Get an online signature in PDF or Word

You can make an online signature by either drawing it by touch or mouse, typing with a keyboard or using an existing image. Legalesign provides these methods as part of its online signing software.

Sometimes the person who sends a document through Legalesign will limit the ways that the signature can be made. Some senders may restrict signers to only used a typed signature.

Legalesign provides the signatures and legal basis for signing a contract online. If you are making your own signature, and need it to be part of a valid legal document, then you should check how your signature fits with the broader context of the document itself and the signing event. The European Regulations (eIDAS) provide a standard for electronic signatures in a legal context. Read more about electronic signature law here.

On Legalesign, if you have been sent a form or PDF and want to complete and sign it yourself then, once you have signed up (see the free trial), select the option to "Sign & Return", in the top right-hand corner. You upload a document, sign it online and then download it or email it to someone else.
