What happen to these certificates? I'm holding one from a pack purchased about four months ago and a pack I purchased today and the difference in the parchment paper is unbelievable. The new ones feel like regular 20lb copy paper and resemble that once printed upon. These are written on with calligraphy using very thin water based ink, which does not bleed on normal parchment paper. Please revert back to the old paper formula. I hope this is not in efforts to greater maximize profits. What we pay for paper products is already absurd. I would have just printed a fancy border border on my white paper and used those had I known about this change in quality.

Certificate Paper and Award
This is the 3rd time that I have used this certificate paper. I like the quality and the sharp line printing of the edge details. some of the other brands have small gaps where the edge patterns meet. This certificate paper has a very good line transition from one edge to the other edge.

Quality has deteriorated significantly :(
Our company has used these Geographics Certificates (and the green ones, too) for many years and, until our last shipment arrived, we were entirely satified with every apect of the product. However Geographics has now succumbed to producing noticably poor quality certificates - obviously to cut expenses. The paper is now very thin and flimsy - it curls up so much that it can't even feed into the printer! We are abandoning this product completely and only wish they would have tried increasing prices a little before lowering quality!
