Email Signature Generator: FAQs & Troubleshooting

How do I use this tool?

1) Enter your details to populate your signature

2) Add your social media links in the 'social' tab

3) Customise your design preferences in the 'style' tab

To add your new email signature to your email client, simply follow these steps:

3)  Paste your new email signature into the email signature editor on your email client (Gmail, Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.) Again, to do this use Ctrl + V on PC or command + V on Mac.

I'm on mobile - how do I select and copy my signature?

As the ‘select signature’ button is not available on mobile devices, copying and pasting your signature is a little different on mobile. Here's how to do it:

1) On mobile, you need to select your signature manually before copying it to your clipboard. To ensure you highlight all of your signature -- including all the styling codes -- select the signature along with the line above and below your signature as in the image below.

2) Click 'copy' and then paste it into your email client's signature editor. 

NOTE: Some mobile devices only paste text by default; IOS is typical of this. You must paste your signature, then shake the device to be given the option to undo the formatting changes and ensure your signature looks the way you intended.


Why doesn't my email signature look as expected?

If your signature doesn't look as expected, don't worry, this can be fixed easily enough. Here's some solutions to try:

  • Try using a different web browser to create your signature. Some web browsers don't copy the formatting along with the text and this changes with each update of the browsers.

  • Copy the source code of your signature and paste that directly into your email client's signature file. To do that, generate your signature and click on the 'get source code' button. A text box will slide out containing the properly formatted source code of your email signature. Copy your source code and follow the instructions which apply to your email client.
