    Guys anyone ordered their paper MS certs and were they anygood or is it best to buy some good paper and print them off yourself? Not bothered about the cost just the quality.

    I've purchased them, as they look alot better. I've tried a few different ways of printing (ink jet/laser and on card/stanard paper/photo paper) and while they are ok, they're not as nice :)

    Do they still give you a wallet card with the certs or just paper these days?

    No wallet card, however this many change as MS had a survey asking us about this a few weeks ago.

    It's either $9.99 or $9.95, approx £6 - £7 depending on exchange rate :)

    But that's only for the first cert, if you order more at the same time it's cheaper (I just ordered 6 and it came to about $15

    Guys just one more question do the certs come in A4 or the American sizing? I know you can choose the sizing when downloading your certs but what about when ordering them?

    Didn't see a "choose your size" when ordering, just took a look at my MS certs, and they're Letter size (US standard, I believe) and not A4.
