User Guide

Thank you for being an early user of Origen!

This user guide is for collectors who are adding work that was tagged by Origen.

If your work was tagged by a gallery, please follow the gallery’s instructions.

After receiving your Origen tags, the next steps are easy:

  • Place the Origen tag on the bottom center of the back of the corresponding artwork

  • Visit and click Sign In / Sign Up with Pin #

  • Enter the Pin # for the corresponding work

  •  Next, you will be asked to scan the Origen tag using the app

  • Once you have set up your account, you can add additional works (My Collection –> Add New Artwork) by scanning the tags and entering the Pin #s


  • You can also set reset details for each work in your collection (e.g., whether you would like to accept offers now or later).

Some best practices

  • The Origen tags are very sensitive and can be both read and written to from 4 inches away. Therefore, please be sure to scan only one tag at a time. We recommend placing the tag on the corresponding work before scanning.

  • Because we use your zip code to calculate art shipping, please be sure to update the location of the work if it changes.

  • If you deaccession a work that is in your Origen collection, please let us know right away.
