How Do I Electronically Sign a PDF?

Howard Schulman

Lightico allows you and your customers to electrically sign documents on any device. This gives it an advantage over legacy providers, where customers can either create a signature by dragging their finger over a trackpad or sign a piece of paper and scanit.

Non-Lightico users have a much more cumbersome task ahead of them, even if they are using an eSignature. To save the signed pdf document, employees must click “file save” and select a location for the file. If the customer chooses to save their signature, they can add it to any documents they electronically sign.


  • More than 77% of respondents have used electronic signatures in the past three years, according to a survey conducted by Software Advice, a software review blog.
  • More than 80% of consumers expect businesses to provide electronic signing.
  • 55%–78.62% is the total savings of businesses migrating to e-Signature apps from paper. They have taken into account materials, administration, shipping and subscription costs, and decided that eSignatures are more economical.
