for Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC software is required in order to sign PDFs and incorporate that signature into a file. If the information below is different from what you see, please go to the adobe.com website to download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. If you are viewing a PDF on the web, download the PDF first before you sign it. Also, make sure the rest of the PDF is completely filled out before you sign.

To sign a PDF document, you can type, draw, or insert an image of your handwritten signature. You can also add text, such as your name, company, title, or the date. When you save the document, the signature and text become part of the PDF.
