What do you do with your certs?

This might have been posted in another thread, but just curious what everyone does with the certificates when they come in the mail? Do you frame them, file them, hang them up at home/work?

    mine are all filed away. I can remember when I went to my first test center and there were certificates all over the walls. I thought I can't wait to have some certs like that to hang up. I never have hung them up. I may do though when I buy my own house.

    I hang one in the home office.....when I first started I framed them all, now I just frame the "biggest" one and hang it up....its not really important, just recognizes my accomplishment after all the studying and hard work. I recently considered bringing it to my desk/office space, but didnt know if it would come across the wrong way to my peers

    I used to hang them all, but now I just hang the ones I consider relevant

    I have not hung any of mine up, but was thinking about it. As of now they are filed away. I did just create my own office space on our third floor and was thinking of framing and hanging up there. Just as a reminder of all the hard work I put in to earn them.

    Used to have them in a pile waiting to get framed/hung, but that pile's been collecting dust for a while so now I have mine in document sleeves in a binder. Nice little collection of documents showing where my "spare" time for the last couple years! :D

    Mine are all filed in a plastic wallet.

    I used to have them in frames and on the wall but when the children came along I lost my spare room so filed them all away icon_cry.gif

    Haven't hung any yet. When I get the CCIE I will, or maybe I'll just get one of the plaques Cisco offers.

    i like to hold them in front of people's faces to let them read what it is, and punch them.

    actually, i just keep them in a box in the closet.

    Most I am not completely sure where they are. I do keep the wallet card of both my CCNA and Security+ on me though. Security+ just in case for the DoD compliance.
