Whether you want to make a custom holiday gift certificate for your store or just want to print a nice certificate for a loved one, you can follow the guidelines provided in this article to make a custom gift certificate.
The easy way to make custom holiday gift certificates is to make certificates from online templates. Gift Certificate Factory provides a selection of gift certificate templates for holidays and if that’s not enough, you can also find other templates on the web by typing “holiday gift certificate template” in Google. You will find a few other certificates that way that you can customize yourself.
The hard way is to make the gift certificates yourself using design software like Photoshop for example.
In any case, your gift certificate should contain elements that convey the desirability of your gift certificate: a few common elements, a specific message, good design and good photography.
Customize the gift certificate
Once you’ve found a suitable gift certificate template, you can customize it by writing the recipient’s name, your name or the name of your company and, if appropriate, the certificate value. Most business certificates also have a certificate number associated, which is important for several reasons, among them keeping track of gift certificates and fighting against fraud. That way you know that when a certificate is redeemed it’s a legit one and you can evaluate how many certificates are redeemed so far in your gift certificate campaign. Of course, if you’re only making one certificate for a loved one, you don’t really need to track gift certificates.
Print the gift certificate
There’s a built-in print functionality on the website, so that you can just click on the template, configure your print preferences and watch the printer do its work! Just make sure you have enough paper and ink. You may want to use a sharp paper cutter or alternatively, scissors to cut the paper nicely.
