Why put an animated GIF in your email signature?

You only get around 5 seconds to make a first impression. With over 5 billion emails sent every day, you need to make your emails stand out.

Show off your personality with more than just a static image. Let people know you are fun, sporty, serious, crazy, professional or maybe all these, with multiple images displaying all your traits in style!

Or add a small touch of animated bling to your logo to create a more memorable experience when emailing your customers. We think email signatures and animated GIFs are a match made in heaven.

How do I add an animated gif to my email signature?

bypass upload

Easy! Just upload your gif using our custom uploader and check the "bypass uploader" checkbox. Bypassing our uploader ensures that we don't touch the animated gif and keeps it looking good. You can add animated gifs to any image position, including banner images, in any of our email signature templates.
