Frequently asked questions

How do I make a handwritten signature online?
Chevron icon

Create a handwritten signature using HelloSign’s mobile app for iOS or Android, or utilise our in-person signing feature on iPad. Alternatively, you can manually draw your signature using a computer touchpad or mouse. You can also capture a snapshot of an existing signature on your smartphone and upload it to HelloSign, or even type a signature before customising it with our authentic handwritten fonts.

How do I convert my wet signature into an electronic signature?
Chevron icon

The term ‘wet signature’ refers to a physically written signature on a paper document. In order to convert a wet signature into an eSignature, the best way to do this as accurately as possible is to capture a snapshot of your wet signature on your smartphone and upload it to HelloSign. This can then be dragged and dropped onto any document that you wish to sign. Alternatively, you can re-write your wet signature in digital form using a touchpad or mouse. Or if you’re feeling creative, why not type your wet signature using your keypad and then customise it by choosing from a range of handwritten fonts?

Does a signature have to be handwritten?
Chevron icon

A signature doesn’t have to be handwritten to be considered legally binding. As long as the signer has added their own unique mark to a document, be it a screenshot of an existing handwritten signature, one that has been manually drawn with a touchpad or mouse, or a typed and customised one, it counts as your signature. The document must, however, contain a full audit trail to confirm that the paperwork (and your signature) hasn’t had any unauthorised alterations.

Can I create a handwritten signature online for free?
Chevron icon

HelloSign offers a free package to generate your handwritten signature online, with up to three documents allowed to be shared for signature each month. There are three paid packages offering varying different features tailored to your needs. See them all on our pricing page.

How do I add a handwritten signature to a Word document?
Chevron icon

Handwritten signatures can be added to a Word document by simply adding a signature box to the document in question using Drag & Drop, then adding your signature in the box using one of the methods described above. That’s to say, either by pasting in a screenshot of your handwritten signature, typing and then customising it or manually drawing it using your touchpad or mouse.

How do I add a handwritten signature to an email?
Chevron icon

Adding a handwritten signature to an email is a case of simply taking a screenshot of your creation and then pasting as an image into the email. An image of a handwritten signature, a typed and customised version or a manually drawn example can be copied and pasted into an email. HelloSign’s Gmail integration allows you to fill in and sign documents without ever leaving Gmail, in less than 30 seconds.
