About this Recognition Certificate

    This is very helpful, but when I go to make another one, I have to refresh the page each time. Can you just make a writable PDF using this paper or something that you can put a link online that way? Kind of like how has the medical forms?

      Sorry I don’t have the software to make that type of form. If someone wants to make one and send it to me I will add it.

    I love this form and I’m able to enter my scouts info but the generated pdf is boarderless. It’s just a white sheet of paper. Any tips? I’d love to use this for our pack.

      Try it again. I think I have fixed the problem with the border not printing.

    Can this be made without Boy so it is just Scouts of America? Thanks

    What font is used in these certificates. I need to add a text and I would like to match font.


    1. Scouter Mom Avatar

      It is Calibri with a fallback to any available san-serif.

    I love these certificates! Any way we can adjust to have a landscape version of this? (Many Scouting certificate items are in landscape).

    I am trying to download the pdf of the Arrow of light award. I type in all my information, but when I click submit I go to a page that says “You do not have access to view this PDF.” Is there anything I can do so I can download these files? Our pack has 2 that have earned the AOL during this crazy time and we would love to make them something special.

      Try again. There was an update to the plugin which generates the form. I made some changes to the configuration which I think will solve this problem.

        This will not work for me. What am I missing or doing wrong? When I hit submit it just says “submitting” and stays there way for hours doing nothing.

          Try again. An update caused some issues but I think I fixed them.

    Give it another try. It should be working again.

    We lost a ton of knowledge and expertise when leaders moved on. THANK YOU so much for sharing this amazingly beautiful certificate. It is so special to share with the scouts. Your site is the best!

    This was a perfect template for summer camp attendance.
    There were a few hiccups but it really filled the bill for a good looking certificate that didn’t have a pre-school appearance.
    My Scouts will love it.

    Many thanks,

    Scoutmaster Norm, (OR)
