Microsoft changed their certificate design

OlajuwonOlajuwon Inactive Imported Users Posts: 356
They now have a blue/white shiny, comptia quality certificate. They've been using it for months now. Why did they change the old design? I think it was ok and much better looking than the new design. The new wallet card is off the hook though. :D

    Haven't seen the new style - but I thought the old one was really cheap looking (like a template from Publisher 98?).

    The MS certificates you get for attending an official Microsoft Course are much better ....

    Anyway, hopefully I will be seeing a new style one for the 290 in a few weeks .... icon_rolleyes.gif

    If you have to reorder a welcome kit, do you get the old design or the new design? I have always wondered that about MS, and I will find out about what CompTIA does as soon as they ship my replacement A+ that I got about 4 years ago.

    You get the new design.

    I got my MCSA 2000 recently and I also requested another copy of my MCDST cert, they send both in the new design.

    So I have the old design and new design... I did like the old one better...

    You guys gave me a good idea for a topic in the General Certification forum: a Sticky with picture of the old an new certs. I don't have a scanner, but I'll try to make some good digital photos of my certs and hopefully others can send me a picture of the other certs. All pcitures of cert will be photoshopped to remove the name and add "specimen" in large, of course. From Microsoft and CompTIA I only have the old ones.

    I'd think it would be neat to see some of the old certs (A+ and MCP from back in the early 90's) just for the courious factor. Although with the new CompTIA certs and cards, I will say that they are more... interesting than the old ones.

    Just got my MCSA certificate in the mail today and I have to be honest ... my MCP and MCDST certificate look better icon_confused.gif

    I will say however that the new wallet card kicks the old cards asses though.

    I got my MCP certificate yesterday. I'm kind of disappointed actually. Looks soo empty.

    The cards are indeed nice though.
    Going to slowly study for 290. Baby due in May.

    is it possible to ask them for change?

    I changed my mind. I like the look. Looks good with a nice black frame around it.
