How Authentify Select can accelerate your gallery

Designed to build trust

Authentify Art's products are the foundation for a revolution in art technology.


Add a digital watermark to artwork with a
SecureID Tag

An immutable and secure proximity chip embedded in an attractive foil sheath is attached to the back of an art piece using a conservationist-approved adhesive. Each tag receives a permanent unique identifier that stays with it for its lifetime.

Modern smartphones can instantly detect each piece's unique identity - whether on a gallery wall, in storage, or in a collection.

  • Give each piece a universally-unique ID that can be used for its entire lifespan, allowing future owners the confidence of knowing that each piece can be traced or identified.
  • Easily identify each piece during shipping, in storage, or while on display at art fairs or shows … with any smartphone and without physical contact
  • Post-sale, allow art pieces to be traced back to your gallery, enhancing your trusted reputation for years after they leave your shop

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I install the tag myself?

    While self-installation is possible, Authentify recommends an authorized art handler install each tag. We offer installation services as well as detailed certification for professionals.

  • How is a tag attached?

    SecureID Tags are usually attached to the reverse side of a painting on the canvas stretcher using a conservator-approved BEVA adhesive.

  • What happens if someone removes the tag?

    Each tag is designed to fail if removed. A connected Dossier would indicate a missing or damaged tag and alert the owner.

  • How long does a tag last?

    Tags have no power requirements and are designed to last for decades. As technology changes, backwards-compatible readers should always be available.

Preserve the paper trail of each piece with a
Digital Dossier

Data for each piece is now centralized and stored securely in an online digital repository: legal documents, provenance, reference literature, past certificates of authenticity, sales records, loss registry, AIS certification and other relevant material.

Now you have an immutable audit trail that can be easily shared during the purchase process and transferred to a buyer with a click.

  • Pre-sale, improve buyer confidence by easily sharing  condition reports, catalogues raisonné, or previous sale receipts
  • Give sophisticated buyers ways to confirm each piece’s authenticity, without the need for third party evaluation
  • Stand out from the crowd as the “trusted place to buy art”

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is Dossier information created?

    Our online platform allows owners and authorized associates to add a wide array of descriptive information, documents, and files to the dossier for each piece. Our qualified curation staff can assist.

  • What happens to Dossiers when pieces are sold?

    When ownership of a piece changes hands, the seller authorizes the transfer of associated data and documentation to the new owner.


Tell the story of each piece with an
Interactive Object Label

Trigger a rich experience for viewers and potential buyers and let it tell each piece's story. Video, photos, high-resolution scans and imagery, documents, related works - even artist reflections or aficionado testimonials.

Now viewers can fall in love with a piece before even speaking to an associate.

  • Turn curious footfall into buyers, help beginning art
    appreciators learn compelling information, and help
    enhance the knowledge of experienced art aficionados
  • Give potential buyers a discreet way to understand pricing and empower your sales staff with easy to use, scalable tools
  • Appeal to younger, tech-savvy buyers and grow your clientele

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's the difference between this and a QR code?

    Simplicity. QR codes often require specialized applications or extra steps to access. The chip embedded in a Label means that modern smartphones simply require a wave over the tag.

  • Can I customize the look of my Labels?

    Absolutely. Authentify Art offers a variety of options to choose from that can include custom logos or typefaces.
