Have you recently purchased a replacement degree or transcript for personal use? You may have purchased it to hang in your office, display in public areas around your home, or just keep as a personal keepsake. Perhaps you didn’t purchase one that really looks authentic. Here are a few of the factors that set ValidGrad apart from some of its competitors.
THE RIGHT INSTITUTIONAL SEAL ON A REPLACEMENT DEGREE OR TRANSCRIPT
It is not uncommon for colleges, universities, and high schools to have a very specific seal. Depending on your university, it may come in a particular color, feature the university’s logo, and even mention the institution’s founding year. The texture will often be three-dimensional.
When other diploma makers print your replacement document, they simply use a generic stamp as the seal. ValidGrad has a team of designers who carefully craft your diploma or transcript to ensure that it looks authentic. We can even accommodate designs that include multiple metallic elements.
It is not uncommon for the seal and other lettering to appear in the wrong place on a college diploma or transcript made by another manufacturer. ValidGrad ensures that all aspects of the diploma, including the seal, are correct.
WHAT IS THE CORRECT PAPER SIZE?
It is not uncommon for bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees to be printed on their own sizes of paper. Bachelor’s degrees typically measure 8-12″ x 11″. Doctoral diplomas measure 11″ x 14″. It is common for diploma makers to have one standard size (letter) for the different diplomas they print. Depending on the type of degree and the institution that issued it, ValidGrad will provide you with the correct diploma size.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT PAPER
Most diploma makers print their diplomas on regular paper or cardstock. Official college or high school diplomas are printed on heavier paper. In order to ensure that the document looks and feels authentic, ValidGrad uses a heavier type of paper.
FONT WITH AUTHENTICITY FOR A REPLACEMENT DEGREE OR TRANSCRIPT
Most online diploma makers only offer a few font choices. It is possible that these fonts do not match those used by your college, university, or high school. In order to ensure that your transcript and degree are in the same font as your college or university, ValidGrad carefully designs them.
TRANSCRIPT OF YOUR COURSES
You can’t always customize your course list when you go to another diploma maker. The list of courses you receive may not relate to your college major. ValidGrad allows you to add your courses or use stock courses that reflect your major (even if you don’t recall the actual classes you took).
INCLUDING A DIPLOMA HOLDER
Authenticity is important to you when ordering a replacement diploma from ValidGrad. It is also a good idea to protect your diploma when displaying it publicly, and to keep the original copy in a safe place. Our diploma holders come in several colors that are very similar to the ones you received from your granting institution.
The only option available to you with some diploma makers is to add stock signatures. Depending on who you ask, the signature is the most important part of the diploma. It is important for them that their diplomas look official, just like the originals. Depending on your document, you will be able to choose from stock signatures or add the original diploma signatures.
