Award Certificates Enhanced With Calligraphy Stand Out

Calligraphy added to an award or letter enhances the document and makes it more impressive.

Whether it's a certificate of marriage, honor award document, achievement or graduation diploma, a special award personalized wiith elaborate lettering makes the presentation even more beautiful and unique.

Calligraphy is an art form of handwriting - simply watching the technique as a writer puts theletters onto paper is a treat for the eyes.

The Benefits of Reward Certificates

The cost is small and the benefits are tremendous

Everyone who works toward a goal deserves recognition for their achievements. An printed award is a visible record of achievement and accomplishment. We strive to complete schooling and receive our diploma. We study and practice our lessons so we can progress to the next level, whether the topic is math, music, medicine, cooking or learning to garden.

If you have a limited budget, you can easily design and print a personalized certificates for a deserving student or team member using a word processor and a template or custom graphics and border clip art.

Add a gift coupon or IOU for a favored treat or personal kindness, or perhaps a ticket to a special event to the package and create a priceless and much-appreciated reward.

One of the simplest, yet most effective rewards a teacher, team leader or manager can offer to a student or group is a letter of recognition or achievement.

Wacky Rewards for Silly Achievements

Just for Fun Recognition Rewards

We all know *someone* who deserves recognition for an outrageous reason or memorable act! End of project, end of season and end of an era events offer the perfect opportunity for "roasting" a team member or classmate. Given in jest, these are lighthearted awards based on a bit of fact or truth that's unique to the recipient.

Even Andy Rooney knew that it doesn't cost a lot to name someone Employee (or Student) of the Month.

How about a Hershey Kiss presentation for the student most successful at kissing up to the teacher, or a Whine and Cheese award for the top complainer on the staff ... maybe a megaphone for the family chatterbox?

Joke awards are popular at summer camp, school end rallies, and retirement parties.

eclecticeducati1 on January 02, 2011:

Never mind, I tried 1 more time to "like" it and it took! :)

eclecticeducati1 on January 02, 2011:

Great resource! I tried to "like" it, but it wouldn't take. After trying about 10-15 times, I gave up. *sigh* I did bless the lens though.

David Gardner from San Francisco Bay Area, California on October 20, 2010:

Nice lens! (I'd give you a certificate, but can't figure out how to get the certificate to stay in this box!). I've liked, thumbs-upped, favorited, and lensrolled your cool lens! Congrats on a great job!

Kirsti A. Dyer from Northern California on September 25, 2010:

Great resource. I don't think that one can give too many awards to kids. These days they need lots of positive reinforcement. May print out some for my own.

JoyfulPamela2 from Pennsylvania, USA on September 15, 2010:

Definitely kudos to you for this fabulous page! Kids (and adults) love to receive awards even for small things. What a great way to support those we care for! : )

Nice! I can print some of these certificates and present them during our family reunion. This will really come as a surprise. Hopefully, all will enjoy receiving their recognition. 5*

TeachYourKidsToSwim on March 29, 2010:

@anonymous: I agree, their confidence can develop quickly with these things!! You might want to try it when you teach your kids to swim! Check out how you can teach them:

anonymous on January 07, 2010:

this page is great, one suggestion - what about including point cards? Like a card with many spaces to colour in points or place stickers. That'd be swell. But again, great site!

anonymous on July 27, 2009:

It's amazing what a boost getting a certificate for achievement will give to a child's self confidence!

Tiddledeewinks LM on June 05, 2009:

Nice for the home schooling set!

funversity on May 11, 2009:

Well done! You have created an excellent selection of awards, certificates, and diplomas.
