The Best Gift!

About the Certificates:  These keepsakes have a "vintage look" compared to some of the paper license and documents that the County or church provides. Reproduced from the 1800's & Turn-of-the 19th Century Certificates & Collections, some are charmed by time as evidenced by cracks, chips and slight discoloration. It is with great effort that these treasures are still being reproduced, as many manufacturers have deceased. Regarding the marriage certificates, in the 1800s & early 1900s, these certificates were used as the actual marriage license and certificate. Perhaps you have your great-grandparents' original! Start your own tradition. The Novelty Marriage Certificate is a perfect heirloom in remembrance of your wedding.   We hope these certificates captivate your heart!

My name is Valerie and I personalize the certificate with your personal information in matt finished India Ink for long-lasting preservation, using a Copperplate Script hand-lettering style.  These are thick-thin strokes. I have a bunch of old, old originals anywhere from 1875 to 1914 and the lettering varies on these, however, what is special about these is how unique they are in their authenticity (as they were the official document)--marriage, birth, confirmation, baptism. The special touch of Hand-Lettering remains reminiscent of days past--no machine lettering here.

I like doing hand lettering on these 'new' heirlooms as I feel it makes them more authentic and "not" computer generated. I use India Ink and this gives a texture to the can run your fingers across the letters and feel a slight raised effect. Your reproduction certificate will become a treasure to pass on to the next generation.

Some of the “old” certificates had a place for the photo of the bride and groom and even had a photo slot for the photo of the minister as a way of verifying the bonds of matrimony! The paper may be different, yet the special touch of hand-lettering remains reminiscent of days past. Order yours today!
