Certificates often include a gold seal to make them look official. (Blank award certificate form image by Stasys Eidiejus from Fotolia.com)

The main function of a seal is to authenticate a document. A gold seal is widely recognised as a sign that the document is official. Sometimes these certificates are printed, while other times they come as a gold blank that is then embossed with an official seal. Printing gold seal certificates is a very simple and straightforward process.
