Heirloom Birth Certificates

Celebrate the birth of a baby or a special birthday of a loved one by purchasing one of Ohio’s heirloom birth certificates. All certificates are printed on 8.5 by 11 inch high quality paper with a raised seal, which allows them to be used for official business in addition to display.

There are four designs to choose from, including the Native Ohioan design, which honors the birth of a Buckeye with traditional scarlet colors. The Commemorative design features Ohio achievements including Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon. You can also request a Newborn Footprints certificate, which offers space for you to capture a precious stamp of your child’s feet. For a more traditional design, choose the Statehouse Lawn scenic format.
