Where to Find and Create Customized Email Signatures

You may know that most popular email services like Yahoo!, Gmail, AOL and Outlook let you create custom email signatures directly through their user settings. In each of these services you can format your signature and add links to improve the design a bit. But if you're looking for a more professional look to your email signature, you may consider a service called: Wisestamp - which integrates directly with Yahoo!, Gmail, AOL and/or Live, Outlook or Hotmail.

Signature Options:

After creating a free account with your Facebook or Email, you'll find their page setup is pretty straight forward in regard to filling in your details:


You'll see your entries reflected on a preview screen as you enter your info: 


Adding Social Media Profiles

You'll notice as you scroll down on the main screen a few additional options on the left-hand column. When you get to 'Social Profiles' simply click their 'Add another profile' link to add a variety of social media accounts & other online stores, videos & portfolio sites:


Depending on the type of email correspondence you plan to use this signature for, you'll want to pick relevant accounts to link. For example, non-professional email signatures may have links to your personal social profiles or fun YouTube or Pinterest accounts, whereas professional signatures may link to your LinkedIn profile or other online portfolio sites like Behance. If you click on the 'Add another profile' link you'll find a pop-up menu listing a variety of platforms to link to:


If you hover your mouse over any of the icons listed above while logged into the Wisestamp website, a little menu will popup, telling you the website which each icon represents.

Extra Options

A final option you may consider, can be found by scrolling below your social icon options. These 'apps' offer additional features you might consider. For instance, you may want to feature your latest YouTube video, Amazon Book, or latest Tweet below your signatures. They have some really clever design features that you can easily mess around with until you find a combination you like. A few of their options are displayed in a screenshot below:


These features are totally optional, so if you find it makes your signature look a bit cluttered, that's something to think about. In the image above you'll notice a tiny down-facing arrow highlighted - if you click there a drop-down display menu will appear with different applications you can sort through:
