“Great app! Easy to use and is great. Saved me a ton of time and hassle. Saved me a ton of money on printing too. I had to get some important paperwork signed and emailed asap and I found this app. So easy to set up. Super awesome.”

Brian Ediger customer testimonial

“Use it a lot! Great for emergency signings. I don’t have a fax, and it takes forever to print, sign, scan, send. This way I just save the doc to my device, use a saved signature or initials, then email it back!”
