How To Add an Email Signature in Gmail

When you create emails using Gmail, you have the option to add a custom signature at the bottom of your exchanges. The signature feature is great for those who usually end their emails with the same text, and both the text and images in your signature are visible on desktop and mobile.

One example of a Gmail signature might be one that includes your name, job title, and contact information, all accompanied by your company's logo. This FAQ will show you how you can easily insert an email signature into your Gmail emails.


Adding a Signature to Gmail Emails

Click the gear icon in the top-right corner of your Gmail account interface, then click Settings.

Toward the bottom of the page you will find the Signature option. It is disabled by default. To enable it, simply fill in the field below the No Signature option:


You can use HTML, links, and different fonts when drafting your Gmail signature. However, note that, in order to add an image to your gmail signature, the image must be hosted online (on Drive or on an external hosting website, like ImageShack) because the interface only accepts URLs, with no direct upload possible:


Once you have your image's URL, simply click the small Add picture icon and paste your logo's or picture's URL.

If you need additional inspiration for your signature, there are several websites, like MySignature, that offer Gmail signature templates.

Finish up by clicking the Save Changes option at the very bottom of the page:


Create an Email Signature on Android

The process to create an email signature on Android is slightly different than the process of creating one on a desktop or laptop.


The signature that you create in the Gmail app will be used for all messages in the app. Similarly, if you have created an email signature in the web version, your email signature will remain the same for all emails sent from the web version. These two signatures will exist simultaneously, so be sure that you would like two have two distinct signatures before creating an in-app one, or be sure to use the same signature for both.

To create an email signature on Android, open the Gmail app. In the top-left corner, tap the Menu button. Go to the bottom of the page, then tap Settings. Choose the account where you would like to add an email signature, then tap Signature. Enter the text for your signature, then tap OK.
