Stamp your signature with QuickSign

The advantage of using PDF forms is the ability to receive, fill-out, and submit the form without having to deal with physical papers, and without having to send the document by post. With QuickSign you can also validate a form by adding a digital copy of your very own signature.

TIP: The QuickSign tool automatically creates a transparency from the white background of your scanned signature, making it appear realistic by showing any text or lines underneath the signature.
