4 jQuery Digital Signature Plugins

By Sam Deering

There are plenty of ways to allow users to draw a signature in a browser window, many involving clever jQuery plugins. Everything is going digital and this is the future we must all look forward to. Here are the best digital signature plugins I’ve found.

1. jSignature

A jQuery plugin that simplifies creation of a signature capture field in a browser window, allowing a user to draw a signature using mouse, pen, or finger. Check out a demo.


2. Signature Pad

A jQuery plugin for assisting in the creation of an HTML5 canvas based signature pad. Records the drawn signature in JSON for later regeneration. Check out a demo.


3. jQuery UI Signature

A jQuery UI plugin that captures or draws a signature. It requires the jQuery UI widget and mouse modules and needs the excanvas.js add-in for older IE versions.


4. jSignature

A jQuery plugin for adding web signature functionality. Check out a demo.

  • Hi Sam thanks for the great article!

    We’ve been using the WP E-Signature WordPress plugin by ApproveMe to sign our documents for a while and loving it! :)

    It has a UETA/ESIGN compliant document signing technology (with the jquery signature pad) like Docusign or Adobe EchoSign but for WordPress.

    Have you heard of it?

    The list is not 100% exact. Number 4 is only a fork of number 1. Number 4 is more advanced so number 1 shouldn’t be on the list anymore.
