Every couple of years some “service” comes along which offers to sell you an acre of the Moon, or to name a star after your girlfriend—whatever. These companies promise to record your “purchase” with some prestigious-sounding organization somewhere. We’ve seen the prices range from about $75 to over $500. We always wondered why folks fell for this, because there is not, and won’t be in your or our lifetimes, any agency which has exclusive or meaningful control over who names what after whom on the bottom of the ocean. Ten companies can charge to name the same star after ten different people—and none of it is “real”. So we thought, what the heck; all these people are really getting for their $75-$500 is a cheesy certificate which isn’t enforced or even recognized by any “real” agency anywhere. We decided to bypass the B.S. and offer a much nicer certificate, with a wider range of choices, for $16.95. This “Deed” isn’t recorded in any official office. And if you ever travel to the bottom of the Mariana Trench (unlikely) you will NOT have the authority to kick some party-hardy sea-slug off “your” property. This is a gag gift, a novelty, a stocking-stuffer—every bit as “genuine” as the one your cousin back in New Jersey bought for $250.

This has got to be the cheesiest thing I have ever seen in my life, but I can't deny it's pretty sweet too. So little story here, my parents were never married and never believed in "holy matrimony" but they've been together for 20 years now so I was thinking of something I could give them for their "anniversary" and they really loved it, they never had any official cert but this one definitely won their hearts! <3 <3
My bf and I are celebrating our 3rd month together, so I thought of something that is sort of unique and sweet at the same time. The certificates came really fast, they delivered the next day which is great. I really loved the embossed stamp, it looks and feels realistic ;)
