Azami Press offers martial arts instructors several different options for the design of your traditional Japanese certificate. Besides choosing between a fully individualized certificate or a custom template, there are many other aspects of your document that can be customized, such as orientation, text language and layout, font, border design and color, and even the addition of logos and electronic seals.
Please note that the calligraphy used on these documents is not written by hand. While each document is designed manually and translations are rendered accurately, the text is printed out by machine in a style that simulates handwritten calligraphy. The quality of the documents is high, the images are sharp, and the brush-stroke calligraphy style is a simulation that is printed out on quality printers.
The goal of this service is to offer an option to those martial arts instructors who would like to issue their students something that has the aesthetics of a traditionally styled Japanese diploma but who don't have the budget to purchase a handwritten document every time a student passes a test. That is the reason behind using a simulated brush-stroke calligraphic font.
Important: All requests for documents to be issued by any person, organization, or entity other than the one placing the order must be accompanied by authorization via telephone or e-mail from the issuing party and/or organization before we are able to proceed with designs that would be issuing documents and seals in their name.
We apologize for the extra step that this entails, but please understand that this is a policy that we have in place in order to protect the integrity of our designs and that of any issuing parties.
Fully Individualized Certificate
This certificate is available for full customization of the text as indicated by the customer. Usually selected for dan level diplomas, this option is not exclusively reserved for this use. The language of the text is available in a variety of formats, which include but are not limited to the following: Japanese only, Japanese/English, Japanese/Spanish, multilingual, front only, front and reverse, etc.
This option is a great idea for the instructor who wishes to issue a 100% unique certificate to the student with a Japanese text that is tailored to the individual. Standard formats are available as recommendations; however, full accommodation is made for specific customer requests.
This certificate allows for full customization of the text only. Any addition of designs, such as seals or logos, is considered to be a level of customization that is not included with this option. Additional customization should be requested in the comments section upon checkout and will involve an additional fee.
Fully individualized certificates are intended for the personal use of the purchasing party and may not be resold in whole or in part.
Fully individualized certificate: $30.00
Although not a full customization, this template allows for customization of the school and/or organization name, the art and/or style name, and the instructor’s name and title. Text is printed in Japanese and English (or Spanish).
This is ideal for the instructor who wishes to have some level of customization within the Japanese text without giving up the convenience of being able to order in bulk. The result is a nicely balanced document that provides a certain degree of personalization while at the same time preventing the instructor from having to order a unique document for each individual student after every test.
This template allows for customization of the specified portions of the text only. Any addition of designs such as seals or logos is considered to be a level of customization that is not included with this option. Additional customization should be requested in the comments section upon checkout and will involve an additional fee.
This option is available in both printed and electronic versions. Once the initial template has been purchased, it can be used by the customer to make more copies at a local print shop, or, for your convenience, copies may be purchased directly from Azami Press.
