Highlight the main header of the certificate and fill all other text fields on the certificate. Click “Insert” to insert custom graphics, such as a logo or a picture. Change the layout by clicking “Page Layout,” and then click “Page Color” to choose a background color. Ensure the certificate is what you want and save it on your computer.
