How to add a wet signature to a PDF

A wet signature means someone physically marking documents with a handwritten signature in ink. Logically, you can execute a PDF file by printing it, then signing it, and scanning it back in the same format. But this method is outdated, not to mention it’s time and effort consuming. Try using signNow, a GDPR, HIPAA, CCPA, SOC II, and other related laws compliant solution for eSigning. It allows you to quickly sign documents with a legally-binding eSignature that looks just like your wet one. Upload a PDF and choose the My Signature option from the left-side toolbar. There are three ways of signing forms. You can simply type your first and last name, then choose the stylized format to make it look like a handwritten signature. The second option allows you to draw ti using a mouse or touchpad. Finally, you can also upload a picture of your original wet signature to eSign your document. No matter which option you choose, it’ll be legally valid.

Can I sign closing documents remotely?

Since the new covid-19 virus began to spread, people avoid close contact and continue to close deals remotely to stay safe. You can sign your closing documents remotely, with a trusted and compliant eSignature solution like signNow.

The software allows you to virtually sign documents, send them to another party for signing, connect with an e-notary, and get them notarized online. It will help you stay socially distanced and safe, as well as save your time and money.

What qualifies as an eSignature?

According to the U.S. Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN, 2000), an electronic signature refers to any electronic data associated with a person. It uses different authentication methods to verify the signer’s identification and provide a secure process for signing documents. The examples of electronic signatures are the following:

  • a typed first and last name;
  • a drawn signature made with a mouse, finger, or a stylus;
  • an image or a scan of a person’s handwritten signature;
  • a biometric mark made on a specialized device;
  • a voice authentication or eye scanning.

In signNow, you can sign documents by typing your name, attaching an image of your signature, or drawing it. All of these methods are equally legally-binding.

What documents cannot be signed remotely?

Unlike most of the contacts, invoices, applications, and other commonly-used forms, there’s still a range of documents that are required to be signed as hard copies only. Among the documents that you must complete and sign on paper are wills, papers associated with adoption, marriage, divorce, court orders, and notices. For the rest of the documents, you can use electronic signature solutions, like signNow. Run your business from anywhere, anytime.
