Hi Dina.I'm doing well. How are you? Is that hand signed or that signature printed?~Diana
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hand signed pencil. That's what I was told. How do I check for sure?
Expert:  Diana F. replied 1 year ago.
Sorry I missed your reply. I had to step out so I'm just seeing it. You should be able to tell by looking at it. A printed signature is going to look like flat ink---just like the image. A hand signature, especially pencil, is going to have a different shine or stick out from the image. You also might see impressions where it was signed (generally a pencil will make marks in the paper or you can feel the signature on the back of the print where the pencil pushed the paper)..Does that make sense?.Is the picture you sent your actual print or a sample of what yours is supposed to look like?~Diana

Hi Dina.I hadn't heard back so I thought I would check in. Could you tell if that was a printed signature or actually hand signed?~Diana
