Smallpdf vs SignHouse: What's right for me?

That's really a good question, and we're happy that you asked it. We'd love to say that SignHouse is the go-to option for your needs, but we need to remain realistic.

Both Smallpdf and SignHouse offer free plans, electronic signing, document builders, a variety of PDF tools, unlimited docs to be signed, and more. But which one's better for you?

To answer your question, we'll have a look at a fair comparison between the two apps.

Check document progress

Smallpdf lacks a feature letting ou track the progress made on a file when sent for signing, while SignHouse lets you see many details.

When sending a document for signing using SignHouse, you can check the new progress made to the file. For instance, you can see when the file was received, opened, and signed.

This can be a really valuable feature when you want to organize your time after sending a document, since you know when signees make further progress on signing your docs.

Free contracts to start from

If you're unsure on how to start writing a contract or agreement, SignHouse has your back with the library of contract templates — something you don't get at Smallpdf.

This is perfect for when you don't want to waste any time on researching what a contract must look like, and rather go ahead and work with a magic solution.

SignHouse Contract Templates

Our contract templates work for most of the popular industries: Real estate, construction, marketing, and so on.

Templates only make it easier for the 3-step eSigning process: Get a template, customize it according to your needs, and send it to your people for signing.

In-person signing

With SignHouse, you can electronically sign documents online, as well as offline. This is yet another thing that you can't do with Smallpdf.

In case you're in the same room as your signees, it's easier to electronically sign documents on the same device rather than sending them via email and waste another 10 minutes.

Simply use the same device to add your electronic signature and your signees' to the same file and spend the rest of the time on something else, such as a more productive to-do on the list.

Better pricing

Smallpdf has a subscription-based pricing model. At SignHouse, we're doing something different than what Smallpdf and other eSignature solutions do.

We're following a lifetime deal model, under which you pay for SignHouse in one tranche (a bigger payment than usual) and enjoy all of our eSignature and PDF builder's features forever.

Our lifetime deal helps you save the time that you'd pay on a monthly basis for all of your users over at Smallpdf. SignHouse makes is so that you simply purchase once and enjoy all of the features without any limits.

Frequently asked questions

Are your electronic signatures legal?

Our signatures are 100% legally binding, as SignHouse is built around US and International Laws concerning digital signatures. SignHouse eSignatures are on par with paper signatures, from a legal point of view!

Signing papers digitally started being equal to physical, handwritten signatures in the U.S. eSignature Act of 2000 (U.S. Federal Act) + the Uniform Electronic Transaction Act (UETA). As a consequence, laws in other countries have followed suit. SignHouse is built around these laws.

Are you adding an actual eSignature or just an image?

All signatures are a real, eSignature that is 100% legally binding.

We save important, relevant data (that can be used legally in all types of situations, including in courts) such as identifiable details of a person, IP addresses, etc, just so our electronic signatures can be as valid as digital signatures can get.

What about privacy and security?

SignHouse's signatures are secure for all kinds of businesses and companies. All our signatures happen on a secure, SSL-connected domain. Documents are not made public and unique keys are generated through SignHouse so that privacy and security are at the foundation of the documents on our platform.

How do my signees get to sign with SignHouse?

We've streamlined the signing process so that your signees can sign your documents with no hurdles at all — and with the smallest amount of steps required. It can take as little as 30 seconds! 

How do you compare to ______?

We have a generous free plan, so we highly encourage you to make the comparison yourself! It costs you nothing - and no hard feelings if you don't want to go with us.
