To make the printable certificates properly useful, add the related award text captions onto the certificates. And customize it with suitable elements such as background, clipart, etc.

Set a Suitable Background

Publisher Plus provides you three normal ways to set the background: Color, Pattern and Image. Clicking Background toolbar, you will see the three handy options. Under the Color tab, you can fill the background with certain colors in Solid, Gradient, and Advanced Gradient ways. I love the Advanced Gradient option since it looks excellently cool as you can imagine. You can easily click on the color bar to add a certain color while easily delete a color by simply dragging and dropping it off the bar.

Set a certificate background

Besides Color background, Publisher Plus for Mac allows you to set a preset pattern as background. Here are hundreds of preset patterns. Just browse them and select your favorite one to set it as background. In addition, you can upload your own image as background as well.
