In some instances, a bank may require a signature instead of the computer generated signatures we create for our checks.
By sending us your signature, we can create an image that will be accepted!
Below are the guidelines to adhere to when prepping your image so that the signature can best be extracted and processed.
The image must be in either a JPEG or PNG format (.jpg, .jpeg, .png).
The image must be exactly
660px wide x 210px tall. for best results.
COLOR AND SIZE
The signature must be written in black or dark ink on a white or light background. The signature should be centered and should occupy most of the image.
THINGS TO AVOID
Here are a few of the most common mistakes that we recommend you avoid when preparing a signature image.
DON'T: HAVE THE SIGNATURE BE TOO SMALL IN YOUR UPLOADED IMAGE
Make sure to center your signature and crop your image as needed so that the signature takes up a majority of the space.
DON'T: WRITE YOUR SIGNATURE ON RULED OR PATTERNED PAPER
Write your signature on a white or light colored background to ensure proper signature processing. Using ruled or patterned paper will likely result in unintended artifacts.
DON'T: INCLUDE OTHER OBJECTS OR ARTIFACTS IN YOUR IMAGE OTHER THAN THE SIGNATURE
If you are taking a photo of your signature rather than using a scanned image, make sure to prepare your photo so that all artifacts and non-signature objects (e.g. tables, pens, dark shadows, etc...) are cropped out.
Once you have created the image you can send it to us via firstname.lastname@example.org
