So, how do you get around all that?

Just print your documents to a PDF file and upload it to the DocuSend website as usual. Then go to Review Individual Documents and select which documents you want to be mailed Certified under the Special Handling dropdown menu. Mail certified document from your computer
That's it – you're done!
Your document tracking number will be posted on your secure DocuSend portal by the time it mails the next business day.
