Certificate of Authenticity cards function as a formal statement verifying a product is genuine and authentic, or to attest to the original authorship of a work of fine art.

Manufacturers of high end retail products and custom luxury items, artists, handcrafters and other esteemed makers use certificates of authenticity to demonstrate the genuine origin of their products, and to instill confidence to their clients in regards to quality and performance of the item.

Commonly produced on paper, these important documents are often damaged over time or disregarded.

Why is metal the perfect choice for your certificate of authenticity cards?

By offering a custom metal authenticity card, certificate or token of authenticity you are practicing what you preach and providing your client with a physical promise that is made with the highest quality materials, which you also seek to provide in your own products.

Anyone can print a paper authenticity card, but it shows true dedication to quality and professionalism when you hand out a bespoke, metal card with your promise of integrity literally etched into the very surface of the material. 

To inspire and motivate we have compiled an impressive list of our Top Authenticity Cards for those looking to outshine the competition:

1. Spray My Name – Stainless Steel Authenticity Cards

Stainless Steel Business Card Custom Shape

The renowned graffiti artist and designer Mr. Mars, knew that the art he spent countless hours creating deserved an equally exquisite certificate of authenticity to match. Our natural Stainless Steel Cards made the perfect choice to showcase his dedication!

With a creative entity like Mr. Mars we definitely wanted to make sure we were providing a fun and funky card to pair with his works. For a custom shape we custom cut the corners of the cards to hug their signature spray paint character logo. With the same chemical etching process, we cut through a geometric pattern along the bottom of the cards. A classic black spot color is used for the card title, mascot, and signature, while surface etching is used for the additional verbiage declaring the authenticity.

2. Copp It Like It’s Hot – Copper Finish Authenticity Cards

Fully customizable and ready for any new purchase, these authenticity cards include two white writing panels allowing Charles to hand write in the purchase date and serial number of the item. A QR code is added allowing the client to easily scan and access the registry page to officially register their item. Topping it off, a warm brown spot color is used for the text on the cards, dark enough to stand out but in a tone that meshes with the beautiful copper finish. 

Impress your buyers time and time again by providing a full experience through custom metal authenticity cards.

3. Project Perfect – Brushed Stainless Steel Authenticity Card

Selkirk Labs prides themselves in providing the highest quality Pickleball paddles on the market, with their Project 003 standing as their magnum opus. With a go big or go home mentality Selkirk decided to forgo our standard business card size for a custom 6 x 4” metal invitation size for their authenticity card. 

Each custom Stainless Steel card comes upgraded with our brushed finish to provide an additional textural element, and to help prevent pesky fingerprints. The front and back are outfitted with black and red spot colors to match their branding, and denote their product details. For an extra dab of customization, we cut in a corner creating their signature look along with a diagonal line cutout border across the bottom.

A true honor to participate in their latest project, their clients will have a true token of authenticity to treasure.

Easy to write on, our Stainless Steel Cards are the perfect slate for these hand written and hand signed authenticity cards to be presented by the owners of the company. 

6. Weiss Decision – Black Metal Authenticity Card

Over at Weiss they offer high-end watches that promise to merge timeless techniques with modern technology that are built to look good and last. Our custom Black Metal Cards follow the same principles and make the ideal choice for an authenticity card.

Using a crisp white spot color, the official identification fields clearly provide a class contrast to the black card. Using a second forest green spot color to match their brand, we applied a border around the cards. The semi-gloss of our screen-printed pigment adds a delicate, additional design element standing apart from the matte finish of the Black Metal Card.

A sleek card with blank information fields makes it easy to add individual information as needed and provides an efficient method for personalization. 

7. Crafted With Love – Brushed Brass Metal Authenticity Card

Studies show that 80% of consumers are more likely to make a shop with brands that personalize the experience. Wanting to extend that individualized touch, we were commissioned to design these authenticity cards to help feel the love. 

Our popular Brushed Brass finish stands strong as the base for this serious and sweet card. The simplistic border design adds style while letting the center of the cards do the talking. Without having to hand sign each card, we used the true signatures from the business owners and custom etched them straight into the metal.

Although you may not have the time to hand sign each card, our customization options let us do it for you while immortalizing your love and commitment to your craft in metal. 

8. Identifying Quality – Brushed Stainless Steel Authenticity Card

Jason Wilbur of Wilbur Watches is no stranger to high quality metal products! When providing a literal work of art within their watches, it only made sense to pair them with a custom authenticity card of equal magnitude.

Starting with a Stainless Steel Card, our popular brushed finish is applied in a vertical pattern, enhancing the vertical format of the cards. Using a chemical etching process the top border and brand name are cut through the cards, a process unique to metal. Additional etching is used to create an ultra-fine texture to frame out the areas for model, serial #, and build. 

  • Pro Tip: Many of our clients order their custom authenticity cards from us and work with local etchers to later apply additional customized information. 

Growing in popularity, a QR code is also applied to the bottom right hand corner of the cards making website access instant and efficient for buyers.

Using our custom shape option, we trimmed down our Stainless Steel Cards to create a more discreet tag shape, perfect for applying to their Honda Del Sols. Opting for a classic blue, we screen printed the entire surface of the card and left the raw Stainless Steel peek through to spell out the logo and additional text.
