Fellow Muggles will definitely wish they had the design and print powers shown on these Harry Potter Certificates of Authenticity.
The wizardry begins with the 65 lb. Skytone New White Cover. It’s a great choice. The texture of the paper creates the foundation for that “parchment” look and feel you’d expect to see in this kind of document.
Then the sorcerer’s wand really gets going: a background color complete with a hint of smudged fingerprints that suggests an aging process, a richly embossed border created from lovely swirls and dingbats, and old-world illustrations along with the famous Harry Potter logo that add the illusion of depth.
The magic for me though is the embossed red and clear foil stamp that replicates a wax-pressed stamp. It looks so real!
Both litho and digital print processes are used on this project. A perfect combination considering each certificate has its own unique authentication number. Any Hogwarts student would be proud of this project.
