Free printable graduation certificate template that can be customized before you print. You can add your school’s logo and/or name. You can also edit the text so if you prefer to write “Diploma Certificate” instead of “Graduation Certificate” you can just change the text.
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 on 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 Paint.net. Paint.net 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.
How to remove a background with Paint .net
Download Paint.net if you don’t already have it. Click on the magic wand and then click on the background. Play around with the tolerance until the entire background is selected. If only part of the background has been selected then increase the tolerance. If part of the logo has been selected then decrease the tolerance. Keep doing this until the entire background has been selected. Click on “delete”. Save your logo as a png image.
