Common temptations in email signature design

  • Don't go overboard with information in your email signature, only put in what is necessary. Remember it's an email signature, not a life story.
  • Don't put any contact details that you don't use regularly in your email signature. For example, if you're not in the office a lot, skip the office phone and just include your mobile. Remember, receiver's of your email signature will use the information provided to contact you.
  • Use the same font throughout and definitely NO Comic Sans.
  • Use only up to 2 colors, one base color like a grey or black and one brighter color that matches your business branding.
  • Don't include personal quotes in a business email signature, unless you are a writer, or have an extremely good reason to do so.
