How to customise your signature appearance in SigningHub

Overview

Placing a mark on a digital document to show that it has been signed is an important part of signing documents digitally.

Although the mark on the document is not considered to be the digital signature (the actual cryptography protecting the document is), the mark on the document will help readers to quickly see that the document has been signed. It will also help the document to be identified as signed if the document has to be printed out.

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

  • The signer must have a SigningHub account.
