If you don’t have a stylus pen on hand, scanning your signature might be a better choice. To create a scanned digital signature, you must sign a piece of paper and scan it to create a digital version. You can then use the image as your e-signature.

It can be a bit tricky to get a clean scan of your signature. That said, with proper lighting and the right signature scanner, it’s easier than ever to get a clear image of your signature.

A scanned signature is a signature that has been created, physically, on paper, and is now being transferred to a digital one.

To create one, you'll need to put a signature down on a piece of paper and scan it in order to digitize it. Check out our full guide here to see the top ways to scan a signature.

Note that using a scanned signature on documents does not make it legally binding! You'll need to use an app such as SignHouse (or its alternatives) to be able to create secure, legal documents.
