There are so many different ways to structure an email signature, and a lot of the time it comes down to personal preference. That’s why we have spent a long time creating these examples, so you can get an idea of what you like. All of these email signature examples were created using Gimmio, following our design tips to inspire you to create amazing email signatures for your business.
When creating a signature, it’s very important to get it right the first time, otherwise, you could be doubling up on your work. So, the moral of the story is, pick the best example you can find and create your email signature based on it.
Take your time to examine our samples and note down the key criteria that you want to incorporate. An effective signature for one company doesn’t mean it will work for another company, so carefully consider what you want and need out of your email signature.
Here are some things to consider:
- Look and Feel – If you don’t like the look of an email signature, what’s the point of having one? You have to love the design, otherwise, you will forever be changing your mind and never settle on one that you like. So, even though this is a fairly obvious point, it is an important one.
- Ability to Modify – You should always look for an email signature that you can change in the future. Although this might seem trivial, it’s not, and here’s why. Imagine you re-brand your business in the future, and your new logo is slightly wider or taller than the previous one. This could cause your signature to look lopsided and not quite right, which means it could be very expensive for a web developer to re-create it with the new logo. When you use a tool like Gimmio, you will always be able to change your logo and change spacing and other details to make your new logo look right.
- Size – It is a known fact that the smaller your email signature (in KB), the better. A smaller email signature not only decreases the load on your (and others) mail servers, it also makes it load quicker on your recipient’s email client. There is nothing worse than receiving an email that takes 10-15 seconds to render the images all because the images are not compressed prior to being used in the signature.
When we created the examples below, we only used about 4-5 different layouts to show you what is possible. Gimmio currently has 18 layouts to choose from, which means you can make almost any email signature you want. We have included some samples for specific industries below so you can see what a good email signature for your industry looks like.
