Default Sig Size

Can anyone please tell me what size I should make my document in Illustrator/PS for a sig? I cannot seem to find this anywhere and I have tried to look.

I am SO BORED, off work with a bad shoulder, and have very little I can do right now. So, I thought I would play in PS and Illustrator to make myself a BengalB sig.

Thanks!!

Doesn't really matter too much. 500x200 px is a good place to start, and just make it bigger or smaller depending on what you would like.

No limits on this board, I prefer 600 x 400 or 500 x 300 myself.

I usually make my .psd massive in photoshop like 2,000 x 2,000 and then shrink them down because if you do it the other way you are stuck with a blurry looking sig.

That's why I am going to try Illustrator for the sig. Vector type graphics work out better than pixeled ones (in order to avoid the blurry). But that is a great idea for PS...If I get tired of trying to f*** with Ai, I'll just go with PS. I know how to use PS, Illustrator is like greek to me!

I've often thought that if someone could create a good signature for me, I'd use it. Just throwing that out there..

That's a good one from the past. Once the Irish win next month, you can create one for me with that image.

Ahem, Steeler Eater, (or CIN, if you're here), our buddy just tossed out his version of a request. I'll make you one ND, are you fond of white edges?

I generally just swipe something off of Google and doctor it up in MS Paint. Who cares about white edges anyway?
