The Series 300 black certificate cover measures approximately 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ when closed and can accommodate a folded sheet of standard sized  8 1/2″ x 11″ certificate paper.  The lightly textured, pliable certificate cover includes a gold or silver (corresponding to imprint color) elastic band called a pawl.  The pawl holds the folded certificate in the cover.

These durable certificate holders are our most economical product and typically used by preschools, kindergartens, learning centers, elementary schools and middle schools.

Black Certificate Cover

Custom Logo Hot Foil Imprint

Upload a logo or custom text and we will manufacture a personalized magnesium die.  This metal die can be inserted into our hot foil machines to imprint gold or silver foil on the black certificate cover.

Custom die manufacturing adds approximately five business days to the  first order.
The die is kept in your file so that future orders ship in as few as two business days.

  • There is a one-time charge for a custom die.  This will not be charged on re-orders.
  • By uploading artwork, you agree that you are the owner of this artwork and that you consent and authorize Graduation Ink to reproduce the work.
  • Because Graduation Ink subsidizes portions of the setup and labor involved in magnesium die production, the customer does not retain ownership of the die.
  • The maximum size of the imprint area is 4″ x 4 1/2″.
  • Please watch your email for messages from graduationink.com if we have questions.
