I'm sure at some point a peer or even a client has had a beautiful signature and you wondered how in the heck did they make it? It's pretty simple!
SAMPLE EMAIL SIGNATURE
You'll need 2 website, 1 computer program, 1 phone app:
Pages or Microsoft Word
1. CREATE YOUR ACCENTS IN OVER
First, I created a cute border for my headshot (courtesy of Andres Lopez Films) in the Over app. I used the circle cropping tool and add the copper foil and line drawings to accent my brand. You can add anything to this part! Other great accents to create are buttons and social media icons.
2. GET IT ORGANIZED IN GOOGLE DRIVE
Create a folder in yoru Google Drive and lable it "Email Signature" and upload the accents you'll be adding to your signautre once you copy it in.
3. CREATE THE FRAME OF THE SIGNATURE IN PAGES/WORD
In either of the programs, create a 2x1 table. Using the left side as a place holder for your image (copy & paste for now, we will replace later). The right side will be for your information including, but not limited to, your name, office hours, contact, social media/website, and whatever you can think of! Once you have done this you will want to turn off the borders for the entire table and the highlight and copy the entire table.
4. PASTE INTO YOUR GMAIL SETTINGS
Paste the table into the email signature space in your Gmail settings. Now click right in front of the photo you pasted and follow the steps below:
> Drive > select your photo
Now deleted the original place holder and save your settings. Send a test email to a friend and get to sending clients professional and polished emails!
Until Next Time,
