Soft Copy Signature and Stamp – Frequently Asked Questions

How do I create a soft copy signature?

You can create a soft copy signature by scanning your hardcopy signature and saving it in a PNG image format. You can then insert it anywhere on your PDF documents, using PDF Multitool. The hardcopy signature must be on a white background.

How do you make a soft copy of a stamp?

You can make a soft copy of a stamp by scanning a stamp’s image. To do that, stamp on white blank paper, then scan that image into a PNG format. Use a PNG format instead of JPEG, to get a clear non-compressed image of your stamp.

With a stamped image, quality is more important than size. That’s why it’s important to avoid using compressed image formats. Alternatively, you may also use TIFF image formats.

How Do I Digital Stamp a PDF?

You can digitally stamp a PDF using our PDF Multitool. However, you still need to create the digital stamp image first, before you can add it. There are two ways to go about it. One you can scan your stamp against a white background, and save the scanned stamp as a PNG image.

The second option is to use vector graphics software to create a digital stamp. You can then export it as a PNG image, which you can add to your PDFs using the PDF Multitool. You can also save your Stamp in TIFF format if you want to encode additional data.
