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/summerreading/summerreadingcertificates.aspx, 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.
