Computers were made to replace handwriting with a faster, more accurate method of writing– they keyboard. Unfortunately, the keyboard isn’t a good way to apply your signature to a document. This app is.
It’s been awhile since I had to fax a document to anyone. Faxing a document with a signature at the end is a piece of cake, and I suppose legal enough to stand up in court.
What about digital documents that require a signature? PDFs that need to be emailed to multiple recipients, each requiring at least some facsimile of a signature for approval?
Scanning a signature and dropping it into a document requires plenty of steps. Signature Maker is the Mac app that makes quick work of digitizing your signature.
Use Signature Maker to create your own digital signature using the Mac’s mouse or trackpad (or, a drawing pad to more accurately simulate your unique signature).
It takes a few minutes of practice, but once your signature looks good on the screen, the possibilities and usefulness open up.
Signature Maker gives you a few extra tools, too, including a customized background, line style and weight, and color.
Your signature can be saved as a PNG file with a transparent background and easily dropped into documents.
The app’s developer says using Signature Maker is as simple as drawing and sketching on a piece of paper.
Not quite. Simple is not always easy.
The most difficult option is creating the signature. I tried using the mouse and admit failure. Translating mouse movements into a signature is a challenge.
The trackpad works, though it took a few extra tries to get the digital signature to resemble my actual signature. After that, you have a saved digital signature which is easily dropped into any document.
