Create Your Own Certificate for Free

with Adobe Spark

Make unique certificates in minutes. No design skills needed.

Design your own certificate now

Before the arrival of graphic design software, you probably thought of certificates only as something you received, a document professionally produced by some distant designer. Now with the Adobe Spark Post certificate maker, you’re empowered to create and hand out that personal recognition. If you teach a course, organize a competition, or just want to celebrate an achievement in the life of someone special, a custom-made certificate lends official status to your gesture.

It's easy to make your own certificate

When you sit down with Spark Post to create a certificate, you don’t have to know ahead of time how you want it to look. Spark’s inspiration gallery offers you the chance to browse through templates and designs created by professionals, and with one click you can fit your own words into a polished graphic package. Design filters and color palettes guide your choices so that the finished product looks visually coordinated. You’re free to try out different ideas and experiment with images, because you can always erase a step if you change your mind.

Take your design to the next level

Using the Spark certificate creator means you’re not restricted to anyone else’s idea of how your certificate should look. You can resize your text, move it around the page, add special effects filters, make elements transparent, and change border configuration. The magic layout function moves your text as you experiment with different layouts, so you always see what your design will look like. The certificate generator guides you through each design choice, one at a time, taking care of all the technicalities behind the scenes.

Give recognition to those that deserve it

With the power to make unlimited free certificates, you’ll start finding more and more occasions to celebrate people’s achievements. Did your assistant burn the midnight oil to help you get a project done? Now you can give them a “Best Teammate of the Month” award. Has your third-grade class won the school’s recycling award? Do you want to give someone a gift certificate for a catered dinner? The possibilities are as endless as kindness itself.
