Email Signature

Branded Gmail Signature

Email signatures can perform a range of functions, both administrative and promotional. Helping staff create a simple, short signature to by balancing out these functions is the goal of this guide.

Signatures should:

  • give basic information about you and your role, demonstrating legitimacy.
  • provide alternative contact information (like a web address or a phone number)
  • be simple:
    • Complicated information may be ignored.
    • Complicated formatting and design may well not appear as expected (or at all) when your recipient views your message.
    • Shorter, simple messages save network bandwidth and save paper if printed.

Signatures should not:

  • provide personal information or reflect personal opinions or tastes.
  • include personal images, attachments, colors, special fonts or other HTML formatting.

An example of a custom short link is:
instead of using that page's full link:

Both go to the same page!
