Create customized sports certificates by yourself

No need to hire a designer just to create a certificate when Canva provides you with easy drag-and-drop interface and editable templates that make designing a cake walk.

Start by choosing a certificate from Canva’s amazing collection of professional templates. Use editing tools to add your school/organization name, participants name and other information. You can further personalize the certificates by adding photographs of participants. Just click on the green ‘Upload your own image’ tab and select images from your computer. Easily edit the uploaded images with tools like crop, resize, and filter. With Canva’s advanced functionality you can also adjust the contrast and brightness of the uploaded image.  

Share your design with colleagues and seniors

When creating certificates for an organization, you might need to get approval from your seniors. With Canva, there’s no need to download the certificate and email a new version every time. Instead, you can use the share option to send the design to the concerned person directly. All you have to is, click on the share tab, add the email address of people you want to share the design with and click send.

You can also share your design with colleagues and ask for design edits. Just remember to click on the ‘Can edit’ box, while sharing the design. This will give them access to your design on their Canva account, allowing them to make changes.

Get your certificates printed in best quality

Every design you download from Canva gets saved in 300 DPI (dots per inch), which is the professional quality. All you have to do is download the certificate with Print-PDF option.

Send certificates directly to awardees via email or social media with Canva’s share tool. Download the certificate in image format (JPG) and send it through WhatsApp or Viber to the winners.  


Can I get sports related vectors/images for the certificate?

Canva’s amazing media library has over a million images, illustrations, and graphics. You can find the required picture by typing the keyword into the search bar. Most of the images are free, while only a few cost as little as $1.

Is it possible to add logo, emblem, and scanned signature on the certificate?

Yes, you can add scanned signature and logos on the certificate. All you have to do is, click on the green ‘Upload your own image’ tab and select the desired image from your computer. You can upload images in various formats like JPG, PNG, and SVG. Once uploaded, the image gets saved in your account’s upload folder and can be used in future designs as well.

How many certificates copies can I print?

There is no print restriction on the designs created on Canva. However, if your design contains paid elements from Canva’s media library, then you can print up to 2000 copies only. For more prints, just get an extended or multi-use license from Canva.
