Which signature capture pad is right for you? Topaz  offers a huge lineup of products depending on the lifespan you need, the signature area you need and more. Here are just a few features you may want to be aware of:

  • Self Inking Backlit Topaz SigLite LCD 4X3SigLite Series – The Topaz SigLite line of signature capture pads are the budget line. They still capture excellent quality signatures and have a 10,000-signature lifespan. The most popular SigLite we offer is the Topaz SigLite 1×5 found here. These are commonly used for legal signatures on a variety of documents including PDFs.
  • SignatureGem Series – The Topaz SignatureGem series of signature capture pads are the more robust line as they have a 250,000-signature lifespan. These pads are excellent for use in pharmacies and other high traffic locations where a lot of signatures are required on a daily basis. These tablets come in a wide range of sizes. The Topaz SignatureGem LCD 1×5 (found here) is one of our most popular models.
  • Self Inking – Many of our signature capture pads simply capture the signature, but sometimes it is necessary to see the signature on the pad itself. If you need to see the signature, you will need a self inking pad. These pads can be as simple as a 1″ x 5″ area for a signature or it can be a much larger area (depending on the model) where additional text and logos can be displayed.
  • Backlit – If you are trying to get signatures in a low-lit area, you may need a signature capture pad that is backlit. Backlit means the signature area glows, making it easy to see what’s going on. While this isn’t always necessary, it is a nice feature to have for your customer.

We offer over a dozen different types of Topaz signature capture pads. This includes models with a USB connection and models with a serial connection. All Topaz signature capture pads include software and developer tools are available for easy integration with other software and hardware applications.
