How to add a signature

Whenever you sign a contract, this signature will be used.

There are 3 options to add a signature:

    1. Upload Signature: Use an existing PNG image of your handwritten signature for a personalized touch.
    2. Text Signature: Type your full name and let the platform create a professional-looking digital signature for you.
    3. Draw Signature: Unleash your inner artist and draw your signature directly on the platform using your mouse.

    Note: When you log in for the first time, you will be asked to create a signature, you can change it later if needed. The insertion of the first signature cannot be bypassed.

    Behind the Signature:
    Think of your signature as your unique fingerprint in the digital world. While the visible signature adds a professional touch, its true power lies behind the scenes. Each signature comes with a unique security code linked to your profile. When you sign a document, this code merges with the document’s own code, creating an unbreakable fingerprint. This ensures that even if someone copies your visible signature, the document itself will always know it’s you who signed it. Rest assured, your contracts are safe and secure with Contractuo!
