Adobe Sign - Electronic Signature Solution


Adobe Sign Reviews: Pricing & Software Features 2020 ...

Adobe Sign is now available for TCNJ staff/faculty members with a college business need to distribute for execution, and obtain, digital signatures on PDF documents.

Some highlights of using Adobe Sign:

  • The intended signer will receive a link directly to their email to sign the PDF in their browser
  • The recipient of the document does not need to have Adobe Acrobat installed to sign
  • Adobe Acrobat will attach a page to the end of the PDF with time/date stamps of when the document was sent and signed

Adobe Sign is not available with the free Adobe program Adobe Reader DC or our previous premium version of Adobe Acrobat 2017. If you are in need of the Adobe Sign service for the purpose of distributing PDFs for digital signatures, please contact the Help Desk at 609-771-2660 or email with your request so we may generate a ticket for your Support Specialist to review with you.

For more information on how to use the Document Cloud services, refer to this Adobe support article here.

Digital signatures differ from electronic signatures
A electronic signature is an electronic symbol attached to a contract or other record, used by a person with an intent to sign, while digital signatures guarantee that an electronic document is authentic.  However, both digital and electronic signature are binding.

Electronic Signatures
Licensees of Acrobat DC ONLY (not Creative Cloud) may use Acrobat DC to create documents with a signature field for manual distribution (i.e. direct email) for the purpose of obtaining the electronic signature. The recipient of the emailed PDF may execute the electronic signature manually via free Acrobat Reader or Preview (MacOS) and email the electronically signed document back to you.

For instructions of how to use the Adobe Sign feature with Adobe Acrobat DC, refer to Adobe's instructional documentation here.
