See the process step-by-step
Instead of printing, signing, and scanning, pdfDocs users can apply their signatures electronically to a single document or set of documents quickly and easily. Press play to see the process explained step-by-step.
pdfDocs users can save time and work completely paperless by adding a signature to PDFs digitally. There are two workflows available to add a digital signature: applying it as a custom stamp, or adding a digital signature certificate.
Sign using an image stamp
The first option is to apply your signature as an image to a single PDF or document set. First, take a photo of your signature so you have it as an image file. Then, go to Create a Custom Stamp in pdfDocs and upload it. You can add and use multiple signatures by selecting the Manage Custom Stamps option. Once applied, you can easily resize or move the stamp around on the page. You can apply your signature to all pages or a page range within a PDF document by right-clicking and choosing Apply to Pages.
Lastly, the most important step is to Flatten your PDF document. Using the Flatten tool in pdfDocs after you have applied a signature means that the image is locked to the page and protected.
Sign using a Digital Signature field
You can create and sign a Digital Signature field in one step when you're working with PDFs in Single Document Mode. Add a certificate from a central store, or upload it as a file. Choose what additional information you want to display in your Digital Signature field from options including date, labels, location, logo, and name. Then, press Apply and resave your PDF to finalize the process.
