Is it possible to scan my signature and then insert it into documents that I need to sign?

by on December 18, 2012

Q: I dont have a scanner and often need to send a signed document by email. Once the type out the document and sign it I have to scan it so that the receipient can get a signed copy. Is there a way to add my signatory to a word document so that there is no need for scanning?

    Yes. First you’ll need to create a one time image of your signature.

    So sign your name on a blank sheet of paper and scan it to an image file, cropping off the extra white space. Once this is done save the image file to your computer, then read and follow these instructions for using Digital Signatures in Microsoft Word:

    Note that your post says both that you don’t have a scanner, and that you normally scan these files, so I’m assuming you have access to a scanner. You’ll need to scan your signature just once to set this up.
