Fake Diploma Seal & Emblem FAQ
There is a lot of misinformation out there about the quality of seals being offered by some providers. While some sites will claim they can do a raised seal, the limitations in their capabilities will greatly affect the overall quality of these seals. The quality of the seals used on Diploma Company diplomas and degrees is unmatched. We will explain more about why this is the case below.
Our design staff and production facility has the necessary tools and resources to provide outstanding results when it comes to seals and emblems on diplomas and certificates. This includes fully embossed seals up to a full color pallet or seals raised in a multitude of colors and finishes. There is a reason why we proudly call ourselves a "diploma company" and. It has been an uphill battle for uphill battle for many of our competitors to catch up with us resulting in false claims about our capabilities on their website.
First off, how does Diploma Company know what seal my requested document needs?
One of the that most buyers appreciate when ordering with us, is how we cut out the nonsense in our order forms. Some sites ask the buyer too many questions, including what sort of seal they want on their final print. The way we see it, as a diploma company and expert, we should know what seal is best for you! The reality is you are looking for aand it’s our job to deliver on that.
Our order form skips this question. Once an order is placed, the staff looks over your details and requirements and then we choose an original template that's the best fit to begin the design process. Detailed notes on those templates, tell the design what seal type is recommended for the best possible results.
Does Diploma Company offer raised seals or text and how does their quality compare to other similar sites?
Most phony diploma sites create their raised seals by using a very cost effective method that is passable but limited. They first print out the seal using an everyday inkjet printer that anybody can buy. Then they sprinkle super fine embossing powder, a type of polymer available in a variety of colors, over the printed seal. After the excess is brushed over, heat is applied to the seal and as the power melts it is hardened which gives the finished seal a raised-like texture. There are two big issues with this method. For starters, anybody can pick up the supplies to do this at a local arts and crafts store. Not that we don't use this method but we wouldn't brag about it. Secondly, the power has a tendency to melt in clumps resulting in a very brittle looking seal. It gets the job done but it's far from stunning.
So what makes the raised seal method that prefers so different? Our production facility has access to a professional grade printing machine that uses an additive manufacturing process. I know that sounds complicated but made simple, the printer builds up precise layers of a seal or text creating the most precise, highest quality, seals and emblems and text that most fake diploma providers could only dream about!
There is extra time involved in this process because unique print files must be created by our staff based on your requirements. Those print files then need to be sent to the machine and run through it's paces. Depending on the complexity of the seal or text on the document, delays may vary between one to two business days.
I Know Raised Seals are not the only Method? What are the Most Common Seal Types of Diplomas & Certificates?
- Standard Printed Seals: When it comes to the bare bones of seal making, you have your printed seals. We know it sounds boring but some of the final effects you can achiave are worthwhile. It's important to know that the resolution of the printer, the quality of the inks, etc all play a huge factor. does utilize professional grade laser printers making high quality printed seals on a level you may not seen yet.
- Foil Infused Seals: This method is done by running strips of heated foil over top of a printed seal. The effect is common on some diplomas but typically you may be left with a finished seal that looks flaky. What happens is the gold foil does not always cling perfectly to the object leaving behind imperfections. These imperfections are normal and common but may shock somebody unfamiliar with the process who sees these imperfections for the first time.
- Foil Pressed. So with this you take a die cast and basically press it onto a blank foiled seal. Our staff has toyed with this method in the past by messing around with our resources (see some photos below) but this a method we tend to shy away from due to the time involved and lackluster results. What we'd likely push you towards for the best of the best are "layered printed " seals which we go into below.
- Layered Printed Seals: This is our preferred method to achieve the highest quality and it's really unique to our site. No other company is producing anything at this level currently. You can see some snapshots of what can be achieved below. Basically we're building up layers from the ground up allowing us to produce colors and textures and finishes that have been unheard of until now.
Can I See Some Examples of Layered Printed Seals, Foil Infused, Pressed, etc?
First off let's get this... Seal Gallery Disclaimer out of the way: Keep in mind that none of these photographs of seals below in this gallery were taken from actual diplomas and certificates that we've made for paying customers. We never show photos of work we've done for clients. This gallery was the result of our design team having some fun! They wanted to challenge themselves, maximizing their capabilities, and see what was possible in order to make this gallery for you. In the end, what we realized is that our high tech print tools and design experience, allow us to do some incredible things!
Any actual seals that we produce for our customers must abide by any restrictions that we have place due to regulations, etc. That being said, what we would like you for you do when looking at this gallery is to compare the examples we're showing you to actual diploma seals you've seen. I bet you can't tell the difference? Most people can not. Any well made novelty document, diploma or certificate, should be done extremely well like this if the company claims it's staff is as talented as ours. It's one thing to say this is what you do and how it's better than somebody else but to back it up in a gallery is on a different level.
Although the skill set is available with to produce the sort of quality you are going to witness, we want to make it clear that it is not easy. In order to achieve some of these results, takes added hours and devoted time to every order. If you are seriously interested in such services, you may request them when placing an order. A team designer will reach out to you at first availability to discuss your specific needs, a time frame to complete the job, and any added cost. You will have an option to opt out if it is not of interest to you. We certainly would not recommend requesting a level of print services such as these if you plan to frame your document or make a photocopy of it, as the quality is not appreciated and not worth any added cost to you.
One last thing to think about is that photos are very flat and capturing depth can be difficult. Some of the images below are a bit blurry because it was difficult finding the perfect light, best angles, etc to achieve this seal gallery. Yet we tried to focus in on specific areas to showcase the quality being presented. We hope you enjoy this and appreciate the time we took to make it.
Although there are a number of sites that sell fake diplomas these days, there is a difference between investing in a company with printing capabilities you could purchase yourself and those who use professional methods to achieve mind blowing results!
