Customized certificates | Variable data printing

by Vervante •

Give your customers and clients the recognition they deserve with certificates they’ll be proud to show off. Great for everything from course certifications to the successful completion of coaching or training programs, custom-designed certificates are a great way to add value and increase satisfaction with visible reminders of good work and great accomplishments.

Certificates can be printed any size, in full color, and feature any design or message. We also can use variable data printing* to customize each certificate with individual information such as names, program titles or descriptions, and completion dates.

We can print and ship certificates directly to you, include them in shipments as part of other products you provide, or individually print and ship to your customers. We are also able to package certificates in attractive folders or place them in frames before shipping as well.

Here are some ways Vervante customers are using certificates:

  • Course completion or accreditation
  • Endorsements
  • Sponsor recognition
  • Training completion
  • Awards
  • Achievements
  • Milestones
  • Special offers

*Variable Data Printing

Variable data printing, a form of printing in which elements such as names, titles, dates, or images can be changed from one piece to the next, is an incredibly powerful way to individualize products and connect with your audience.

Variable data printing eliminates the need for massive print runs and makes it more economical to print truly individualized products.

Here at Vervante, we offer variable data services for digital on-demand printing, Variable data printing makes it look like each product has been expressly designed and printed for a single person.

Looking for ideas of how you can use variable data printing? Try these:

  • Offer a membership package that includes a personalized letter or a membership card.
  • A monthly newsletter personalized with the customer's name.
  • A personalized letter that accompanies a coaching product.
  • A learning course that includes unique access information for the user.
  • Postcards or mailers that creatively feature the recipient's first or last name
  • Announcements and invitations that recognize the readers' loyalty by calling them by name and mentioning previous products or programs they invested in.
  • Personalized thank you cards, tickets, bookmarks, journals, etc.

If you’re interested in creating and offering certificates, we can help. Email sales@vervante.com for free quotes or with questions and we'll help you get started.


Author Spotlight: Rhonda Hull

by Vervante •

We're constantly amazed by the clever, unique, brilliant and beautiful books and products our customers create. Today we’d like to introduce you to Rhonda Hull, Ph.D., a seasoned author, artist, speaker and guide. Through the conscious use of the energy found in words+art+collaboration, Rhonda is a powerful advocate of whole-hearted living and to support her message she has created a series of Keepsake Treasures products that are easy to share, easy to carry, and always stay in your heart. 

The story of Rhonda's Keepsake Treasures

Q: What inspired you to create these products?

I have long been some form of teacher, mentor and guide, but neglected to see my lettering and calligraphy as a worthwhile part of who I am and what I offer. 

Walking the path of cancer with my barely 2-year-old grand-nephew (now 14), followed by becoming actively involved in the ongoing journey of my grandson when diagnosed with autism at age 3 (now 13), and then facing my own health challenges as a result of the stress of it all, I learned the power and importance of self-care, and in having a circle of ones who you love and who love you unconditionally. I learned that the things we think are so important become less so, and that love really is the answer to every question. Every moment can be a keepsake moment, even the messy ones. 

I knew it was time to bring my art forward as a way to touch hearts and make a difference. The importance of savoring even the bittersweet moments is what I attempt to reflect in my products, dedicated to uplift and offer encouragement to those maneuvering the meaningful and messy moments of life.

Q: What advice would you give other aspiring authors or creatives?

Dare to believe it’s possible. Take at least one step beyond your comfort zone. Dream not only outside the box, but as if there is no box. Get clear on the people you want to serve. 

It was amazing to me how by daring to hope, and ask, and take risks, and believe it was somehow possible, be willing explore pooling the talents of other creatives, and then leaning on the guidance and experience of Vervante, even more than I could imagine became possible. As a result, I found the courage to set my creativity free!

Q: What do you love about the Keepsake Treasures products?

They are filled with colorful energy captured in a variety of forms that expand my ability to touch hearts!

A long time ago I took on the belief that I could never succeed as an artist. Vervante offered me the framework through which I could see beyond that limiting belief. Using words+art+collaboration transformed into variety of product formats, I was easily able to expand my product line and began to see the value in using my creative inklings to make a difference - and an income!

About Keepsake Treasures

The trickiest journey of a lifetime is only 16 inches, the adventure from your head to your heart.

“But, where do I start,” you may wonder, and, “how is it possible for me to feel so easily overwhelmed, so little meaning, and all alone in a world where I am elbow-to-elbow with over 7 billion people?”

In a world of too much ‘stuff’ and too little time, we can loose sight of the essential things that matter most; the things that keep us connected to our own heart and to the people we love, confident that every moment matters, despite our circumstances.

Combining art+words+collaboration, the keepsake products at Rhonda's website, are infused with love and designed to keep us ever-aware that every moment is full of miracles, even the messy ones.

Whether something simple that offers acknowledgement to someone you love (My Little Red Book), uplifting comments and profound questions to help you maneuver through tough times (Healing Heart Cards), or daily encouragement to focus on the power of presence and possibilities (Yes, And the Adventure Continues Playbook/Any-Time Day Timer), these products are an invitation for us all to make every moment a keepsake moment.

Thanks to words, wisdom, and collaborative art skillfully brought to life through the craftsmanship of Vervante Press, RhondaHull.com offers a life-line of creative energy, and heartfelt encouragement on your adventure from your head to your heart. Come dare to make every moment a keepsake moment!
