A certificate of authenticity is a document necessary for the attribution of a work of painting, sculpture, photography to an artist. It must include the title of the work, the date of its creation, the name of the artist and various elements specific to the artistic discipline (support, dimensions, number of copies made, materials, photo of the work, etc.).
As the profession of art expert is not regulated, all artists and professionals can write a certificate of authenticity themselves. Artcertificate considers that the author of the work is the most competent person to establish a certificate of authenticity.
When selling one of your works, you must provide a certificate of authenticity to the buyer (even if he does not claim it) accompanied by the duly completed sales invoice.

Have you thought about the traceability of the artwork, to integrate a Qrcode, to stick seals and to protect against counterfeiting?
