Just select pen and pad color, draw or type your signature on the empty pad, and download it. It’s as simple as that.

Yes. A handwritten or electronically created signature using a touchscreen, drawing pad, keyboard, or mouse also falls under the category of electronic signature. Please note that this online cursive and type signature is different from a digital signature, which is the most secure form of electronic signature (more on this in later sections).
No way! We don’t save your electronic signature on servers or share it with any third party. Your privacy and security is our top priority, so no compromise on that front.
Yes. These handwritten signatures and type signatures are a form of electronic signature and hence they have legal validity. As per the USA ESIGN ACT, 2000, “A signature may not be denied legal effect, validity, or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form.”
Talking about other countries, most of them hold electronic signatures legal. If you’re unsure about the laws in your country, we recommend you to confirm the same.
As per Wikipedia, a signature is a “handwritten depiction of someone’s name, nickname, or some other mark” that a person uses as identity proof. As per legal laws across the world, a signature can be made using any method, unless a specific method is prescribed.
A wet signature is created when a person marks a physical document using a pen or a seal; it could be either one’s name written in stylized/cursive format or a distinct mark on a paper in presence of witnesses. Over the years, this practice has been pretty common in the form of seals in Egyptian, Harappan, Sumerian, and other civilizations.
While digital and electronic signatures have as much validity as a wet signature, some documents like notary, wills, court orders, etc., need to be signed using a wet signature to make them fully legally binding.
An electronic signature is referred to as the process of marking one’s identity on a digitally transferred document. It could be either in the form of checking all boxes in a policy document, typing one’s name in an online form, uploading a picture of a wet signature, or using a mouse/touchscreen/writing pad to draw a signature.
Our Online Signature Maker tool produces a type of handwritten electronic signature.
Often people use the terms electronic signature and digital signature interchangeably. Well, that’s not entirely correct. A digital signature is a category of electronic signature that makes use of cryptography and algorithms to ensure integrity.
