Please help me use the correct term to indicate: "Please [sign with a shorthand version of your signature] all these pages and then sign in full on the last page."

    I'm not sure what you mean by "a shorthand version of your signature", but in general, when a full signature is not required, but some sort of proof is required that something has been read, I see "Please initial...", e.g., "Please initial each change, and sign the bottom of the final page.".

  • Thank you, @JeffZeitlin. Yes, that is what I am looking for. Mar 13 '18 at 15:11

I believe what you're looking for is something like:

Please initial each page and sign your name on the last page.

The verb, "to initial," means (1) to affix an initial to, and (2) to authenticate or give preliminary approval to by affixing the initials of an authorizing representative.
