Signature ideas: Learn how how to create a signature that looks perfect and unique.

In an email a few weeks ago, a Write Choice reader asked me:

“How to make a signature, which is perfect as per handwriting analysis, and makes me a successful person?”

I understand even you are here to know how to make a signature, which is both powerful and unique. I will tell that you in a while how to create a signature.

But before that, I want to tell you a very important thing about signatures, which you must know.

Do you know that some types of signatures are really harmful? If you did not know that, I strongly recommend that you read this article.

As a handwriting analyst, I believe everyone should know about those harmful signatures so that you or loved ones do not adopt them.

Why your signature is important

Each signature style is unique and usually inimitable. A signature is not only a unique but also a valuable possession. Even when valued monetarily.

Take George Washington’s, for example. His signature on his personal copy of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the First Congress was sold at auction in 2012 for $9.8 million.

That’s how valuable a signature is. It’s priceless because it represents you even in your absence.

So, even when cannot sell your signature for an exorbitant amount, your signature is still important and valuable because it reflects your personality, and says a great deal about your characteristics.

Therefore, it is essential that all of us know how to make a signature correctly.

How to make a signature in perfect way

In order to learn how to make a good signature, you need to keep in mind some important rules of signature analysis.

According to signature analysis, various factors contribute to a perfect signature. I give below 5 signature ideas that will guide you on how to make a signature, which is perfect.

Signature idea #1: Create a signature in cursive

how to create a signature in cursive

How to make a signature: You should always sign in cursive. Just the way American geologist Clarence King did.

Do signatures have to be cursive? Yes.

Cursive writing, according to, not only improves a person’s confidence, but also helps you develop a strong sense of identity.

Cursive writing is not merely a form of communication. It unlocks potential for abstract thinking, allows the human brain to compartmentalize, and expands memory capacity. It develops individual expression.

You can check the signature of any famous or successful person. It will always be in cursive. So, when you create a signature, keep that in mind.

Benefits of cursive
  • Cursive improves confidence
  •  Expands memory capacity
  •  Unlocks potential for abstract thinking

Signature idea #2: Use Capitals

Jeff Bezos signature

How to make a signature: Keep the capital letters healthy in size. Just the way you see in the signature of Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon.

Make sure that the first letter of your name or surname is never written in lowercase. The first letter in your signature should always be written in capital.

Graphology says the presence of small case first letter in a signature could cause a loss of self-confidence, and fill the writer with a feeling of worthlessness.

Benefits of using capitals
  • Raises your self-esteem
  •  Helps you work confidently
  •  Keeps you stable in adversities

Signature idea #3: Keep it simple

Signature of Michael L Corbat

How to make a signature: Just like the signature of Michael L Corbat, CEO, Citigroup.

In an attempt to create a signature or make their signatures look stylish, several of you might end up introducing some unnecessary strokes.

These unnecessary strokes may appear harmless to untrained eyes, but they may cause hindrance in your personal growth at some level.

So, I reiterate: Keep the signature simple.

Benefits of simplicity
  • Helps you stay grounded
  •  stops you from over-promising
  •  projects your humility

Signature idea #4: Create a signature of correct size

Carly Fiorina signature

How to create a signature: The size of the signature should not be too big or too small. Just the way American businesswoman Carly Fiorina signs.

According to handwriting analysis, when you create a signature, it is necessary to maintain an equilibrium between the size of your handwriting and that of your signature.

It means your signature should not be much bigger or smaller than your handwriting. Why?

A signature much bigger than handwriting could sometimes indicate megalomania. On the other hand, a smaller size of signature could mean that the writer will never have the courage to speak his mind.

Take a look at all the signature samples I have given above. None of them are either too big or too small. That’s the kind of balance you should be aiming for.

Benefits of correct size
  • Shows don’t pose to please others
  •  Gives courage to stand your ground
  •  Helps you speak fearlessly

Signature idea #5. Create a signature with Underline

How to Make a Perfect Signature in 5 Easy But Effective Steps 1

How to create a signature: You should underline it if you want. But it is not mandatory.

While learning how to make a signature, many people want to know whether underlining the signature is good or bad.

A simple underline indicates a healthy self-confidence and reaffirmation of the self. It indicates that person has a healthy ego, confidence, which helps him make a good impression on others.

So, should you underline your signature? Yes, you should. But just one. Two or more underlines show that the writer is haunted by feelings of imperfections and incompleteness.

Benefits of using underline
  • Shows your steadfast nature
  •  Gives you a sense of self-assurance
  •  Helps you make a good impression

How to make a signature: Conclusion

When you are in the process of learning how to make a signature, you are likely to encounter many suggestions. It is important for you to pick the correct suggestions. Else, you won’t get the desired results.

Another important thing: when you create a signature, you are free to add your personal touch to your signature.

For example, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey adds an ‘@‘ at the start of his signature. Adding an ‘@‘ in his signature makes sense for Dorsey because the symbol is a critical part of Twitter. But it may not make sense for you.

Therefore, unless there is some element which makes you unique as a person or defines you in some way, you should not add any unnecessary elements in your signature.

Frankly, there are several other aspects of a signature which is kept in mind by a signature analyst while recommending to his client. Unfortunately, not all of them could be covered in a single article.

However, if you’re here to learn how to make a signature, which is perfect, the five signature ideas mentioned above will give a solid direction.

Before you leave and get down to create a signature, remember to read the article on harmful signatures I spoke about at the start of the article.
