Surveys must be original with original signatures .  Surveys are scanned into a computer system also and can be printed full size.  We do not keep a copy of surveys so the original may be on paper.  Please Keep in mind that the Survey must also have the "prepared by" and "affirmation statement", be notarized and all signatures must have the printed name beneath.
