This Series 500 white, card stock diploma by Graduation Ink is an excellent alternative or replacement for Bittel diploma printing. This diploma is a slightly different size at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, but it fits the padded Graduation Ink replacement Bittel diploma covers. Whether this is a Catholic grade school, Lutheran elementary school or middle school graduation, this card stock diploma is a beautiful document that will last a lifetime.

STYLE A: Logo options include cross, cross/crown, Luther’s seal or a custom school logo. Can be black ink or metallic foil.


STYLE B: Logo options include cross, cross/crown, Luther’s seal or a custom school logo. Can be black ink or metallic foil.

About Diploma Personalization: The “Personalize-and-Print” Option

While full personalization is always available for $2.25 each, we also have a unique diploma product. “Personalize-and-Print” will reduce the impact on your graduation budget.

Personalize-and-Print by Graduation Ink

  1. We print all of the full color items on the diploma, but do not print the date or student’s name.
  2. You have the flexibility to order several years of non-personalized diploma sheets at a bulk price.
  3. We send you a WORD template that is formatted for your Bittel diploma design. After opening the template, simply place the pre-printed diploma sheets into the printer, enter the graduate’s name and date on the computer, and print the finished product.
