Copying long birth certificate

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what the rest of you folk did when sending in a copy of your 'long' birth certificate?

Thank to good ol' British imperial sizes the 'long' certificate is somewhat longer than a sheet of A4, about 2" longer ;)

(That's 50mm to all you post-decimilisation whippersnappers)

So did you...

head off to Staples or similar and use an A3 size copier?

just copy each end and send in two parts?

copy each end, reduce, recopy and send in at a reduced size?
