Get your documents signed with a Signature Generator

by PDFBear

Are you looking forward to signing your documents with a signature generator? Then, look no further as I’ll show how you can use the free tool by PDFBear to sign your docs in no time.

What’s Signature Generator

A signature generator lets you sign documents by generating your signature via entering credentials or drawing.

If you don’t have the digital file of your original signature, you can use the sign generator tool to create a sign for yourself. And then use it to sign your documents.

Whether you are a CEO of a company or an applicant to a university, a signature generator lets you create multiple signatures. Also, you can use it to draw your signature using your cursor or touch explicitly. And once you are done, you can add the digital signature to your PDF.

Why Sign Documents With a Sign Generator

You can’t always have access to the digital file of your signature and initials. That’s where a sign generator comes in. It lets you easily create a signature either by entering your name & initials or drawing.

You don’t have to digitize your hand-written signature; you can quickly draw or create one from scratch using the sign generator. Also, the tool lets you attach it to your soft document in a snap.

For instance, you are on a trip. Suddenly, your manager sends you an important file that you have to sign. With a reliable sign generator at your disposal, you can draw your sign or create one with custom font & color. And then add it to the document with ease.
