I’ve been wondering the same thing– I think there are frames made especially for ketubahs where the glass can be easily raised for the signing and then lowered.  We’re just going to use a regular ballpoint pen.  Good luck!

Why don’t you just leave the glass out? That’s what I thought people do for signing the frame as the guestbook. Keep in mind that having the frame there might make it awkward for signing, and for reading it at the ceremony (if you’re doing that, we are).

I don’t know about framing yet (I’m going to get advice from my ketubah artist/writer) but for the signing, make sure you use a special pen that has archival ink!!

Our good friends got married last fall and just gave us their pens (it came in a pack of 2).  I just found a link online for the pens I have:

I have seen ketubot signed with regular pens–after years (I don’t know how many, the particular ketubah I’m thinking of is about 20 years old), the signatures look faded and yellow.

My friend had her ketubah framed in the mat board only for the signing ceremony — that way they could sign it. They displayed it during the reception in just the mat board as well. After the wedding, they had the framing completed with the actual frame.

It’s probably too late for the OP, but we got ours all framed, other than the glass, before the wedding.  After it is signed, we’ll have the glass added.  Here is what it looks like right now.
