How to Create a Signature for Gmail

Have you ever wanted to create a personal signature for your Gmail like you have seen many others have done for theirs but couldn’t find the option? Look no further! This blog will show you exactly where to find it and how to create one using Gmail!

Step 1

First things first. You will want to open up Google Chrome and go to Gmail. In the Google Chrome Omnibox (Address bar), type in to direct you to your Gmail.


Step 2

While looking at your inbox, click the settings button in the top right corner of the window. In the drop-down menu that appears, click the settings tab. This will take you to your Gmail settings page.


Step 3

Scroll down the settings page until you see “Signature” on the left-hand side. This is the signature toggle for sent email. From here you want to click the bubble next to the left of the text box to turn on signatures.


Step 4

Now you are able to create your signature! The arrangement of the text box is similar to Google Docs with some slight changes and restrictions. The only notable difference is the limited fonts and text sizes.


Images and quotes can be integrated into your signature too! The same sizing options of small, medium, and large apply both the text and images to help create a uniform and professional signature.

Here is an example of a finished signature!
