How to Add Gmail Signature - Create Gmail Signature

Create a Gmail signature

An email signature is a text, such as your contact information or a favorite quote, that is automatically added at the end of Gmail messages as a footer.

Add or change a signature

You can put up to 10,000 characters in your signature.

  1. Open Gmail
  2. In the upper right, click on Settings, then on Settings.
  3. In the "Signature" section, add your signature text in the box. If you wish, you can format your message by adding an image or changing the text style.
  4. At the bottom of the page, click Save Changes.

Add a signature if you are using the "Send mail as" function

If you use the "Send mail as" function to send from different addresses in your account, you can add a different signature for each address.

To select an address, use the drop-down menu above the signature text box on the Configuration page.

If you don't see the drop-down menu:

  1. Open the Accounts and Import settings page.
  2. Verify that your addresses are listed in the "Send mail as" section.

Troubleshooting Gmail Signature

Extra characters added to my signature

If you see additional characters in your signature, it is because some versions of Gmail do not support features such as bold or italic.

To remove additional characters, delete any special format in your signature.

I can't format my signature

If you see "Plain Text" above the signature box, you must deactivate the plain text mode before editing your signature.

  • Open Gmail
  • Click on Compose.
  • In the lower right, click More options More options.
  • Uncheck "Plain Text Mode".

Unable to add an image

If you added a photo or image of Google Drive, you must share your image publicly so that it appears in your signature. Note: If you use Gmail with your work or school account, ask your administrator to allow you to share images publicly.
Search for an image, such as your company logo, then get the image URL.
Add your own image to Google and use that URL.
