Sounds like something I would do. Call the FAA Monday and they can fax you a temp.

Thats good but can I apply for my Ground Certifcate with the faxed temp?
I would think so....I don't however think it would be good to show the FAA a license with writing over the laminating.
Thanks

Just sign on the laminate with a very fine felt tipped pen, and then laminate over the laminate. If the pen won't work very well, take some 600-grit sandpaper, stick some on the end of a pencil eraser, and rub the area just a little bit, then the pen should work ok.

Don't ask how I know this. :)

Temporary certificates

I don't see why not. I took my type rating ride one day and the examiner issued a temporary. I saw the same examiner the next day for my single-engine ATP. He took that temporary and issued me a new one with my ATP SEL.

If you just used the "sticky plastic sheets" style of lamination, you have a pretty good chance of partial removal without total destruction. And as others have noted, don't ask me how I know this. ;)

What Wiggums said-what's relevant is your signature being on the certificate-just sign the lamination and then re-laminate.

Done it myself-DE didn't give a.......

Thats exactly what I did it worked pretty good except the laminate bubble a little but not too bad...........However I might not have it long because I'm going for the AGI...........Well of course the question is does the AGI go on my CFII MEI cert. or do I get a whole different certifcate because it is a ground instructor?
Thanks

You are obviously not the only one around who has done this. I did it once, and did what Wiggums said and relaminated it. Worked great except it took up twice as much room in my wallet. On the bright side, it made a fantastic projectile weapon. I figured I had the heaviest/toughest CFI certificate around. Apparently, several others are walking around with these uber-certificates. If you're planning on trading it in eventually, I would do the double-laminate and not sweat it. If it's one you're gonna have for awhile, I'd do the double-laminate and order a new one that will look nicer.
