    Customize your PDF badges!

    CanCred Factory subscribers can now customize the look and feel of their PDF badges, right down to each individual badge! Using a combination of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and a templating language called Mustache, users can now style text and custom graphics to meet specific needs, combining static and dynamic content to make a single page certificate, a full version with all the badge metadata, or a combination of single page certificate AND the full metadata! Regardless, you can include a QR code and link that will take the viewer straight to the hosted credential for more details and verification.
