    Electronic signature pad.

    Anyone know of reasonably cheap, electronic signature pad so you can add signatures to documents?

    We're supposed to be at the forefront of IT and friggin agents want me to print out pieces of paper, sign them (sometimes by 2 different people), scan them all in then return!? WTF!?


    Dont they realise plenty of people dont use PSC's anymore? Besides, the ink's friggin expensive and dries up when not used regularly!

      Yeah thanks I know, you mentioned that before. But like I said, its a bit easy for someone to copy and paste that to any number of other documents.

        Alas that is the same for any signature regardless of how its inserted into the document

          Perhaps but if it has a digital security certificate it lessens the risk a little imo.

            Choices of devices for Capturing Handwritten Signatures &amp; Software

            To get rid of paper you may cosider various options - all used in production today:

            * Signature Pads - rom various vendirs, personal suggestion prefer those with Wacom Pen Technology & Windows PC

            Mobile Devices

            a) iPad
            as used for example by insurance companies like AIA & INTER Insurance Goup (Germany)

            or b) - for better signature quality - with Pen Technology from either Wacom or n-trig inside

            * Android Smartphones (e.g. Samsung Galaxy Note 5.3)
            * Android Tablets (e.g. 8" Olivetti Graphos, 10.1" Samsung Galaxy Note from Aug 2012)
            * Windows Tablet PCs in slate or convertible mode (various vendors)

            + E-Signature Software

            There is one software which is also used in banks as the signature is not "just a dumb graphic image only" but biometric features are captured and security certification is SignDoc.

            Hope this was of some help.

              Bolshie, if you are struggling writing your name and have to resort to doing it electronically have you thought about trying something like this?

                  Not entirely sure I'm understanding requirement but could you not do all this in OneNote, included with Office? You can type in the document and sign on a blank image at foot with any Pen Tool, eg Wacom. Or you can scan in the document/paste screenshot and sign that.
