Save signatures to a PDF file
There are four options which we would recommend, depending on the business process which you need to implement:
sign pro PDF: this provides a ready-made user interface for editing PDF files allowing you to add signatures as well as sticky notes and free-form drawing
sign pro PDF API: this enables you to automate certain aspects of the signature placement when using sign pro PDF. Instead of the user placing the signature themselves you can predefine where the signature area will appear. Please note that this product is chargeable. For pricing information please contact your regional Wacom Business Development Manager. If you don't know who this is please email email@example.com.
Signature SDK: use the SDK to capture the signature(s) and then use a third-party library (examples below) to embed the signature(s) in your PDF file.
The Signature SDK works with a wide range of Wacom input devices and captures signatures in a format which is compatible with sign pro PDF and our signature analysis products.
Here is a list of some PDF libraries which we have used. Please note that this is for information only - it is not an exhaustive list of all those that are available and we cannot provide any support or guarantees for third-party products.

- STU SDK: Use the SDK to capture the signatures and then use a third-party library (examples above) to embed the signature(s) in your PDF file.
This has the advantage that you can specify your own image format but it limits you to our STU range of signature pads and requires more development effort.
Please note that signatures captured by this means would not be compatible with our analysis tools.
