Adding a signature to a PDF on a Mac

Very often I receive a form, either as Word or PDF that on the one hand I have to fill digitally and on the other needs my signature. And then has top be sent by email to someone.

My normal workflow was to put the stuff in, print it, add a signature, scan it and then send it.

I discovered a super useful feature in the PDF preview of Mac OS:

  1. Fill the form and if it is not a PDF create a PDF out of it.
  2. Open it with PDF preview
  3. Open Tools > Annotate > Signature > Manage Signatures
  4. Either add your signature via trackpad or take a photo of it via webcam

Now you can add that any time you want and it is saved to the pdf. So no more printing!
