An easy way to fill out documents

Recently our family had to do a business transaction. I was sent a seven-page document that my mom had signed. The request was that I:

  • Print out the document
  • Sign the document
  • Scan all 7 pages
  • Email to my sister in Boston
  • Have her print it
  • Have her sign it
  • Have her scan it
  • Have her send it back to the business

After doing some calculations in my head and trying to scan two pages, I knew this was not going to work.

  • I could barely read my mom’s signature. After scanning, the form was practically blank.
  • Every iteration would mean a degradation of quality.
  • And it took forever to scan each page!

Fortunately, being a self-proclaimed geek, I went the easy route. I used a website for PDFs.

  • I uploaded my document to fillanypdf.com.
  • I applied electronic signatures to each page.
  • I emailed the link to my sister.
  • She electronically signed it.
  • We sent it to the business.

It was so easy. I love how it is easy to fill out any PDF form and also easy to apply signatures. No wasted time scanning, no decrease in quality, and I now have an electronic copy of the entire signed document if needed.

And it’s free! What a deal!
