How to Add a Professional Handwritten Signature to Your Email

Präsentiert von Exclaimer

Add a handwritten signature to your email

How an email comes across is a public representation of the sender and the organization. While the electronic format does not require formal letterheads and wax seals, email signatures have become the virtual equivalent.

However, email signatures can lack the personal touch that comes with signing your name on paper. To really make your email stand out in a recipient’s inbox, you can add a handwritten signature to give an extra level of professionalism to your message.

It’s actually fairly easy to add a handwritten signature to every email you send. You can use old fashioned methods like writing your signature on a piece of paper and uploading an image of it to your computer. There are also various free signature creator tools available online where you draw your signature using your mouse. Essentially, learning how to make a handwritten signature that can be added to your email is not as complicated as it first seems.
