Your Email Signature Still Matters

NoBisonLogoJuly 2, 2019 - The bison logo. Crazy colors. Funky fonts. I’ve seen all of these things in email signatures. While it might be tempting to want to jazz up your signature to show off your personality, it’s important to follow the NDSU email signature standards

Remember, Bison mascot logos are trademarked and are the property of NDSU Athletics, and are not to be used in your email signature. They are to be only used for materials related to athletics, or with permission from NDSU Athletics. All NDSU departments, centers and academic units are required to follow consistent university branding guidelines and may not create additional logos.

When email signatures were originally developed, they were an easy way for people to include their name and contact information at the end of an email. Since then, they’ve evolved into electronic business cards.

Much of the work we do focuses on building connections, some of them through social media platforms. If you’d like to add appropriate social media icons to your email signature, Bob Bertsch has developed a tutorial.

If your email signature is consistent and looks professional it will convey that our organization is consistent and professional. Not only will your signature communicate your professionalism to anyone who receives it, but it will also provide instant brand recognition for NDSU.

If you have any questions about creating your email signature please let me know.
