Add only your signature to a document and send

Tips from Support

Note:

Adobe Sign always requires that you send your signed document to someone else (meaning another email address). That email address doesn't have to be a real email address, and you could contrive something bogus to satisfy the need. Like g@g.j.t.d.b.whoa.
