One of the biggest perks of living in modern-day society is that you don't have to sign hundreds and thousands of the paper, simply make a signature and sign all the PDF files digitally using an image or signature. This will not only save the cost of signing the documents but will also help you to save a lot of time. In this article, I will tell you how to sign a PDF form in a hassle-free manner with Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor.

4 Steps for Signing a PDF Form

Step 1. Import Your Form into PDFelement

The first step to sign a PDF form is to understand the difference between the digital signature and written signatures. Stamps will let you add the photos as a signature on the PDF files while the digital signatures will let you add an encrypted signature to prevent the abuse of signatures.

After downloading and installation, you then need to run PDFelement on your computer. Then click the "Open File" button to browse and load the form from your local folder.

On the top bar of PDFelement, click on the "Comment" tab and choose "Custom Stamp" > "Create". After doing that a "Custom Stamp Form" window will appear. On the next window, click on "Select image" and choose an image that you want to add as a stamp.

After adding the stamp, click on the "Stamps" button and select the photo that you have recently added. You can also adjust the size of the stamp in PDFelement and place it anywhere on your document.

Now, select the location for this digital signature,  then add some information about you on the "Sign Document" window and click on the "Sign" button. You can either save them on your computer or in a separate file.
