I'm working on a print piece where I want a signature at the bottom of the page to look like it was really signed by hand. What can I do to mimic a real pen writing on paper? Thx!
Scan signature and print it in a deep navy blue.
use a ball point pen to do the signature that you'll scan. You'll have inconsistencies in line weight/color - this will add to its authenticity. If the signature is particularly swooshy - this effect will be amplified.
You're not going to fool anyone.
Its either going to look like a script font or an actual signature.
You could try using a graphics tablet and illy to make a vector of the handwriting.
* notifies the authorities
Just to be more clear, in terms of printing what can be done?
You know when you get a letter from a politician in the mail and its hard to tell whether they signed it by hand or not? The ink in the signature bleeds into the paper more than normal - like they really signed it. I want to do that.
emboss it v slightly .. like a kiss emboss
I thought you were going to ask how to forge a signature. This thread is extremely disappointing.
when ink doesn't run from a smudge of our finger its pretty much a telltale sign that it's fake, no emboss or high res scan is going to change that
