...but the space on the back of my new credit card sure is! And they print a number on each end of the place you're supposed to sign. I guess you need an ultra fine point pen and a magnifying glass. Sheesh!
Well Scepticalscribe is a long name!Ah, yes, I feel (an dasher) your pain on this.
That is the very reason I started signing my name using my initials and surname, rather than my full name, when I was first issued with cards, as my name is rather long, and - even using initials - it is quite an act of compression to manage to fit it into that tiny space.
On the other hand, it's not like anything in that space really gets used for anything about 99.9% of time.
Hmmm. At some stores, the POS terminal flashes a message to show the card to the cashier. But, come to think of it, I encounter fewer cashiers who ask for it these days. I did manage to squeeze my signature on the back of the card, but it doesn't look much better than using my finger on a display.It's a non-issue.
I never sign my cards. 95% of the time, no one ever mentions that. A few times, I get asked for picture ID, but that's about it.
