Looking to secure the origin of your artwork? Opt for Hahnemühle's Certificates of Authenticity!

The Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity was designed for artists and photographers to protect the security and genuineness of their limited edition art works and reproductions on Hahnemühle paper, as well as to reduce the risk of forgery. Each certificate is made of premium deckle edged mould-made paper with a Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fibres. A serialized numbered hologram should be added. A second, identically numbered hologram should then be applied to the reverse side of the artwork. The combination of certificate and hologram ensures that each Certificate of Authenticity relates to one particular piece of art. Text and layout of the certificate can be created individually.
