I just created a mock-up of a large framed print in Photoshop to show relative dimensions of the print, reveal, mat, frame, etc. This is for a friend, and my first-ever paying customer (i.e., for a framed print as opposed to a digital file/permissions).
To show how this would would look with my signature, I scanned my sig. and placed it in as a layer on the reveal in the lower right. Given that I don't always like how my signature ends up looking, I considered just printing the file with the scanned signature still in the image.
I have seen debates on pencil vs. pen, and debates about signing on the front vs. back, but I have never heard of a photographer "signing" a print in this way. Do photographers ever do this? Is this/would this be considered tacky or bad practice?
