Creating a company email signature is not easy, there are a lot of different things that you need to consider. Email signature designs can be very different, depending on what industry you are in. For example, artists and designers often have more colorful email signatures than people within the IT sector. For this post, I have pulled together a wide selection of company email signature examples to help you decide what will work for you.
There are many different ways to create your email signature for your company, for further tips see my article about how to create the perfect email signature.
This first example has everything centered. Typically email signatures are aligned to the left-hand side, this might be a good way to stand out a little more.
This example from ‘Comtech’ is a perfect example of a company email signature that will look equally nice on a mobile device. Because it is so slim and left align, it will fit perfectly to the width of most smart phones.
Most companies chose to have any imagery below the contact information. This one from ‘Fluid Creativity’ is a great example of how having the imagery along side the contact information can give it a lot more exposure. This way, the recipient does not have to scroll down to actually see the image. Therefore increases the chance of the image being seen and clicked on.
Email signatures are also a great promotional tool. You might use it to promote an upcoming event or new product. In this next example, Steve has used his to promote his latest book. The company email signature can be a hugely effective advertising space, just think about how many emails leave your company every day and how many people you could reach with a small email signature advertisement.
This email signature from Idaho Milk is one of my favourites. Everything is perfectly aligned and spaced. They have some small (not intrusive) links to their website etc, and an advertisement at the bottom which is separated from the main signature.
Below is the current Crossware company email signature design. Every email that leaves our company will have this layout, including those sent from a mobile. We chose to have ours slightly different to most, we like to have a header as well as the footer where our main contact information is. Having a header means that the main part of our signature is not as cluttered, which allows us to have an advertising banner.
Each month we change the advertising banner to something new. This gives a call to action on every email that leaves Crossware.

This final company email signature example arrived in my inbox just this week. Node is a creative company, which is portrayed in their clean and well designed signature. When viewed on a mobile, the three blue links drop down underneath.
As I said at the beginning, there are so many different ways to create a company email signature. The design and layout is only a small part, but I hope these examples can help you.
