Provenance Services & Certificates

At Metro Imaging we offer a complete range of Provenance Services for certifying your artworks and editions; whether it’s digital tagging, traditional certificates of authenticity, or stamping and embossing your prints.

In the art world, provenance of an artwork is commonly expected across the industry. Artworks that have been sold and held in private or institutional collections or exhibitions, can be more easily validated if tagged by a registered provenance process. We’re here to assist you in choosing the correct option for your work. Find out more about our services below, or get in touch with your specific enquiry.

<h2>Certificate of Authenticity</h2>

A Certificate of Authenticity is a signed document proving the authenticity of the work and containing details about the artwork for the collector's reference. At Metro we offer our own Certificates of Authenticity signed by a print technician or production manager, verifying the artwork is produced at our lab and signed-off by the artist. We can also store artists own Certificates of Authenticity that have been previously signed or stamped in accordance with their edition prints. This service is available on our Bespoke Service.

<h2>Limited Editions</h2>

Metro Imaging was one of the first UK photo imaging companies to introduce a bespoke Limited Edition print service for photographers and artists. The demand for limited edition runs of prints is expanding and with that, there comes a responsibility for establishing both quality and provenance.

We work very closely with clients using our Metro Imaging Bespoke Service to produce high-quality master prints. Once these prints are produced any further run on or edition is guaranteed to be consistent with the first print.
