foiled and embossed certificates


The Print Group Australia offer a variety of design and print services for Education and Training organisations and our custom designed foiled and embossed certificates are a very popular product at the moment. For many training organisations, ensuring that the certificates they issue to their students are secure is becoming increasing important from a compliance point of view.

The Print Group Australia's graphic design studio can custom design your certificates so they are unique to your organisation and also assist in reducing fraudulent reproduction.

We recommend branding and designing the certificates with your logo and watermark and our design team typically offer a variety of concept designs for you to choose from. The foiled or embossed stamp can be designed in any shape or size needed with important and unique information such as your logo, rto number or unique design element. We have many foil colours available, with silver and gold being the most popular. Some training organisations also like to have the added security of our anti-copy watermarked background. The anti-copy background will appear with a “copy” watermark on the background when photocopied or scanned.

We recommend our systems board paper range for certificates which is a high quality, uncoated paper stock. The most common weights used by our clients for certificates is 150gsm, 210gsm or 250gsm, but do have a range of paper stock and weights available on request. If you are unsure what paper weight to choose, we are more than happy to send samples for you to review. It’s important to check that the paper you select will overprint through your office printer before you place your order.

We are often asked if a sample certificate can be printed for proofing purposes, but this is quite difficult with the foiled and embossed certificates. As the certificates are printed on offset machinery, the cost to set up a print run for 1 sample is quite costly. If you are concerned about the printed colour on your certificates, we can always arrange a press-check which allows you to view and check the colours as they are coming off the press (read more here in our blog – what is a press check for more information). Once the certificates are printed, they are sent off to be finished with the foil and emboss embellishments. This is another manufactured process again, where custom plates or blocks are created with your foil and/or embossed seal (Read more about foiling and embossing in further detail in our blogs titled – what is embossing and debossing & use foiling to create elegant sophisticated print). Again, the process to set up the plates to produce 1 sample is quite expensive. Our designers will always be very detailed during the design process as to what is printed, foiled and/or embossed on your artwork proofs and you can always request foil samples from our existing collection so you can physically view the foil and emboss finish before you place your order.
