How to Create and Insert Your Signature in Google Docs

Signing digital documents is the order of the day in various places. Sending the documents by mail, signing them, and sending them again is a complicated task for many. In this article, we tell you how to create a signature and use it in Google Docs.

Insert your signature in Google Docs

For many, stamping a signature physically on a document is the simplest thing, but things get complicated when you need to send the document by email. Most people print or scan to digitize and send. There are simpler ways to carry out this process without wasting paper or time.

Thanks to Google tools, you can sign documents directly on your device. One option is using the built-in drawing tool in Google Docs. It is quite a useful alternative to professional drawing tools. Although this does not have all the advantages of the previous ones, it can serve perfectly for this task.

Using the Google drawing tool to create your digital signature

  • Using it is very simple. Open the document you need to sign on Google Docs through your browser.
  • Place the cursor at the exact point where we have to include your signature,
  • In the toolbar at the top of the window, click on “Insert,Insert a signature in Google Docs
  • Among the available options, select “Drawing,
  • And lastly, choose “New ”
  • When doing so, a new floating window appears where you can draw your signature. On the one hand, you have the option to draw your rubric. Select the line tool from the bar and display the rest of the options.
  • At the bottom, you will find a “raised hand.” This allows you to use the mouse to scribble your signature. You must know that it is not very precise, but you will achieve something similar. You can also include your name and surname using the text tool and thus complete the signature.
  • You can try as many times as necessary, using the undo button, to start over.
  • Once you have the desired result, click “save and close” in the upper corner of the window.

This way, the result appears where you placed the pointer previously. In addition to creating the signature, you can insert a new one, replace it, and go back to edit it. Google Docs also allows you to insert items from an Excel file or PDF sheet.

Here is a simple video guide of how to go about the process:

Resizing your signature

Although when placing it in the document, it appears in the exact size as it was drawn, you can resize it to change its size. Do this by selecting the drawing and using the bounding box handles to drag it to the desired size. To edit or change the image of the signature, select the bounding box again and click on the “edit” option,

This way, you return to the editing box. If you are happy with the result, you can save it for future occasions and not have to repeat the process. From the signature editing box, click on “ actions ” to display the options. Among those available, select “ download,” choose the PNG, JPG, PDF, or SVG format and complete the process by choosing the location where it will be saved until you need to use it again.
