For anything else, customize and add branding elements by adding the color theme of the event and your organization's logo for added credibility.

4. Authenticate the Certificate

The recognition itself gives a rewarding feeling, but it would be even more excellent if the participant is appreciated by the head of the company, event, or conference, so include a space for his name, position, and a signature line for signing purposes.

5. Review, Edit, and Print

Review everything on your sample certificate. Make sure that there are no typographic errors and misspelled names or words. Also, you can let someone review your work and ask for unbias suggestions and edit everything based on their suggestions. Afterward, print it and make sufficient copies for the total number of participants.
