Depends if you have a scanner and what the document is for. If you want to sign a document and return it by email, print it, sign it & scan it. Alternatively, just scan a copy of your sig and save it as a .jpg which can then be included in a Word (or similar) document.
Unless you are talking about digital signing which is a whole different ball game.
Sign a piece of paper, photograph it using your smart phone and email the picture to yourself. On the pc download the image and save it to your machine. Open the word document and click insert picture, pick the image and then just resize. Done.
Yeah. Just insert a picture of your signature. You may need to crop it using the phones editing features. That's it. Done

Yep.

To add to this, it's important to add the purpose and a datestamp to the signature. For instance,


33301006-IQD81.jpg....is easy to steal and reuse for malicious purposes, if your data is ever leaked.

33301006-bflpd.jpgwhile looking a bit messy (especially as I've drawn it here, in MS Paint), is much harder to steal. You also have a copy to keep in your own records, should you need to verify or confirm the signature, or discredit a forgery.

Thanks all, how is a digital signature created, is it different?

Probably easiest to Wikipedia explain - "A digital signature is a mathematical scheme for demonstrating the authenticity of digital messages or documents. A valid digital signature gives a recipient reason to believe that the message was created by a known sender (authentication), that the sender cannot deny having sent the message (non-repudiation), and that the message was not altered in transit (integrity).[1]

Digital signatures are a standard element of most cryptographic protocol suites, and are commonly used for software distribution, financial transactions, contract management software, and in other cases where it is important to detect forgery or tampering.
" HTTPS makes use of a digital signature but they can be used for signing emails and other things.
I used a drawing app on my phone and used a stylus to create my signature, transferred it to and stays on my computer.

Or just use a work signature. Never use your real signature.

With a photo editor the purpose can easily be scrubbed out.
