Digital Signature Capture Pads and Adobe Acrobat

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

Topaz Signature Capture PadsI have had several people ask me recently if our Topaz line of signature capture pads (SigLite and SignatureGem) are able to put a signature in Adobe Acrobat. My answer is an emphatic yes. Our Topaz signature capture pads easily capture and insert the image into an Adobe Acrobat form (PDF Document).

How is this done? Our signature capture pads (by Topaz) include include an Adobe plug-in that makes it possible to add fields and signatures safely and securely. Once installed, the plug-in actually adds tools right into Adobe Acrobat, making PDF creation and editing easy.

Our Topaz signature capture pads can also easily be used with Microsoft Word, Excel and many other programs. They are also compatible with Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 operating systems.

Many of our customers like to use our signature capture pads for the signing of contracts, creation of documentation and more. A few weeks ago I wrote an article about using a Topaz signature capture pad at my local DMV for adding a signature to a driver’s license. They have many uses and can be integrated with many programs.

Digital Signature Capture Pads – What To Look For

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Signature Capture Pads from TopazSignature capture pads are found almost everywhere now. They are used in retail stores at the checkout, in the pharmacy for signing for a prescription or even in an office for digitally signing legal documents. These digital capture pads are also widely used to ad signatures to photo ID cards and security badges.

One observation you may have made when using these devices is that some work much better than others. Quality amongst signature capture pads varies wildly among makes and models. Sometimes people are simply using the wrong capture pad for the wrong job. We sell a wide variety of digital signature capture pads from Topaz.

Here are a few things you may want to keep in mind when shopping around for a signature capture pad.

Visual Display – Some signature capture pads only capture the signature, but do not give you a visual representation in “e-ink.” Most signature capture pads will give you some sort of e-ink display.

Backlit Screen – Not all signature capture pads are backlit. If you plan on using a signature capture pad in a dark or low-lit room, be sure you get a model that is backlit.

Number of Signatures – Signature capture pads are rated for a certain number of signatures. The SigLite 1X5 is an example of a model that is rated for 10,000 signatures. The SignatureGemLCD 1×5 is an example of a model that is rated for 250,000+ signatures.

Signing Area – How big an area do you need? If you only need a signature, a 1×5 pad will be more than efficient. If you need to display additional text, menu options or wording, a pad with taller dimensions will be required.

Developer Software Tool Kits – Most signature capture pads we sell from Topaz will work with programs designed to be used with signature capture pads. We offer software development tools for free that can be used to integrate our Topaz pads with software or databases. You can find these developer software tools here.
