Create Professional Email Signatures with ProgramMatek

What is an HTML email signature?

To be precise, all email signatures are HTML email signatures since all major email providers (including Gmail) show content structured in HTML. However, most people use this term to describe a sophisticated email signature that includes images, GIFs, icons, and complex visual designs or formats. Unfortunately, creating a signature like that is not easily achievable with Gmail alone. But don’t worry, with ProgramMatek’s signature builder, you can effortlessly create a rich HTML email signature.

Can you use HTML in Gmail signature?

Absolutely! You can definitely use HTML in your Gmail signature. However, it requires a bit of inter-tab acrobatics. You’ll need to employ an HTML editor to copy and paste the HTML into Gmail’s settings. But why go through all that trouble? ProgramMatek offers a free and user-friendly alternative with their HTML signature generator. It’s the easier and less time-consuming option.

Using custom HTML directly in Gmail settings is not possible

Sadly, Gmail does not provide an HTML editor in its email signature settings. This means you can’t code your signature or edit its HTML using the Gmail editor. However, you can insert a complete HTML snippet externally and then make limited small changes using Gmail’s editor.

How to insert HTML in your Gmail signature without it breaking

Inserting an HTML email signature in Gmail is easy. The challenge lies in doing it without the signature breaking. If not done properly, your signature may end up distorted, cut off, with images not showing, or even displaying as plain text.

If you’ve already encountered one of these problems, make sure to check out the FAQs section at the bottom of the page.

Here are two ways to add an HTML signature to Gmail:

  1. By creating your own code
  2. By using ProgramMatek’s HTML signature builder and letting it install the code for you in Gmail

Keep in mind that when adding your signature code, it’s important for it to be responsive, meaning it should resize to fit different devices and screen sizes.

1) Insert a responsive HTML signature in Gmail with automatic installation

The best way, hands down, to add a responsive HTML signature to your Gmail account is by using ProgramMatek’s free signature builder. You won’t need to invest time or effort into editing code or styling a makeshift signature in word processing or design apps.

Simply input your personal details and the signature features you desire, such as social media icons, images, custom buttons, banners, disclaimers, and more. ProgramMatek will build a professional HTML signature for you and automatically install it in your Gmail account. All you need to do is sign up with your Gmail account. However, if you prefer not to sign up, you can export your signature as HTML and manually paste it into Gmail’s settings. The choice is yours.

2) Insert your own HTML in Gmail signature – in 7 quick steps

It’s important to note that common word-processing apps like Microsoft Word or Google Docs cannot be used to create a working HTML signature. These apps import unwanted styling, which may break your original design. To create your own signature design in HTML without directly coding it yourself, follow these steps:

  1. Design your signature in Word or Google Docs.
  2. Paste your signature into a free HTML editor and click the “Clean” button to remove all styling.
  3. Edit your signature, applying the desired styling and spacing.
  4. Copy your signature from the left panel (not the raw HTML on the right side) and paste it into the Gmail signature editor.
  5. Ensure your signature appears as intended. Adjust spacing or reload images through the editor if necessary.
  6. Scroll down the page and hit the “Save changes” button.
  7. Open a new message window to verify that your signature is displaying correctly.

It’s not possible to add an HTML signature on Gmail mobile app

Unfortunately, the Gmail Android and iOS apps are much more basic compared to their desktop counterparts. These mobile apps only allow plain text and do not support HTML or image insertion. Therefore, you’ll have to settle for a plain text signature instead if you primarily use the Gmail mobile app. For more information, read more about Gmail mobile signatures.
