What do we Mean by Digital Wet Signature?

When you hear “wet signature”, you’re probably automatically drawn to the use of pen and paper – it’s a physical copy on a paper document, right? At Virtual Cabinet, we’ve taken a different approach.  The digital wet signatures function allows users to electronically sign documents and speed up approvals. It’s a simple and flexible way to get the job done.

What is a Signature?

A signature is a distinctive way of scribing one's name as a form of legal identification, whether that's their full name, initials or a simple mark that shows proof of identity and authorization. Signatures are physical evidence that an individual witnesses and certifies a document, or a section of a document, e.g., a contract. They also provide evidence that the individual has read and consents to the details outlined in the document.

Do Signatures Have to Be Legible?

Predominantly, your signature can be a mark - it can be a symbol, letter or a full signature. Most people write their signatures so quickly that they look more like scribbles, not to mention the difference that a new pen can make. So, technically, it doesn't need to be legible, as long as it's consistent.

Does a Signature Have to Be in Cursive?

Technically, no. Although it is typically recommended that signatures are written either fully or partly in cursive to help prevent fraud. No two people's handwriting is the same, so trying to replicate cursive will naturally be more difficult than copying it out in print.

Who Can Witness a Signature?

Generally, a neutral, third-party individual is best to witness a signature - someone who doesn't have a financial or any other personal interest in the agreement in question. It's also advised that your witness be reliable, 18 or older and have no relation to you.

What Is a Wet Signature?

Typically, wet signatures involve pen and paper. To sign a wet signature is to sign a physical paper document. But, at Virtual Cabinet, we've taken a different approach. Here, we're all about the benefits of digitisation. For us, digital wet signatures allow users to electronically sign documents and speed up approvals. It's a simple and flexible way to get the job done.
