View Full Version : Certificate of Authenticity to share?

Anybody have a good Certificate of Authenticity template that can be shared and used by other artists (me)? Thought I would ask before I created one from scratch...

I'm not sure if this is a good one or not, since I've never sold lithographs or limited edition anything, but this is the text of the one affixed to the back of a printmakers'litho (not a print of a painting) I bought quite a few years ago in the Frank Partridge Gallery in NY:
"(Name of whoever is providing the verification- substitute your name or your gallery or business name) certifies and warrants that this is an original lithograph numbered and limited to an edition of 275, created and individually signed by the artist. (Whoever is providing the verification) further verifies that each lithographic stone has been defaced after the limited edition was completed."

I use this on the back of my paintings. Got the idea from another painter.
Certificate of Authenticity
This is an original oil painting, done en plein air by artist Linda Blondheim. There are no reproductions of this painting for sale. The artist uses reproductions for promotional materials only. The artist owns the copyright on this and her other paintings. www.lindablondheim.com (http://www.lindablondheim.com)
Obviously, I don't use prints of my paintings and want my clients to know they have the only original. That is a selling point with the clientele that I market too. It would be a different certificate for those who sell reproductions or real hand pulled prints.
Hope this is helpful.

Here's the C of A that I use for my digital monoprints (one of a kind)...
Hmm. Actually that's the old version... but it gets the general idea across.
