3. Scan and upload, or mail the form
Go to this section

4. Make your purchase (if you've not already done so)
Go to this section

It is strongly recommended that you follow these instructions in the sequence provided so as not to miss any of the required steps.

1. Print out the form

To avoid forgery you MUST use this form to provide the signature(s). We will not accept other signature images or signatures that have been digitally pasted into the form.

The form requires a PDF reader to download. Most computers already have this software installed, but if you have any problems you can search for a free PDF reader online here.

The SignaTYPE Service has 1 form:

This is the only form required for providing your signature(s). You will only need one copy..

Print this form on some good quality paper.

2. Complete the form

How to Fill Out the Form

Please do not write on the form until you have read all of the instructions. You may wish to print this page out for reference as it will make it easier when you fill out the forms.

Complete the form by writing your signature(s) in the space(s) provided.

Fill out the forms using a good quality pen. Black ink provides the best results.

Write your signature at its normal size.

There are spaces for up to three signatures:

For the PLUS service, please provide a second example. Perhaps this would be a less formal version (e.g. Andrew Hunt)

For the GOLD service, please provide a third signature. This could be just your first name for a very informal document or letter (e.g. Andy)

If you are scanning the forms, please retain the originals in the event that we have problems processing them.

Do not allow your signature(s) to cross the solid lines on the form.

3. Scan and upload, or mail the form

There are two methods to return the completed form to us:

  • If you have a scanner you can scan your form and e-mail it to us (quickest service). See below for full instructions.
  • If you don't have a scanner you can mail the completed form to us at:

Quantum Enterprises,
4 The Old School House,
Lower Sea Lane,
United Kingdom

It is important to include your your e-mail address on the form to help us marry it up with your order.

How to Scan and upload the Form

Set up your scanner and scanning software in preparation for the scan.

Place the completed form in the scanner as straight as possible.

Scan the image as a gif, jpg, tif or PDF file.

Select a scanning resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch).

This is very important - setting the resolution too low or too high will not provide a satisfactory image. Font forms scanned at the correct resolution will be around 2,200 pixels or more wide, by 3,200 pixels or more high. If your form is smaller than this, you have not scanned it at the right resolution.

Use the default settings for light intensity and contrast.

Scan as a full colour image or 256 colour grey scale.

Do not scan in black and white only.

Scan the entire form.

Save the form as [Your Name].

It is important to include your name in the filename of the form and your e-mail address on the form itself to help us marry it up with your order.

Please retain your form in case there are any problems with the scan and we ask you to re-scan and re-submit.

If you have already purchased this service, please click the 'Upload Form' button below to upload your scanned form.

If you have not yet purchased this service, please see below for purchase instructions.
