I just graduated from Calmaritime and got the little red passport Merchant Mariner Credential (MMC). Really underwhelming.
I spoke with a nice lady over at the US Naval Institute about printing off a nice copy of my license. The USNI are the same folks who print the arby darby shellback certificates btw. Janis (email@example.com) was very friendly and printed out the two page license from the pdf I emailed her. She put it on nice card stock paper with bone off color bits that pretty much look like money. It looks fantastic and totally frameable.
Feel free to tell her I told you so.

She said she’s happy to print more of them for the cost of shipping only.
Just a heads up.
