with other Certificate Creator members. A few things to keep in mind before sharing your work:

  1. Upon publishing a certificate it will no longer be private, all CertificateCreator.com members will have access to use and print this certificate.
  2. Any shared certificate is free of any Copyright or Trademark images and/or text.
  3. Remove any names, schools or companies from the certificate before publishing.
  4. This feature is not available for Free Accounts, you’ll need to purchase a subscription to share

Basically if you have used uploaded any clip art or other files to use with your certificate then it’s probably not a good candidate to share without modifing it. We are excited to see what all our members create and share!
