What is a Certificate of Authenticity?

Once you've sold a work of art, you must include a Certificate of Authenticity inside the package to be sent to the collector who has purchased the work.


Saatchi Art will provide you with a template to use, or you're welcome to create your own. The template will be emailed to you within the same email as your shipping documents.


Certificate of Authenticity is a signed document proving the authenticity of the work and containing details about the artwork for the collector's reference. This document needs to be on the inside of your box alongside your artwork.


If creating your own Certificate of Authenticity make sure that it contains the following information:

1. Name of artwork 

2. Medium

3. Dimensions of artwork 

4. Limited Edition # of # (if this applies to your work), 

5. The DATE/MONTH/YEAR the artwork was purchased on Saatchi Art 

6. Your (the artist’s) hand-written signature
