Traditionally, a person must have a universal version of the signature, which he uses absolutely for all documents. However, this does not always happen, so sometimes you have to invent several versions at once. A special conversation deserves exactly the signature for the passport and other documents, which often have to deal with. How to come up with a signature for the documents? Are there any requirements for it? And what can she say about her owner?
What can tell a signature about a person?
Graphologists argue that the handwriting of man is the best way to tell about him, if, of course, this handwriting was natural, and was not created on purpose. The same applies to the signature, as part of everyday writing. By the slope of the letters, their shape, the number of additional elements, and even by pressing the rod, you can gather a lot of information about the owner of the signature. Is it worth it in this case to customize under any framework in order to give what is desired for the real? Hardly. All the same, you will eventually return to what is familiar and comfortable for you. However, you can go from the opposite, and using the example of the most characteristic features associated with one or another type of signature, try to form your own.
For example, it is believed that creative people usually have a sweeping handwriting, which affects their signatures: it is large, all lines are far from each other, and even if there are only 2-3 letters in it, they take up a lot of paper space. Here, too, sweeping strokes are frequent, especially at the end of the signature, which speak of pronounced selfishness.
People are reserved, serious, purposeful, thoughtful, often writing concisely, briefly. All elements of the signature are located close to each other, the letters are aligned in height and width, there are no unnecessary details. Also, as a signature, they mainly use only the surname, name or patronymic, and, moreover, in full.
The person is open and cheerful, easy-going, positions his signature so that it goes upwards - the final element is higher than the initial one, its last line is extended upwards or to the diagonal, but to the top corner. A closed cynic and a realist, on the contrary, will complete the signature with a short stroke, almost a dot, and place the signature itself either clearly horizontally or with a slight downward slope.
The size of the letters can also say a lot about the owner of the signature. Large details at the very beginning, or is the whole signature a volume monogram? Its owner is capricious, impatient, used to getting everything at once and only the best. He sometimes puts high demands on others and on himself, but at the same time tries to meet them.

How to come up with a beautiful signature? Of course, to be inspired by existing ones. There is definitely nothing wrong with that: even if you want to almost completely duplicate someone’s option, you are unlikely to achieve complete identity, so you shouldn’t be afraid of “plagiarism”. But to get ideas for your own creation never hurts.
Basically, with such a question, attention is drawn to the signatures of successful people whose “autographs” have more weight than just personal identification on several papers. Media personalities, businessmen, politicians - you can take an example from anyone. And, most likely, it will not be possible to track common features - as it was said above, the signature depends not only on the way of life, but also on the character of the person.
You can also consider the signatures of those who often had to deal with handwritten art: of course, these are poets and prose writers of 18-19 centuries and earlier. The signature of Pushkin or Lermontov is probably familiar to everyone - the traditional spelling of the name and surname, embodied gracefully and smoothly. The same can be said even about the Russian monarchs: the truth is that their signatures were most often limited to a name, but even here there are differences between Alexander II and Alexander III.
How to come up with a signature in the passport and other documents?
The main requirement for such a signature - the convenience of its removal. Be prepared for the fact that she will have to podmahivat document almost "without looking", so your hand should on automatism display the necessary lines and curls. In order to create such a signature, psychologists recommend trying the following simple task: put a piece of paper in front of you, pick up a pen, close your eyes, and abstractly, without trying to create something concrete, sign it several times. Make sure that each option takes only 1-2 seconds - the shorter the signature, the easier it will be for the muscles to remember it.
Since it is not just reasonable to draw lines at random, and the signature should be personified, some recommendations should be followed. First, resort to the initial 3 letters of the last name. This is the most common method by which even the namesakes will still have different signatures. It is good when the 3rd letter is "d", "p", "f" or "y", i.e. one that has a long vertical line — it can always be drawn out as carelessly as possible and, after several light curls or a short line, cut off. Such signatures are most easily reproduced "on the run," but they are certainly not available to everyone.
If the name is not so simple, you can lengthen the signature, taking 5-6 letters, but it will be displayed a little longer. And again, it is most convenient to finish on a long, elongated letter. If nothing comes out here, you can try to arrange the name and surname, or the name and patronymic. It is convenient to start a sweeping signature when the capital letter of the name "M", "H", "L". In this case, your signature does not have to be integral in this case: there are cases when the capital letter of the last name is displayed, and the capital name is superimposed on it, after which it is written in part or in full. The same can be done and vice versa. Well, when the background title - "C", "O", "E", "P", "B": i.e. rounded, voluminous.
More restrained and complex signatures consist of a solid last name and a dotted name at the beginning of the letter, limited by a dot. Most often in such a signature is clearly read the capital letter of the name, and the surname is displayed more blurry, but neatly. This is the type of handwriting, which is called "medical", but it is more elegant and even. If you write complex text in this way, it is unlikely that anyone will understand even a word, but the overall picture will look elegant. Such a type of signature was, for example, in Pushkin, and in general is characteristic of the signatures of tsarist time.
The most recent version, which also takes place, is the combination of the initial letters of the last name, first name and patronymic name in any order or the creation of a single monogram from them: it is a complete character in which all 2-3 letters are read, but the lines in it are usually continuous. Such a monogram was most often used by Russian tsars on ciphers: there, by the way, you can “peep” interesting options. Of course, in addition to the letters themselves, additional lines and curls acted as bundles. They created uniqueness, and this is also an important moment.
If you have already chosen which letters will be present in your signature, you should think about the final touches that give it harmony. These are the very additional lines that can simply become a kind of “point” in the final, as well as a framing “frame”. In addition, you can simply change the slope of the letters (s) somewhere, use the Latin alphabet instead of Cyrillic in whole or in part, play with the type of handwriting - round or, conversely, draw and sharpen the elements.
Whatever signature you come up with, be sure to make sure that it is comfortable in execution. After several trainings on a free sheet of paper, the letters themselves must be folded into the chosen composition, which will be repeated continuously in unchanged form. Of course, with the ruler, no one will check it for accuracy, but you will bring out 1 curl or 4 - it will already strike the eye, and when working with documents it will not have the best effect.
