We’re very proud of our award selection, which spans dozens of designs and accommodates a wide array of paper colors. However, many of our visitors stop by in search of plain-Jane black and white certificate templates, and as luck would have it, we have many of them to offer.
The advantages of an award like this are many. Certificate templates designed for black ink and plain paper cost less to print. The ink is typically cheaper to come by since you’re pulling from a single cartridge and many of us have a sizable supply of white paper on hand at any given time.
Our Top Printable Black and White Awards
We’ve chosen to highlight three of our most popular awards for those looking to print on a budget. This list was prepared in the summer of 2017 and our selection continues to grow, so check back often for our latest additions.
As with all of our certificate templates, every item we’ve listed is free to customize as you see fit. Our editor runs in all modern browsers and is optimized for mobile, tablet, and desktop use.
Seeker of Knowledge
This one’s perfect for middle school and high school teachers. Its lack of embellishments makes it a great fit for older students while its clean design will demand little ink.
You Are Appreciated
“You Are Appreciated” is one of our very first awards, and as the template’s name suggests, it’s a printable certificate of appreciation. The award label itself is not editable but all other document lines are.
Unlike the other black and white certificate templates on our list, “Trailblazer” was crafted specifically for the workplace. Its default label makes it ideal for gifting to a recently promoted team member, but you can swap that out with any text you choose.
