Turnaround Times & Delays

Proper Diploma Paper Weight & Size Matters!

Diploma Company uses only professional grade paper for the printing of all diplomas and certificates that we produce. This acid-free paper has a cover weight of 65 (29.484 kg) to 110 pounds (49.9 kg). We stock this paper in a variety of colors and sizes including a standard letter size 8.5×11 in (21.59×27.94 cm), 8×6 in (20.32×15.24 cm), and 11×14 in (27.94×35.56 cm). Although letter size is prefect for 80% of diplomas and certificates that we print, the variety of sizes gives us a lot of flexibility. Should you need anything smaller than 11×17 in (27.94×43.18 cm), we can cut custom sizes if requested.

Our production team makes sure that the best suited paper option is used. Typically, we put notes along with each ‘premium diploma template’ suggesting the proper paper weight, sizes and colors to ensure your specific document is as realistic looking as possible. For example most certificates should be printed with a diploma paper weight of a 24lb bond and 60lb text. The correct paper resources are chosen based upon our vast knowledge of documents. Should you second guess our opinion on resources reqired for any request, a customer agent prior to ordering for more help.

Most Popular Diploma & Certificate Paper Choices This

The majority of diplomas and certificates are printed these days with white or shades of off-whitealthough there are many exceptions to the rule. The notes we keep suggest the best paper optionfor each specific template our designers use. This ensures the proper paper color is pulled beforethe final printing and shipping of our documents.

Printing Realistic Transcripts with Finest Papers

The transcripts we produce may be novelties, but our goal is to make fake transcripts that can still shock and amaze people. That is not possible if you don’t ensure things like the best transcript paper is used. The type of paper we stock for transcripts is “security paper”. This type of paper for academic record keeping is similar to what a high school or college registrar office may when printing their own academic records. The paper is available in several colors. Just like we would when producing diplomas or certificates, our design team keeps detailed notes on what security paper type is best suited for the transcript request you want fulfilled. This ensures our clients that all important details are accounted for.

The Highlights of Better Security Paper


  •  The words “VOID” or “COPY” appear when photographed! This is common on real transcripts!
  • It’s watermarked!
  • Contains delicate security fibers!
  • Offset #60 weight; similar to our diploma paper.
  • Glowing Fibers!

Final Thoughts on Paper

We understand that although customers purchase one of our high quality diplomas or realistic transcripts for a variety of reasons, we know top-notch quality is most important! That’s because whether you want to personally replace a lost or damaged diploma, fool a friend or boost your confidence, none of that is possible with poor quality prints. We make an effort to stock only the best paper choices required to meet the demands of clients like yourself. This includes parchment and security papers of the proper sizes, weights and color shades. At this present time we stock 20+ shades of certificate paper and around 10 to 12 academic transcript papers with many more capable of being special ordered.
