Compatibility with Gmail across the board
We have spent hundreds of hours by now testing our html signatures with every major email client. Gmail is one of the most popular options when it comes to email considering you can use it for free, for businesses using Google Workspace (formerly GSuite) and it can be used in a variety of ways including the Gmail website, Gmail mobile app for iPhone, or you can purely use Gmail as an email server and hook it up to another desktop email program like Mac Mail or Thunderbird.

Our email signature generator doesn't limit you to a few templates, rather it is a free-form custom builder that allows you to add as many fields and images as are needed. You can add as many phone numbers as needed. You can add a logo, ad banner, and partner logos without issue.
You have the capability to create the kind of signature with the exact content that you need.
Works For Teams
You can use the generator to building an email signature just for yourself, or your entire team. Easily convert your single signature into a generator link. Then you can choose which fields are editable and which fields be locked into the signature.
Then send out the link to your team and all they have to do is visit the microsite, fill in their personal details, and copy and paste the signature into their email client of choice using our helpful instructions. It's the easiest and most hands off way for a company to manage email signatures for their employees.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does this email signature generator work with Gmail?
Yes! Our email signature generator has been tested extensively with Gmail.

The Gmail Android mobile app does support some HTML signatures, but has issues with images.
Can I create an email signature in Gmail?
Gmail gives you the ability to create simple email signatures directly in the Gmail settings. You can format basic text, add links, and upload a logo. If the signature you want to create will be basic, it can work well for you. You will hit limitations with it if want to design something more complex, especially signatures with multiple columns and images. Thats where tools like this email signature generator help with our starting templates, a drag and drop editor to move elements around, and a variety of helpful fields and features can help you create a professional email signature quickly and easily.
How do I create a Gmail HTML signature?

Can I add an image or a logo in my signature in Gmail?
Yes, Gmail allows you to add images into your email signature. Using their simple toolbar you can click on the icon with the photo (square with mountains) and then choose to add one from the web, your Google drive, or your computer. You can only resize the photo to preset "Small", "Medium", or "Large" sizes, and you cannot crop it there. If you are looking to do more advanced cropping and resizing you may want to consider an email signature generator like Signature.email. Read more in our guide about adding images to Gmail signatures.
Can I use social media icons in an email signature in Gmail?
Yes, you can either find some and upload them yourself, or use our capable email signature generator to add them for you. If you prefer to do it yourself you can find a list of social media icons here. Once there you can download them from the site you can open the Outlook signature and click the Add Image icon (square with mountains). Then you will want to click on it and press the Add Link icon with the chain link. Otherwise, if you want the process to be easier, feel free to try out our email signature generator where you can add in any social media icon customizing the shape, color and link in a matter of seconds.
How do I install an email signature on the Gmail Website?
Once you are logged into Gmail you will want to click on the Gear icon towards the top right of the screen. This will open the Quick Settings sidebar menu, but we need to click on the "See all settings" button to see all the settings. In the General tab scroll down to where you see Signature and click the Create New button. Name your signature. Finally start editing or paste in the signature you copied from another source. If you are looking for more specific instructions that include screenshots, you can view them here.
How do I install an email signature on the Gmail iPhone Mobile App?
Technically the iOS Gmail app only supports a simple plain text "Mobile Signature". This is a basic text signature that cannot have any text formatting, links or images. But if you have an email signature set up in the Gmail Website, then when you turn off the mobile signature functionality in the app it will automatically appends your full email signature (which can include formatting, links and images) to your message. You will not see the signature as you are writing/editing your email, but if you send an email to yourself you will see it.
Are there limitations or disadvantages to using email signatures with Gmail?
Gmail handles email signatures well, and has made great strides in the recent years to opening up signature possibilities within their applications. A few things to be aware of:
The Gmail web application has a limit of 10,000 characters in an email signature. This limit includes both the content of your signature as well as the code itself. In our experience this is more than enough for most email signatures, but if you have a really long disclaimer or a significant amount of content, this could become an issue.
The other thing to be aware of is how the iPhone mobile app handles email signatures. It technically only supports plain text email signatures, but allows you to automatically append your signature set up in the Gmail website onto your mobile email messages, which works great.
It's a mystery why the Android mobile app doesn't use the same behavoir as the iOS mobile app. It seems to support HTML signatures but has issues with images which makes it a non-starter.
