Nowadays it is quite hard to find at least one smartphone or tablet which is not equipped with a high-resolution display or, in the case of Apple’s devices, the so-called “Retina display”. Also, more and more laptops are getting these onboard. The real power of a high-resolution screen is that it displays the same area as a conventional screen, but uses up to three times more pixels to do so.
This approach gives ultimate sharpness and depth to everything you can see on your display. The same applies to email signatures. You may have already noticed that images with low pixel density appear a bit blurry on high-resolution displays. And if we zoom in a little bit more – they just look really bad.
At first glance, email signatures may not seem that important, especially if you compare them with other things going on in your company. But if you delve deeper into this, you will find out that email signatures play a significant role when it comes to marketing, branding or maintaining a good relationship with your customers. What is more, disclaimers added to these email signatures may also prevent you from legal issues. Keep in mind that even the best-written email may not do its job if you are not confident enough about the company you are dealing with, so gaining a client’s trust should be a priority for each employee in your company. Certainly, a fine-looking email signature that contains useful information is a nice try to make a good impression. And if you combine a fine-looking signature with an attractive marketing banner, the results may surpass your expectations.

If you are reading this, I guess you are already well aware of how important it is to have a corporate signature inserted into your business emails. That’s great, but does the rest of your co-workers realize that, too? You can use your online correspondence as a platform to promote and spread your company’s values.

Have you ever tried to create a perfect email signature for your entire company? If so, you probably know that designing a good signature is sometimes far more complex than building a complete website. And this is because different email clients have their very own way of interpreting the HTML code you wrote, which makes the signature design be a far cry from what you expected. However, there are several rules that you can follow to achieve better results. Let’s get started.
To design your signature, you would need an HTML editor. The standard Windows Notepad is enough, but an editor with syntax highlighting and automatic completion (like Notepad++ or Sublime Editor) will be a much better option.

In this article, I will show you how to design a good email signature for students and increase your chances to be seen as a professional.
Make it easy for others to recognize you
It is especially important in conversations inside your college or university. You could provide others with just your name, but it is not enough. Professors who have to reply to many students from different groups are unlikely to remember each and every name. Imagine a situation in which, after a hundredth reply in a single day, a professor has to ask the sender from which group they are. Instead of trying their patience, it is better to provide your recipients with all necessary contact and personal details straight away.

Such a signature will become your personal business card, inviting its viewers to click every link included in it. Here are some tips you should follow:
Grab the attention
Grabbing the attention is one of the most crucial, and at the same time, the most difficult properties of an email signature. If the recipient of your message is not interested by your design, they will be unlikely to click any links you may provide, or even remember the name of your company. It is also very easy to overdo it. In this case, instead of awakening curiosity, the signature will leave a feeling of distaste. Therefore, it is crucial to focus on this aspect first, as it determines the final formatting of the email signature.
Sometimes, when using your Office 365 Outlook on the web (OWA), you might experience a problem when trying to set an email signature for your account.
