Email Signature Guidelines

Email Signature Guidelines

Consistent email signatures deliver a visually coherent look across all departments and offices. Consider your email signature your digital business card. Please note the following guidelines:

  • Font and size: Calibri, 11 point
    Email body font should match but can be slightly larger
  • Include two hyphens (--) as the first line of your mail signature — this signals to most mail clients not to display your signature repeatedly in replies and long threads.
  • Do not abbreviate elements of titles or department names.
  • Always include your mailing and physical addresses (may vary by department) and your email address.
  • Always include your office phone number. Otherwise, list only the phone and fax number(s) at which you prefer to be reached (numbers separated by periods).
  • If including preferred pronouns, guidance is provided below.
  • When applicable, professional designations or certifications may be placed directly after your name: Bob Chautauqua, AIA
  • Do not include the salutation from your message (Sincerely, Best regards, etc.) in your signature.
  • Personal quotations or philosophical statements should not be included as part of your signature. It is important to avoid the potential confusion of external audiences assuming a particular statement represents the Institution’s official vision, ideology or brand promise.
  • Watermarked, colored, patterned or photographic backgrounds in emails are not to be used as they often make correspondence difficult to read and are not always compatible with other email programs.
  • When needed/applicable, a confidentiality clause or other disclaimer can be included at the bottom of the signature: This e-mail message is intended only for the personal use of the recipient(s) named above. If you are not an intended recipient, you may not review, copy or distribute this message. If you have received this communication in error, please notify the sender immediately by e-mail and delete the original message.

See below for templates.


 

Email Signature Templates 

Copy the appropriate template below (including the "--") and paste into a new signature text field under Outlook's Preferences menu (desktop and web-based). If necessary, change font to Calibri. Delete all red text and any unneeded fields. Refer to guidelines above for required fields. 

NOTE: These standards will not accommodate all variables across the organization. Variations, exceptions or additions to this format should be referred to the Department of Marketing and Communications for guidance. It is also expected that you may use several variations of your signature, based on time of year and/or audience.
