How to increase the image size of a digital signature

Jan 20, 2011 2:02 PM

No matter how large large I sign a piece of paper or how large a graphic file I use, or the format I save it as (PNG, PDF, JPG), when I go to actually place my signature in a signature box, the resulting image is tiny, as well as not terribly bold.  One, how do I increase the size of how my scanned signature appears?  And two, how do I make it appear more bold?  Thank you for your help.

    Rescan it at higher resolution after resigning it with a heavier pen.


    There are electronic ways to bolden the old one but it may end up looking false.  Sign fairly large and scan at 600dpi, save as .psd and .jpg for various purposes or methods of creating your PDF and choose the one that works best. If you are using Word or similar app, then maybe try a .png also.

    Try cropping the image (or PDF page) to just the limits of the signature.
