How to Design a Custom Diploma Cover

Diploma covers protect your graduate’s precious diploma inside a folding leather book. Typically, these covers are designed with the high school or university’s official seal on the outside, and the seal is stamped in foil.

Why Should I Get Custom Diploma Covers?

First, custom covers elevate your institution’s brand in the eyes of graduates and family members. A stamped gold seal has more weight than a blank diploma cover, and it doesn’t cost significantly more. Furthermore, every aspect of the cover can be customized, from the corner ribbons to the interior moire. After all their hard work, students deserve to house their diploma in a prestigious cover that honors their achievement.
