How to Make a Custom Email Signature Tag


Custom email tags, also called signatures or postscripts, let you automatically add text to the bottom of each email you send, without having to add it each time. Think of it as a letterhead or personal stationary for email. Customize your email messages by adding your contact information or words of wisdom to your email tag.


  • Log into your email account.

  • Click "Options" at the top right of the page, then select "More Options" from the drop-down menu.

  • Select "Signature" from the list along the left side of the screen.

  • Click in the circle to the left of the words "Show a signature on all outgoing messages."

  • Write your tag in the empty box and click "Save Changes" toward the top-left of the page.


  • Log into your Gmail account.

  • Click the gear icon at the top-right of the screen and select "Mail Settings" from the drop-down menu.

  • Scroll to the section titled "Signature" and click in the circle at the top-left of the empty text box. This is the circle beneath the one that is labeled "No Signature."

  • Write the tag that will appear at the bottom of all of your emails.

  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes."

Tips & Warnings

  • Consult the "Help" menu and perform a search with the word "signature" if you have trouble adding the tag.
  • Choose your tag carefully and remember that each person who receives an email from will see it.
