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
1 Joe Smith,
2 Joe Smith,
