Signing your Signature

Recommended Posts

OK so I am switching banks in a few days (more benefits like travel insurance etc) anyway back when I opened my account I sign my name COMPLETELY different... It has gone from "L A Bristol" to "Luke Bristol" (That is not my real last name) and I can not remember how to sign it and now I am in panic mode because I can without fail write my name down 1000 times and each one will be different and I think I am probably likely to run into issues when I go to sign the documents ><.

Does my signature have to look exactly the same? (I always do my Ls, As, Bs etc all the same but the signature who doesn't like the same) every single time because if it does I am probably screwed.

So I guess my question is, how do you make sure you sign your name the same every time?

Edit: Just thinking, I am a lefty and after shattering my left wrist as a child my hand writing has never been that good, it was perfect beforehand but I spent countless months trying to improve it and it didn't work. Also I can not write with my right hand, I literally get confused when I do.

My signature has evolved slightly over the years but is pretty much the same. Honestly, half the time they don't even pay attention >.> I wouldn't worry too much.

I do, but no matter how much I try I can never replicate it, even if I do trace over it for hours. I've tried.

Mine almost never looks the same. I always use my first and last name, but I never sign anything exactly the same way twice.

Never thought it would matter to be really honest.

I recently closed a bank account and didn't sign anything to do so because I opened it online and closed it online.. They did send me a signature card in the beginning but to close it I just used the website. This was Wells Fargo.

My signature is consistant now but it's nothing like what it was when I started signing things, I've had little trouble even so. Companies tend not to care as long as you accept whatever horrific application they give you.

You can change your signature when you like, just so long as you can identify it as your own if you are asked "Did you sign this?"

If they pull you about having a different signature, so long as you can prove you are who you say you are, there will be no problem

I agree with the previous commentators, an inconsistent signature is not a problem.

However, if you want a consistent signature a little quicker and you got too much time on your hands, sit down and write your signature as fast as you can (but in acceptable form) for half an hour.

This should give you a nice burn in. :p

Have your ideal signature made into a rubber stamp -- problem solved.

Apart from despite using them themselves, many places won't accept a rubber stamped cheque or application, at least not here.
