Bluebeam Revu: Bluebeam Digital Signatures Creation

All digital signatures are electronic, but not all electronic signatures are digital. Bluebeam digital signatures creation is easy and you can then use them to sign any PDF!  For companies on a budget that need an occasional signature this is for you. You already own Bluebeam so why not use their digital signatures feature.

There are three different types of Bluebeam digital signatures creation choices. If you work for a larger organization, your IT team may already have a system for the creation of digital IDs. If that’s the case, you’ll use the ID you already have. You can also create a Digital ID in the Windows certificate store or create a digital id using the PCKS#12 format.

Creating Your Digital Certificate

If you don’t already have a Digital ID, and don’t have any IT experience, create is PKCS #12. It’s common because it’s standards-based and works across systems. This is the type we create in the video (below). When you create a PKCS #12 digital id, you’ll need to set a password. The password must be at least 5 characters, and you want to make sure you remember it (or keep it in a secure location). If you forget your password, you won’t be able to digitally sign a document, and you’ll have to create a new digital signature! So don’t lose it! (Aren’t you glad we’re telling you now?!)

Let’s walk you through the steps to make a digital signature. We’ll use the image you made of your electronic signature in our previous blog post.

Now that you have your digital ID created, watch for our next blog post on how to send your digital ID to other, so your signature can be verified outside your firm. This is important for legal contracts as they are likely to need verification. This is especially true if the only document you execute is a digital one. Trust but verify!
