In March 2012, the new administration team decided to give students certificates each year. At that time, none of us had experience in making certificates.
On April 1, Tina spent a few hours doing research on the certificate paper and relates at the local OfficeMax and Best Buy. A few days later, she bought 105 pieces of certificate paper and stickers.
With the certificate paper, Bin started figuring out how to make and print certificates. Two days later, he mastered a technique to print a mass of certificates populated by the data retrieved from a registration database.
Jing and the team selected a certificate template. On April 15, the first certificate was printed successfully, and shown to all teachers.
Everything was good. Bin opened a certificate factory in his basement. The assembly line conducted the following activities:
1) To load certificate paper to printer
2) To send certificate PDF from computer to printer
3) To retrieve the printed certificates and do quality assurance (some certificates were reprinted)
4) To package certificates into big yellow envelops by class
After three nights, a full cartridge of ink was used up, and 95 certificates were ready to ship!
How beautiful the certificates are! I would like to issue a copy to the factory as well …
P.S. Great team work!
