    Hey folks... I use a visible copyright stamp on my client photos and I have been kicking around the idea of a signature as opposed to a generic stamp. Here are both versions. What do you all think?

    Date/Name Only:
    $Date Copyright.jpg

    Full Signature w/date and name:
    $Full Signature Copyright.jpg

    I'm going to do one or the other and I'm thinking for art pieces... the full signature but I don't know that I'd use it on a portrait for a client.

    Throwing it out there.

    I've thought about doing a sig, but I'm too paranoid about having my actual signature out here in the Wild Wild Web. Maybe it is time to develop an Art sig..

    I like to add something to my delivered prints like this:

    (the above centered)

    Then personally sign the print at delivery.
