Humans are competitive creatures. We participate in contests and exert our will to win. And in order to win, we put in all our efforts, blood and tears. Be it a primary school race on the sidewalk or the Olympic arena in Athens, we sweat our guts to come out ahead. Even behavioral scientists talk about our love for winning and how triumphs are a source of personal satisfaction to us.
No matter what the reason, the joy of getting recognized is too great to pass on. And what’s a greater evidence of our exemplary performance than a reward or a certificate? So without any further ado, let’s talk business. Let’s talk about the reason why you’re here – certificates and certificate printing.
Why are certificates needed?
Certificates have been the commonest means of recognizing someone for their work. Today, even showing up and participating in competitions gets you a certificate. All kinds of organisations require them, be it a college, a small firm, a large company or a global business house. Moreover, there’s an endless list of contenders and hence, a perennial requirement of certificates.
And this might make you wonder – heck, why not just power on the PC and print the certificates sitting at home or office?
Well, because it’s not that simple.
Why do you need certificate printing from professionals
While it’s actually possible to print certificates at your home, it’s not recommended. Instead, it’s recommended that you consult a professional print provider. Providers such as Orchid Digitals in Pune. Here are some reasons why they trumps over SOHO – home printing:
- Extremely high quality printing:
All our prints are done using high resolution digital printers. This renders the resulting certificates immune to common issues like smudging and banding. The prints are crisp and rich in color. Oh, and they look pretty fantastic too!
- Ample choice of paper varieties:
We print certificates on a 300 GSM thick card stock for that premium look and feel. Apart from these, you can also choose from a variety of textured and metallic finish papers. These specialty papers add a different dimension to the prints and make them look pretty exclusive.
Additional benefits of printing certificates at Orchid Digitals
- Time is money:
Certificates are often required on a very short notice. At times like these, our blazingly fast digital presses step up and can meet the toughest deadlines. Need 500 certificates in half an hour or even 5000 before end of day? Don’t worry – We’ve got you covered.
- Money is money too:
Our high-quality prints come at an unbelievably low price. A standard 300 GSM color certificate costs in the range of 7-10 rupees. Textures and metallic cost a little more. That’s big money saved in comparison to the costs and troubles you’d have to endure to produce these at home or office. Not to forget, the prints you get at this price are pretty great!
- It’s the details that matter:
To begin printing, all you have to do is punch in the recipients’ name, rank and other relevant data. And voila! A generic certificate instantly morphs into an intensely personalized award. Regardless of job size, Orchid Digitals helps you personalize each of your certificates. With us, you can input different names, grades, marks, etc., in the same print job, making life easier.

Individual data in certificate printing
Managing and organizing events is no easy task. Be it a debate competition, a race or a hack-a-thon, certificates are always required. And often, the requirement of certificates comes up at the last moment. And when it does, Orchid Digitals comes to the rescue! We also print certificates with variable data, such as the names of the different participants. This is made possible using VDP, short for Variable Data Printing.
- First, we take an excel file from you with all the different data fields and entries. Examples of these include names, rank, achievements, reason for recognition/being awarded, etc.
- Next, you provide the base template/artwork of the certificate.
- Finally, we feed the data/excel file and certificate artwork into our machine’s VDP software. This software merges the two. Imagine that the data file contains 100 records (say 100 different names). VDP uses this data to create 100 certificates each containing a different name.This automates and overcomes the hassle of having to sit and manually fill in entries on the certificates. Neat, right!?
