Want to know how to add a logo to your email signature, but you’re not sure where to start or what to do? Well, you’ve come to the right place.
Using ZippySig to add a logo to your email signature is by far the easiest and most time effective way to do it. However, the purpose of this article is to show you how to do it manually.
One thing to keep in mind when manually adding a logo to an email signature is that you won’t have control of the exact placement of your logo. This is because the signature editors in email platforms are usually quite basic and don’t allow you to add HTML elements into it, except if you paste them in.
Before adding your logo to your email signature, ensure you have your logo saved on your computer and the image format is preferably PNG. Also, check to make sure its the right size before going any further.
