How to customise your signature appearance in SigningHub

Overview

An important part of digital signing is placing a mark to show that the document is digitally signed.

The mark on the document is not the digital signature (the actual cryptography protecting the document is). The mark on the document will help readers quickly see the document is digitally signed. It also helps the document identified as signed when printed.

To improve the user experience, SigningHub allows its users to customise the look and feel of the signature that gets placed on the document during signing.

Prerequisites
