Frequently asked questions

How do I sign a PDF without printing?
Chevron icon

If you want to skip printing, signing, and scanning a document, you can do it all using eSignature from HelloSign. Upload your document, sign it, and send it to the intended recipient. You also have the option to send your document out with a signature request if you need someone else (or several people) to sign the PDF.

How do I fill a PDF online without printing?
Chevron icon

Printing and scanning PDF forms is now a thing of the past. eSignature technology makes it fast and easy to fill out forms online, with no printing involved whatsoever. Upload the document, then drag and drop text boxes to the appropriate locations on your PDF to begin filling in your information. You can also format using date boxes and check boxes.

How should I send my eSigned PDF?
Chevron icon

Signed PDFs can be sent directly from eSignature, downloaded and attached to an email or with our fax service, HelloFax.

Can I use Preview or Word instead of an eSignature service to eSign a PDF?
Chevron icon

Using software such as Preview or Word to sign your PDF is not considered a secure method of eSigning. Even though you can paste an image of your signature from a scanned image to get a similar-looking result to an eSignature, these programs don’t provide the security protections that eSignature services such as HelloSign do.

How does HelloSign make a PDF document fillable?
Chevron icon

HelloSign makes a PDF document fillable by allowing users to drag text boxes wherever you need them. This includes signature, initials, date signed, text, and checkboxes. When it comes to making a PDF document fillable, HelloSign makes it easy to add what you want, where you want, helping you to get PDF documents completed and signed by all parties in a matter of clicks.

Does adding an electronic signature to a PDF make it legally binding?
Chevron icon

Electronic signatures from HelloSign are legally binding under the ESIGN act of 2000. By having a non-editable audit trail affixed to every eSignature request, each action is fully tracked and time-stamped. When you add an electronic signature to a PDF, rest assured that you are creating a legally binding agreement with the same legal standing as a traditional pen and paper alternative.
