I have always done what watercolorists and such do: leave a band of white paper 
around the image. Sign directly below the print, title at left, signature at 
right with date. Signing on the image can be problematic, and signing on the 
reverse is pointless, and if not careful, will telegraph through to the face. I 
use a pencil on matte papers and a drafting pen on gloss.

Well, I’m about to sell my own prints for the first time ever. It’s a bit 
daunting because the charming buyer has asked for my signature on each of the 
prints, one of which is this image:

<http://show.cbimages.uk/Landscapes/Autumn/i-V6CnmVS/A> 

Where do you think I should sign, with what medium (pencil, fibretip . . .) and 
what should I sign? Should it be my full name or my normal signature? 

The printing process was a bit of a pain as well: I bought some Permajet FB 
Matt 285 and used the settings suggested in the box for my Canon 9500II Pro 
(“Other Art Paper”), only to find that the convention for the printer is that 
it requires “Art 35” setting, which loses me 35mm on each end of a landscape 
print. The workaround was to call it Matt Photo Paper which would allow the 
printer to print to the end, but risk the paper curling in the printer path 
(apparently). Well, it didn’t; it came out fine. 

Now to align each print with the photo mount . . .
