If you efile, it is an electronic signature (your AGI or 2016 PIN) that does not appear on the paper form.

So it is normal for the paper form signature boxes to be all blank? It only said "self-prepared."

Yes, you should have received an email confirmation with an ECN number- that is your electronic signature and proof of filing.  If you need this, you can log back in and look for your 2016 taxes on your timeline.
