Are you looking for a way to make your email signature stand out from the rest?
Animated name and logo signatures for email (Gmail, Outlook, etc.), the web, and much more. Common formats are GIF and video. Learn more or get started with your own custom signature below.
Animated signatures might be just what you need. They can add some fun and personality to your emails, and they can also be used to convey information in a quick and easy-to-understand way.
There are many different ways to create animated signatures. Some people use software programs like Adobe Photoshop or After Effects, while others use online tools that allow them to create animations without having any prior design experience. No matter which method you choose, there are a few things to keep in mind when creating your animation.
Yes, a moving signature GIF can include your name, logo or icons that move around the footer. An email signature GIF will typically be horizontal in dimensions at the end of your message.
Depending on your email provider (Gmail, Outlook, or others) there will be settings to modify your signature. Quite often these settings are located under your profile but for specific instructions be sure to check out the ‘How To Install’ section above.
Yes, not only outlook but also gmail and other email templates allow for animated GIFs. In these cases you might consider a logo GIF to be dropped into another template.
If you’re thinking of animating an entire paragraph (or more) of text, I might consider using a video message instead. Text-based landing page animations can often be far more engaging (and sent via email) than a footer animation might do.
Two of the more popular ways to embed signature GIFs are within email or powerpoint (footer section of your email). Here are two quick videos to visually explain how to do this.
Typically a GIF will loop in a continuous animation within a 5-10 second duration. Within this duration of 5-10 seconds, minimal effects, styles and animation should be applied in order to reduce file size and loading times. Another consideration is speed, faster is not always better as the goal is to have something appealing to look at.
An email signature logo is an image that is automatically included in the body of an email message. It can be a static or animated GIF, or a JPEG file. The image is usually displayed at the bottom of the message, but it can be positioned anywhere in the email.
An email signature logo GIF is a great way to add brand recognition in the footer of your message. It can contain information about your company, such as its logo, product or services. You can also include contact details, such as URLs for your website or social media page. The animated GIF gives the email extra visual appeal and allows recipients to recognize you and your brand quickly.
Typically I might recommend a logo GIF (animated without text) to stand next to your regular contact details. Installation is as easy as drag-and-drop and resize-friendly.
Whether you are using Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo or another email provider, GIFS are allowed but the instructions to insert or embed the GIFs may be different between providers. The video above shows how to install via Gmail but the location to embed will typically be in the ‘settings’ tab.
Written style animations are usually done letter-by-letter. This type of animation looks like a pen or pencil is creating the animation. An example of this is shown at the top of the page.
Perhaps you’re looking for something to help supplement a digital greeting card or email footer. Seasonal messaging or company announcements can be created in a landing page message and either linked or attached to an email.
Thank you GIFs are typically embedded above the regular text in your email signature. This is often swapped out for a best regards or other affirmative message. If you’re interested in getting your own you can do so with the form at the bottom of this page.
Perhaps you want more than just your name animated? Let’s get fancy and include your name, email, phone number and more. If you’re looking for something that includes all your company information that is animated, I recommend a looping GIF option.
If however, you’re looking for your entire email signature to be interactive (without animation), I would look into the HTML signature route. This allows for buttons, social icons, phone numbers and email to be automatically directed all in one centralized location.
Custom creations can be started below. Options include, name, logos, icons and more. Start by choosing your GIF type and submitting the form below.
If you’re looking to get your own name signature GIF, check out the pricing options below. The most popular option is going to be the standard signature GIF. This allows for name, contact information or a custom message to embed into your email signature.
The advanced logo GIF is going to be for those who want to include a custom logo GIF along with basic contact info.
