How to add the logo of your school or institution?

Firstly, select the template that you will be using. Click on “customize” to open the certificate maker. Click on the image icon to add an image (your logo). Select the logo file (it should be saved on your PC). It will be automatically inserted into your certificate. Move it around to wherever you would like it to appear. You can also make it larger or smaller according to your preference if applicable.

What happens if your logo has a white background that is shown on the certificate?

If you have a logo in png or gif format with a transparent background then use it. If not, then you can make the logo background transparent with graphic editing software such as Photoshop or is a free program that can be downloaded from the internet. It is simple to use compared to Photoshop, which has more features but can be overwhelming for someone who only wants to remove a background from a logo and has no Photoshop experience.

Keep doing this until the entire background has been selected. Click on “delete”. Save your logo as a png image.

What age are these graduation diplomas for?

They can be used for any grade level at any school (such as a high school diploma) or even for higher education in universities or colleges (such as a bachelor’s degree or graduate degree).
