While the certificates are easy to fill out and fairly self-explanatory, they come with instructions and ideas printed on the inside of the package. Nevertheless, here are some answers to popular questions:

Q: Where can I get them?
A: The certificates are available from:
Thames & Hudson for £12.95
Amazon.com for $19.95 US (or less) ... and other Amazon locations
I get a few more cents if you buy them directly from Thames & Hudson.

Q: My handwriting is terrible. I'm afraid to use it on the certificate.
A: Don't be! Even if you're 5 years old and just learning to write with a crayon, you should still write on the certificate. It's a piece of yourself.

Q: They're so pretty, I don't want to muck it up.
A: They're also cheap. Muck it up.

Q: Can I colour in the foil ones?
A: Yes, do whatever you like!

Q: Why are there fewer envelopes than certificates?
A: Because we figure most times you'll give them to someone in person—someone in your own house or office. Just in case you want to mail some, we included some envelopes.

Q: Why aren't they shrink wrapped? The cover of mine got a bit scuffed.
A: The author believes that shrinkwrap is unnecessary plastic that just adds to pollution in the world and she designed the envelope specifically so that it would contain the certificates without the need for shrinkwrap. The cover is just a recyclable container; it's OK if it gets scuffed.

Q: I need more of the awards and less of the other things. Is this the only pack?
A: As of this writing, the certificates were just released. If all goes well, we will be making packs of different groupings of certificates.

Q: I want to give 20 Awards of Merit to my students. Help!
A: As of this writing, the certificates were just released. If all goes well, we will be making multipacks of single certificates.
