Signascript Signing Machines
Topic: Pens, Pencils
Signascript the signing machine manufacturer and European leader in signature and hand-written text reproduction, is present in more than twenty countries throughout the world.

"A signing machine automatically produces, as many times as you wish, a person's handwriting and signature on documents of variable size and thickness (letters, photos, greeting cards, diplomas, etc.). For some very thick documents, such as books or catalogues, this operation is carried out manually, one document at a time. These machines do not require a special pen to be purchased. Their special feature is to be able to use all type of pens (ball point, fountain pen, felt nib, etc.). The arm that action the pen also makes it possible to exercise a pressure on the document, as you would with the hand. The text reproduced by the machine is the exact reproduction of your writing and not a character font where all letter are always identical."
