iSignature (Step 3) – prepare the document

If you have followed the previous suggestions, you should have a piece of paper in front of you that has the basic layout of how your iSignature is going to look.

We now need to get that into a format that will display exactly what you want.

Open your favourite word processor (well assume MS Word for the moment) and start with an empty page. Now enter the various items from your sheet of paper. The instructions are given for each heading but, of course, just skip any that you are not using.

Type the text in the font that you have chosen.

Signature
Add the sig file you created in Stage 1. This is done as Insert/Picture/From File. If you are going to be hyperlinking your signature to a website then, highlight if and then Insert/Hyperlink and enter the exact address in the form http://www.xxxxxxx.com

Name
Type the text in the font that you have chosen, either as your signature itself, or the text version of your sig file.

Company
Type the text in the font that you have chosen. If you are using a logo then add this as Insert/Picture/From File..
If you are going to be hyperlinking your logo to a website then, highlight if and then Insert/Hyperlink and enter the exact address in the form http://www.xxxxxxx.com

Spell-check
Just to make sure, run the spellchecker on the document (F7).

Save
very obvious but, just in case, save the document to a place you know where it is.

Before we go on to the next, and final, stage, feel free to test out your new iSignature on your existing PC mail account… it’ll work just as well there.
