Hello all. I have created a custom fillable stamp with text fields, a dropdown field and fields that pull the current date and identity. The requirement is to have a digital signature instead of just the identity name be pulled in. Im assuming this is not possible but cant find any documentation to neither confirm or deny this. If its possible please direct me to the proper source. If a digital signature is not possible but pulling in an image of the signature is possible, please send me to the proper resource. I'm not talking about a separate stamp, I need to pull this into the fillable stamp itself. Please advise.

You can add an image field to your stamp and then prompt the user to select the image for it, like this: this.getField("Signature").buttonImportIcon();

No, it's not, because all the fields in the stamp are flattened when it is applied, so if you did it you would only end up with an image of a digital signature, not an actual one.

That makes sense. Do you know if there is a way or the script I need to use an image of the users signature? Kinda like when you make a signature stamp but include it in the stamp itself? I hope I'm making sense. Thanks!

You can insert an image of the user's hand-written signature, but it won't be a digital signature, it's just an image.

Thank you for responding. I do understand that. Do you know the script that does this or can you point me in the right direction? I am having a hard time getting this actual solution.

You can create a proper signature image that will work both as a stamp and an imported image onto a stamp here:

https://www.pdfscripting.com/public/PDF-Signature-Stamps.cfm

 

There is also a trick for using a stamp to mark a signature placeholder location on a PDF sent through Adobe Sign. Which is a great way to process invoices  and such. Contact me if you are interested.
