    Signers, signors, signees, or signatories

    What is it called for a person who signs the cheque?
    Thanks.

    The person who draws the cheque is the drawer, but the question was relating to what you call someone who signs something.

    And definitely not 'signors'. They might be signore or signori, but that's a whole nother language.

    Endorsers also sign the cheque before transfering it.

    Anglika is right, what I mean is the name for a person who signs the cheque, not who draws the cheque. Thank you all.
