Tips for successful certificate design:

*         The certificate should be 8.5" x 11", and should have blank outer margins of at least .25" on all sides.

*         EPS files, like the ones found on the CSLP DVD, can be scaled to any size in your document without losing resolution. These files can be manipulated in illustration programs such as Microsoft Paint or Adobe Illustrator.

*         TIFF and JPEG files can be manipulated in any photo editing program such as Adobe Photoshop (another example?). Avoid increasing these images by more than 20% of their original size. If you need an image in a different format and you cannot convert the image on your own, please email your request to the CSLP at info at cslpreads.org<mailto:info at cslpreads.org>.

*         Download the State of Oregon seal from http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/oregon.srp.certificate.aspx#Hardcopies_of_Certificates, and use it in your design.

*         When converting your design to a PDF, select a high quality print setting (in particular, images should be at a minimum of 300dpi).

*         A good rule of thumb for double-checking the resolution or print quality of your design: Open your PDF in Acrobat, and zoom in at 400%. If the images and type still look smooth (not grainy or pixelated), your design should print nicely.
