The downloadable borders are in png format and in most of the border templates the content within the border is transparent which enables you to easily insert content into the border. Click on the cloud icon to download as a PNG image.

If you are using the border templates to create a certificate then click on “customize” and edit the text. If you don’t want a certificate border but just a plain empty border then be sure to print the empty border only. If you open the certificate and see dummy text it will print if you print as is. Click on the little x to erase the text.

And give us a choice of this kind of boarder with in each scroll work. I know the “supervisors” would like to have a vaiety of choses when awarding the employees. Thanks
