Frequently Asked Questions

Our fake diplomas, degrees and transcripts are designed after real looking awards issued by a number of the world’s top universities, colleges and high schools.

As long as it is understood that these are not real degrees or transcritps as issued by educational institutions, but rather novelty degrees, and are intended exclusively for entertainment use, we will let you the customer tell us where you want your degree from and what you want on it. We create diplomas and transcripts that are individually customized to fit your specific needs. If you can supply us with your name, the type of degree you are looking for, and other pertinent information, we will individually customize your awards to fit your specific criteria.

The pricing varies depending upon whether you are looking for a package deal with both a degree and transcripts, or simply a degree. It’s also based upon the type of degree you are looking for, but if you will click on the order link above you will find pricing for exactly what you need.
We have hired two graphic artists with over 35 years of combined experience to make these certificates and novelty diplomas look as authentic as we legally can. These fake diplomas are indistinguishable from actual diplomas in that we use the same paper and printing techniques used with real diplomas. Keep in mind that these documents may not look exactly like the actual degree or state certificate, but if you did not get one the traditional way, we are sure you will be pleased with our work. You be the judge, view our sample page and decide for yourself! We are sure you will agree these high quality novelty degrees are incredible looking!

We will print the information you want on your degree as long as you realize that these are novelty documents meant for entertainment purposes only and that they offer no real educational value. As well, you must me willing to take full responsibility for your creations. We will not sell documents to anyone wishing to misrepresent him or herself or their education for business, trade, profession or occupation reasons. If there is ever a reason we can not produce your order within our guidlines, you will be notified immediately with an explanation. At that time we will give you an option to make any changes to your order or have your order fully refunded.

To help make our novelty diplomas authentic looking as possible, and to protect the copy written seals of many schools, we have created our own special seals, specifically made to apply to each novelty document we sell. They vary from embossments to raised gold foil stamps (and not just some gold foil sticker or so called ‘gold ink’). Click the links to see two variations from our sample page as to what our seals look like DM008, DM001. Unlike some of the other sites, we provide all of our seals at no extra cost.
Though many of the diplomas we produce are printed with black ink, we do use a full color printing process for a number of the documents as well.
Diplomas for the most part come in three basic sizes, 10" x 8", 11" x 8.5" or 14" x 11". We offer all three of these sizes as well as have the capability to print customized sized diplomas for those schools that have unique measurements.
We use high-grade 60 lb. parchment paper for all of our diplomas. As well, for our diplomas we offer this top quality paper in several different colors and shades. The paper used for our transcripts is a document security paper, commonly referred to as 'copy proof'. When copied this copy proof paper will generally show a hidden word, such as ‘COPY’ or ‘VOID’.
If you send us a sample, we will use it to reproduce a new degree that will match as close to the original as we possibly can. However, please remember that some seals or emblems may be copyrighted and we don’t want anyone to get in trouble so we would have to modify them. As well, we will not forge signatures. We can either substitute our generic signatures, or at your request, leave the signature lines blank. (For an exact price quote and an estimated timeline, please mail us a clean, color copy, or if you wish an immediate response, you can scan the document and send a jpg image to customize@diplomamakers.com. [make sure the jpg does not exceed 2 MB]. Someone will quickly response to you with the details and instructions should you choose to proceed.)


If you will provide us with a major and a minor for your degree, we will have our staff research to find the general courses that would typically fit those specific fields of study, and then have them incorporated into your transcripts. Keep in mind, that the courses and requirements may very from school to school. As well, you will also be allowed to select the GPA of your choice. We must restate that these document though authentic looking are designed specifically for gag gifts and can not be used for any illegal purposes. See our samples page to see what your transcripts would look like.

We use high-grade cotton fiber paper as well as water mark (or non-repro) paper for a number of our certificates and transcripts.

The paper has a number of security features, including when copied this paper will generally show a hidden word such as ‘COPY’ or ‘VOID’.

When we ship you your transcripts, we will include special instructions that will explain how to get records verified through a third party, assuming you gradated from an actual school. We do not recommend using such a service with our novelty items. That said, we do understand that sometimes your parents won't take your word for it, so when we ship your order we will include special instructions that will explain how to get your records verified. What does this mean? Quite simply, with your permission, (and only with your permission) anyone can call a phone number and speak with a real live person in order to get written verification of your records. Please understand however that this service is meant for verifiable documents and our documents and our company is in no way affiliated with the verification companies, any school or agency.

For our first time buyers we realize you have other choices out there and we want your business. We know you will be so pleased and that you will recommend us to others and this is vital to our business. We have received many e-mails regarding other certificate sites that claim to be the very best, but in fact have very poor workmanship, or worse they send you nothing at all. So if you don’t choose to buy from us please try to be careful. Be particularly cautious with sites that don’t have an actual address, or provide you with a contact phone number where you can actually speak to someone. If the site you are dealing with only has a P.O. Box, then how will you find these people if you get ripped off. Also, be very careful with sites that only take cash payments, money orders or one the the third party payment system often used by auction sites. As you see, we are an established, trustworthy company that has been around for several years now accepting payment by credit card (not some company using a bait and switch, making you think we take credit cards then making you pay through a third party as some do). We have our own Visa and Mastercard merchant account. We have priced our items to be all-inclusive so that you do not have to pay more for embossing, seals or so called extras. We welcome all questions not answered on our site, so please feel free to e-mail us or give us a call. When you place an order with us, you will receive an order confirmation e-mail immediately. For this reason, please make sure to provide us with a valid e-mail address.

It depends upon what you are actually ordering. In the case where it is a simple diploma and we have everything needed on file, the production time could be as short as 3-4 days. Most degrees and transcripts are produced within a 8-12 days, sometimes sooner. The reason for the extra time, is that if the order comes with a set of transcripts, we will have to have someone research the courses that would generally go with your type of degree, and then once this information is obtain, have it integrated into your customized transcripts. Please keep in mind that delivery time can be affected by the amount of recent order we are working on, and it is always better to order in the beginning of the week.
Our normal turn around time for production is 12 days or less. If you are in a rush and need your order moved to the front of line, we do offer 2 priority rush services. The first guarantees your order to be shipped within 72 hours. The second, for those in a real rush is a 24 hours service. Your order will be produced overnight, carefully packaged and guaranteed to ship within 24 hours. Priority orders must be placed before 3 pm PST, Monday through Thursday otherwise production on the order will not start until the next following working day.
All of our orders are securely packed and shipped either by UPS, Fedex, or first class mail in an unmarked package with only your name and address and our return address listed on the outside.
Yes, we also ship by FedEx overnight. The last section of the order form, will give you options on how you want your order shipped. Please remember that Fedex does not deliver to P.O. Boxes. If you are paying for fedex shipping and have your mail delivered at a P.O. Box, we will ship by the next available option.
Yes, we can ship your order most anywhere in the world. We will have to charge you a little extra due to the cost involved with shipping, but if you need it shipped somewhere other than Canada or USA, we can do this for you. We are sorry however, but due to the large cost involved with shipping our frames, we no longer ship frames outside of North America.
Yes. Privacy is of the utmost importance to our customers and therefore to us. All of your personal information will never be divulged, rented or otherwise. When we produce an order for someone, we only keep the information on file for the time it takes to ship the product and then all information is destroyed. Credit card information (including the IP address from the computer where the item was ordered) however does remain on record by the merchant bank. This is a necessity in order to verify purchasers information and to prevent credit card fraud. This does of course include proof of shipping.

Number 1 reason is that we are a reputable company. We are not some guy with a P.O. box that you will never be able to find, selling third quality work from an ink jet printer at his table. We are an actual company licensed with the state of Nevada. You don’t have to worry about being ripped off with us. We have heard from people that sent money orders or paid through one the the third party payment system often used by auction sites, then never got what they actually order. This is never going to happen with us. Not only is every packages shipped by a tracking service, but we accept credit cards so that if we ever don’t deliver, you will have a way to dispute it. Try this with one of those other sites.

Number 2 reason is that we don't charge you every time you want something else done. Some sites not only charge you $200-$300 for their product, but they also charge you EXTRA for honors, EXTRA for seal options, EXTRA for embossing, they even charge you EXTRA for security paper. Before you know it, your order is costing you $400 or $500. At DilpolmaMakers, we will give you everything you need, for one low price. No hidden cost with us.

And finally, we are the oldest novelty diploma site on the net, and that says a lot. We only continue to stay around by offering top quality work and delivering what we promise.
