In version Certificate Creator 4.0 we added a new feature to allow members to sign a certificate with their mouse. If your computer supports a touch screen then you can also use your finger (drawing tablets are also supported).
This is a first for our Christmas certificates, but a request was made for a Naughty List Certificate. Well if it helps motivate your kids to be on their best behavior before Christmas arrives then that’s great. Start creating.
To show a quick example of the new site in action and how easy it is to customize this certificate I created a video to show that from log-in to customization I can get a certificate customized and ready to print in about 1 minute!
Customizing The Naughty List Certificate
A quick walkthrough on customizing a Certificate Creator template. In this example we open the Santa’s Naughty List certificate and customize it.

- Change text on the certificate
Toll Free Number Cancelled
Just a heads up but we have cancelled the toll free number. For 99.9% of you that means nothing as our preferred method of communication is via our support forms. After 13 years of having a dedicated toll free number we have decided to cancel it, the only calls ever recieved on it were telemarketers or other forms of solitication. If you need us or have questions feel free to reach out to us via the forms inside the Certificate Creator app or the contact us form.
The conversion of the certificate assets from version 3 to 4 is coming along. Over the July 4th holiday we were able to add 252 Clip Art pieces to version 4.0 of the Certificate Creator. We ported over all certificate templates in the Patriotic and Religious categories. Here is one of the NEW certificates for Outstanding Academic Excellence:
Next up is to move the remaining borders from version 3 to the version 4 application and the remaining Sports category certificates.
Version 4.0 Coming Soon
Take the next version of the Certificate Creator for a spin and let us know what you think. This is a complete rewrite of the front end and the back end! Your current Certificate Creator logins will work, that is if you were current in the last few years. There is also a free membership type to choose from! Not all the templates and clip art are in the new system, with 17 years of images to go through and convert it will take some time to round everything up. We’ve had 8 different servers and hard drives over those years. Did I mention any memberships new or renewed with the new system are ½ off?
- Search feature
- Sign certificates with your own handwriting. This will be a Premium feature but available to everyone for now
- More font options utilizing Google Fonts
- Center, align, rotate text
Just in time for Christmas we've added new certificates to match the holiday theme. There are 2 new Official Santa Nice List certificates for good girls and boys. Then there are a couple of fun certificates that play on two of my favorite Christmas movies. Major Award Certificate gets it's inspiration from A Christmas Story movie and the Jelly of the Month Club Certificate is from the classic Chevy Chase movie Christmas Vacation. Start creating.
These new certificates didn't make the cutoff deadline to be included in the iOS version of our Christmas Certificates but the iOS app is available from the Apple App Store as well:
We have added 14 new Certificates of Appreciation to the Certificate Creator Site and released a new iOS app! The 14 certificates include Military Appreciation, Volunteer Appreciation and other certificates worthy of business and school use. The iOS app also allows you to not only print the certificates but you can share them on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and other social networks.
In the CertificateCreator.com application you can find these new certificates in the Appreciation category.
This might not cure your World Cup Fever, but it just might help. We have released an app for Apple iOS devices with soccer/fútbol/futsal certificates and awards.
Some of the certificates:
- Golden Ball Award
- Golden Boot Award
- Golden Glove Award
- Clean Sheet Award
- Nutmeg Award
- Fair Play
- Most Valuable Player
- Certificate of Participation
- Certificate of Achievement
- Smelliest Equipment Award
- And more…
It's been a while, a long while since we've updated the blog. For the most part the CertificateCreator.com has been running along with people creating and printing their certificates without any intervention from me. We have been busy working on some new ideas and we are ready to get the word out and into your hands and onto your iPhones and iPads. Since the first of the year I have been quietly releasing small Certificate Creator theme packs for iOS devices. The first one was suppose to be released for the Christmas season with some of our popular Christmas certificates but we ran into a little approval hiccup and weren't granted into the app store till after Christmas. Up next was a theme pack for Valentines Day. Once again an approval hiccup had us miss the February 14th date. Not to despair I released a third app, this one featuring the certificates that are currently in the Free Area of the site. Third time was a charm as it breezed right thru the approval process.
These iOS offerings are the same templates with some slight and subtle changes here and there. The main difference to the iOS apps are their customization options. All that is available to change are certain fields like the recipients name, what the certificate is for, date and who the certificate is from. Unlike the full membership area where anything on the certificate can be changed the iOS apps are limited.
The main focus of the iOS apps are still printing but the iOS apps also enable sharing via social networks. The apps can share certificates to Facebook, Twitter, email and Flickr as well as to the user's camera roll.
Give them a go on your iPhone and iPad:
