Add image or text on top of a one-page PDF

You can do the same thing with most image editors (for example Photoshop) and, to make it look like you actually printed, signed and scanned the document, you can also rotate by half a degree or so, add some noise and then blur a bit. That way it's not immediately obvious that you put the signature on electronically.

I find that Illustrator and a transparent background high quality scanned .png of the signature work very well for this. You can open a specific page of the PDF, paste the image, and save in place.

If you have Photoshop or Illustrator, then you most likely have Acrobat Pro, which includes a signing function. You can create multiple signatures with different display features, I use one with an image of my signature (scanned to PDF) and the date. For security, password is required to use each signature. Signatures are linked to a digital certificate and if the document is modified after being signed a blue bar appears at the top indicating the signature requires validating.
