Right now, more and more people are looking to download Adobe Sign and for good reason. When you’re working from home, the last thing you want to do is spend all day printing out documents and signing them physically, especially if you’re paying for the printer ink. 

Adobe Sign offers a quick and easy alternative. This world-class e-signature service lets you send, sign, track, and manage signatures digitally, with no tree-felling required. It's part of the Adobe Document Cloud (more on that below). 

As well as enabling you to sign documents via a mobile app or web browser, you can also request e-signatures from clients, create branded forms, track responses, get email notifications, send reminders for e-signatures, and more. 

Previously known as 'Adobe Document Cloud eSign services' or 'Adobe EchoSign', Adobe Sign meets or exceeds stringent security and legal compliance standards across the world, and its e-signatures are legally binding in nearly every industrialised nation, as well as many less-developed countries. And if you’re signing a lot of documents, getting others to sign them, or a mixture of both, the smart features and automation offered by Adobe Sign will save you a lot of effort and expense over time.

But how do you download Adobe Sign, and can you get it for free? Read on and we’ll explain everything you need to know. Want more useful tools? See our guide to the best PDF editors.

How can I get Adobe Sign for free? 

You can download the Adobe Sign for free, in the form of a seven-day free trial (or 14 days for business users). This will give you ample time to try out the software and discover whether it works for you, without having to pay a penny.

Don’t try to find a free version of the Adobe Sign service elsewhere: you won't. If you search for 'download Adobe Sign free', you'll probably find some fake sites claiming to offer one. But click their so-called 'download' links and you’ll invariably get nothing but a virus-ridden computer for your troubles.

If you decide Adobe Sign isn’t for you during your trial, you can cancel your subscription at any time, either on the website or by contacting customer support, and you won't be charged. Alternatively, if you like it and want to keep your subscription, you won’t have to do anything.

Note: if you only want to use Adobe Sign on mobile, you may be excited to see the Adobe Sign iOS app and Adobe Sign Android app are free to download. However, they aren’t really free, as you’ll still need one of the following subscriptions in order to use them: Adobe Sign, Adobe PDF Pack, Adobe Acrobat DC or Adobe Creative Cloud. 

How do I download Adobe Sign?

You can download Adobe Sign here. To access it you'll need Windows 10 (using Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome), Windows 8 (using Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome) or Mac OS X v11+ (using Safari, Firefox, or Chrome).

Before you do so, though, let us explain the different payment options, so you know what you’re getting yourself into.

Unlike most Adobe software, Adobe Sign is NOT part of the Creative Cloud. So there are only two ways to download Adobe Sign as an individual. There are also two business plans, for small and large organisations respectively. Read on to learn more.

How much does it cost to download Adobe Sign?

For individuals, the cheapest way to get is to take out a subscription known as ‘Adobe Acrobat PDF Pack with e-sign’. At time of writing, this costs $9.99 / £10.42 / AU$14.50 per month, billed annually, and provides you with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and Adobe Sign as a bundle. Note that Adobe does not allow third-party retailers to resell Adobe Sign, so there really is no way to get the software cheaper.

The other option for individuals is called ‘Adobe Acrobat Pro DC with e-sign’. This is currently available for $19.99 / £15.17 / AU$21.99 per month, billed annually, and provides you with both Adobe Sign and Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (for more on the latter, read our article Download Adobe Acrobat).

Managing a team and need more than one Adobe licence? The small business plan starts at £36.50 per user per month, and allows up to nine users. If you need more licences than that, you’ll need the Business and Enterprise Plan, and will have to contact Adobe to discuss pricing directly.

Download Adobe Sign for students: Discounts for students and teachers

Sadly, there is currently no specific student or education discount for Adobe Sign. There are big savings to be made on the Creative Cloud subscription for students, teachers and education workers, but as we mentioned earlier, Adobe Sign is not included in the Creative Cloud, making this a moot point. 

What is the Adobe Document Cloud?

The Adobe Document Cloud is a PDF and e-signature tools ecosystem, integrated across desktop, mobile, and web. Its aim is to create a complete, reliable and automated system for digital signature workflows, to make businesses more productive and consumers happier. 

The Adobe Document Cloud includes Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, Adobe Sign and other desktop, mobile and web apps, which either work on their own or integrate with your existing productivity apps, processes, and systems. 

It's free to create an Adobe Document Cloud account, which comes with 2GB of free storage, but some of the apps and services require subscription, either as single apps or as part of a Creative Cloud All-Apps plan.
