How can I add the "Print Name" under the client's signature on form GA-8453?

You don't.  The box for "Check also if paid preparer" would have been checked" already.

If you refer to the filing instructions, here's what it says:

If the prepare is also the ERO, do not complete the Preparer Section; instead, check the box labeled "Check also if paid preparer" in the ERO section.

In case you're not e-filing the return, you will then omit the ERO section and just fill out the one for Paid Preparer.

Thank you for the information. I'm referring to the client's name being printed under their signature. I don't see an option to populate their name on the firm under where they sign. Also, they don't see the option when they sign the form.

That's never an option since before the age of e-filing until now.  These federal and state e-authorization forms clearly indicate which line or box is for taxpayer and spouse.  That should be all that (most) folks need as far as instructions are concerned.
