Add a Signature to a Letter

There are a few ways you can add your signature to a letter. Usually, the easiest way to include a hand-written signature is to print, sign, scan, and upload a hand-signed letter, or you can simply mail us a signed copy of your letter. We recommend this process for professors or doctors who are less familiar with computer technology.

Alternatively, you can use our digital signature feature to create and download a digital signature that you can then add to your letter before you upload it.

The instructions below explain how to use our digital signature feature to create and download a digital signature you can insert into your letters of recommendation. Once you create a digital signature, it will be saved to your Letter Writer account, so you can download it and add it to letters as needed.

 

Create a digital signature:

Access your Recommendation Requests page

Click "View Requests" on your Letter Writer account dashboard

Click "Manage Digital Signature" in the left hand navigation bar

Click "Change Signature"

Place your cursor in the box and sign with your mouse, trackpad, or other input device

Click "Save" when you are satisfied with your signature

Note that you can click "Clear" to start again as many times as necessary.
