Create Email Signature GMail

As explained in our Email Signature tutorial, including contact information with each and every email you send is important to developing future sales and providing information on how clients can get ahold of you.

In this tutorial we are going to create an email signature in GMail.

  2. Select Settings link in the top right.

    Setting screen will appear with General tab selected

  3. Scroll down to Signature.
  4. Select the radio button beside the empty text box.
  5. Type the information you wish to have in your signature in the empty text box.
  6. Scroll futher down the page until you see the Save Changes button.
  7. Click the Save Changes button.

    GMail goes back to your Inbox.

That was pretty easy. Now to test if it worked.

Now that you have a signture set up you should test that it is working and looking the way you wanted it to.

  1. From your Inbox, click the Compose Mail link in the top left.

    A new screen will appear with an empty new email and your signature included

    Can one set up multiple signatures, depending on the audience? I can do this in Outlook!

    Please advise. Thanks!!

    I think the previous question was: Can we create multiple signatures in gmail like one can do when using outlook? I write an array of different emails to different parties, so I was hoping I could pick and choose myself.


  3. Jeremy, it appears you cannot in the Gmail interface.

    Note that you can create only one signature in Gmail (unlike in Outlook where you can create several signatures to choose from).

    But… if you pick up your mail via an email client then you could.

    How can you get signature at the top of email messages?
    I can only see this:
    “(appended at the end of all outgoing messages)” is this possible to change?

    • Why would you want your signature at the top of your email messages? Signatures go at the end of your message.

        When you hit reply to an email you want your signature at the top of the email so they dont have to scroll through all the old emails just to see your reply. Your reply should be at the top of the email so its the first thing you see. Only a few people do the bottom thing and its very unprofessional. I cant believe google does not give people a choice.
