What will I need?
You will need a render, i reccomend going to
Some C4Ds, I have a small pack to download Here.
and a bit of time.

The Tut.
First of all go to File | New and create a new image, im using 500 x 200, before you hit ok, click on advanced options, and where it says fill with, select transparency.

Now put your render onto the image, if it has a black background,
get the magic wand tool and select the black, then go Select | Grow and grow it by 1px.
Now hit delete. If it has a logo on it just use the eraser tool to remove it.

Duplicate your render, the duplicate button is the one circled.

Now hide your original layer by clicking the eye button. (the one thats circled.)

On the top layer duplicate it about 7 times, move each layer until the whole screen is covered.
If its covered and you have layers left over just delete them.

Now go to Image | Merge visible layers and just hit merge.

Go to Filters | Noise | Pick and move both sliders to 100.

You can now un-hide the original layer (eye icon)

Now go Layer | Layer to image size.

Duplicate the layer 3 times and select the smudge brush.
Choose the confetti brush and the rate at about 85 on each layer just smudge the render.
Now move the original render to the top of the layers. The first image is my render not at the top and second is where it is at the top.

Now get a C4D you can use one from the pack i put the link to at the top^ im using the one named green.
Go to File | Open as layers and open it up.
Now set the layer mode to overlay and put it underneath your original render and all the smudge layers. The circled layer is the C4D.

Now get the text tool and write some text, make sure the colour is white.
Now set the layer mode to overlay, if you can't see it very well the duplicate the layer but some people dont like their text to clear.

Now go File | Save and name it (name here).png, then hit ok to all the settings, and there you have it a basic signature.

If you want the white glow coming up on my final version then create a new transparent layer,
select your foreground colour to white, select the gradient tool and choose FG to Transparent, then stroke up the corner.

Hope this helps!
