This is page 5 of Create a Certificate of Recognition in Word 2010
Take a look at how your certificate will print:
File > Print
- Print a Proof
Sometimes an actual print out will reveal issues not apparent in the on-screen preview. Print a copy of your certificate on plain paper. Proofread. Do you need to adjust your margins? Are there any typos? Is the font too small? Do you not like the positioning of the gold seal? If there's a problem, fix it.
- Final Print
For your final print, load your printer with the paper you want to use for your certificate. Sure, plain paper works but for something a bit more special consider lightly colored parchment paper or one of these other Certificate Papers.
Want to do multiple certificates for several recipients? Use Mail Merge. You'll need to set up a data file with all the names (and personalized descriptions if they aren't all the same). Then you'll create your certificate as the merge document, inserting codes in place of actual names. About.com Word Processing Guide Rebecca Johnson has instructions on How to Create a Microsoft Word 2010 Mail Merge.
