Printing Your Certificate

Printing your Emailed Gift

 

Yes it’s a super quick gift and you can have it sent to anyone, anywhere in the world, now being able to view it on your computer, phone or tablet is easy, but what if I want to print out my certificate, and frame it to display it for everyone to see?

We would love for you to get the best quality print from your emailed gift and proudly present it so below we have listed a couple of methods and tips for you to achieve the best quality from your gift.

 

Printed gift of time

 

Professional Printers:

The easiest and most obvious solution and for best results we recommend taking your file to a professional printers, simply download the PDF file from the Official Time Registry, and save it to a media device, the print size will be A4 and we recommend using a matt finish paper / card of a nice weight around 150 GSM with no texture.

 

Printing from home:

For great ease and convenient use your home printer, although as this may seem a simple solution we thought we would provide a few tips. Again quite obvious but  maybe not to everyone so we thought we would mention it is to buy photographic paper of at least 150 GSM, this will produce the best results, although this is a certificate and not a photograph it does contain lots of detail that can be lost if not printed correctly. You can standard printer paper but it does absorbs a lot of ink, it then becomes heavy whilst appearing almost wet and creases easily, colours can also appear washed out or overly darkens in photos, whilst also destroying fine detail, the end result generally is not very good. 

Whilst using photographic paper ensure that your printer settings are on photo print, or the highest quality print setting your printer can manage, as you will be surprised at what a difference this makes on photographs versus a `normal` or `fast` setting.

If you are lucky enough to have a printer that prints to the edge of the paper this is also a recommended setting to turn on.

If your not having any joy with colours on your home prints, and streaks become apparent or look a little off colour, try cleaning your printer nozzles or aligning the print head, we also recommend printing a couple of test sheets before your final certificate print to ensure that the printer is performing at its best.

We hope you have success with your print and that you achieve the best results for your gift, to soon have your certificate proudly displayed.
