You should know about e-mail signature (layout, placement, where to use)
Business email signatures typically consist of three primary components - key contact information, company logo, and one or more hyperlinks. Of these, it is generally the logo that drives the layout. Logos can be more-or-less horizontal, squarish / roundish, or vertical. We’ve developed two primary layouts that we generally employ, depending on the shape of the logo.
While we are willing and able to execute almost any design you have in mind, the ten years we’ve spent in designing email signatures has taught us to focus more than anything on the way the signatures actually perform in day-to-day use. Performance, that is, the way they display when someone receives an email message is the one true measure of success. If you had to quantify this measure of success, you’d want to look at:
How frequently does your email signature appear perfectly?
When it doesn’t appear perfectly, is all your contact information still readily available?
Does your signature create readability problems on smartphones?
When your signature degrades, does the degraded version render acceptably, or is it really a mess?
Is the signature you are using as technically reliable as is possible?
Assessing the content requirements and arriving at the optimal layout is always the first step in a successful email signature program.
also for the use of fonts, we strongly recommend to use existing fonts on google fonts (https://fonts.google.com/)
because the font you want as the font in your signature, not necessarily the recipient of the email has/has not yet installed the font on the device.

Android has not been able to support for input custom signature/Html/gif from smartphones. Android can only display the signature sent/send from the desktop.
Q : I use Outlook on a Windows PC and the logo in my signature seems big & blurry.
A : Newer versions of Windows allow you to increase the display size to either 125% or 150% of the actual size. This can be nice for reading text, but will cause most images to appear blurry. The more enlarged they get, the blurrier they become. If you have your computer set to enlarge the display size, you may notice that the graphics in your email signature get larger and blurrier as you email back and forth with someone.
Q : The links in my signature don’t work.
A : Links in email messages never work while you’re in “compose mode” in your email program - that is, composing a new message or typing a response to a message you’ve received. Thank you :)
