When was the last time you received a certificate? Perhaps it was a gift certificate, or certificate of achievement recognizing a job well done? It’s possible that it has been years since you even thought about printable certificates, because let’s face it–everything is digital these days!
But just because people may not be printing certificates as often as in the past, doesn’t mean that certificates are less valuable or rewarding. In fact, certificates are even more valuable today, as professionals on LinkedIn and other job platforms seek attractive and meaningful ways to showcase their accomplishments and skills.
Until recently, individuals and businesses had limited ways to create and print certificates, and even fewer avenues to manage and distribute certificates on a bulk scale. SimpleCert® was created to address the needs of all users, whether you want to design a single printable certificate, or need to create and dispatch hundreds of certificates at once.
SimpleCert®’s intuitive certificate maker is a fun and easy way to create printable certificates for any purpose. Even better, you can use SimpleCert® to save, store and send your certificate all through our browser-based platform. Sounds simple, right?
Keep reading–we’ll show you several ways you can use SimpleCert® to create certificates for every occasion, and how to get the most out of every unique feature of our online certificate generator.
