Including a signature in drawing on sign off

Our company's process of signing off drawings used to be:

Designer creates PDF of drawing

Approver Checks Drawing

Approver Edits PDF by adding a Stamp of their signature to the PDF

We send it out to manufacturer and manufacturer doesn't produce the part unless we have a signed off pdf.


Now i've set up PDM i have included the DrawnBy and CheckedBy custom properties which automatically fill out.

Our manufacturer is now saying (and now the boss), it has to have a signed off signature on the drawings, which would mean a manual process.

Anyone have any ideas how I can add the signatures to a drawing template and suppress them and only unsuppress the one which relates to the person which has approved it?

Perhaps make the signature into a Block instead but how would I add the signature block through a process.



Such a pain...
