I had a request this week from a client to produce a certificate of achievement for their clients who had successfully completed their computing training. It had to be in a format that could be mail merged with the client's name and printed on a standard office colour printer - on heavier stock.
This is a great idea. I have always believed in the carrot rather than the stick and in my experience an acknowledgement from a respected source that you have completed a task successfully is great encouragement. It is also a low cost way to show your staff or your customers that you appreciate what they have achieved.
I did a quick Google search for certificates but decided on my own design in the end - and the client is very happy. However, if this is not your strength here are a couple of sites which might help you. Or give me a call and E.V.C. Marketing can help you out.
