Many companies offer award plaques to recognize excellence or recognize key achievements with certificate of achievement templates. Whether recognizing achievement, merit or distinction, award certificate templates really are an easy way to acknowledge other peoples’ accomplishments or display your own appreciation for their efforts – whatever the occasion. Regardless of the template you choose, you can be confident that the message you send out is one that is both genuine and sincere, as employers will take this into account when rating potential candidates!
Whether using a free certificate template for an individual or a company, there are a number of features that you will want to consider. For example, a landscape orientation may be available with some layouts. If so, this may be the way to go if you want to make the template readily available to other employees or guests. Also consider including directions to a particular feature or object on the award plaque. Free templates do not always come with these features, and you will need to add them yourself.
You may also want to consider whether the certificate template comes in landscape orientation. Landscape orientations make the most sense if you intend to display the template on a wall, as it will be viewed from an unusual angle. Otherwise, if you intend to use the template on a table or other flat surface, you may find it difficult to get the best impact. Finally, you will need to be sure that the template and the award have a proper layout – the colours, the layout of the text and any images should match up to the template and the award it will be attached to. The printing company you choose to use should have the ability to give you advice on which layout is the best for the purpose, as they are experienced in preparing hundreds of award plaques and will know which layouts look best.
