Using Free Word Templates To Create Certificate Of Appreciation Award
To use one of the Office templates, click the template with the mouse to highlight it and then choose Open, or double-click the template to open it up.
Once open, most templates show you where it is designed to be edited in order to customize the document to your needs. Be sure to look the document over before printing out the final version. There is nothing more embarrassing than presenting someone an award certificate with the words, "Insert name here," printed on it.
In this case, the award certificate template has several areas that need to be changed in order for the award to be completed. The name of the award, the name of the recipient, and so on, can all be customized for the specific award.
If you do not need all of the lines or sections, keep in mind that they can be deleted as well to make the award be suitable for the occasion. For example, the award certificate we are designing is not an annual award, so the line, “presents the [year or time span]" is not necessary for our purposes. Clicking this line highlights it for our selection. Press delete, and the text disappears leaving behind a classy award that makes sense for our occasion.
