Fine Arts Title Registry
-Capture personal commentary about each work of art: collectors will cherish it and the art’s value will be enhanced
-Certify your work was brought to life through your own creative effort; sign the Registered Certificate to use as your Certificate of Authenticity

International Registry of Artists and Artwork
The IRAA is an authority in the registration of professional artists and artwork, and as such, serves anyone interested in art - including museums, historians, commercial galleries, educators, collectors, archivists, scholars, fine art publishers, universities, curators, estate managers, students, art insurers, and of course, artists.
