How to Create a Gmail Signature with Your Logo

Creating a Gmail signature with your logo is an easy way to build your brand and make sure that everyone sees your business name. This can be especially helpful if you're not sending regular emails but are using Gmail more as a digital filing cabinet.

How to create a Gmail signature with a logo

  • The first step is to create your logo. If you don't have a logo, you'll need to design one using either web base tool.

  • Next, crop and save the image in whatever size you want it to be displayed in Gmail. For example, if your business card has 4"x2", make sure the width is around 400 pixels and the height is around 200 pixels (you can also use square dimensions like 400x400).

  • Finally, insert it into Gmail by clicking on Settings > Mail > Signature:

1. Create your logo

Once you've created your logo, it's time to add it to your email signature. Gmail allows users to include two logos: one small and one large. The small logo will be visible on the top right corner of every email sent from your account, while the large logo will appear in the bottom right corner of every email that includes a signature with an image attached (more about this later).

To get started, log into Gmail and click on "Settings" from the top-right menu bar. Next select "Signature" from under "Personal information." This will open up a new page where you can edit or create a new signature for yourself!

2. Crop and save the image

Once you’ve found your image, you can use it in a few different ways. The simplest is to upload it as an attachment to an email message using the Attach button below the body of your message (it looks like a paperclip). Just make sure that your logo is smaller than 5MB and not a jpeg file.

If you want to include the logo in your signature (which will appear at the top of every email), there are two options. You can either save it as an image file and include that with HTML code by pasting this into your Gmail signature:

The second way is to use CSS custom fonts, which allow you to insert special characters into emails without having them displayed by default—like emoticons or emojis sometimes do!

The way you do this depends on whether or not your email client supports CSS custom fonts. If it does, you’ll just need to add the following line of code into your signature: If your client doesn’t support this feature (like Gmail), then all you have to do is add a font-family property and specify the name of the font (this can be found by right-clicking on any file in Microsoft Word).

3. Insert your logo into Gmail

Once you've opened a blank email, click on the gear icon and select 'Settings.' Then, click on the tab that says 'Signature' and look for an option that says, 'Edit signature.'

Paste your logo into the box labeled 'Insert image.' Your logo will appear in this box when you send an email from now on!

4. Make sure you're sending it right

  • Make sure your logo is the right size. The ideal Gmail signature should be no larger than 755 pixels wide, which is the maximum height for a Gmail signature. Your logo should also fit within this space without being cropped or distorted by any margins. If your logo needs to be resized for this purpose, you’ll want to use an image editor like Photoshop or Microsoft Paint; many email clients will automatically adjust image dimensions when they resize the entire message body and leave text unaltered, which could result in misaligned images or other problems.

  • Send it to the right person! You probably have dozens of different contacts who need access to your logo file—and not all of them will know how or where it’s stored on your computer. So before you upload anything into Gmail, make sure that all employees who are authorized can access its location (or at least know how).


Creating a Gmail signature with your logo is easy, and can be done in just a few minutes. If you follow the steps above you should be able to create your own Gmail signature quickly, and have it up on your emails in no time
