How to Write A Certificate of Authenticity for Your Printmaking Products

Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my blog about printmaking.

Today I have been packaging sold prints for clients, from one of my current group exhibition's XXX+WHY at Pinnacles Gallery, Riverway Arts Centre, Townsvilles. As part of the packaging process I include my Artist Statement and a Certificate of Authenticity.

A Certificate of Authenticity is an important documentation of an original artwork. It proves that the print or artist book is original and part of a limited edition. This document is important for the purchaser and collector as it validates the purchase price, date and place. Auction houses and perspective collectors/investors appreciate this documentation when considering a purchase.

The following information is included in my Certificate of Authenticity,

Certificate of Authenticity
Studio name and address
To: The buyers name and address

Medium:
Paper:

Edition number:

To your printmaking success.
Warmly,
Jo Lankester
