Creating a Campus Email Signature

Note: Here are instructions for creating a signature in Outlook

In your preferred email client, create a signature within the following parameters:

  • Use Helvetica or Arial for the font. 
    • Why? The campus fonts are proprietary, and may not be readable on all e-mails. Campus encourages the use of universal fonts. 
  • Make all the text in your signature 12pt.
  • Bold your name at the top and include the following elements: 

Firstname Lastname
[Pronouns optional]
Title
Unit
UC Davis
(530) 123-4567
email@ucdavis.edu

Add a Sticker! 

To include an email sticker, right-click (or control-click on a Mac) on the image you want from the selection below, choose "Copy Image" and paste the image in your email signature block.

Use one primary email signature.

You may add multiple campaign / identity / initiative / ally stickers.

  • Additional campaign signatures: these may be timely campaigns such as Aggies Vote. These often link to a current campus or systemwide campaign.
  • Additional identity / ally signatures: Many initiatives offer identifying signatures such as FirstGen, AB540 ally, Guardian Scholar Ally, etc.
