What is a PDF file?

A Portable Document Format (pdf) file is a self-contained cross-platform document. In plain language, it is a file that will look the same on the screen and in print, regardless of what kind of computer or printer someone is using and regardless of what software package was originally used to create it. Although they contain the complete formatting of the original document, including fonts and images, PDF files are highly compressed, allowing complex information to be downloaded efficiently. Once PDF reader software is properly installed, you just need to click on a link to a PDF file and it will be loaded for viewing on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Note that the file is sent to your computer as a temporary file that will be deleted when you exit your browser. Download Adobe Reader for free.

    We love Name a Star! We purchased the Deluxe Framed Star package as a gift and it proved to be the perfect gift for our friends! After 38 years of business, and great customer service you can see why they are the “go to” business to give you an incredible gift package! And by the way, our grandsons still love the Star Projection race cars they received and on their own, tuck them right into bed with them every night!

    We named a star after my nephew who passed away at birth. It was a very emotional time and his parents were very touched by it. We can now look up at the sky and know his star is shining down on us.

    Not only did my certificate come in a matter of minutes, when I called and realized I made a clerical error (I put “my” instead of “our”), the customer service associate fixed the problem quickly and with a pleasant voice. I will order this gift again.

    We named a star in honor of my husband’s mother who recently passed away unexpectedly. The grandkids will be delighted to see this little surprise at her memorial life celebration nicely framed.
    The process was convenient, taking minutes. This was very appreciated given the time we have for her Memorial event
