The card/sticker undergoes a preliminary check and, if it's declared genuine, it gets encapsulated, for protection, in an anti-tampering plastic polycarbonate case with its authenticity certificate without a grade. Since we're talking about a simple authentication, the card will not get a grade but an A as "Authentic".

Authentication with signature

The procedure for authenticating a card or a sticker can also be performed on signed cards by checking the optional "Signature Authentication + 12€" while entering your order. The card goes under the same procedure as a regular Authentication service but an additional handwriting analysis is performed as well.

graad standard signature certification and authentication service

Our team will authenticate both the card and the signature. If both (card and signature) turn out to be authentic, the card/sticker will be encapsulated as AS (Authentic Signature) and the author of the signature and the SGNT (Signature) code will appear at the bottom left of the certificate.

If we come by a fake signature, but the card is certificated as authentic, it will be encapsulated with the acronym AA (Altered-Authentic) as explained in the preliminary check paragraph. 
Fake cards, as always, will be returned to the sender without being encapsulated.

The things we adapted to the market for

We adapted to the market standards regarding

  • the ultrasound micro-welded anti-tampering plastic polycarbonate case
  • the use of a unique numerical code useful to consult the digital certificate
  • the anti-counterfeit holographic stamp

What we improved

Our flat rate price

We do not ask for additional fees depending on the value of the card you intend to certificate.  We do not believe that "taxing" the collector in relation to the value of their card is fair.

The procedure

Compared to other grading companies, we have also improved the optical verification procedure based on the analysis of the card with a magnifying glass. You can learn more about the grading process here:

The aesthetics

We also focused on improving the aesthetics of the graded card, creating a well-refined label that enanches the beauty of the card itself. You can read more about the structure and the aesthetic of our certificates here:

The QR code on the back

As a convenient alternative to the use of the eight-digit numeric code we introduced a practical QR-code on the back of the certificate that accompanies the card. By scanning with a smartphone, you get access directly to the digital certificate's page, exactly as if you entered the code in the verification field.

Certifiable cards

Thanks to the twenty-year long experience of our team in the collectible card world, we are able to certify any card, from any brand, in any language. Please take a look at our "Certifiable Cards" page to see the few exceptions we cannot certify.
