Type your name and watch it become a beautiful script signature!

Type Your Signature

If you’re looking to create a digital signature without going through the hassle of using your own hand-written autograph, you’re in the right place. This free Signature Maker tool can transfer your type-written name into what looks like real writing. You can use this signature to sign off on documents, embed it on a blog, or even superimpose it over photographs to watermark them.

Don’t worry: you don’t need to give us your email or any other information. There’s nothing to download and you can create as many signatures as you like. Oh, and it’s totally free!

Signature Maker: Type your name, get a signature

The first step to using our Signature Maker is to type in your name. The only limit here is that your name can’t be more than 50 characters including spaces, punctuation, hyphens, etc. Put your name in the box that says “Type your name here.”

As you type, you’ll see our tool transfer your text into a nice-looking script typeface. You can select a different look for your signature by using the dropdown menu under the word TYPEFACE. You can also change the FONT SIZE and the COLOR.

We don’t recommend changing the BACKGROUND, however, because doing so will remove transparency for the final image. Transparency ensures your signature will look good no matter where you put it because it will let the background come through. If for some reason you don’t want this, though, feel free to change the BACKGROUND color and opacity.

Once you have a typeface looking the way you want it, it’s time to play around with it to make it look more natural. Use the SLOPE and SLANT sliders to alter your signature until you feel it’s perfect.

How to download your new digital signature

When your signature looks just like the real thing (or maybe even better), it’s time to download it. Pick a format from the three options — or download all the formats just in case:

PNG — We advise everyone to use this format. It’s small, supports transparency, and can be uploaded pretty much anywhere.

JPG — This format will not have transparency support. If you changed the background of your signature, this would be the best option.

SVG — If you don’t know what this format is, you can probably skip it. SVGs are vector-based images that require special editing software to manipulate. However, SVGs can be enlarged to any size with no loss of quality, so it’s worth it if you know how to use them.
