Sample Email Signatures

By | March 9, 2010

Email signatures are similar to signatures which are put at the end of a letter. However there is a difference in signing one’s name at the end of a letter and putting a signature at the end of an email. A few tips need to be followed when designing an email signature.

1     Do not make the signature too long. It should hardly be four lines

2     Do not add unnecessary information like address, detailed project description etc

3     Do not repeat things that are already stated in the email body like email address, main points etc

4     If its an official mail id remember to include the designation

5     Include quotes but do not make them too long

6     Signature should match with the purpose of the email. Formal emails should have a formal signature and informal emails should have an informal signature.

A few example signatures are as follows
