p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · paperless contracts



I'm a little surprised. I did a topic search on contracts, and this didn't come up. Seems like it's been discussed in here, but I just can't seem to find it.

My wife/partner and I would like to go paperless with our contracts. Through Adobe, we have this online fillable forms, but it appears we have to use a company for the electronic signature. She's found Echosign, and the pro version is $15/mo. Just wondering what anyone else was using out there.

Thanks,
Ron

We use SignNow based on recommendations from others here.

Thanks, John. That's what I remember now that you've mentioned it. Not sure why I couldn't find that topic. It's a better deal, so looks like we're going for it. Thanks!

Just an FYI: According to Ed Greenberg, a copyright attorney who wrote The Photographer's Survival Manual with Jack Reznicki, electronic contracts do not hold up well under courtroom scrutiny. Just something to consider. I realize that they are popular.

I'm not positive if it's just my account or not, but SignNow appears to no longer be free for sending out contracts to be signed. Previously it was, but it wouldn't let me last night

Here's how I do it...

I create an original in Acrobat Pro (annually) and keep that in DropBox. When I consult a client, I have most of it filled out ahead of time based on email communication, and keep their personal copy in DropBox.

At the time of any physical constult, I open that copy on the iPad and continue to fill out the rest during the interview in PDF Expert. It allows me to get signatures, send flattened copies to the client and retain the original "unflatted" version as well for future corrections and edits.

The same contract can be sent to distant clients to fill out, print, sign, and mail to me. Once I have their physical copy, I sign and scan. They get a copy of the scan.

This system has worked perfectly well for me for two years now.

Right. It's $8.33/mo for the paid account for up to 30 signatures a month.

It appears even then you can no longer invite signers to digitally sign documents, you have to print them or fax them to be physically signed- if that's what it means for the "Link to Sign" feature. I'm on free and the "Invite Signers" button is now locked. Unless I'm missing something.
Guess you can't blame them for wanting to make a buck.
Also, $8.33 seems to be an odd price.

$8.33*12 = $99.96; it's the closest monthly equivalent to $100/year.

from signnow- "Sorry for the inconvenience! As of February 13, 2013 in order to "invite" signers is a Pro feature, you would need to upgrade to invite other signers. You can choose to upgrade for $14.99 a month or the annual of $99.99 which comes out to be $8.33 monthly."

When you use these electronic signatures, are you getting one signature, or both? From what I can tell on Sign Now, you can only get one signature. On my paper contracts, I've always required both B&G to sign.

You can get multiple. Either send the invite to both of their email addresses or they both just sign from the one.

A little late to the discussion, but I recently started using DocuSign for a commercial client and it has works pretty seamlessly.
