Mea Did you not sell one already?  Or were they all gift.   Still you can put a certificat with gift.

Yes, Danielle, I did sell one drawing - a commissioned piece.

Guess I never thought to it it.  I do put the number, type of media, year, and my signature on the back of each piece, though.

What would a Certificate for Giglee print on canvas look like?
Thanks Annie

Annie, to make that an original you would either need to add a few brush stroke or at least sign the print in order to add a certificate of authenticity to it.

The certificate would then certify it as "official print signed by the  artist" or "official print completed in paint by the  artist"

Okay, thank you Nolan.
I had never heard that copy/Giglee came with any certificates, so I was puzzled.  On the contrary, I though they would simply come with a statement that they were a copy of an original painting and not the original.
