You could also put a piece of scotch tape over the signature to prevent it from disappearing.

We don't have a matte signature line on our cards, but we find that they do about as well a signature line as long as you give the permanent marker about a minute to dry after the patron signs it.

We get our cards from a Hood River-based vendor called NorthWest GraphicWorks. They were great to work with and got us beautiful cards. I called them and they said they could get cards with matte lines.

We are looking for a library card vendor that provides a matte signature line on the back of the library card.  Our current vendor can only provide a smooth signature line, which seems to make the signature rub off or smear when using a Sharpie pen.  Does anyone know of a vendor that provides an area on the card that is not smooth? Does anyone use a signature line that is covered with a small piece of paper - like on a charge card?  If so, do these have a tendency to smear or rub off too? Thanks for any information.
