Certificate of Authenticity

An all new premium certificate of authenticity on the luxurious Crane's Crest 100% cotton paper (362gsm) with intricate gold foiling, clear foiling and holofoil unigram are now included with all high-end original artworks. Available in two tiers, Gold ($2k-$4k) and Platinum ($5k-$6.5k).

This certificate was a massive project to undertake over a 9 month period. Since my experience with vector (the format needed for print) is rather limited, I got involved with a designer and friend, Genevieve who helped with the conversion and figuring out numerous challenges to help make my vision a reality.

The design went through countless revisions, fine-tuning every single element of its design to the tiniest of details and testing the limits of what the South African based printers (Multiprint Litho) and the foilers (Murtan) were capable of. This included holding many meetings with them to discuss overcoming what they believed was not possible when I knew it was.

I wanted this certificate to be of the highest quality possible and that included choosing the right card stock. How the certificate feels when you hold it is very important to me as part of doing the certificate full justice. After testing many different card stocks, I finally chose to go for the highest quality available in South Africa - Crane’s Crest 100% cotton paper. This paper was capable of everything I needed and wanted - from the beautiful quality achieved by the litho printers, being able to handle the clear and gold foiling perfectly and how you can just feel the exceptional quality in your hands.

In the end I am very proud of the results from the team I got involved with to make this a reality for you. I am also very blessed to have the financial support of my fans to be able to make this possible (it cost an absolute fortune). Without you, I could not push into the unknown reaches of what I am capable of, so a massive thank you to each one of you.

I wish you all much passion and curiosity on your journey.

Much love,
