How can I find out if signatures I have on the gatefold for all four on this album are printed or real?

A picture of the sleeve with the signatures would help us prove if they're real or not. If they're printed, it should be easy enough to tell by looking at them with a magnifying glass.

Ok - so I've had a good look and to me they look real, done in a light pen more like a felt nib so not many indents but certainly do appear to be some in places. I have tried to catch these with the flash. At the same time these look too neat and strategically placed to be quick handed autographs so would really appreciate some oppinions.

Firstly, the advice I would give is to approach a reputable auction house known for dealing in music memorabilia such as Sotherby's or Bonhams. They will have experts who will know if they are right or wrong. A good auction house will usually give an opinion and valuation for free.

That said, and obviously it is impossible to offer a definitive opinion from photographs (especially since the background on which they're written make some harder to make out than others), so this is just my opinion on having downloaded your images and rotated them to have a proper look.

I'm afraid that they don't look quite right to me, and I would lean toward them being either Neil Aspinall or Mal Evans examples (who often signed on their behalf).

However, as I have already said, the only way to know if they are right or wrong is to have an expert look at them in person.

The following people thank Ron Nasty for this post:
