Endorsement

 

a transfer signature, that is, a signature written on the back of a draft, check, bill of lading, or some other type of security to establish transfer of legal title of these documents from one person (the endorser) to another. The endorsement may be a full endorsement, that is, an endorsement to the order of a person (indicating to whom or to whose order the document is transferred), or a blank endorsement (to bearer). The endorsement on a draft or check makes the endorser liable for the amount indicated on the document.
