Graphic signature: what is it and how does it work?

Did you know that you can add your own graphic signature to your ValidSign account? When you digitally sign documents, your personal scribble will appear on the document. Learn more about the graphic signature and how to install it.

Graphic signature

Digital signing with your ValidSign account can be done in two ways: through the “click signature” or the “graphic signature”. The click signature is generally the most commonly used and is set by default. On the other hand, you can set up, save, and then reuse the graphic signature for each transaction.

The graphic signature corresponds to the “wet” signature; it is similar to the “scribble” of the signer you see on the signed document. The click signature only shows your name and the date of signing. Both signatures are equally legally valid, but given the similarity to the wet signature, the graphic signature is used by many rather than the click signature. The graphic signature most closely resembles the handwritten signature on paper and therefore feels more familiar.

How do you set up the graphic signature?

In your ValidSign account, you can click on your name at the top right, after which you’ll end up on the menu. Here you choose “My Account”.

Then, within “My Account”, you can choose “Signature”. This screen allows you to set your graphic signature. This is best done on a smartphone or tablet, as recreating your graphic signature is more difficult on your laptop/PC. By using your finger or a pen suitable for touchscreens, you can set up your scribble via your smartphone or tablet. You can customize the signature as often as you need.

How does the graphic signature return to the document?

When you offer a document to be signed in the ValidSign environment and you’ve dragged the signature box to the right place, you’ll see a gear at the top right of the signature box. By clicking on the gear, you can choose the graphic signature. After signing, your personal graphic signature will appear here that you have set up in advance.

Accountants get your administration completely in order with ValidSign

File formation is an essential part for many organisations. Documents are correct for your clients and, of course, for yourself. A large part of these documents contains an (or more) signature(s).

Het komt regelmatig voor dat deze documenten in de administratie ontbreken omdat deze niet ondertekend retour komen. Hoe zorg je ervoor dat deze administratie volledig én op orde is?

Insightful sign-up process

Voor organisaties is het vaak niet inzichtelijk waar een document zich in het ondertekenproces bevindt. Na het uitsturen van een document ter ondertekening ligt de actie bij de externe partij en is het wachten op een respons. Maar vaak komt die niet.
