Diploma Time

diplomaFebruary 01, 08 – Edit: My Free Diplomas will now be available year-round from the High School section of The diploma files are – DOC, RTF, PDF, and PDF with Typeable Fields.
To see the different choices, go to


Experimental Diploma

Now for a little experiment: An embedded font typeable pdf diploma form. If you would like to try typing on this thing, then go for it. Download it: Typeable Diploma Form Most likely you WILL be able to type on it, that is not the purpose of this experiment.

The purpose is: Will the specified fonts be present on the document when you don’t have them on your computer?

Please have a look at the image, it shows what the fonts are supposed to look like. Type in the parts of the form which, in the image, are circled in red. If, after typing, the fonts do not look like the ones in the image, then the embedding was not a success. Feel free to comment on your results. Thank you.

    very nice Donna, I guess this means i need to get us moving so I can print out one of your diploma’s for the boys :)

    The experiment was success. I made a diploma for Bubba Joe, who graduated today from the Possum Hollow School for Boys. It was a glorious thing and I thank you.

    Only seven more years until I get to make a real one.

    I found that it came out okay but that the font resized itself when I clicked on it to type my child’s name, same thing happened when I put our homeschool name and so I had a shrinking font. Otherwise it came out nice.

  5. says

    I just wanted to take the time to thank you for all of the free resources that you offer to homeschoolers. You are a real gem!

  6. says

    Well I haven’t tried the diploma file and I don’t really need to though on second thought maybe I will to say that my son has graduated from junior high. I could do the diploma and have a party for him, maybe make it a surprise.

    I’ll try the file later this week, Donna. :-)

    What a wonderful site! Thank you for putting so much effort into it and making homeschooling even more enjoyable. My son will be graduating next year . Keep up the good work

    Good Morning Donna,
    I am so blessed by your site and all the resources here. Thank you!

    Could you tell me if you have a general experimental diploma download. We have 13 students graduating from our Co-op and I thought it would be nice to use this program.

    Again thank you so much.

    Mrs V at the diploma web page, there is now a typeable PDF file for the Diploma group.

    TY, I’m sorry, I don’t know where to find something like that.

    . . .

    Thank you for trying out the experimental form. The font embedding seems to works on a IBM machines, but not on MAC and that is possibly due to font types.

    That is a nice size garden! I agree that the pictures with your children in them are much more interesting. smile

    I have the square foot gardening book. We used his method in Alaska with very good results, only we had the raised beds because of the poor soil. We used his formula for the “perfect” soil and we couldn`t have been happier with our veggies.

    I`ve never heard a hummingbird snort! Thanks for sharing that. laughing

    I just tested the form on Mac OS X using both Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional and the default program for handling PDF files, Preview 3.0.9. The fonts come through just fine if you use Adobe Acrobat to open the file but not with the program Preview. The current version of Acrobat Reader can be downloaded for free from the Adobe website. Perhaps the person who had problems before can download that program and let us know if the results are any different.

    Hi Cindy, I agree that the punctuation of the diploma is suspect. The diploma is modeled after the one I was given three decades ago and it is punctuated as shown in the one I offer. I ought to look into it further because I sincerely doubt that certificates are above punctuation rules. :D

    Unfortunately, I cannot do anything about the date space. It has to be a set size. On second thought, one fix would involve leaving the entire date line open. I will look into that too.

    Thank you, I appreciate your feedback. :)

  14. Thea says
