Add small visuals like icons and illustrations

Embellish your certificate design with icons and small illustrations that reflect the theme of the occasion.

Incorporate your branding into your certificate design

Find a font that speaks to you

A decorative font is the perfect way to grab the attention of readers. Help the recipient of the certificate feel special by writing their name in a bold, celebratory font.

Depending on the purpose of your certificate, find fonts that are quirky and playful, cool and business-appropriate, and something in between.

Browse through Venngage’s font library to find the right font to fit your event, brand, or individual recipient. Pick from a wide selection of sleek, modern fonts, decorative script fonts, dramatic gothic fonts, and more.

Embellish your certificate with icons and images

Pick a background design from our image library or upload your own background image. Your image will automatically be saved in your library so you can use it again later.
