ABOUT THE SERIGRAPHS

HOW ARE PRINTS SIGNED AND NUMBERED?
The traditional way is to sign and number prints at the bottom of the image on the original paper, in pencil. A pencil mark cannot be reproduced by computers, making it less vulnerable to fraud.
The signature will be on the lower right and the numbering on the left.
If there is a title – the title is in the center.
The numbering shows both the number of the print (the first number) and the total number of impressions in that particular edition (second number) 10/225
WHAT IS AN ARTIST PROOF?
Traditionally, Artist Proofs were an impression of a print taken in the printmaking process to see the current printing state. Today, an Artist Proof is a good impression of the finished work that is identical to the numbered copies. It is often inscribed with A.P.) and should not exceed 10% of the total number of the edition.
WHAT ARE EDITIONS?
AN EDITION is the total number of impressions made.
Documented evidence of provenance for art can help to establish that it has not been altered and is not a forgery. Provenance helps assign the work to a known artist, and a documented history can be of use in helping to prove ownership.
WHAT IS A CERTIFICATE OF APPRAISAL?
An appraisal is a document that accurately describes the value of your artwork.
The appraiser has to translate the appreciation for art into dollars and cents.
WHAT IS A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY?
A certificate of authenticity (COA) is commonly a seal on paper authenticating a specific art work and is made to demonstrate that the item is authentic.
COA’s are commonly used in order to provide “proof” that the signature on a signed item is genuine. COAs are mostly common in the art world.
