Doing so can help you replace that high school diploma or transcript whenever you’re in a pinch. You can get a fake diploma to replace the lost one, have a copy to hang up on your wall, and so much more.

See below for an in-depth guide that you can use to answer what to do if you lose your high school diploma.

Find a Reputable Fake Diploma Creator

For those of you wondering, fake diplomas, by themselves, are not illegal. They can be used as a copy of the original to be hung in your office, used as a gag gift, or to give mom or pop a copy to hang in their house. 

If you’ve misplaced your high school diploma and can’t find it, then you might not have another choice. 

For example, some of you that lost your diploma graduated from a high school that no longer exists. So you won’t be able to call and request a new copy. 

Start by searching online for a reputable fake diploma creator. They can help you get a copy of your high school diploma, fake college diploma, or fake transcripts. That way, you can have proof of your graduation to hang up wherever you please.

Fake diplomas are also a great way to protect the original. You can keep the real diploma safely locked away in a fireproof safe, while the copy stands proud in a frame. 

When searching for a diploma creator, make sure to find one that has timely service, diploma customization features on their website, and many options for customization.

Have a Diploma to Reference

When creating a fake diploma, you’re going to need to make it as close to the original high school diploma as possible. We here at Phony Diploma have several templates and added features to do just that.

However, it’s always helpful to have a copy of the real high school diploma close by. This will help you reference the format, information to include on the diploma, dates, signatures, emblems, and so forth.

That isn’t possible to pull off if you’ve lost your original, so you’ll have to resort to other means. Try reaching out to old high school friends to see if they still have their high school diplomas anywhere and if you could borrow them for the day.

For those of you wanting to get a copy of your transcripts, you should do the same thing. See if anyone will let you borrow it so you can match the template.

Remember, it doesn’t have to be a perfect rendition. Just make sure that you get all the details right, such as spelling the name of the high school correctly, the city it’s located in, and more.
