Certificate Folder, Holder, Jacket

A certificate folder, also known as a certificate jacket or certificate holder, is a low-cost way to really dress up your funny awards presentation. Made of paper, they come in various colors and prices. The one pictured below is a blue certificate folder with embossed gold trim:

The brand most widely available is Southworth, who makes both jackets (folders) and holders. At least for Southworth, the difference is: 

  • certificate folder = certificate jacket and has a front and back flap (like a file folder), 
  • certificate holder typically only has a backing (mounted like a picture frame).
I prefer the certificate folder, and you can purchase a cheap certificate folder at you local office supply store or for close to one dollar each. They typically come in packs of either 5 or 10. Just go to and search for "Southworth certificate jackets". 
Certificate Holders
The certificate jacket makes the award look great even if your color printer isn't the best or you don't have good quality paper for your certificate.
